Before Him


You, O Lord, are in
Your holy temple

let all the earth
be still

as knowledge of
Your glory covers us

until like the sea
we’re filled.


You are Lord of everything and You are with me.


“For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.”

“But the LORD is in His holy temple. Let all the earth keep silence before Him.”

Habakkuk 2:14, 20 NKJV

Longsuffering With Joy


O Lord, we pray to be filled
with the knowledge of Your will

walking closer and closer
with You

strengthened with all might
by Your glorious light

joyous in what
we go through.


You are with me for all longsuffering with joy.


“For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;”

“that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God;”

“strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy . . .”

Colossians 1:9,10,11 NKJV

Counting Loss


Nothing compares
with knowing You

and Your resurrection

to share in
Your sufferings

being conformed
hour by hour.


You are with me as my most excellent gain.


“But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ.”

“But indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ . . .”

” . . .that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed in His death.”

Philippians 3:7,8,10 NKJV

the fragrance of Your knowledge

wherever we go
into every life.

Oh thank You God
for how You lead us

always in triumph
always in Christ.


You are with me, touching lives wherever I go.


“Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Chriat, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.” 2 Corinthians 2:14 NKJV

Accept Knowledge


Accept My knowledge
and understanding

and always
think about Me

for nothing good comes
from idols

and behaving


I will be okay today only because You are with me.


“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.
Because you have rejected knowledge . . . .you have forgotten the law of your God. “

“For Israel is stubborn
Like a stubborn calf;
Now the Lord will let them forage
Like a lamb in open country.”

Hosea 4:6,16. NKJV

Say The Word


Each time
I speak to you

My words are sent
to heal

to grow a faith
in you that’s great

and a knowledge that
is real.

You establish my faith.

” ‘ But say the word and my servant will be healed.’ When Jesus heard these things, He marveled at him, and turned around and said to the crowd that followed Him, ‘I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel.’ “. Luke 7:7,9 NKJV

Grief and Sorrow


Do not seek wisdom
just to be wise
or knowledge
to be smart

but let Me guide you
in all these things
adding understanding
to your heart.

A laid down life is not lived in vain

“For in much wisdom is much grief, and he who increases knowledge increases sorrow.” Ecclesiates 1:18 NKJV

Stored Up Wisdom


As you
receive My word
and treasure
My command

you will find
the knowledge of God
your heart will

A laid down life has wisdom stored up for it.

“My son, if your receive my words , and treasure my commands within you, so that you incline your ear to wisdom, and apply your heart to understanding; then you will understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God. For the LORD gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding; He stores up sound wisdom for the upright.” Proverbs 2:1,2,5,6

Ask Me for wisdom
and understanding
accept My counsel
and reproof

for this is the way
to knowledge
how to dwell safe
and secure.

A laid down life receives instruction.

“A wise man will hear and increase learning, and a man of understanding will attain wise counsel. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge. Turn at my reproof; surely I will pour out my spirit on you; I will make my words known to you. Whoever listens to me will dwell safely, and will be secure, without fear of evil.” Proverbs 1:5,7,23,33 NKJV
