Small to God can mean mountains to us, things that cause us concern;
Every day stuff that God takes in stride, problems that we can't discern.
We have the notion that life treats us harsh, determined that things go our way;
But if there is conflict we're quick to complain, we want to keep troubles at bay.
We don't seem to grasp, it's through troubles we grow, our faith being tested and tried,
How we react during difficult times with evil enticements denied.
God grants us the strength when we're willing to ask, but pride often stands in our way,
If we're not humble enough to seek help, we'll end up going astray.
We are not robots, we have a free will, God gave us the power to choose,
We know the difference between right and wrong, we know what we might stand to lose.
God has great patience, He won't always chide, but one day the roll call will come,
If our decision has cast God aside, our hearts will have turned cold and numb.
The day's not far off when our Lord will return, this time He'll settle the score,
If you have entered the straight, narrow gate, your peace is assured evermore.
All those great mountains, those cares and concerns, in a moment were cleaned from your slate,
Problems and heartaches, conflicts and trials no longer hold power o'er your fate.
Our capable God holds the reigns of your life, but you make your destiny sure,
He offers you all when you reach out to Him, a peace that will always endure.
The fear of man curtails him from doing what he should,
We fail to honour Jesus or witness as we could.
In truth, we need not answer the cursing of mankind,
We serve a living Saviour, we need not walk as blind.
Your mandate is to suffer if others mock His name,
Be fervent in your answer, be vibrant in your claim.
That Christ needs to be honoured not blasphemed in disgrace,
You claim it as a privilege, you witness face to face.
You show that sin is evil, such deeds should be despised,
Upholding truth and honour, rejecting hate and lies.
It’s not that you point fingers when men are drawn to sin,
But showing God’s displeasure when evil lurks within.
Let this message stir you, God will not be mocked,
He knows the heart’s desires and He is never shocked.
Yet He will judge the nation, He’ll bring man to his knees,
If man shows no repentance God cannot hear His pleas.
Peer pressure mustn’t influence the way each man may walk,
But if he is a Christian, it should reflect his talk.
The world is watching closely, your acts are on display,
Your actions will speak louder than any words that you may say.
You are the book they’re reading, don’t let it be a snare,
Be a vibrant witness, and bathe your life in prayer.
Let others see the Saviour by watching what you do,
And God will bless your efforts, His power lives through you.
