Have you spent time in the throne room today?
Have you spent quality time with Him, or did you rush away?
Did you linger at His feet?
Linger in His presence, so pure, so sweet?
Did you let Jesus soothe your soul’s pain?
Did you let him refresh you, once again?
Did you accept His Word’s healing balm
Whispered with love and authority
And with a voice so cool, so calm?
Did you give Jesus sufficient time?
To tell you about his love—
Tried and true,
Ready at your bidding to be lavished upon you?
Or did you rush absentmindedly away?
Not give Jesus ample time today?
Ample time – for him to remind you
That he sees far beyond your limited view,
That his unfailing mercies
Are prepared and packaged just for you?
Did you pause in his holy presence?
So he could explain,
That you need not agonise,
Despair, or nurse that pain?
Dear wounded, weary, hurt or searching one
Relinquish your load,
Rejoice, and trust God anew
For the road to victory,
The key to your breakthrough,
Lies not in confusion, questions or tears
Lies not in rebellion, anger or fears.
Let me tell you dear daughter,
The solution you seek
Is available this hour, this day, this week!
Yes, the answer is found
In His presence profound,
In tarrying in His throne room,
Trusting His Word,
Waiting for his voice of wisdom,
Waiting patiently – not perturbed!
And should that answer come winging
From heaven’s miraculous sphere,
Remember to thank him,
Remember to praise,
Remember to worship the Ancient of Days.
