Devotional Poetry, Biblical Poems

Biblical Poetry
Biblically oriented poetry that is intended to encourage, build faith and draw believers into more of a love for God's Word.
This poem describes how in knowing God we come into more of an intimacy with Him that causes us to be all that we can be in Christ.

The Discovery of Knowing God
By Ken L. Birks

You are intimately acquainted with all our ways, forevermore.
You know our thoughts, dreams, fears, sins, and more.
Where can we go? Nothing is hidden from You, yet You still love us.
Your thoughts towards us are more than can be numbered.
Our thoughts must be brought into your captivity, unencumbered.

Oh, that we would know You as You have known us, even in our sin.
Your greatness is beyond discovery. Where do we begin?
In Your Word and creation are hidden keys that reveal who You are.
Hidden treasures are discovered as we search for You with persistence.
Intimacy is discovered as we seek with all our hearts, without resistance.

As we seek You, misconceptions of who You are disappear.
Your Holy Spirit teaches us as He reveals Your nature, so near.
As we meditate on Your beauty and majesty, we discover Your ascriptions.
In Your Word we meditate and search out Your divine distinctions.
With Your Word and Your Spirit we go forth in discovery of who You are.

Your generosity fills our hearts as we observe Your handiwork in creation.
Your beauty and magnificence, uncover Your creative zeal.
Myriads of stars, streams, mountains, waterfalls and more, You reveal.
Your beauty and majesty are discovered by all who have detected.
In discovery, we know You as we open our eyes to all that You have created.

In Your omniscience, You have known our future and paths we take.
You go before us as a guiding light, knowing what’s already at stake.
How can we but trust in You as we navigate through dangers and pitfalls.
You thoughts are only of peace, to give a future filled with hope.
The more we discover, the more Your nature is revealed, which calls.

You alone are incomprehensible and inexhaustible in power and deeds.
In omnipotence, nothing is too difficult for You as Your power exceeds.
As You perform, You do the hard things, making our part attainable.
We do not underestimate Your power towards us in all things, assailable.
In discovery and knowing You, we remain linked to Your divine ability.

In all that you have created, Your eternal Godhead is clearly portrayed.
We are without excuse, as the sun, moon and stars are clearly displayed.
All energy is derived from the sun, as with the Father having life in Himself.
The moon reflects the glory of the sun, so Your Son reflects Your grandeur.
As Your Spirit is everywhere, so are the stars of heaven in all their splendor.
As we live and move in Your splendor, we experience Your intimacy within.

The Journey:
Discovering the Invisible Path

By Kenneth L. Birks

The Journey by Ken BirksThe goal of this book is to give you, as a Christian, a glimpse into the path God has purposed for your life and to help you seize your destiny and purpose. In doing so, you will be able to live the role created for you. Whether you are just starting out on your journey, anywhere in the middle, or have become detoured and lost your way, this practical guidebook will help shine the light on the invisible path that not only leads to God’s goodness and experiencing His kingdom within, but also to the greatest adventure of your life.

Comment: The Journey is your GPS for the Bible. The problem is solved. The riddle is deciphered. Like a trusted guide, Ken makes complex concepts simple and masterfully unpacks the Bible’s greatest mysteries. He provides a sure foundation upon which to build a lifetime of insight.—Francis Anfuso
