Just Ask The Rock

While Israel sojourned in the dreary wilderness
They lacked water as they marched through dry land
They asked and received – God of the faithful band
Filled the thirsty throats from a flinty Rock
This Rock was ever present through the journey
Ever merciful, ever bountiful and always on cue
Paul tells us this ambulatory Rock was Christ
Smitten in type in the wilderness, He gushed to bless
A Fountain that saved millions of souls in distress
There He was struck that we be not dumbstruck
There He was smitten that we may never be beaten
He has since been crucified and then glorified
Speaking is the only way of accessing the Fount now
Say your need and make requests on any matter
Be not silent in the weary mode of a wary doubter
Speak to The Rock and He will bring forth His water

Mouth It

In the beginning was the Word
And what God spoke became
Today He asks us to do same
To feed on the Word of His mouth
And become like Him-the Word
To be like Him is to speak
And call things that are not
By mention to bring them forth
Confession is the true compass
That makes the heart faith’s port
Where salvation’s ship will berth
Be not afraid to say the promises
For speaking brings a creative birth
Where reality is formless and void
When in doubt, speak the Word out

 

Sixth Sense

Five senses help you know what is
Like multiple antennae they tell
Minutiae of physical world well
Yet what is apparent may not be right
Faith’s path is not illuminated by sight
The heroes of Hebrews Eleven fame
Faced daunting odds and made a name
By standing courageous in sun and rain
They felt something beyond ordinary
Having the gift of spiritual irritability
They received stimuli from above
And believed in things unseen
Based on information that was unreal
They lived in two worlds of fact and faith
Five senses validated the factual world
The sixth sense believed the revealed world
Their sixth sense was so strong and superior
That it’s witness trounced the five prior
And alternate reality became certainty
And if we in good conscience use this sense
The unseen will become manifested reality
Here’s a warning for any sixth sense believer
Never fact-check the sixth sense of faith
Instead rebut the five unbelief practitioners
The Word will rout their testimony of doubt
