Have Faith In God

"Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see." Hebrews 11:1 (NIV)

Today, in the middle of the storm, this old hymn came to my mind:

Have Faith In God
B.B. McKinney

Have faith in God when your pathway is lonely
He sees and knows all the way you have trod
Never alone are the least of His children
Have faith in God, have faith in God

Chorus:Have faith in God, He's on His throne
Have faith in God, He watches o'er his own
He cannot fail, He must prevail
Have faith in God, have faith in God

Have faith in God when your prayers are unanswered
Your earnest plea He will never forget
Wait on the Lord, trust His Word and be patient
Have faith in God, He'll answer yet

Have faith in God in your pain and your sorrow
His heart is touched with your grief and despair
Cast all your cares and your burdens upon Him
And leave them there, oh, leave them there

Have faith in God tho' all else fail about you
Have faith in God He provides for His own
He cannot fail tho' all kingdoms shall perish
He rules He reigns upon His throne

How thankful I am for all those Wednesday and Sunday nights and the ministers of music who had the congregation sing all the verses of a song. God has been so faithful to bring back these golden nuggets of truth embedded deep in my brain just when I need them. I learned these words as a child, then so unfamiliar with the anguish and trials that led these precious men and women to write these words. Now I know what they were talking about and remember their example to give me hope that my God is on the throne today, mighty to save me.

Have faith in God, my dear friend, He is on the throne!
