How Much More Has Been Given!
By Joanne Standfield
The Holy Spirit would empower
the mighty saints of old,
like Elisha, Jeremiah and Ezekiel
filling their mouths and making them bold.
How much more has been given
to you and me my friend,
for this same Holy Spirit
lives in us, never coming to an end.
You are now His dwelling place
anointed with His power
for your life He has a purpose
to be fulfilled in this hour.
Our life here is so fleeting,
it so quickly slips away
don’t waste it on temporal things,
rise up and seize the day!
Dwell in that secret place
keeping His Word before your eyes,
listen for His small, still voice,
run the race, to win the prize!
‘..Let us run with patient endurance and steady and active persistence
the appointed course of the race that is set before us.’
‘I press on toward the goal to win the supreme and heavenly prize
to which God in Christ Jesus is calling us upward.’
