If Only You Would Believe
.In the beginning he came
a Man like any other
Out of the mists of ages dark
Giving glory to God
above the hills in Galilee
While shepherds watched.
In His coming
the darkness was dispelled
for all time.
Light and faith
was nurtured for each soul,
Lifting high the tenets
unto lucrative yield,
And showering man-kind
with gifts of promises
Which could now be fulfilled,
If only you would believe.
Lord is saying. Will you share with me my glory, then share
with me the times when you cannot see the answer, when you
cannot know only by the eyes of faith. Then you too will share
in my glory and be seated in that place that the saints of
old who believed without seeing, now sit.
3:17 The LORD your God in the midst of you[is] mighty; he
will save, he will rejoice over you with joy; he will rest
in his love, he will joy
over you with singing.
does God love impossible situations so much? Many years ago
when things were very difficult, I suddenly started seeing
the word JOY in the squirls of the carpet or the patterns
in a wallpaper, anywhere where there was a certain texture
to the surface. This was not a bit like seeing something in
your spirit or in your mind's eye, but actually as though
this word, for example, would be written by the way the thread
of the carpet lay. Yet no one else could see it but me. This
phenomena was a great comfort at the time, because this usually
happened when I needed cheering up the most. Then God revealed
that this was actually something He wanted me to do. In the
above scripture Joy was used as a verb, a doing word. He showed
me He wanted me to thank in all things no matter what was
happening and to rejoice greatly in everything.
He showed me why. He wanted me to share in the joy that He
felt when faced with impossible situations. To Him they are
great opportunities and He wants us to feel that same exhilartion
and not to question IF we will come out of this. No... our
only questions should be HOW will my heavenly Father get me
out of this one? And... how will He work it for my good? For
all things are working out to our good and His glory......
thats the promise to those who love Him.
