Knowing You Jesus!

1Ti 6:6 But godliness with contentment is great gain.


I thought of myself the chief of sinners
But it was pride that made me think
Far greater evil by men are done
Men far evil than I have ever been!

I thought I searched, I thought I thirst
But better men than I have lived
Better men who sought and did not find
Better men than I have ever been!

Mediocre at most
A failure even in failing
I just cannot explain
Nothing like I have ever heard or seen!

I thought Agape meant unconditional
Now I know it means more than that
Unfathomable, unimaginable, incomprehensible ...
Inexpressible .... you know what I mean!

To be called His child,
To be able to enter into His presence
To know that He Loves me,
Forgiven, washed by His blood of every sin clean!

O evil heart of mine
Is there anything more that you now seek?
Knowing that we can know Him
Cast our cares on Him, on Him lean!

Content in knowing that He reigns
Content in knowing that He loves
Content in knowing that He decides
Content in Him, even of things unseen.

2Pe 1:3-14 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

He does as He pleases in Love!

Act 9:10-18 And there was a certain disciple at Damascus, named Ananias; and to him said the Lord in a vision, Ananias. And he said, Behold, I am here, Lord. And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the street which is called Straight, and enquire in the house of Judas for one called Saul, of Tarsus: for, behold, he prayeth, And hath seen in a vision a man named Ananias coming in, and putting his hand on him, that he might receive his sight. Then Ananias answered, Lord, I have heard by many of this man, how much evil he hath done to thy saints at Jerusalem: And here he hath authority from the chief priests to bind all that call on thy name. But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel: For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my name's sake. And Ananias went his way, and entered into the house; and putting his hands on him said, Brother Saul, the Lord, even Jesus, that appeared unto thee in the way as thou camest, hath sent me, that thou mightest receive thy sight, and be filled with the Holy Ghost. And immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been scales: and he received sight forthwith, and arose, and was baptized.


No one lights a lamp and puts it under a bushel.
For He who who lit the lamp will put it on a lamp stand
It is He who opens the eyes of the thirsty to see
Opens it for babes and hides it from the wise
He who gives you favour and He who allows the chains
He who makes you a Pharaoh, He who let you be a slave
For if they knew Him not whom they crucified
Do not be alarmed if they do not see Him in you.

Even if it be to live and die without being noticed!
O Ananias! if you had but one line in the entire play!
Be assured that what He does in you
Is far greater than what He does through you;
For that which were spoken off by the prophets
Even through Judas could come to pass!
But Christ in you the hope of glory
Is a mystery that far surpass!!

For God is sovereign and worthy to be sovereign
To choose as He pleases,
To open the eyes of those He chooses
For they will know we are of Him
That we are His workmanship
The fruit of His hands, His children
Like Jesus, by the resurrection from the dead.

Rom 1:4 And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:

Gen 45:8 So now it was not you that sent me hither, but God: and he hath made me a father to Pharaoh, and lord of all his house, and a ruler throughout all the land of Egypt.

No coincidence ... I am done with luck!


When things do not go as planned,
When people take time to understand,
When even repeated caution
seems to go unheeded,
We are often reminded to be patient,
Just as the Lord has been with us;
Patient of others blindness,
For once we too were blind,
Before Jesus opened our eyes;
Yes to show mercy,
Just as we were shown mercy.
Yes and so it is true!
But I have seen a deeper truth,
One that fills me with joy,
When things do not go as planned,
To know that He is in control
That even this, is in His plan.

Rom 8:28-29 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

Amazed not surprised

He continues ...

He continues to amaze us
With His Love and His Might
His Grace and His Power
He makes the impossible possible;
But it does not surprise me
As much as I used to be once
Because amazing He is
And all that He does
And nothing less can I expect
Than to be amazed in His presence!

Rev 1:17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead.

The truth you do not want to believe!?

Hard to Believe!?
I have heard of kings
and gods made by men
Heard of valorous heroes
and great men of ancient lore
Stories so beautifully crafted
A fantasy make believe
Larger than life
He stands taller than all
He is the leader, the one who fights
He is seen by all, he is adored by all.

But the God who made this universe
So vast and incredible
Is far greater than our poetic eloquence
Far greater than our imagination
That when we hear of who He is
And what He has done
We find it hard to believe
We find Him hard to receive
Surely this cannot be true ...
We would rather believe a lie.

That God sent His only begotten Son
That whosoever believed in HIM
Shall not die, but have eternal life.
That God is real and not just a concept
and that we can know Him for who He is
through faith in His Son.

John 12:38 That the saying of Esaias the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed?

The Servant King
