You’ll always be my Champion Strong
tho here wrong is right, and right is wrong
I’ll no not ever turn a deaf ear
though you seem so far, and the world so near
My eyes on heaven my final home
rest here incomplete, and my pillow a stone
I’ll long for heaven on my way to You
in a daily dress rehearsal of a life soon thru
To one day sit with my Champion Strong
on a throne reserved for me for eternity long
Lord You are with me like a dread champion….and to You I have set forth my cause! (from Jeremiah 20:11, 12)
Sometimes we do not realize what we have until we don’t have it.
As I have thought about what it means to be a “dread champion” I have pictured that You are the champion to be feared above all. There is none that matches any attribute or strength that You have — all line up beneath You — You are at the top! And your agenda, though we cannot always see it outright, is the only agenda worth buying into. In the end, when it is all said and done, You will have the last word; You will overcome; and You will reign over all, whether they believe that You will or not — You will!!!
“….so that at the name of Jesus,EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that EVERY TONGUE WILL CONFESS that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. So…..work out your salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure.” (from Philippians 2:10-12)
I feel so compelled to make this point clear while there is still time, before You return! I pray regularly for those close to me that they would come to KNOW YOU, because if they KNEW YOU, they would fall in love with you because they couldn’t help but to LOVE YOU. Who wouldn’t fall in love with a hero of all heroes who walked on water, made blind eyes see, turned water to wine, who now sits on a throne on the right side of the Majesty on High in the heavens, and will one day, with a word, cast all the evil into the lake of fire (Rev 20) leaving behind only good and only those who love You and want to serve You!
“It is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment.” Hebrews 9:27
God move them to decide now, because after death and/or after you return, all the deciding will have been done! And then they might realize what they could have had, but it will be too late!
