Trials teach us what we are

Quick reminder : Trust God’s timing for your life seasons

  • For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay. (Habakkuk 2:3)
  • But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. (Isaiah 40:31)
  • For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven (Ecclesiastes 3:1)
  • Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord! (Psalm 27:14)
  • For there is a time and a way for everything, although man’s trouble lies heavy on him. (Ecclesiastes 8:6)
  • And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. (Galatians 6:9)

  • But about midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns of praise to God, and the prisoners were listening to them (Acts 16:25)

Quick Reminder: God searches the hearts of all

The God of Israel

He is known in the Hebrew tongue as Jehovah,
And created the land, the stars and each supernova.
He is the Lord of the seas, the earth and the sky,
And life to all beings everywhere he does supply.

All knowing, all powerful, all powerful is he,
None can overcome the Lord by any degree.
He controls the storehouses of rain, cold and storm,
And great things and miracles he does perform.

In the past of all the many nations on the earth,
God chose Israel much before Abraham’s birth.
These were called to be his people forever,
So he gave them Law to follow wherever.

They lived under God’s protection,
And for them the Lord still has much affection.
The God of the Holy angels on high,
Manna in the wilderness for them he did supply.

In love for his people, the Lord is zealous,
Against worship of false gods, he is jealous.
For God reproves the sinner and does rebuke,
Moses worships him and so does Saint Luke.

He is merciful equally as he is just,
So he forgives those in him who put their trust.
He knows the heart and he knows the mind,
And keeps his Angels to the righteous assigned.

His Spirit is holy and so is his only begotten Son,
Manifest in the flesh Jesus has great victories won.
And he is seated at his Father and Lord’s right hand,
Giving salvation to all believers in the land.

For the God of Israel is not restricted to the Jews,
He pours out his grace on each, who the Gospel choose.
No wonder Jehovah planned to be the Redeemer of all nations,
For the Gentiles too are his beloved creations.

Be holy and kind

Be holy and kind,
And in goodness never behind.
Use words wise and just,
Show in the Lord your trust.

For mercy to others Christ has commanded,
And all vain legalism he has reprimanded.
So don’t wait for a specific time or way,
For Jesus even healed on the Sabbath day.

Be kind and holy to yourself and to others,
Act right with anyone, even your sisters and brothers.
Don’t take right conduct ever for granted,
For to do goods works you have been planted.

Heal the people of the world

Hear my prayer O God just and true,
By your Spirit the world renew,
For many need your love and care,
A groaning creation in despair.

Send your faithful to help and pray,
And get the sheep that are still astray.
Cause your healing to flow through them,
To cure the leaves, root and stem.

Send your angels to guard and guide,
Those who choose in the Gospel to abide.
May your holy angels pull them away from danger,
From the evil and insidious stranger.

Hear O Lord Jesus my petition and plea,
That today more souls the darkness flee.
Let them hear your Word in favor,
So that they escape the hellish enslaver.

Love the Lord more each day

Love the Lord more each day,
Pay attention to what he does say.
Love the Lord more each day,
Walk with him on the way.

Love the Lord more each day,
And from sin always turn away.
Love the Lord more each day,
Never from the right path go astray.

Love the Lord more each day,
Thank him whether at work or play.
Love the Lord more each day,
Thank him for the morning’s ray.

Love the Lord more each day,
And your worries at his feet you lay.
Love the Lord more each day,
And this love in your actions display.

Heal my dear ones O Lord

Heal those whom I hold dear,
Lord let your healing to them come near.
Hear my prayer and hear my plea,
And let all of their illness flee.

O Christ Jesus I desire that they are well,
And also that they prevail against hell.
May the Enemy’s plan against them fail,
Help them when their faith goes frail.

I ask that my loved ones are set free,
From the darkness for eternity.
Let Gospel be in their heart,
So that from God they don’t depart.

Work hard for the Lord

Work hard for the Lord and be sincere,
Hold God’s Word in your heart without fear.
May your faith in Christ never cease,
For by that the Lord you will please.

Don’t worry about the world’s derision,
But trust wholly in God’s provision.
The world and its lust will be judged,
For its thoughts and deeds are smudged.

Be kind in words, thoughts and actions,
For heaven takes notes of your transactions.
Pray and intercede for those afflicted,
For those in darkness and the wrongly convicted.

And faithfully you the Gospel preach,
To each you find in your reach.
That they may believe and be saved,
So no longer they in sin remain enslaved.

Work because you love the Lord and the needy,
Don’t be slow when you need to be speedy.
For the harvest is plenty but the labourers are few,
So pray for more labourers both Gentile and Jew.
