God Seeks Our Best
God is always present,
always seeking out our best;
He says He’ll never leave us,
For He gives us Love and Rest.
But if we carry burdens,
that are given not by Him;
they’re what we put upon us,
when temptation turns to sin.
If we fall into our sin,
God stretches forth His helping hand;
we take hold with all our strength;
and on our feet, we take our stand.
And as we take our stand,
in our God we love and trust;
we are mindful of His presence,
For His Word is Pure and Just.
As He delights in all His children,
Giving the desires of our heart,
we commit our ways to Him,
and His Love for us shall not depart.
The Lord takes pleasure in those who fear him, in those who hope in his steadfast love. (Psalm 147:11)
Delight thyself also in the LORD, and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the Lord: trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass. (Psalm37:4-5)
Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved. (Psalm 55:22)
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. (Psalm 46:1)
…..every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. (James1:14)
And most of all……
My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: (1 John 2:1)
