Simple and self-explanatory.
All we need to do is ask and He’ll grant our petitions.
The very best that you can ask is just to be with Jesus.
So many things we often want don’t satisfy when we get them.
Are you ready to leave all behind, let go of all that holds you?
Don’t be surprised if what you get is not what you imagined.
You won’t be disappointed if you ask for nothing but the best.
Written in Bernalillo, New Mexico; January 1984
We met Alan Gilbert, a young man who had been in a terrible car accident which left terrible consequences on body and mind. While he would put on a brave face, we knew it was a put-on. This song came to confront him with reality and to encourage him to repent and believe. He went away apparently as hardened as ever. The mystery of iniquity is something at which to marvel.
Music on The Path of Truth
In our losses we bore as we forsook all to follow the Lord, we were discovering that "a man's life does not consist in the abundance of that which he possesses." We were also learning about the sovereignty of God, how He is over all and engineers all things according to His will.
