You call me Lord and you say that you love me But I can see your disguise You want the victory that I can give to you But you don’t yet realize That I must be conqueror, ruler and King of you Savior in the midst of your strife Comforter, counselor, Prince of Peace Creator and giver of life
How many know that if God wakes you up to these words, you would do well to pay attention? Now, I had written the lyrics for this song some thirty-three years ago and have sung them from time to time. But, for the most part, despite the catchy tune, the words are a little to convicting and I haven’t played it in a very long time.
But God reminded me of it.
I would like to think that He wanted me to tell you the words, to convict you, to let you know who He is. It would be nice to think that I’ve grown to where I preach at someone else.
Not today pal.
So again I ask myself, what do you want to be? What should I look like when I’m all grown up? What type of man do I want to be known as? Do I want God bad enough to want EVERYTHING He offers?
I want my legacy to be a life lived for Jesus. I want to live as a warrior for my King. I want those around me to know me as a servant, someone who loves deeply and puts his life on the line.
And, I want to know my God. I want to believe in Him in a way that goes beyond my words. I want His life, His plan, His love.
