Walking Wisely ~

 

Oh, Father I thank you,
today for Your grace
and the wisdom I need
for the world I’ll face.

For I know of the evil,
I will witness today
and walking wisely
must be my mainstay.

Oh, Father I thank you,
for Your constant guidance
as I strive for perfection
in a world filled with defiance.

For, I know the perversion,
that is going out there
for to its ungodliness
Your Word keeps me aware.

Oh, Father I thank you,
for the wisdom You give
for without it I don’t know . . .
how in this world I’d live!

~~~~~~

Ephesians 5:15-17

“See then that ye walk circumspectly,
not as fools, but as wise,

Redeeming the time,
because the days are evil.

Wherefore be ye not unwise,
but understanding what
the will of the Lord is.”

God Helps Me To Know ~

God helps me to know,
His mercy He’ll show
when I go to His throne
His grace will be shown.

He helps me to grow,
when into His Word I go
He enlightens my vision
by giving me His wisdom.

God helps me to be calm,
He is my soothing balm
when I need comforting
He eases my suffering.

He makes me strong,
when things go wrong
He gives me boldness
by His closeness.

God helps me to know,
the way I should go
when to Him I pray
He shows me the way!

Hebrews 4:16

Let us therefore come boldly
unto the throne of grace, that
we may obtain mercy, and find
grace to help in time of need.

Crossroads~

Often at a crossroad,
we decide the way
we think we should go
before we even pray.

We trust our intuition,
so we make the choice
without listening to . . .
the Holy Spirit’s voice.

We start off down the path,
we thought was best for us
forgetting it’s God’s will
and not ours we should trust.

We grow more unsure,
with each step we take
until we start wishing
the choice we didn’t make.

So next time at a crossroad,
before you make a decision
pray first asking God to give  . . .
you guidance and wisdom!

~~~~~~~

James 1:5

“If any of you lack wisdom,
let him ask of God,
that giveth to all
men liberally, and
upbraideth not;
and it shall be given him.”

God’s Advantage Point ~

Today I prayed,
asking God what to do
and He responded . . .
My will you need to pursue.

I asked Him how,
His will I may know
and He answered
My Word the way will show.

So I bowed my head,
and opened up my mind
to the truth I knew
I was about to find.

And there it was in print,
what He wanted of me
as my eyes opened up
His answer I could see.

Today I prayed,
and God did not disappoint
for He showed me what to do
from His advantage point!

“Wherefore be ye not unwise,

The Way of the Upright ~

Teach me Lord,
to do Thy will
help me to be
patient and still.

Show me the way,
of the upright
give me wisdom
a holy insight.

Educate me Lord,
to know Your desire
help me to do
all You require.

Lead me along,
the path of goodness
help me to live
a life of pureness.

Teach me Lord,
the ways of Your will
with Your power
may my life You fill!

~~~~~

Psalm 143:10

“Teach me to do thy will;
for thou art my God:
thy spirit is good;
lead me into the land
of uprightness.”

Dependent of God ~

If on God we’re dependent,
we’ll want to know His will
before we go do this or that
we’ll gladly remain still.

We will pray for direction,
for guidance in all things
waiting until we receive
His reverent blessings.

If on God we’re to rely,
we’ll seek His holy counsel
whatever is not of His will
we will happily cancel.

We’ll need to understand,
His plans are not our own
once we see everything
is controlled from His throne.

If on God we’re dependent,
we’ll need to be submissive
to His will for our lives . . .
we must not be dismissive!

~~~~~~~~~~

James 4:15

“For that ye ought to say,
If the Lord will,
we shall live,
and do this, or that.”

Daily Seeking God’s Face ~

Seeking God’s face,
leads to eternal life
forgiveness of sin
peace from all strife.

It leads to blessings,
His daily provisions
gives understanding
much needed protection.

Seeking God’s face,
leads to faith and hope
offers instructions
gives grace to cope.

It leads to wisdom,
ongoing strength and renewal
it causes rejoicing
overcomes upheaval.

Seeking God’s face,
each day is a must
for it provides
continual trust!

1 Chronicles 16:11

“Seek the Lord and his strength,
seek his face continually.”

On The Path To Heaven ~

Lord may Your steps,
establish my pathway
so I may follow You
each and every day.

Take me to places,
where You want me go
so the Life and Truth
I may live and know.

Lord, take these feet of clay,
shake from them the dust
so I may leave footsteps
of faith, hope and trust.

Guide me as I travel,
on this sparsely walked road
so I may not be lured away
when heavy is my load.

Lord, may Your steps,
lead and guide me
so on the path to heaven . . .
I can walk along with Thee!

~~~~~~

Psalm 85:13

“Righteousness shall
go before him;
and shall set us
in the way of his steps.”

God’s Greater Purpose ~

God’s purpose is greater,
than this one of mine
for His intentions are . . .
of an eternal design.

God’s plans are smarter,
than the ones I make
for His concepts are . . .
for my soul’s own fate.

God’s ways are better,
than the ones I attempt
for His commands are . . .
righteously correct.

God’s directions are wiser,
than the ones I seek
for His instructions are . . .
to make me wise and meek.

God’s greater purpose,
I’ve come to believe . . .
for without His Son
grace I’d never receive!

~~~~~~~~

2 Timothy 1:9

“Who hath saved us,
and called us with an holy calling,
not according to our works,
but according to his own purpose
and grace, which was given us
in Christ Jesus before the world began,”

Boundaries ~

God gave us boundaries,
to hem us to Him
so into temptation
we would not fall in.

He gave us the do’s
and the not to do’s too
so we’d not be fooled
by satan’s devious ruse.

God gave us boundaries,
of what we should know
He gave us limits
on the way we’re to go.

He gave us the shall’s,
and the shall not’s
to help us to control
our minds and thoughts.

God gave us boundaries,
right from the start
so that satan and sin
wouldn’t enter our heart!

~~~~~~~~~~

Genesis 2:16-17

“And the Lord God commanded the man,
saying, Of every tree of the garden
thou mayest freely eat:

But of the tree of the knowledge
of good and evil, thou shalt not
eat of it: for in the day that thou
eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.”

Seek God While It’s Early ~

In the morning hours,
when all is quiet and still
seek God and you’ll find
what is for you His will.

Ask Him for the wisdom,
as you commence your day
and He will show you
the righteousness of His way.

In the early light,
when all is calm and silent
seek God with a heart
on Him trusting and reliant.

Ask Him to show you,
the plans He has for you
inquire of Him guidance
in all His has for you to do.

In the morning hours,
seek God while it’s still dawn
and throughout the day  . . .
you’ll find yourself Spirit drawn!

~~~~~~

Psalm 143:8

“Cause me to hear thy
lovingkindness in the morning;
for in thee do I trust:
cause me to know the way
wherein I should walk;
for I lift up my soul unto thee.”

God’s Preparing The Way ~

God’s working everyday,
in the believer’s life
every experience
be it victory or strife.

He has a purpose,
behind all He exercises
He warns and corrects us
so our sin will recognize.

God tests where we’ll put,
our faith and trust
so He sends us trials
to see how we’ll adjust.

He has a reason,
for the storms that blow
and He wants to see
where we’ll choose to go.

God is preparing us,
working in us each day
for our future glory . . .
He is purifying the way!

~~~~~~~

Ephesians 1:11

“In whom also we have obtained
an inheritance, being

of his own will:

God Has His Best For You ~

God knows your needs,
He sees your desires
He knows when fear
inflames doubt’s fires.

God understands,
the conditions you’re under
He hears your thirst
He knows of your hunger.

God hears your pleas,
He listens to your cries
He knows you have
some unanswered why’s.

God understands,
the situation you’re in
He knows you need
to hear back from Him.

God has your best,
interests at heart
so wait and be still
until them He imparts!

A Heart Open ~

A heart open,
to God’s searchings
is a heart ready
for His teachings.

It’s a heart willing,
for God to make known
His plans and purposes
the way to be shown.

A heart open,
is one that will pray
it doesn’t matter
if it’s night or day.

It’s a heart knowing,
God’s will is the best
if it wants to have
true peace and rest.

A heart open,
to God’s eternal good
is a heart working for Jesus
just as it should!

~~~~~~~~

Jeremiah 17:10

“I the Lord search the heart,
I try the reins, even to give
every man according to his ways,
and according to the fruit
of his doings.”

What Is Your Will Lord ~

What is Your will Lord,
what would You have me do
how will I know the answer
is coming from You?

What will I need Lord,
what of me do You require
how will I know just what
is Your righteous desire?

What is Your will Lord,
what do You want of me
how will I know the path
when the way I can’t see?

What must I yet have,
what is it that I’m lacking
how will I know for sure
I have Your divine backing?

What is Your will Lord,
tis my hearts plea . . .
for I know you have
great plans for me!

~~~~~~

Proverbs 25:2

“It is the glory of God
to conceal a thing:
but the honour of kings
is to search out a matter.”

that shall stand.”

In A Jam ~

In a tight jam,
with no way out
once full of faith
now full of doubt?

Well, don’t you lose hope,
God’s the master of jams
for, He’s gotten out before
many of His trapped lambs.

Up against a wall,
don’t have a clear view
getting to the other side
looks impossible to do?

Well don’t you give up,
up and over you will go
for God will make a way
and a path He will show.

In a tight jam,
a wall up against . . .
well don’t you forget God
will come to your defense!

which maketh a way in the sea,

When Torn ~

When torn between,
which road to take
pray before any . . .
conclusion you make.

Don’t be in a hurry,
to make your decision
wait until God gives
a crystal clear vision.

When at a crossroad,
before you move on
pray and ask God
to be Spirit drawn.

Don’t rush ahead,
until He gives the go
for, if you’re patient
the way He will show.

When torn between,
which road to take . . .
always choose the highway
if on God you can’t wait!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 16:11

“Thou wilt shew me the path of life:
in thy presence is fulness of joy;
at thy right hand there are pleasures
for evermore.”

Proverbs 16:17

“The highway of the upright
is to depart from evil:
he that keepeth his way
preserveth his soul.”

When At A Crossroad ~

Some paths we are on,
are rugged and rough
some are easier . . .
and on us not so tough.

But, regardless of the path,
that God has us on
we must still be willing
to be Spirit drawn.

Some paths we are on,
are demanding and long
some are breeze . . .
filled with laughter and song.

But, when at a crossroad,
the path we choose to take
could be our biggest blessing
or our greatest mistake.

For, when we realize,
God’s paths are the best
that is when we will find . . .
our true peace and rest!

~~~~~~~

Jeremiah 6:16

“Thus saith the Lord,
Stand ye in the ways,
and see, and ask for
the old paths, where
is the good way, and
walk therein, and ye
shall find rest for
your souls.
But they said,
We will not walk therein.”

Wit’s End ~

When faced with a dilemma,
and you don’t know what to do
when pastors and counselors
no longer are able to help you.

When you have exhausted,
all of your family and friends
when you’ve tried everything
but, to your problem there’s no end.

When there’s no one else,
to whom your gut you can spill
and you still need to know
for yourself, what is God’s will.

Before you even reach,
the end of your wit
before you start to think
of calling it quits.

That’s when you need to go,
to God who’s orchestrated
the solution to your problem . . .
before it even formulated!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 33:11

“The counsel of the Lord
standeth for ever, the thoughts
of his heart to all generations.

Constant Guidance ~

The Lord will guide me,
this I haven’t any doubt
but it’s up to me . . .
not to shut His voice out.

I will need to be open,
to His divine leading
and to His written Word
I’ll need to do some heeding.

The Lord will lead me,
all I have to do is ask
but, it’s up to me . . .
to be ready for the task.

I will need to be at peace,
wherever He may take me
for, only He truly knows
what my future is to be.

The Lord will guide,
lead me continually . . .
but, I must trust Him
with my life constantly!

~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 58:11

“And the Lord shall guide thee continually,
and satisfy thy soul in drought,
and make fat thy bones:
and thou shalt be like a watered garden,
and like a spring of water,
whose waters fail not.”

Before I Met God ~

Before I met God,
I was a sinful waif
but, now He’s my Father
and keeps me safe.

He beckons to me,
to stay to Him near
and just like a Father
He calms my fear.

My Father loves me,
like no other can
for He has for me
an eternal plan.

He watches over me,
cares where I go
when I need guidance
my Father will show.

Before I meet God,
by sin I was defiled
but now He calls me . . .
His dear beloved child!

The Path of Truth ~

Lord, today I need
to know what is Your will
and until You show me . . .
I’ll just wait and be still.

I need Your guidance,
for the road ahead
I need the assurance
I will be Spirit lead.

Lord, today I need,
to heed what You say
so on the path of truth
I will be able to stay.

I need to learn to wait,
for the right directions
I need You to teach me
how to pay attention.

Lord, today I need to know,
what You’d have me to do
for I don’t want to walk . . .
down this road without You!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 25:5

“Lead me in thy truth,
and teach me: for thou art
the God of my salvation;

I am Not Afraid ~

I am not afraid,
of the evil things I see
even my own death
will not put a scare in me.

For, You my Lord,
are always near by
and will always be
until the day I die.

I am not dismayed,
by the valley ahead
for I believe through it
I will be Spirit lead.

For, when the time comes,
for me to go on home
it’ll be the happiest day
I have ever known.

I am not afraid,
I have nothing to fear
for Jesus my heart
will comfort and cheer!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 23:4

Yea, though I walk through
the valley of the shadow
of death, I will fear no evil:
for thou art with me;
thy rod and thy staff
they comfort me.”

No one comes to the Father except through me." Also Acts 4:12 "And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” Only Jesus can save! Yet not I, but through Christ in me
