God promised me a Filling Pow’r
His Helper gave to me.
But I, instead of living filled,
live empty, in defeat.
God gifted me the Holy Ghost
Through Jesus’ sacrifice.
Instead of living in His strength
I struggle and I fight.
God purposed truth and peace for me.
His Comforter to know.
His wisdom and His knowledge vast
Will show me where to go.
God’s Holy Promise is my Seal.
No earthly force can stand.
No power of hell can harm my soul,
If under His command.
So in my journey through this world,
Through valley’s dark and long,
I trust my unseen Promised Help.
He’ll safely lead me home.
“Father, help me to know that You have not abandoned me.
In every step I take, remind me that You have given me
Your power in the Holy Spirit.
Teach me Your wisdom and knowledge.
Make me bold in the Holy Spirit to
walk in ways I would never dare to walk alone.”
And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper,
to be with you forever,
even the Spirit of truth,
whom the world cannot receive,
because it neither sees him nor knows him.
You know him,
for he dwells with you and will be in you.“
John 14:15-17 (ESV) ~
