Power in God’s Word
Genesis 41:52 For God had caused me to be fruitful in the land of my affliction.By David Smith February 5, 2009
For God had caused me to be fruitful in the land of my affliction.
Think of our trials at hand, when life starts a switch’en.
Bloom where we are planted, I heard the preacher say
Those bright sparks of enthusiasm may make us prosperous some day.
If we could read the Bible as the owner’s manual of life;
Put the words in action, potential with power and might.
If we could only believe and act on faith alone;
Flea from personal opinion and get off our righteous throne.
And deny thyself and obey God’s written will
Sacrifice our glory for His greatest thrill.
If we could chew the cud and digest God’s Holy Word.
Walk with cloven foot where his path is reassured.
If we can only take God’s Word as our command.
The building of a nation on the Rock to more than stand.
For God caused me to be fruitful in the land of my affliction;
O to wear the Scriptures. His armour let it glisten.
