Take time to behold Him

1
Take time to behold Him,
  Speak oft with Thy Lord,
Abide in Him always,
  And feed on His Word.
Wait thou in His presence,
  Submissive and meek,
Forgetting in nothing
  His blessing to seek.
2
Take time to behold Him,
  The world rushes on;
Spend much time in secret
  With Jesus alone.
By looking to Jesus
  Like Him thou shalt be;
Thy friends, in thy conduct,
  His likeness shall see.
3
Take time to behold Him,
  Let Him be thy guide;
And run not before Him
  Whatever betide;
In joy or in sorrow
  Still follow thy Lord,
And, looking to Jesus,
  Still trust in His Word.
4
Take time to behold Him,
  Be calm in thy soul,
Each thought and each temper
  Beneath His control.
Thus led by His Spirit
  To fountains of love,
Thou then shalt be fitted
  His mercy to prove.

In Col. 2:10  we have been made full in Christ, who is the Head of all rule and authority.

This can be our experience today in Christ and with Christ . We can testify that even though we go through difficulties and have problems, as we

take time to absorb the Lord with all His riches, we share in His ascension.

We transcend our situation and soar above all things.

Hallelujah! We are one with Him in His enthronement, and we are seated with Christ, far above all things.

Praise the Lord!!!

We can and should do a lot of things for the Lord that can be seen. As believers we must care for the church and minister Christ to people around us. But these activities must be based on a deep, hidden, unseen root system. - Basic Elements of Christian life Vol. 2

Therefore, we need to TAKE TIME to behold Him.

Take time to absorb Him

Take time to be holy, take time to behold Him, take time to absorb Him as the riches of the good land in Whom we are rooted.

"Not that I speak according to lack, for I have learned, in whatever circumstances I am, to be content.

I know also how to be abased, and I know how to abound; in everything and in all things I have learned the secret both to be filled and to hunger, both to abound and to lack.

I am able to do all things in Him who empowers me." - Philippians 4:11-13

Each thought and each temper

Beneath His control.

So encouraging... may we pay the price to deny our soul life & abide in the Lord, by spending much time in secret with Him.

We can call on the Lord, pray and praise Him and much more we can behold Him each time.

Spend much time in secret

With Jesus alone.

By looking to Jesus

Like Him thou shalt be.....
