Lord, now I see

1
Lord, now I see,
You only want me to believe;
Not to dwell
In all my failures and defeats;
To believe what You have done,
And not in what I see.
2
Lord I believe,
When all around me is defeat
And it seems that nothing’s changing outwardly.
No! I’m not discouraged,
I’m believing You.
3
Yes, I believe,
And there is no demand on me.
Simple faith, yes, that is all You want from me.
Freed from anxious doubting—
I’m free to just believe!
4
Believing You,
Because, Lord, You are my success!
When I fail, all I must do is just confess,
And go on enjoying You—
I love believing You!

When we believe, Satan will present a mountain of evidence contrary to God’s word, but as we persevere in faith, the mountain begins to erode, until our experience lines up with the word of God. This quote is from Watchman Nees Overcoming Life. So we don’t have to be discouraged just go on believing God. Who are you going to believe, your situation or God’s word? Hallelujah for simple faith.

While the lyrics say “There is no demand on me, only simple faith” it is not theologically accurate. The faith given to us leads to loving obedience it still makes demands on us that unbelievers misconstrue as a burden. Jesus said “Take up my cross and follow me”.

These principles is so key to peace. We fail so much and are witness to so much defeat. But we can go on because the Lord gave all for us.

Our biggest defeats and failures are the Lord's biggest victories. He alone is our success.
