“For His Glory”

“For His Glory”

Who are we that God notices us?
Creator of All; Transcendent King
Why did He send His Son to die?
On the Cross, a Perfect Offering

Why does He hear our prayers?
In Jesus, we have righteousness
How can we receive forgiveness?
When our sins to Him we confess

Why were we put upon this earth?
For His glory, and because He lives
What motivates us to live for Him?
Because He is ours; and we are His

Ephesians 2:4-7 (NASB)
4 But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us,
5 even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),
6 and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,
7 so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.

“Overcomers” (re-post)

“Overcomers”

As the sun rises, a brand new day dawns
We are held securely in the Master’s Hands
We cannot ever be separated from Him
We are kept safely in His sovereign plans

Darkness and light are both alike to Him
Nothing can conceal itself from His sight
Christ has clothed us in His righteousness
We are more than overcomers in His might

I John 5:4 (NASB)
4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.
5 Who is the one who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?

“He Is Sovereign”

“He Is Sovereign”

God the Father answers our prayers
Many times in ways we cannot see
For He is sovereign; we are not
And only He knows what will be

His thoughts are not our thoughts
They are infinitely above our own
He is good always; all of the time
He does not leave us to go it alone

He views us through His Son Jesus
Made spotless in His righteousness
By His Spirit, we have been sealed
And He sanctifies us unto holiness

I Chronicles 29:11 (NASB)
Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, indeed everything that is in the heavens and the earth; Yours is the dominion, O LORD, and You exalt Yourself as head over all.

Galatians 3:26 (NASB)
26 For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.

“Walk”

“Walk”

My Christian walk is a stumble
I make mistakes, and I fall
You gently pick me back up
Swiftly, You answer my call

You love me unconditionally
But, this I really must confess
Sometimes I think of You wrongly
And I make my own selfish mess

Many tears flood my eyes
As I read Your Holy Word
Truth pierces the darkness
My heart is warmly stirred

At times, I fail quite miserably
Yet I realize, You love me no less
Your Mercy and Grace cover me
I am clothed in Your righteousness

Though evil thoughts accuse me
Your words of Life fill my mind
Understanding dawns upon me
As perfect peace in You, I find

Psalms 54:4 (NASB)
Behold, God is my helper; The Lord is the sustainer of my soul.
