When we take God seriously
The simple truth is
that a mere kernel of faith,
a miniature poppy seed of trust,
This measure of confidence in God
Let’s us tell any mountain:
Move!’ and it will move.
There’s nothing we can’t face
We can tackle everything
It is possible!
We can reckon on God’s power
Our Lord will keep us
Our Lord will deliver us
Our Lord will give us the victory
His promises are our stand
His assurances are our treasure
We cast all our care on Him daily
He faithfully carries our burden
We enjoy deep peace in Him
Jesus purifies our thoughts
Jesus fills our imaginations
Christ’s words impact our thoughts with deep meaning
We can see God’s will in everything We receive it:
our sighing is lifted to singing.
In a remix of H. C. G. Moule:
“It is possible:
as we take complete refuge
in Divine power
to become strong
through and through;
It is possible:
where previously in our greatest weakness,
to find that things that upset us
The stuff that blocked our resolves to be patient,
The stuff that obstructed our desire to be pure,
The stuff that hampered our longing to be humble,
Are all transformed into opportunities—
through Christ who loves us
through God’s Spirit who works in us our agreement with His will
As our Father blesses us with a sense of His presence
As He motivates us with Jesus resurrection power—
We get new life from our surrounding death
Our attraction to Christ
is an experience of His life
His life makes sin powerless over us.
These things are divine possibilities
This is His Spirits work,
We experience His healing
We feel His empowering touch
We bow lower and lower at His feet
We learn of Him
We thirst and long for more of Christ
Jesus is the only one who satisfies each day, each hour, each moment,
In Christ, through the power of the His Spirit—we walk with God.”
We have as much of God as we desire.
Christ puts the key of the treasure-chamber into our hand,
Jesus bids us take all that we want.
If we are admitted into the gold bullion vault of a bank and we’re told to help ourselves
If we come out with one cent,
whose fault is it that we are poor?
Whose fault is it that we generally have such scanty portions of the free riches of God?
God fills our cup to overflowing
Bring a bigger mug each moment
He fills every vessel.
Bring more vessels.
