When we have little faith in a big God
We’ve come to understand,
That although our prayers are sweet smelling aromas
They’re little gems in His big hands.
When we humble ourselves in sincere faith
And recognise His majesty,
We are meek, contrite and have respect
Where His miracles we see.
To have little faith in a big God
It’s to have that simplicity,
And a childlike faith that is strong and robust
Where answered prayers we see.
A little faith goes a long way
When we recognise His voice,
Since there’s a surety combined with peace
When we make the correct choice.
David used a pebble
But His faith was huge indeed,
And He trusted in God to defeat Goliath
And a miracle He did see.
Gideon won the battle
With a small percentage of faithful men,
But it was God who interceded
When Gideon’s tribe He did defend.
By faith Noah built the ark
And was ridiculed indeed,
But had a steadfast hope that dwelled within
When to God’s warning did take heed.
Sarah’s faith was minuscule
That she could conceive at her ripe age,
But when Almighty’s hand blessed Abraham
God’s glory took the stage.
Because it’s the strength and the power
Of our Almighty and Most High,
That will deliver us and rescue
When in His love we do abide.
