God's Strength

July 27, 2017

God’s strength comes not in activities we do,

Nor covenant sacrifices performed for you.

God’s strength comes not from internal might,

For the Bible says those things take flight.

 

God’s strength comes not from emotional claim,

But through the narrow and heavenly way.

God’s strength comes not in this world’s gain,

But in humble submission to His wonderful name.

 

God’s strength comes not from the music we play,

Nor from the works that we perform each day.

God’s strength comes not from buildings and things,

Nor large crowds, man-made efforts to bring.

 

God’s strength comes not through winds of change,

But through His nature which remains the same.

God’s strength comes not from prideful eyes,

But through Christ Jesus who was willing to die.

 

God’s strength does come to the obedient man,

Who rests in the divine and foundational plan.

God’s strength does come to those who wait,

Anticipating His coming, our glorious fate. 

 

God’s strength does come when we seek His face,

Desiring salvation for the lost human race.  

God’s strength does come when yielded to Him,

Fleeing the old man’s wretched iniquity and sin.

 

God’s strength does come when the Spirit indwells,

For now we are Christians, a godly legacy to tell.

God’s strength does come when motivated by love,

An agape existence given from on-high up above.
