Healing Foot Sores

The foot is full of rampant sores.
Oh Lord, how can this be?
How can your church have lost so much
Of its authority?

The Pharisees have plagued us
With traditions made by man.
the Sadducees, who don't believe,
Have mired us in quicksand.

They've dumped the dirt of criticism
Schisms on our feet.
Their sandy brine is full of slime,
Their clubs full of concrete.

With vengeful "sovereignty" they've
Wailed us so we scarce can stand.
To be plagued with a Job's disease
They claim is something grand.

"That poor guy's suffering for the Lord,"
They say. "And so should you.
Accept a little cancer for
Your pity party stew."

To Job they look, and hold the verse
"He gives and takes away."
But what does God's full Word
Upon this subject have to say?

For once Job truly saw the Lord
And truly understood
His character and that God
For his life desired good,

His sores it seemed were healed,
For double was restored to him,
Because he heard the gospel preached
Upon that road so slim.

As for the man who shared it,
Why, his name was Elihu.
It seems he's Samuel's ancestor.
(Now who'd have thought that. Who?)

His name, you see, means "He's my God"
Or yet, "My God is He."
On his heels came the whirlwind
That did finally set Job free.

It blew away all controversy
As to God's true power,
Restoring health and sanity
To Job that very hour.

This understanding gave to Job
The awesome revelation
Of who God truly was to Him
In every situation.

For as believers seek not only
God's gifts but His face,
How can they help but understand
The fullness of His grace,

His true desire to save and heal,
By His authority,
Not through opinions taught by man
But supernaturally?


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
