The righteous will live by faith

The righteous will live by faith

Father, I don't always
live by faith.
Many times I live
very much by sight.

Consumed by what I see
or scared by it
or tempted by what I see
or lulled to sleep by it.

Oh Father...

Forgive me.
Please forgive me.

I turn my eyes toward you
I seek Your guidance
Your council
Your deliverance
from all that surrounds me.

I guess I need to be picked up
out of the mud and mire
and be put back
on the solid rock.

He is
my only hope for righteousness

The righteous will live by faith...

Consume all that pursues me
all that competes for my affections
all that taunts me
as if anything is more powerful
than Your love born
will for me.

Father help me
to live by faith.

Daughter as you battle the passions
(that take your focus off me)
don't forget to surrender your weapons.
No weapon formed against you will stand
and no weapon but the sword of the Spirit
(which is the Word of God)
will defeat the half truths of your foe.

Lies are used to wound you
so pick up the shield of faith
and the helmet of righteousness
and you are ready to war against the enemy.

Sometimes deliverance is needed,
sometimes a battle.
But I will help you bend the bow.
Fear not
for I will never leave you
or forsake you.

The righteous will live by faith
