A Generation Not Known For Their Crowns, Or Success, But A King

Intimacy Recovered

It’s amazing to me, there are some songs… you can listen to them 1000 times over a decade, and they still transcend time.

Here are the lyrics to a worship song I listened to in my devotional time with God this morning. This song transcends time…

Jacobs Dream, By Jason Upton
(Spoken from God’s point of view)

Jacob really longed to be a hero
All I really wanted was a friend
I’m the way, the life, the truth
So tell Me Jacob when will the lying end?
And does the striving make you strong?
Because when I came to love on you
You fought me till the dawn
Finally Jacob’s lying down
And while he sleeps I will dream
Of a generation not known for their crowns,
Or success, but a King…
Who was not so much as interested in crowds, or
Pleasing men, but knowing Me

I have given Jacob’s generation the key of David, intimacy
To open up the doorway to the nations, and release
Revelation, of intimacy, with Me

Jacob had a dream for all the ages
Jacob had a drive to build a nation
But the fighting is in vain
If your only aim is to build your own great name

Because My dream’s not what you do
Jacob will you dream for Me
The way that I have dreamed for you

Make this, that generation. Give me and my family and friends a heart not consumed with crowns, or success, but a King. Help me to be not so interested in crowds, or pleasing men, but knowing You, my God. -My prayer today

Here’s a verse I read from the Bible this morning:

Dear children, keep away from anything that might take God’s place in your hearts. (1 John 5:21 NLT)

A short blog today. I wanted to share my thoughts just in case, you, like me, have sometimes lost the key of David: Intimacy with God.

If you have, right now can be the moment when you reclaim that intimacy.

Dream Big,

  1. Love the verse you shared…staying away from something that can take the place of God is good advice (obviously since it’s in the Bible). If you’re around it, then there will always be the temptation to let it consume you and take you away from Him. Sometimes it’s easier to remove the temptation than fight it…sometimes you can’t remove it, and that’s when you need stength from above.

  2. I heard this song years ago. I couldn’t remember the name of it or who sang it. I’ve been meaning to google the lyrics I remembered so I could find it on iTunes. Your blog popped up. Thanks 🙂
