IN THE POWER OF THE SPIRIT
In the power of the Spirit
From the desert comes the Son
For thereís a work thatís calling Him
A work yet to be done.
To fill the desert hunger
From stones turned into bread
Tempted not the Son of God -
Heavenís manna kept Him fed.
Manna born of Godís own word,
Soul-food that fed the Son,
Empowered every step He took
Till the battle He had won.
Desert-scape may lay before you
Filled with footprints you have trod
But let yourself be only fed
With the nourishing words of God.
Words that will impart their strength
And guide you on your way
And guard you from becoming
The Tempterís tasty prey.
With every doubt he whispers
Into your weary heart
Remember the Son that walked it
And the wisdom He did impart.
When in the power of the Spirit
You step into that barren land
There you will discover
That for which it all was planned.
A place not meant for emptiness
For you, or for the Son,
For He will there accompany you
Until the task is done.
Together you will walk that path
Richly feasting on Heavenís word
And when the Tempterís whisper comes
Itís Heavenís voice that will be heard.
The stones they will not tempt you
To turn them into bread
For you have now discovered
What it means to be well fed.
Lifeís wilderness comes to each of us
Just like it came to Godís own Son
But its in the power of the Spirit
From which the desert victoryís won.
