The fears you have are because you’re human.
The courage I give is because I’m God.
You and me, we are a team.
You offer surrender, I bring the dreams.
I move the mountains. I part the streams.
You sit back— watch, you’ll see!
With your meager talents, I’ll multiply.
I’ll add depth and wisdom that outstretch the sky.
But beware, there are many who won’t understand.
They will joke, laugh, and throw you on a witness stand.
Look at Noah, David, Joseph and my son, Jesus.
Scoffers laughed at the boat, while in the caves, at the dreams, and at the cross.
The rains came…
The crown came…
The leadership came…
The tomb was rolled away…
Scoffers ran or stood silenced.
This faith walk will test every fiber of your being.
You will either stand for Me or fall for everything.
My plans are not easy or conventional.
But they’re absolutely providential.
I created water from a rock.
Provided fish to fishermen who just were weary for the dock.
I raised the dead.
I raised a lame man from his bed.
But each person has to come to Me empty— putting their plans aside.
Knowing that their wills with Mine they’ll have to align.
Sometimes things ended in heartbreak and death.
But each of My disciples knows that I take and give each breath.
When you sign up to do things My way… Things won’t always make sense.
But one thing you can always be sure of is My presence.
I go before, stand beside and guard behind.
It often feels like you are going blind.
But suddenly after time you’ll look behind…
And you’ll see a beautiful life that I have intricately designed.
I don’t ask you to do anything I haven’t already done.
I set the example and in the end I have already won.
So don’t grow weary scoffers external and internal.
The path you’re on begins here but is eternal.
I created you, I know you, and I know how to make beautiful things.
