The Things That Matter Now

I always thought this song was directly from my Father, Billy Masters, to me. And while it is nice to feel that way, it is also all about God and their relationship to Us. 

Some of the Biblical Relevance behind, the lyrics…from my study this week.

The Things that Matter now are what the Father Says about you….

What does the Father/God say about us?…and why is it important?

In Luke and in Matthew it says that God takes care of nature and the birds-and they don’t worry about what they are going to eat and encourages us to trust that we will also be provided for, and that he knows how many hairs are on our head. I understand this meaning that God cares very deeply about us each personally.  In Genesis it says that we are created in God’s image.

Many times, I notice that in the past many of  the thoughts in my head have been self incriminating, derogatory towards my body/actions and hurtful to myself. God loves us. When one of my friends says something evil about themselves or when I think hurtful thoughts I say to myself, “Don’t speak that way or treat God’s creation like that!”

The Things that Matter now are what the Father Says is True…

Some of the things that the Father says is true that I find particularly relevant to myself, others seeking chronic wellness and for our country.

2 Kings 20:5 “Go back and tell Hezekiah, the ruler of my people, ‘This is what the Lord, the God of your father David, says: I have heard your prayer and seen your tears; I will heal you.

Jeremiah 22:3 This is what the Lord says: Do what is just and right. Rescue from the hand of the oppressor the one who has been robbed. Do no wrong or violence to the foreigner, the fatherless or the widow, and do not shed innocent blood in this place.

I love you in Jesus’ name keep looking at me

John 6:26 Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, you are looking for me, not because you saw the signs I performed but because you ate the loaves and had your fill.

and you’ll Never be same

Hebrews 1:12 You will roll them up like a robe; like a garment they will be changed. But you remain the same, and your years will never end.”

There’s Nothing You’ve Done my Love Won’t Wash Away

God offers unconditional love and forgiveness, with God, all things are possible.

Ephesians 1:7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace

and when you seek me with all of your heart

Jeremiah 29:13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

Oh you’re gonna find out I am well Pleased with You

How nice to hear that our God is “Well Pleased” with us. I so often seek approval from my family figures who I look up to or my peers in the activism and entertainment world. God is saying that my singing pleases him.

Luke 3:22 and the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: “You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.”

Beloved children

Deuteronomy 33:12 About Benjamin he said: “Let the beloved of the Lord rest secure in him, for he shields him all day long, and the one the Lord loves rests between his shoulders.” (God takes the weight off of our burden).

Song of Songs 2:10 My beloved spoke and said to me, “Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, come with me.
