" Praise the LORD; for HIS mercy endureth forever." 2 CHRONICLES 20:21
While meditating on the 20th chapter of second Chronicles, I was deeply touched at God's provision for His people. Even when the people were in the midst of fear from their enemies, God was merciful. At first glance, victory over the enemy was quite impossible... the numbers were against them. How often I find myself in the same situation... fearful in the hand of the enemy. But God reminds us to be still. He will fight for us... and win the battle!
In my thankfulness to God, I decided to jot down a poem of sorts. He is the God of heaven, is He not? He can do ALL things!
YOU ARE THE GOD OF HEAVEN, NOT?
When everything around us seems to sway
And fears arise within our hearts.
We see our strength can sometimes falter,
From many swift and flying darts.
And thus we find ourselves no longer strong
With things that come and cloud our way.
Amidst it all we lift our eyes on thee O Lord,
And bow accepting what ever may.
You are the God of heaven, not?
And in Thine hand is there not might?
We cry to Thee and Thou wilt hear
For we by faith shall live, and not by sight.
In our affliction Thou art always near,
You ask of us to just be still.
In truth , salvation comes from Thee,
And so we kneel and bow before Thy will.
You have a plan to rescue us
Thy Word is true, we can be strong.
"The battle is not yours, but mine."
O Lord forgive, for we've been wrong!
We praise your name, O Lord
Our way's established from all ill
To Thee be glory, praise and honor
As we abide before Thee still.
In Thee is victory indeed,
Our battle has been won.
We put our trust and hope in Thee
To find all fear is slowly gone.
May you know the God of heaven and rejoice that we have victory through Him.
