God's Word Is The Final Authority!

God’s Word… The Final Authority!


There is something held sacred

 by our government’ institution...

This is what we call;

 “The United States Constitution…”


This is a document that many

 look to as “a moral guide.”

Is causing wrong vs. right…

  A “great divide…”


This is a piece of paper

 signed by several men…

But is not where the final

 authority begins!


God’s word is the final authority.

 It needs to rule our minds!

Anything less is like

“walking on land mines…”


The ten commandments which

 were written so long ago.

Are still relevant  And were written

 to protect your soul!


The words written in God’s book

 are HIS principles for living!

These divine and pure words to us…

  Is what he is giving!


There’s no Supreme Court sitting

 next to God’s throne!

His decisions are FINAL! 

And are his alone!


Won’t you live according

 to HIS words today?

And listen to HIS words…

 Not what man has to say!


His word can save you and

 make your life complete…

And shall bring rest to

your weary feet…


It will protect and shield you

 from God’s holy wrath.

And is a light and a lamp

 unto our path…

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
