Donít Settle and Die
Terah lost Haran, His Son
On His way to Canaan
This darkened his sun
So he settled and died.
Donít park and die.
Abram was also told to leave country
To a place that would be shown
He was told to leave even family
Relatives, kit and kin, comfort zone.
Donít lie down and die.
Joshua was tempted to settle
After the death of Moses
God charged him to move the people
ĎMoses is dead. Move on, donít settle.í
Donít throw in the towel
Josephís dream saw disappointment
As he was thrown into the pit and prison
But God made it an appointment
To move Joseph into the palace.
Donít let go of your dream.
Jacob was wooed into scheming, supplanting
He ran for his dear life, became a fugitive
He later wrestled with God who got him moving
Again to fulfil his destiny, dream and assignment.
Donít settle and die!
Abraham failed God when he listened to Sarah,
Bringing forth, Ishmael, the son of the flesh
Yet he did not park and die, but believed Jehovah
To turn things around for him, get him moving again.
Failure is not final. Donít settle and die.
Paul was a pain, persecutor, murderer
Churchís greatest enemy, breathing havoc
But he moved on after he met the Redeemer
Rather than live in the Land of Regret forever.
Moses nearly settled in Midian, the desert
Because he jumped the gun, and ran for dear life
God met him in the desert and gave him a New Start
Yes, He dealt with all his excuses and got him going.
Donít settle and die.
Because of disappointments or failure
Depend on the Most High
Go forward, press on into the Land
