He Will

He WillNow the word of the Lord,

who created us all;

He who formed each of us,

and asks us to stand tall.

In Him, we shall not fear,

for we have been redeemed;

He has summoned us each,

we are His, He has deemed.

As we pass through turmoil,

when the waters, they rage;

He will not let us sink,

He has numbered our days.

When we walk through the fire,

He’ll not let us be burned;

as we trust in His word,

hold hope in what we’ve learned.

For He is the Lord God,

the Ruler of all things;

He’ll be with us always,

He is why freedom rings.

To Him we are precious,

and honored in His sight;

He loves us and keeps us,

for His children, He’ll fight.

(Responding to Isaiah 43:1-4)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that as we choose You, You fight for us. Thank You that though we will walk through trials and difficulties, You promise to be with us. Thank You that You are our strength, when our strength is gone; and You are our hope, even when things seem hopeless. Forgive us for our fears – the places where we struggle to trust You – and teach us how to truly trust in You. Thank You that You are always faithful, and that You love us and treasure us as Your precious children. May we walk boldly in Your love, so that many may come to know the freedom that is found in You alone. Amen.
