Redeem

Psalm 130
(paraphrased)
Out of the depths I cry
Hear my voice Adonai
For mercy I cry
Hear and attend Adonai
With a record of sin
No one could ever win
Before God who could stand
There’d be no one in the land
But God does forgive
Enables us to live
God’s Word is clear
It is God we must fear
On the Lord I wait
He is never late
In His Word is hope
Enables one to cope
It is the soul
God can make whole
Put your hope in the Lord
Do this now in one accord
With Adonai is unfailing love
Full redemption from above
He will redeem from sin
And cleanse deep within

Cry

The cry of my heart
I need a brand new start
Nothing else can I afford
I need You more Lord
~~~
The Lord heard my cry
Mighty and kind is Adonai
He pulled me out of strife
He came and saved my life
~~~
Even though the way is hard
The Lord is front and rear guard
All I need now is to trust
Almighty God is righteous & just
~~~
No longer will I be forlorn
Nor will I wallow and mourn
I now have a brand new start
God heard the cry of my heart

Lead

Oh God, hear my cry
It is on You I rely
Listen to my prayer
I know that You care
I call out to You
You are the only One who
Can lead me to the Rock
(I am part of the flock)
The Rock is higher than I
I call to You Adonai
You have been my refuge
Your protection is huge
A strong tower against my foe
Safety is in You, this I know
I long to dwell with You forever
Be apart from You never
There is shelter under Your wings
Peace and safety it brings
My vows You have heard
And listened to my every word
I will forever fear Your Name
And give You glory, honor, fame

Rest * Heb. 4:1-7

Hebrews 4:1-7

Harden not your hearts.

We can enter His rest. Yes, we are able. God’s Word says so. God’s rest – His peace is available to us. All we have to do is choose it. His rest is for the taking – rest from strife, rest from worry and fear, rest from our trials and tribulations, etc. We have available to us the help we need to go through life. All we have to do is choose it and then walk in confidence – in faith – that God does do what His Word says.

Jesus said, “Come all you who are heavy laden and I will give you rest.” It is as simple as that. Just come to Him and He will give you rest; rest to your soul, rest for your mind, peace in your heart. As the song says, “Turn your eyes upon Jesus. Look full into His wonderful face and the things on earth will grow strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace.”
~~~
Lord Jesus, we need You. We come to You. As the Word says, and we ask You, Lord give us rest from those things that are troubling and burdensome. We come to you so You can give us rest and lead us beside the peaceful, quiet waters. You are the only One who can restore each soul. Increase our faith and trust in You and Your Word. We thank You for making rest available to anyone who wants it. We thank you that all we have to do is ask You and You will help us. Your grace and mercy are astounding. Pour out Your grace and mercy on us – we need You. Soften our hearts to receive the truth. May the truth push out all lies and every false way in us. Fill us to over flow in the truth and empower our feet to walk in it. Bring us into a deeper relationship with You. Thank you for all You do. Amen.
