519 You Should Seek to Love God in Your Belief

Verse 1

God’s use of you is more than

refining or having you suffer.

It lets you know life’s meaning and God’s deeds,

that serving God is not easy.

To experience God’s work is not just to

enjoy His grace but to suffer for loving Him.

Experience all sides: His grace and His chastisement,

His enlightenment and His judgment.

Pre-chorus

God’s servants should not

only know how to suffer for His sake,

but that their belief in Him

is so they will seek to love Him.

Chorus

Belief in God is for the sake of satisfying Him,

and for living out the disposition He requires.

Thus His actions and His glory will be manifested

through these unworthy ones.

That’s the right perspective on faith in Him,

and the true goal you should seek.

Verse 2

God has judged, chastised you.

His words have dealt with you, but also shined light on you.

When you want to run away, God’s hand tugs at you.

All is so you know man’s at God’s mercy.

You may think faith in God is about suffering,

working for Him, or for all things to go well,

but none of these should be the aim in your belief.

If they are, this is wrong, you’ll never be perfected.

Pre-chorus

God’s servants should not

only know how to suffer for His sake,

but that their belief in Him

is so they will seek to love Him.

Chorus

Belief in God is for the sake of satisfying Him,

and for living out the disposition He requires.

Thus His actions and His glory will be manifested

through these unworthy ones.

That’s the right perspective on faith in Him,

and the true goal you should seek.

Bridge

God’s actions, God’s righteous disposition,

God’s wisdom and His words,

His wondrousness, His unfathomableness,

are all things people must understand.

Use this knowledge to remove

your own requests, hopes and notions,

then you will meet the conditions demanded by God.

Only through this can you have life.

Only through this can you satisfy God.

Chorus

Belief in God is for the sake of satisfying Him,

and for living out the disposition He requires.

Thus His actions and His glory will be manifested

through these unworthy ones.

That’s the right perspective on faith in Him,

and the true goal you should seek.
