Authority from on High
By Ken L Birks

With flashes of lightening the Lord speaks from on high.

His authority is awesome, with mighty displays of power and might.

We stand in awe with all that He has created with the sound of His voice.

He is held in fear and awe to all those who ascribe to His glory, so bright.

How do We draw nigh to One with such authority and power from on high?


He who is above all is near to those who are humble and contrite of heart.

From the blood of His slain Lamb we now approach with boldness.

He welcomes us with open arms and invites us to dine with Him, in closeness.

He covers us with His robe of righteousness as we stand in His presence, set apart.

A sense of newness washes over us as we gain new footing with a new heart.


We bask in His Word that has now become a lamp unto our path, so commanding.

As His Word washes over us we sense a cleansing from within.

With His Word, He now communicates and renews our minds with His thoughts.

Though His thoughts are much higher than ours, He gives us understanding.

We discover His thoughts towards us are peaceable, full of hope and expectation.

We now have a newfound boldness to approach Him and ask for anything.


Like flashes of lightening, new revelation and insight fill our mind.

With His Word sharper than a two edged sword, We discern His voice, so stout.

We realize His divine nature and mind are being imparted into our spirits, so entwined.

A new authority begins to give way to the old that was filled with unbelief and doubt.

In moments of quietness we hear His gentle voice giving instruction for the day.

We now walk in the quiet authority He has extended to those who stray.


We realize we have connected with the One who speaks with such authority.

We give thanks to the One who has counted us worthy to bear His Name with sincerity.

As our names are written in His great book, His name is recorded in our spirit.

Where His name has been recorded, He now daily loads us with blessings, happily.

We now belong whole heartedly to Him and have become a part of His great family.

What a joy to belong to such a wonderful family that is full of such love for on another.


With newfound authority, we now begin to walk with courage as we face the unknown.

Destiny and purpose fill our lives as we move forward in the life He has called for us.

The peace we longed for fills our hearts with such joy as we move forward in His grace.

Our hearts are full as we ascribe to Him glory and strength, giving glory unto His name.
