Waiting on the Lord
By Ken L Birks

Waiting on the Lord, our lamps are kept fully lit.
With strength and vitality, we press on to outwit.
Into realms unknown, He takes us, entirely abandoned.
Mounting up on the wings of an eagle, we don’t faint.
Led by the Spirit, we’re free to soar without constraint.

With hearts of expectation, we embrace all that is decreed.
As the Father’s heart is searched, He reveals what’s needed.
With divine nature imparted, perspectives in life change.
Waiting on the Lord, He generously pours into our hearts.
With the mind of Christ, greatness is known in all parts.

By believing and confessing, faith arises meeting expectations.
Acknowledging God in all our ways, He directs our aspirations.
Fully convinced of His promises, we wait on Him who performs.
Trusting in Him, we wait as He brings to pass our desires.
With submission, paths are made straight for what He requires.

With an ear to His voice, we listen and wait as He instructs.
Presenting our prayers and petitions, He listens and conducts.
Praying without ceasing, our minds stay on Him.
With a still small voice, He whispers as we hear His secrets.
Responding, we go from faith to faith as zealots.

As we wait on Him, gifts arrive for serving and ministry.
Being attentive to the needs of others, we wait in symmetry.
With selfish ambitions set aside, we minister, accordingly.
In serving and waiting, grace flows in new dimensions.
Soaring to new heights, we wait on Him who strengthens.

Prophetic Purposes BookProphetic Purposes
& the Zeal of the Lord

By Kenneth L. Birks
The essence of this book considers that God has sovereign purposes that will yet be fulfilled through His sovereignty. In performing them, He uses imperfect vessels do so. How does our free will work together with God’s sovereignty to bring forth His purposes to fulfills them from one generation to another? This book explores these questions and much more. We discover that one of the Father’s most significant traits—His patience combined with our obedience allows us to be involved with Him.
