No Reason to Rejoice
Darkness covered the earth, formless and void
The Spirit brooded over the waters
The world needed a Creator
Slavery enveloped God’s people, 400 long years
The Spirit picked up a rejected man
The world needed a Deliverer
Swallowed in Roman oppression, an overthrow desired
The Spirit overshadowed a young virgin
The world needed a Savior
Souls bound in spiritual darkness, works of the evil one
The Spirit rested on a God-man
The world needed a Restorer
Nailed to a shameful cross, earth trembling violently
The Spirit raised up three days later
The world needed a King
Impossible situations, Reason whispers defeat
The Spirit quickens me to His word
My world needed a Reminder
The world has always been dark, hopeless, and oppressed–without Him
Who can stop a God not bound by reason? Who can curb the joy at His revealing?
I will rejoice.
