GOD’S SOVEREIGNTY

GOD’S   SOVEREIGNTY

As thy days are so shall thy strength be.
God sets the boundary for the sea.
Whether or not we would disagree.

Waxing or waning in harmony.
The moon plies it course unfailingly.
God declaring His Sovereignty. 

Wisdom and power belong to Him.
Kings are appointed but not by whim.
Wonderful providence shown herein. 

He is the Potter we are the clay.
Shaped by His Hand for life everyday.
Though some are unwilling to obey.

Sometimes our lot is in pastures green.
Blessings abound and life is serene.
How quickly we agree to His scheme.

Every new day brings change and decay
Sometimes we linger long in sickbays.
Sensing His care and constant surveys.

Living or dying by His Decree
God declares He is the Appointee
Showing He is not an Absentee. 

How do I react to Sovereign truth.
God controlled my life before my youth.
His Word declares it and that is proof.

His future plans I await with joy.
My present times I fully employ.
My soul convinced He will not destroy. 

So I wait with peace God’s future plans.
Content that nothing can break loves bands
And wrest me out of  my Saviour’s hands

Window Cleaning

Just thinking about cleaning windows, glass and mirrors.

You clean them thoroughly and they look great, even perfect to ones eyes.

Then the sun comes out, and shines on and the through the glass; guess what? That which is so perfect, now looks so imperfect, so full of smears, missed places, and unwelcome grime.

This is much like our life, out of the light of God’s Word and the Son’s sight, viewed by our own eyes, it looks great, almost perfect……

But in the light of God’s Word and beams from God’s Son shining on it, it looks smeared, tainted, very dirty and in need of a complete Washing in the Blood of Christ.

In what light do you look at you life?

And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God. John 3:19-21
