In this godless age

1
In this godless age
Lord, You need some Samuels
Burdened with a vision clear of Your economy
Where’s Your ark today?
And the ones who’d care for You,
E’en to put themselves aside to gain Your heart’s desire?
  Raise up some to meet Your need, some Nazarites,
Prophets, priests, and judges, and men of prayer,
Speaking forth Your word, with Your authority,
A photo of Your heart for Your move.
2
Train us up today,
Full of vision, seeking You,
We’d await Your timing, fully subject to Your will,
Treasuring Your face,
Staying in Your presence, Lord;
E’en the very index of Your eyes would we obey.
  Raise up some to meet Your need, some Nazarites,
To bring in Your kingdom on earth today,
Taking You as King that You may return
To usher in the end of the age.
3
When God wants to move,
He must gain an instrument;
Overcomers separated from the current age.
They have joined themselves
Through His word to His desire.
Overcomers constituted with the Holy Word.
  Raise up some to meet Your need, some Nazarites,
Voluntary consecrated ones,
Who through Your word are joined to Your desire;
Your living testimony on the earth.
4
God needs men who pray;
Those who lay the tracks for Him;
God’s economy is carried out through men of prayer.
They love not themselves;
But a willing sacrifice.
What they fear—offending God, losing His presence dear.
  Make us those who meet Your need, the Nazarites.
Make us those through whom You’d close this age;
Who are one with You to bring the kingdom in,
Young people absolute for Your move.

I love this song! I also never knew there were four verses- only used to the first 2. I was touched this time that The Lord will not return until we take Him as our King. Each day we need to enthrone Him in our thoughts, actions, and in our being. We need to lay the tracks and fear offending Him, really fear doing anything to lose His presence. Oh Lord we are not absolute. Make us Your absolute ones!

Good morning friends today as I woke up I realize that God is so good to me, even when things are going rough with me guess what He is right there. The time came as I lost my mother & the way she died I never admit how she died, but one day as I were siting in this restaurant and this young man looks at me and some how all these tears just comes flowing, then I say God why, why did You take her so soon because she was so far from me & now what am I going to do without her. His response Deslyn she is right here in your heart & am right here with you so don't let go, I said I know but I love her so much and what am going to do now, again He said Deslyn your mother is a beautiful lady & you are beautiful also and guess what she is going to make it in the Kingdom and so are you so don't cry am right by your side as always, I cry again & say ok Jesus I know & I love you Mom.

Young people, how we need to rise up to be the Nazarites of this age. May we be those voluntary consecrated ones like Samuel ,David, Isaiah and the Lord Jesus when they were living on this earth. Every age, God is calling for those overcomers who will turn the age . May we be those who take heed to His call.

Make us those who meet Your need, the Nazarites.

Make us those through whom You'd close this age;

Who are one with You to bring the kingdom in,

Young people absolute for Your move.

May this just be our prayer.
