Inspirations for Christians
The Power of The Kingdom
The Power of His Kingdom is not for the faint
It comes to those with some restraint
Sin cannot mix with His Will on the Earth
It often hinders – this I have learned.
If we would be yielded, we would have more power
Instead of wrestling by the day or the hour.
When there is a tempest, we would not be forlorn
If we are reigning with Jesus, for this we were born.
But we struggle and strive – this is no lie
Against His Spirit, for our flesh to survive
The things we don’t want to do we do
For sure, sometimes, our hearts are true.
Why must there be this tug of war
between our flesh and our spirit? And what is more....
we hesitate to pray, sometimes even for days.
If we want something enough, it is sometimes tough.
That’s when we are better to give up and worship Him.
He does not trust His Power to all –
So on His Name we must daily call.
Those who are led by the Spirit of God
Are truly His sons on this earthly sod.

In the original Greek translation, Sons of God
actually means “Mature Sons of God” (Rom 8:14)
He Does Not Lie – Let’s Pray
God is not a man that He should lie
Neither the son of man that He should repent
but we make mistakes and often relent
when He says “be not wise in your own eyes.”
Sometimes we think He has let us down –
When difficulties arise, they come as a surprise.
Sometimes we fret and sometimes we frown –
We so often question and surmise.
We have heard He is no man’s debtor –
If we really believe this, He can snap our fetters.
Yes God is not a man that He should lie
Neither the son of man that He should repent.
So be patient and wait for Him, be of good cheer –
Each time we do this, His Presence is near.
Settle not for the things of this world –
Be in His Glory held.
Wait things out with Him,
He will fill you to the brim.
He will come through for you.
Jesus walked this Earth and He wore our shoes –
Tired and weary, He prayed to His Father
We are not greater than out master.
Pray in the morning and at night
And He will give you eagle’s sight –
One lens for the Heavens as well as the Earth
This is found on our knees and not in church.

We cannot skip the basics, if we want to enter into
the Power of the Kingdom. Many of us get upset about things
and we need to live in True Freedom.
Redeem the Time
Life is full of choices and different voices
Choose the best and you will fret less.
Be careful how you lend your ears
This will make for more days with cheer.
Keep your Lord close and never roam
This will make for Peace in your home.
Don’t listen to lies, keep your eyes on Paradise
Unseen enemies speak words that are not true.
Keep your ears for Jesus and His Love for you.
Be mindful of things you cherish
Some things are destined to perish.
So make sure you balance them with heavenly things
And oh such pleasure and Joy they will bring.
Be not subdued by things untrue
Keep your heart full of Jesus and His Love for you.
And you will sing everyday along life’s way.
Scripture says to Redeem the Time.

The Christian Kingdom Of Love
Blessed is the soul that's born again,
Cleansed by the Blood of Christ,
That mighty flood that teaches men
How much God sacrificed.
Lord Jesus chose the Cross to bear,
His destiny to face...
In answer to each sinner's prayer,
To save the Human Race...
That's why today the Gospel's taught
In Israel and beyond
And why today that we are bought
With Blood when we respond...
And so God's Kingdom must increase
With every passing week,
A million more God can release,
If we, lost souls, would seek.
It's by God's Word that faith can grow
Just like a mustard seed,
Until one day the world will know
How much God's love we need...
In word and deed, let's be a voice
In every wilderness,
So that lost souls can make the choice
That brings God's happiness!
