12-4-15 Fount of Your Ways

living water

For the work of a man shall he render unto him, and cause every man to find according to his ways.

Job 34:11 KJV

FOUNT OF YOUR WAYS

If you are turning daily toward the One,

Your mind and words and hands reflect His love.

There is no question what His grace has done;

There is no doubt at all what you’re part of.

Good deeds themselves does not a good man make;

God knows the kind of water that you drink.

You may in all your works sure take the cake

But if you guzzle sin you still will sink.

Through grace you’re born in Christ, by faith you live;

Your acts, though meager, show a water pure,

And from this living fountainhead you give, (John 7:38)

And it will multiply and long endure.

God will not judge a man by works alone. (Ephesians 2:9)

The source of nourishment will soon be known.

Assortment Of Bizarre Road Signs

Your daily life can be a lion’s den,

For Satan seeks to vex your very soul,

So you need wisdom time and time again

To face the opposition and stay whole.

Reach out to God your Father when in doubt;

You know He longs to give you what you ask.

The wisdom that you seek is there throughout

To move the right way through your current task.

You might be just the one somebody needs,

The nourishment that feeds their hungry heart;

Seek God’s great wisdom first and then proceed

To let His Spirit lead you from the start.

It’s foolish to rely on your own wit;

You’ll lose your way for sure as one unfit.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If any of you lack wisdom, you should ask God,

who gives generously to all without finding fault,

and it will be given to you.

James 1:5 NIV
