Just Ask God - Poem by Richard Merrell

Ask God for his Spirit
And you will receive
If you ask believing
For faith does not deceive.
God wants to give you
Riches in the Christ, Jesus
The one who asks of God by faith
Obeys God and God pleases.
God did not leave us
Alone when Christ did rise;
He sent his Holy Spirit
To open our blinded eyes.
The Spirit helps us see the truth
Regarding our salvation;
Take the Word to ourselves
This is, appropriation.

You must believe in every word
The Scripture has to say;
The God spirated writings
Is fulfilled in the Christ today.
You need the Holy Spirit
Know Scripture, not just quote it
You need the Holy Spirit
After all the Spirit wrote it!
So ask God for his Spirit
With Scripture it's in accord
'Not by might, nor by power;
but by my Spirit' saith the Lord.
