The Stunning Kindness of our Great God

August 18, 2014

Why should I doubt my Master's love

When He has saved me through His blood;

The riches of salvation given,

Withholding nothing, even heaven?

 

""Come take of my forgiveness now,""

The Kind One said and humbly bowed

Beneath the cross that brought Him shame

So I could know His matchless Name.

 

And then, He came to live within,

Erasing and forgiving sin;

And making me His wealthy heir

So all He has I now can share.

 

Forgive me, Lord, for senseless thoughts

That question you, when you have brought

Me every kindness I have known;

I worship now here before Your throne!

THE SUFFICIENCY OF GOD

February 22, 2020

Does God have a task for you to do? Most assuredly He does. Then He will put the calling, empowering, and skill necessary to accomplish His work in and through you. This sufficiency is true for the smallest, daily tasks and the greatest endeavors. You need not fear. Look to Him and all the sufficiency you need will be provided. You will be able to say with Paul, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13).

In this way, God’s miraculous work gets done and all the glory goes entirely to the One who equipped you for the task.
