God of Jacob 4 (Psalm 46:7 & 11)


the psalmist calls You
"The All-Mighty God"
in one breath
with the next, he installs
You as
"The God of Jacob."

You rule the cosmos
You find the liars & cheats
go head-to-head with them
they beg You for
a grace
a mercy
a blessing.

we are all liars & cheats
whenever we think
our plans are best...
we all need
some time wrestling with You
so we
can lose...
so we
can beg You to bless us...
so You
can leave us a reminder
of just Who
won the fight!

You did!
You won the fight
to bless us...
You won the fight
to save us...
