His Ways

His WaysMy thoughts are not your thoughts,

nor are your ways My ways;

the Lord’s declaration,

to hear all of our days.

For just as the heavens,

are higher than the earth;

so are the ways of God,

in Whom we find new birth.

As His thoughts aren’t our thoughts,

like the fast falling rain;

His words offer new life,

remove blemish and stain.

No word goes out empty,

all accomplish His plans;

for this purpose He spoke,

and proclaimed His commands.

If we go out in joy,

He will lead us in peace;

all creation will sing,

and worship at His feet.

An everlasting sign,

is the Lord’s great renown;

it will not be destroyed,

in Him, our hearts are found.

(Responding to Isaiah 55:8-13)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that Your thoughts are far greater than our thoughts, and Your ways are much higher than our ways. Thank You that our salvation is not dependent on our abilities, but rather is secured through Your faithfulness. Forgive us for doubting what has been declared, and for dismissing Your deity. Please help us to remember that You hold all in the palm of Your hand, and nothing is too difficult for You. Grow our faith God, and help us to passionately pursue You with all of our days. May many come to know Your joy and peace that surpasses all understanding, as we walk in faithful obedience unto You. Amen.

He Has Given

God does not give us

a spirit of fear;

He fans into flames,

the truth that we hear.

His Spirit’s power,

to boldly proclaim,

the truth of His word,

without any shame.

With sincerest faith,

share of His great love,

for He gave His life,

His thoughts high above.

Be self-disciplined,

and follow His ways;

walk boldly in truth,

for all of our days.

As we have been saved,

willing may we give;

share of His great hope,

so others may live.

Grace be upon us,

as we follow Christ;

keep us from trouble,

let not sin entice.

“For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.” – (2 Timothy 1:7)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that when we choose to follow You, You equip us with Your Spirit, so that we may be bold as we grow in You. Teach us to walk in Your power, love and self-discipline, so that Your word is heard by all who long to hear. Forgive us for our fearfulness, and help us to grow in confidence in You. Thank You that You are always faithful, regardless of our faithfulness. Empower us to walk in truth all of our days, and may many come to know You and be saved. May we firmly hold the hope we have in You. Amen.
