Whosoever draws nigh to God
He is sure to draw nigh to him.
Whosoever asks something of God
He is sure to be heard and the request
Will be considered with us in mind.
For the Father knows what is best for us
He knows our needs before they are asked.
And each of us requires different answers.
Our greatest exigencies are trust and faith.
Without faith it is impossible to please God,
Without trust we cannot possibly obey Him.
Without a close walk with God we will not hear
What is required of us and what waiting means.
For to wait when an answer does not come,
Therein lies the true test of the believer’s faith.
The believers needs are often met after trials
Are endured and prayer shawls frayed.
Well done thou good and faithful servant
Often comes at the end of a dusty journey.
When the refiners fire has done its work.
