Oh that Christians would want to listen
To what the Spirit of God would have to say
There would be and end to many struggles
As they would hear, my child, go this way
We seem to teach religion
Just follow the letter of the law
Our flesh gets all glory
But Godís will is not wanted at all
Godís Word tells us to be led by the Spirit
Yet many teach us to be led by the word
But the Bible clearly teaches
It is the Spiritís sword
The Holy Spirit wants to lead
He wants to empower
He wants to show us Godís way
That will bring new victory in this hour
Godís ways are higher
Than all that man can think
We fight spiritual wars with carnal weapons
And we wonder why the results always stink
If we could just get our imaginations out of the way
And allow Godís knowledge to penetrate our mind instead
We would find that many battles would never be or would be won
Because our flesh is crucified and we are Holy Spirit led
Jesus was our example
He only spoke what the Father said
He did what He saw the Father do
He was Holy Spirit led
He did only the will of His Father
He gave up us own will
So if we are crucified with Christ and itís only Him living in us
Would not Jesus through us be doing this still?
God has not changed
But man seems to determined to run the show
Does man have no clue?
That they need Godís ways to know?
God has not changed
Miracles He still will do
Yet this can never happen
Until it is by His Spirit, and not you.
