When It’s All Been Said And Done – Now Think On This by Steve Martin

When It’s All Been Said And Done
Now Think On This
Steve Martin
“And He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings;
He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding.”
(Daniel 2:21, NKJV)
Don Moen, a worship leader whom I greatly appreciate for his songs of love and adoration, wrote beautiful words for one particular message in 2004, entitled “When It’s All Been Said And Done” (Integrity Music). It had been awhile since I sang the song in my head, but today I did.
The past few days have been ones to contemplate on the goodness of the Lord Jesus, and to try and realize even more just what the Lord has done. It is good to contemplate on the truth that when it is all said and done, He is the life worth living for.
When it’s all been said and done
There is just one thing that matters
Did I do my best to live for truth?
Did I live my life for you?

When it’s all been said and done
All my treasures will mean nothing
Only what I’ve done
For love’s reward
Will stand the test of time

Lord, your mercy is so great
That you look beyond our weakness
And find purest gold in miry clay
Turning sinners into saints

I will always sing your praise
Here on earth and ever after
For you’ve shown me heaven’s my true home
When it’s all been said and done
You’re my life when life is gone…

(2004 Integrity Music Thank You Lord album)

In America, we sense a new day has come upon our land. A refreshing and merciful wind of change, bringing national leadership in our federal government that will call upon the Name of the Lord, is here. Even on January 20, 2017, as he gave his inaugural address, President Donald Trump asked for the Lord’s protection, read from His eternal word, and had chosen several ministers, who during the ceremony, were not afraid to pray “In Jesus’ Name.” For this we are most grateful.
Those who have stood the past eight years and more for biblical truths, including those that declare that marriage is between a man and a woman; that sacred love extends towards those having new life yet in the womb; and for righteous laws that protect the freedom of Christians to speak – received renewed hope in the sovereignty of the Lord God Almighty. He had spoken from His heavenly throne, declaring His ongoing, active involvement in the lives of His people.
When all has been said and done, when the things of earth have passed away and the new heavens have come, we will more fully realize that what He has promised will come about; what He has spoken will be held true; and what He has decreed will be made known by all of mankind.
He alone places men and women in power to carry out His eternal plans.
Just as in the days of old, so too in our time we see His hand of protection and merciful guidance over those who call upon His name.
“Daniel answered and said:
“Blessed be the name of God forever and ever,
For wisdom and might are His.
And He changes the times and the seasons;
He removes kings and raises up kings;
He gives wisdom to the wise
And knowledge to those who have understanding.
He reveals deep and secret things;
He knows what is in the darkness,
And light dwells with Him.
“I thank You and praise You,
O God of my fathers;
You have given me wisdom and might,
And have now made known to me what we asked of You,
For You have made known to us the king’s demand.”
(Daniel 2:20-23, NKJV)
Now is the time to call upon the Name of the Lord, the everlasting God of Israel, to lead us in the way we are to go. Now even more is the call to stand firm upon His Word, speak His truth, and see our God rule and reign in our midst.
Thank you Jesus.
