His Good Purpose

From Philippians 1:20:  “It is my eager expectation and hope that I will not be put to shame in any way, but that by my speaking with all boldness, Christ will be exalted now as always in my body, whether by life or by death.”

Facing world’s wickedness

Knowing God walks with thee

Surrounded by darkness

His good purpose foresees

 

Feeling Spirit’s mercy

Turning to Father’s aid

Rejoicing with boldness

His good purpose conveyed

 

Living in Christ brings gain

Soaking up trusting Word

Finding joy in faith’s hope

His good purpose now heard

 

Praising the Lord our God

Following divine moves

Feeding faithful hunger

His good purpose approves

 

Lifting up each stranger

Setting prisoners free

Loving with righteousness

His good purpose shall be

From Psalm 146:5:  “Happy are those whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord their God.”

  1. “Lifting up each stranger, setting the prisoner free”…I love this, Richard. I’ve been doing a study of James with Francis Chan. HIS good purpose~beautiful! As in James, faith without works is dead. Sharing the faith is so important and I thank
    You for doing that in your writing. Stay blessed.
