The Second Book of Inspirational Poetry byIrene Beales
A new poem will be shown each time you visit this page.
God can only work in lives fully surrendered to Him,
If you hold back the least little part -
His work of revival - just cannot begin.
Warming up to be nearer to God,
We need to continually study His word and pray -
Lets not be inconsistent - in following the path our forefathers trod.
Joel looked to the time when the Spirit would fill
Not just cover lives - as the saints of old know,
The building shook that day when prophecy was fulfilled.
The disciples were accused of being drunk with wine,
So ecstatic were they - filled with His love divine -
And thousands were saved that day - new life to find.
When will there be a revival?
Not while there's diversion and strife - God cannot do a great work
Without harmony between brothers and sisters in Christ.
Lets not be critical of what seems to us - out of place,
Accept each other in understanding and love.
If we do - He will open Heavens gate - and pour out His grace.
Into me and into you - so filled with His love and Holy Spirit -
We shall be compelled to go - into the Highways and byways -
To proclaim - "Salvation in Jesus" and love without limit.
