The Things I Heard God Say

17 You will not need to fight in this battle. Position yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord, who is with you, O Judah and Jerusalem! Do not fear or be dismayed; tomorrow go out against them, for the Lord is with you.

2 Chronicles 20:17 (NKJV)

We are being persecuted for being Christians. We are being attacked by an enemy that is of this world. We feel hopeless. We ask, “Where are you, God?” We begin to put our trust in things, man, and ourselves. We forget what God has done, What He has said, what He has promised. Not a word failed of any good thing which the Lord had spoken to the house of Israel. All came to pass. (Joshua 21:45 NKJV). The battle is not ours to fight! But it is our responsibility to position ourselves where God wants us to be. To watch and see what God is doing; what He is going to do, without fear and dismay. For God is with us always! Whatever happens, remember in what God has said; trust in Him!

 

I may never live to see the sun rise again.

I may never live to fight a battle again to win.

But if this does indeed prove to be my last day,

I will always remember the things I heard God say.

 

“I took care of Joseph in the prison and the pit.

I took care of Elijah when Jezebel threw a fit.

I took care of millions when I heard their cry.

Out of Egypt they came as Pharaoh said good-bye.

 

“I parted the Red Sea when the armies were marching in.

I loved My people after they worshiped the golden calf in sin.

I took out Goliath when he frightened even King Saul.

I gave King Solomon everything. He had it all.

 

“For years My people have turned away from me.

They followed after everything that their eyes could see.

And I walked with those who stayed true in their heart,

For they were the ones from whom my revivals did start.

 

“I took care of sin when I sent the world My Son.

I gave eternal life to all who accept Him as the One

Who came down from Heaven and did defeat the foe.”

And that’s all I need to understand; all I need to know.

 

I may never live to see the sun rise again.

I may never live to fight a battle again to win.

But if this does indeed prove to be my last day,

I will always trust the things I heard God say.
