Topic: Expect (07/11/13)

TITLE: Expectant Faith

My faith expects
That God directs
According as He’s spoken
My hope relies
Though trouble tries—
His Word He’s never broken.

At His command
The heavens spanned
The world commenced to function
By faith alone
These facts are known—
Such faith is not presumption.

Earth, sea and sky
In works deny
The lie of evolution
God’s laws in place
Rule earth and space,
We see their execution.

For night and day
To all tribes say
In every land and nation
The evidence
Gives clear credence
God authored all creation.

And yet I know
The prophets show
Things still await fulfilment
And I expect
They’ll take effect
With Him there’s no annulment.

He soon will come
This self same Son
Who came before as Servant
This time to reign
O’er earth’s domain—
Be waiting and observant!

Should He delay
And scoffers say
‘Where is the Christ’s appearing?’
In faith be strong
It won’t be long—
Expect Him! He is nearing.
