What Are You Attempting?
What are you attempting
That only God can do?
If others cannot see His hand
The glory goes to you.
Witnesses stand all around
To see what God will do,
But often shrug and turn their heads
To find its only you.
What are you attempting?
Is this from God or you?
If this is where God is at work
Then He will see you through.
The world sees Christians serving
And this is good and well,
But only what is God-sized
Will attract the world as well.
When it is unexplainable,
A task just God can do,
Then God is truly lifted up,
The glory is His due.
"Abraham never wavered in believing God's promise. In fact, his faith grew stronger, and in this he brought glory to God. He was absolutely convinced that God was able to do anything he promised." Romans 4:20-21 (New Living Translation)
