Philippians Insight

If it is for the cause of Christ,
it is what it’s all about.
He is our assurance.
His peace erases all doubts.
Keep Him first,
and others before ourselves.
Be ready to stand alone.
Be ready to help.
Good and honest things
are all of good report.
Praise and worship to God
is what we are designed for.
Trust in Him,
and faith will bring peace.
Trusting in this peace
will never cease.

Misjudged Servants

A lot of souls are judged by others
to not be of God.
People say because they are different,
they just are not.
But those very people
are the examples God gave,
whether faithful, humble,
without complaining, or brave.
These misjudged souls
are the ones who just don’t judge.
They are so busy loving one another,
whether out of love or a must.
What does Jesus think
of these misjudged ones?
Would he have misjudged them
or would he have been one?

1 Samuel 18:13-14/Proverbs 16:7

A powerful message of Proverbs 16:7
is shown in David and Saul.
David’s wise behavior
made Saul’s pride fall.
Fear replaced vengeance
and prevented ill will.
The more wisely David behaved
the more frozen Saul stood still.
This wise behavior
also pleased the heart of God.
Though Saul sought to slay David,
to allow him, God would not.
It is true what God says.
Proverbs 16:7 is very wise.
Even the Philistines were at peace
though David killed Goliath before their eyes.

Faithful Compassion

How incredibly amazing
does Your word remind us
how You are.
So many times You blessed
and forgave Israel.
You were never too far.
Despite the whining,
the selfish complaining,
the ungrateful hearts.
You were loving
and merciful
to not depart.
God, Oh Father,
may we ever
praise
Your Holy name,
Your Holy grace,
Your Holy ways.

REJECTING GOD

Rejecting God is not wise,
even if the saint cries.
When God is rejected,
He feels neglected.
There is nothing to say
to change His way.
No sacrifice can replace
obedience to His face.
Rejecting what to do
will make Him reject you too.
Obey your Lord!
Love Him more and more.
If you will be true,
He will never reject you.

Communion With You

Communion with the Holy Ghost?
What an awesome thought.
To know we are comforted
by the blood with which we are bought.
The Holy Ghost, so precious and rare,
would actually commune with us?
We are so undeserving.
Somehow it seems so unjust.
Thank you, God, that You are so forgiving,
so willing to welcome us in.
I praise Your name
that Your mercy and grace have no end.
Please do, You’re welcome too,
to fellowship with me.
I cherish every moment You share.
It’s exactly what I need.

Unique Splendor

Your word and Your way
are so beautiful and unique.
You may share Your wisdom,
but not the glory of Your technique.
Heavens, earth, water, and land
are creations just from You.
No other man or god
could even try to do
the treasures in Your wind,
the lightnings with rain.
These are just a few splendors
that testify You reign.
Amaze, daze me,
keep me in awe of Your way.
I love to learn of You
and enjoy every precious day.
