No-fault Righteousness

Recommended Posts

Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.   If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him (NIV – James 1:4-5)*

 

Come let us ask God for more wisdom;

We are assured He does not find fault.

Each time, it is like a clean slate petition,

There’s a generous response whenever we call.

 

How can we doubt God’s tender mercies?

Perseverance comes from quiet confidence

In Abba’s kind, compassionate choosing

Enabling weak knees to worship and bend…

 

…and touch the ground, where we began,

Dust of the earth, formed by God’s breath.

When Spirit came, the change was profound

Within simple shapes where Love made a home.

 

He finds no fault, oh how direct!

The Lamb of God by His own righteousness

Covers His sheep, in wisdom protects.

We cheer as we walk in no-fault Righteousness!

 

It is no default, this is His Being,

The Great I Am, far from ever changing.

As east from west on a plane shall not meet,

Favor's dimension is full liberty.
