Power in the Promises

So many precious promises are waiting in God's Word

To be applied to everyday and draw us heavenward

From focusing on petty things that keep us busy here

So busy blessings we might have most rarely do appear

For Satan knows the power that those promises possess

He knows that if we lean on them his cunning can't distress

Us when we are oppressed by him and evil things he does

That weaken and destroy the faith in those who put their trust

In people not in God alone who only knows the heart

Who daily offers out to us His hand to have a part

In His work of salvation that's much larger than we know

That's meant to touch the hearts of those in every place we go

To strengthen and encourage both them and ourselves as well

As sharing of God's promises will bless the source who tells

The hearer who can see in them the evidence of faith

That's strengthened in the one who shares the goodness of God's grace

And with that faith comes power to stand firmly for God's Truth

No matter what the consequence that leads to our abuse

When we live by what we profess the way Christ lived for us

To give by His Example how the saints can daily trust

That they are in God's presence where no evil can control

Their thought their words their actions as by grace God's made them whole

And every day that's focused on His Word and Him alone

Makes them and us a channel by which Truth and Life are known

For what they are is Jesus Who abides our steps each day

Who by His Holy Spirit keeps us in the narrow Way

Where nothing can offend us that our God has not foreseen

And made for a provision whereupon our faith might lean

But only as we're focused daily on the things He shares

Those things He's scattered through His Word assuring us He cares

About even the smallest things pertaining to His plan

To make again His glory be the center of each man

And woman who will love Him even more than life itself

Abandoning the things of earth as well as all things else

That keeps them from experience that only comes from God

Empowering each step we take along the path we trod

Colossians 1:9-29
