Empowered by the Holy Spirit

Lost in delusions of self-destructive ways, we look for comfort
Worn down with the same results, we look for something new.
Looking for a magic formula, we dream away, lost in confusion.
No longer satisfied, with what once filled, we contemplate.
Once empowered by dreams of success, disillusionment settles.

Hearing others speak of empowerment from above, we give ear.
With interest piqued, we look for answers with listening ears.
With childlike faith, we step into thoughts foreign to our thinking.
A breath of hope materializing, we consider what’s left behind.
Nothing to lose, we embrace this new way, trusting as we go.

From faith to faith, belief in this unknown path becomes clear.
Given to the path wholeheartedly, we commit to empowerment.
With full realization, we immerse ourselves in God’s Holy Spirit.
Giving up on self sufficiency, we rely on His sufficiency to sustain.
Empowered by His Spirit, we press forward in all freely given.

As His truth becomes reality, it sparks heated passion within.
As belief and faith merge with His Spirit, ignited passion produces.
Empowered with fresh vision and understanding, we run to gain.
No longer lost in confusion, freedom from the past, we’re free to fulfill.
With promises given, we fully embrace all that’s told wholeheartedly.

Ken Birks has written a masterpiece of superb continuity. The majestic flow from theme to theme contains powerful prophetic revelation, as God calls His end-time warriors to arise. I was also amazed by the poems that followed each devotional – the words were Davidic and musical – they flowed like a delightful stream with heavenly impartations. – Edward Becker, Senior Pastor, Naches Valley Community Church, Yakima, WA
