Obedience = God’s Will

Young, unknown,
untrained, unwanted,
yet unmoved!
David was chosen
by God himself,
despite being unapproved.
Willingness to obey,
faithful to his own,
a man after God’s own heart.
David won his victory
when asked to duty,
not knowing his vital part.
Don’t turn away
what God can give
when we simply obey.
The battle is fierce,
the army unkind,
but God will have his way.

Aaron Was Mightily Used

Set aside and chosen for God,
yet made of flesh, able to sin.
Aaron was mightily used
despite disobedience again and again.
A leader to the people,
responsible for cleansing and prayer.
God told Aaron certain things
to do to show he’s there.
The molten calf, conspiring with Miriam,
even death as a consequence,
did not keep God from using him.
God was his defense.
Just like Aaron, you and I
are made with a promise in mind.
Don’t get defeated and quit.
God can help you shine.
