The Lord speaks to Moses face to face

 

The cries of the people of God reached heavens
God, thus, stooped down to come to their rescue
Finally, they were set free to serve the Lord their God
Distinctly, the people of Israel had stood out, since then

 

Out of the burning bush, God called Moses
He then was hesitant to heed the call at first
He, however, saw himself speaking with the Lord Yahweh
Moses, since then, had sought to serve God in His own terms

 

Moses a man of God prayed in faith and humility
He learned more of God as he interceded in earnest
God was always gracious to him, and let him obtain His favor
God did speak to Moses in person, when he asked in prayer

 

Moses truly was a legendary leader God had molded
The works he had done speak of his faith in volumes
No one like Moses led God’s people by revelations
For the Lord spoke to no one like Moses in high honor

 

Inspiration from:-
Exodus 1-8, 33, Number 12:8, Deut. 34:10-12, Heb.11:6

David cried to God, “You are my Father”

 

God sought a man after His own heart
David was that man God was looking for
And He had chosen him as a king for Himself

 

The Lord was with David through His Spirit
He was always with him till the end
And that was what David pleaded in prayer

 

David was truly led by the Spirit of God
He was bold and courageous for the LORD
Yet, he was wise and prudent in all his ways

 

David was a special son and servant of the LORD
He regarded himself as a mere slave before God
Yet, he sought to relate to God as Abba his Father!

 

Inspiration from:
1 Samuel 13:14, 16:13, Psalm 51: 11,
1 Samuel 17:36, 18:5, 14, 2 Samuel 7: 5-7, 18-21, Psalm 89:26-29

Through Your Mercy

 

 

I was wandering in the dark

‘cause I was dead and lost in sins

I was eradicating my ‘self’ in loss

‘cause I couldn’t cease desiring Nirvana

 

I am now washed and cleansed

As the Spirit of God begets me from above

I am now found and flourished

As my ‘self’ is home in Imago Dei once again

 

God has created in me a new heart

As Jesus is welcome to my heart anew

The Holy Ghost gives life to my poor body

So that I may walk on earth with heaven in sight

 

Never shall I fear evils or foes in this life and beyond

I know Your mercy is new, fresh, and sufficient all the way

Never shall I boast about my walk or my works again

It was, is, and will be, solely through Your mercy I am saved

 

Inspiration from Titus 3:5; Eph.2:1-2; Romans 8:10-11; Lamentations 3:22

Wisdom-Seekers

 

Wisdom that enriches life is everywhere
Let one who lives seek it anywhere

Who is entitled to wisdom so special?
To him who asks God for it in prayer

Christ alone is God’s wisdom in person
Let’s take heed to Jesus’ calling in action

Pastor-teachers are bearers of the Light
Let us seek wisdom from them in the Word

 

Inspiration from Proverbs 1-2, James 1:5-6, 1 Corinthians 1:24, Malachi 2:7

Our faith Comes of Age

 

God has made it possible for us to believe

Our faith then must be nurtured to grow;

As the Scriptures helps us to come to Jesus

So, let us lose no time to believe in Jesus

 

 

God has promised us all that we need

Food and clothes are only what He adds;

As we live under His reign and rule of life

So, worries for morrow are gone and out of life

 

God has spoken to us in His living Word

Faith comes as, what He says, we truly heed;

As we believe all that the Scriptures teaches,

So, our faith in God will surely come of age

 

Inspiration from Matthew 6:33; Romans 10:17; Psalm 69;11; John 5:39

The Work of Faith

 

Precious is the faith inherited
From the saints
For that faith, we must defend together,
To the end

 

Objective is the faith instructed
In the Word
To that faith, we must align ourselves,
in real life

 

Decisive is how God acts in Christ
For our good
Divine gift of life, we all must accept
In good faith

 

As a good tree bears good and pleasant fruit
In its time;
So does the faith handed down to us all
In due time

 

Thessalonians bear good fruit of faith
Obviously
Paul the Apostle calls it ‘work of faith’
So plainly

 

Inspiration from 1 Thessalonians 1; Jude 3;
Matthew 7:17-18; James 2:14-26
