His Fast and His Sabbath
If you turn your foot away from doing your own pleasure
and call My Rest your delight...
you won’t speak your own words or seek your own way...
because this is no longer your fight.
What was “the heritage of Jacob they father”,
that He said He would feed us with?
Could it be to inherit Jesus Himself
and eat “That” magnificent gift?
Have you ever ridden on “the high places of the earth”,
or “heard the morning stars sing”?
Have you ever considered: From the dust of the earth....
He formed you to be a king?
Do you remember He said, If you delight yourself
in My Way, your desires, I’ll fulfill?
Yet, the sound that is heard is mostly our words...
when we should be listening and “Be still”...
and trust that He’ll do all that we asked;
He said, Trust in Him and He’ll bring it to pass.
The fast that He’s chosen, isn’t to get Him to do...
the things that He’s already promised to you;
He said, Loose wicked bands and undo heavy burdens;
Let the oppressed go free;
Break every yoke that binds them to The Lie...
so they can come freely to Me.
“Then, shall thy light break forth as the morning,
as well as thy health, speedily”;
“You will call and I will answer...”to guide you continually...
like a spring of water, whose waters won’t quit;
A watered garden that He’ll never forget.
“Your light will rise in obscurity;
Your darkness be as the noonday”;
His foundation for all generations,
if you’ll lay aside your own way.
Isaiah Chapter Fifty-eight,
verses six thru fourteen
