Love of His Might

Ragamuffin_John

293 views

This my anguish,
these are my fears,
but Lord, I remember
your right hand across years,
in many of which
people said I was gone,
but man's "Impossible"
is a done deal with God.*

Lord, what is it
that You want from me?
A voice that reflects
a soul on its knees,
asking for your goodness,
recalling your ways,
saying You have not forgotten,
while riding provision's waves.

God struck the rock,**
Jesus, and such
was the outpouring
at Pentecost,
the Bread of Life,
Food for all time,
fed us across the Jordan,
provokes love of His might.

* Luke 18:27
** Immediately thinking of Psalms 78:17-20 -- but also pondering Isaiah 53, about the sacrifice of the Son of God on our behalf

I wrote the above after reading Psalms 77 and Psalms 78.  I picked up on two things that we can learn from the Psalmist:  honesty and reverence.  While writing, I was also reminded of these exhortations from the Apostle Paul:

 

Romans 15:4 (KJV):  For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.

1 Corinthians 10:11 (KJV):  Now all these things happened unto them for examples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.
