With all that we need to face in our world: all the seemingly upside-down moralities, the real and the imagined divisions, and the very different visions for our future, the wise know Who it is that really is in control.
The Wise Know Where their Strength Comes
David faced Goliath with stone in hand and faith within.
He faced the giant because He knew God was with him.
Samson was strong with power;
But He became foolish and his victory was soured.
Both tell a story all need to see.
Both from God got their strength.
From king to pauper both the same;
Need the favor of God to remain.
From small nation to large nation they too,
Needs God’s favor to carry through.
Wise are those that know from with their strength comes.
Wise are those who pray God’s will be done.
Just like David stood against the enemy tall;
Just like Samson pulled down on the enemy the walls;
Just like Jesus that stands for right;
You too have the strength and can stand ready to evil fight.
Just like Esther, bride of the king,
As You see the enemy destroyed your heart will sing.
Just like Mary you are ready to pour,
All that you are, in worship to your Lord.
Blessed be the Lord, because he hath heard the voice of my supplications.
The Lord is my strength and my shield;
my heart trusted in him, and I am helped:
therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth;
and with my song will I praise him.
The Lord is their strength,
and he is the saving strength of his anointed. Save thy people,
and bless thine inheritance:
feed them also, and lift them up for ever.
