When we are consumed

With whatever it may be,

It absorbs our heart and soul

And it becomes idolatry.

When troubles they consume us

They are simply magnified,

Because when they’re fuelled by our thoughts

Our worries won’t subside.

When we are consumed

By any situation too,

There will be no rest or respite

With anxiety in all we do.

When we are consumed

By any relationship as well,

There may be jealousy and insecurity

Where suspicion it may dwell.

But when we hand it over to God

And lay it at His feet,

There’s a burden that is released

Where comfort and peace will greet.

The devil tries to consume us

In every way he can,

He will tempt us and place fear;

To manipulate at his demand.

The Lord will consume

Satan and all his ways,

And destroy every wickedness

Where God’s glory will remain.

God wants us to be consumed

In Him and in His ways,

To be placed in His tender care

And where clarity remains.

As we humbly bow the knee

And ask for forgiveness too,

We’ll be liberated in many ways

With a vision that is true.

He gives us power and a sound mind

And eradicates confusion;

With a renewed heart and a steadfast faith;

With a genuine new mission.

When we ask ourselves the question

As to what really consumes us,

We analyse our situation;

Our desires and our lusts.

Jesus sets us free

When His Spirit comes to live,

In our heart and soul forever

As we’re consumed by only Him.
