Last weekend I was in Christchurch (New Zealand). I was invited to do a seminar there. I spoke on "Entering Into Promise and Inheritance.'
When I had finished a young woman gave me this poem that she had written while I had been speaking. It is an excellent synopsis of everything I had been talking about.
OUR PROMISED INHERITANCE - by Madeline Bay 16 June 2018
We take our inheritance by the sole of our foot
One step at a time, our faith in You put
Not looking down on these days of small things
Each little step deeper levels of freedom it brings.
Freedom from fear of getting it wrong
For Father, You’re there parenting all along
You are loving us here, right where we are
But this love guarantees You’ll move us afar.
Your love gives us grace to make our own choice
To go chase the giants and seek out Your voice
And if we make a mistake and begin to fall
We can run to Your bosom and You’ll take it all.
We need not be ashamed to hide in Your chest
It is in the perfect depths of Your love we find our rest
You let us hide there until our pursuers are gone
Bask in comfort ’til our crown of sonship is firmly on.
This sonship is not by striving, power or might
Through it you reduce us to something bigger and bring us to life
You strip away all of our crap and our leaves
In us Your incarnate glory is manifest as the waters recede.
