Praise God for being Faithful

and filling us with faith –
real faith that believes
God means what He says.

Our kin in the Garden
didn’t have that kind of faith,
but Noah did
in desert-like drought
when God said, “Build a boat.”

And Abraham had faith
to believe God had reasons
for saying, “Go!”

And Moses had faith
God meant each word
said to Pharaoh.

Praise God for giving us
faith to know
God means what He says
when, through Christ,
He forgives us –
when, through Christ,
He gives us His
power, His authority,
when, in Christ’s Body,
He calls us the church.
