We Can Sit

 

Sit and rest in the Lord.

It will determine tomorrow.

The effort is in God.

Your deeds may lead to sorrow.

Don’t forget who saved you.

It was Jesus and His love.

He finished the work,

And sits with His Father.

 

Walk in expectancy and faith,

And see what God will do.

Take the work you are given,

And let Him follow through.

Only He can make things happen,

No matter how hard you try.

Know who holds your tomorrow.

He made the stars and the sky.

 

Realize that all good things,

Come from your Father above.

When you draw from Jesus,

You will feel His amazing love.

Receive His grace first,

So that you also may give.

He is the living water,

That will allow us to live.

 

It is a special fountain,

That has everything we will ever need.

It will supply our needs,

So we may follow His creed.

He wants us to love,

Everyone we meet.

Then we can sit,

Next to the Father’s seat.

Ephesian 2:6

 

6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: 7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.

8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

 

It is pure and holy to go to God with your needs and then just sit and watch Him work things out. We are meant to sit with Him in high places. God wants to be needed. God wants us to rely on His goodness and His grace for our needs and our desires.  He wants us to recognize that all good things come from Him. It is not by our works but by His that we have anything. God wants us to rest while we work, knowing that God is watching over us and working things out for us. It may not be where you want to be in life or the job that you really want, but His is watching you, so continue to work while God sits and watches over you. If you believe that the King of Glory is watching over you, you also will be able to sit and rest as you work.
