Psalm 73: Immanent Sovereignty

"But it is good to be near God." (v.28a)

You are not a distant Lord,
a detached Master
moving the pawns
on the board
in an impersonal act
of winning.
Your Lordship
does not separate
me from you
as a serf
would be separated
from a king.
No, you accomplished
your sovereign plan
by invading my
dark and messy world
in the person
of your Son,
giving yourself
in radical grace
to people
who saw no value
in your nearness.
You are Master,
but you are
You are Lord,
but you are
You are King,
but you are
You are Sovereign
but you are
Your rule is not from
No, your rule brings you
I have hope today
because you are not
And I celebrate
the amazing
rest and strength
to be found in the reality that
your sovereignty
has brought you

Mr. Tripp,

Spurgeon has much to say on this in his book, The Power of Prayer in a Believer's Life. Great post, great read.

Life In The Hands of The Divine

We may never know life as it was
---- or as it is
but what is behind us
-- is the Lords
but what is ahead
- we do not recognize
or see- or may never see
we hold onto the promised
-- favor of the Lord
Life as it has been
may be no more
for eternity takes charge
redeemed -
is where we stand
-- the head bowed-
longs for the Savior-
What is- what was-
suddenly could not matter
for if today we drink
on the fine wine
----of eternity-
could we not see-
--can we not hear
-- or taste--
or know-
what belongs to the Divine.

Unquestionably consider that that you said.

Your favorite justification seemed to be on the net the simplest
factor to keep in mind of. I say to you, I definitely get irked whilst
other folks think about issues that they just don't know about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest as smartly as defined out the entire thing without having side effect , folks can take a signal. Will probably be again to get more. Thank you
