God's Assurance - Poem by Gerry Legister

After spending so many years in the wilderness
God's assurance is that He will be with us,
Many of us also look at our own inadequacy,
And live every day in despondency.
Sometimes broken and humbled,
What's the only thing we really need?
It is God's assurance that he will be with us
Never forsake or leave us in a mess.
Many of us also look at our own failures
and doubt that God could possibly cares
God can see us through the rubble,
But we hide ourselves in times of trouble.
He wants us victorious over every hurdle,
Climb the highest mountain and walk in the valley,
He desires to deliver us so that we may live free,
Free of sin, free of guilt, free to choose our destiny.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

Many of us also look at our own inadequacy and doubt that God could possibly want to use us.
