A Defiant Faith

She has a defiant faith
One that rests
Not in her circumstances
But in God alone

When her prayers seem to be unanswered
And God is silent
She strengthens her heart mind soul and spirit
In God’s perfect and inerrant Word

When others give way to doubt or fear
She instead sets her mind on Christ
And remembers His benefits
Her soul bursts forth in worship and praise

She knows of her heavenly Father’s great love
Before the foundation of the world was laid
He called her to salvation through His Beloved Son’s sacrifice
He has sealed her with the Holy Spirit

If He has met her greatest needs
Surely, He will care for her needs today
She chooses to trust God as He has revealed Himself to be
Her confidence rests in His unchanging, merciful lovingkindness

She has a defiant faith, a confident faith
One that does not waver
Like a light that does not dim
She rests secure in the Solid Rock of Jesus Christ

The Power of Praise

It’s through praise and worship
I’m ushered into Your presence Lord Jesus
 
When I glorify Your holy Name
Life comes into perspective
 
As Your power and strength are manifest
My problems and concerns diminish
 
The One who is mighty to save
Is able to deliver me from all my afflictions
 
The cares of this world fade away
As I behold Your glory
 
It’s through the power of praise and worship my soul is strengthened
My heart and mind are stayed on Thee
