We Need a Word from You, Lord!

We Need a Word from You, Lord!

We don’t need another fancy, must have, hi-tech gadget, another up-to-the-minute, lifestyle guru, another politician with another master plan, another entertainer to mesmerize the masses, another organization to help us get organized, another money magician to make riches appear, another prophet with a slick, faithless presentation, another magic pill that repairs here, impairs there, another hobby that hinders us from hallowing You, or another wonder that weakens our worship of You.

We Need a Word from You, Lord!

Your word formed, framed, and filled the heavens. Your word authorized, adorned, and animated the land, seas, and sky. Your word declared, endorsed, and determined the design, desire, and the duty of man, divulging your desire for his ultimate destiny, to be with you forever. Your word is powerful. Your word is prolific. Your word is proper. Your word is praiseworthy. Your word is permanent.

Lord, what we need is a Word from You. A word to remove our blinders and give us understanding and insight into what’s right, a word to stir us to act on your principles, practice your philosophy, a word to lift and rejoice our hearts, a word to revive our weary souls, a word to save us from our sin, a word to help us endure to the end, Lord, we need a word from You. Speak Lord, speak. Our minds, Lord teach. Our hearts, Lord reach. Our souls, Lord save. Speak a word to usher us into your presence. Lord, we need a word from You.

Lord Jesus—the WORD—we need Y-O-U…

Psalm 19:7-11MSG
The revelation of God is whole
and pulls our lives together.
The signposts of God are clear
and point out the right road.
The life-maps of God are right,
showing the way to joy.
The directions of God are plain
and easy on the eyes.
God's reputation is twenty-four-carat gold,
with a lifetime guarantee.
The decisions of God are accurate
down to the nth degree.
God's Word is better than a diamond,
better than a diamond set between emeralds.
You'll like it better than strawberries in spring,
better than red, ripe strawberries.
There's more: God's Word warns us of danger
and directs us to hidden treasure.
Otherwise how will we find our way?
Or know when we play the fool?

I Owe Jesus
