Trin-I-Tee 5:7 – “Psalm 139” 

Trin-I-Tee 5:7’s “Psalm 139” from their 2011 album “Angel & Chanelle.”

 

Lord, You search me and
You know me
when I sit and when I rise.

You know all my thoughts
and all my ways
when I wake or close my eyes.

If I go up to the heavens
or through the depths of Hell…

Your Spirit still will seek
me out and rescue me from
there

Where could I run?
Where could I flee?
Where could I go where
you would not be?

On the wings of the dawn
or over the sea.
Even there you would find
me.

Where could I run?
Where could I flee?
Where could I go where
you would not be?

On the wings of the dawn
or over the sea.
Even there you would find
me.

Lord find me…

For you’ve knitted me
together
deep inside my mother’s
womb.

Just as you’ve delivered me
from this earthly tome.

And if time’s an empty page
where you record what is
to be…

Then my life is like a story
that you’ve written just for
me…

Where could I run?
Where could I flee?
Where could I go where
you would not be?

On the wings of the dawn
or over the sea.
Even there you would find
me.

Where could I run?
Where could I flee?
Where could I go where
you would not be?

On the wings of the dawn
or over the sea.
Even there you would find
me.

And I cry search me, know
me, Holy God…

And I cry search me, know
me, Holy God…

Where could I run?
Where could I flee?
Where could I go where
you would not be?

On the wings of the dawn
or over the sea.
Even there you would find
me.

Where could I run?
Where could I flee?
Where could I go where
you would not be?

On the wings of the dawn
or over the sea.
Even there you would find
me.

And I cry search me, know
me, Holy God…

And we cry Holy, Holy,
Holy God…

Where could I run?
Where could I flee?
Where could I go where
you would not be?

On the wings of the dawn
or over the sea.
Even there you would find
me.

Lord find me…

 

Psalm 139:23, 24

Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting

I CAN

But be ye doers of the word

 

We have a tendency to get less done for Christ than He wants us to do. The reason that we don’t get more done is:

We talk ourselves out of it – I can – Paul said, I can and we say, “I can’t.” When an opportunity or a need arises, we might be willing at first, but then our minds start thinking of the excuses that we need to give when we don’t get it done. You might not get it done, but it won’t be because you couldn’t but because you wouldn’t.

We don’t get going – Do – James said, “Be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves,” Jas 1:22. There comes a time when you need to do more than just pray about it, or talk about it, or think about it or seek counsel about it. You need to just get up and go do it. Make up your mind and then act on it.

We limit our scope – all things –Anything that God wants to be done that He wants you to do you can do. If I say I can’t, I won’t. If I say I can, I might. But if I say I do, I will!! We can finish the building, get a visitor here for an evangelistic service, open a Bible and show someone how to be saved, be in a drama, sing a special, pray effectually, pass out Bibles in my neighborhood, be faithful to attend another service, wait for the right person before I get married, go to the mission field, answer the call to preach, etc.

We don’t rely on the power within us – through Christ –Inside of every Christian is the Lord Jesus Christ, who said “greater works than these shall he do,” Jn 14:12. Jesus rose from the dead and the power of His resurrection resides within us (Phil 3:10). Jesus said, “All power is given unto Me in heaven and in the earth,” Matt 28:18. So, how much more power do you need? A friend said that the reason some of his workers are no longer doing their work is that they were gifted but not godly!

We try to do it ourselves – which strengtheneth me – We look at our own resources or think with our own understanding and say, “there is no way.” But the Lord said, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths,” Prov 3:5-6. We are base, foolish, and weak, but He is strong. David, who killed Goliath, said, “I will go in the strength of the Lord God,” Ps 71:16.

Conclusion: Whatever the Lord has been wanting you to do that you have failed to accomplish or have talked yourself out of doing, you just need to get going on and do because He said you can get it done through Christ.
