Child of weakness, watch Me and be changed

“I hear the Savior say,
Thy strength indeed is small,
child of weakness
Watch and Pray-
find in Me – thine all in all.”

“I hear the Savior say,…”

What is it that I hear the Savior say today?

Through the years, words I have memorized:

“I will never leave you or forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5.

“I am the Lord… (You are ) precious in my sight… and I have loved you.” Is. 43:3,4.

I also hear exhortations speak to me,

“Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you. Ephesians 5:14.

Child of weakness, watch and pray.  Find in Me, thine all in all.

Voices in my heart, “You don’t have what it takes.”

“Give up now. You  don’t . . . have . . .”

This is a fight for my heart and my mind. To know what’s true and what’s a devil’s lie.

I can’t see anything at all. But I will sing the old words.

” . . . Thy strength indeed is small, child of weakness watch and pray. Find in Me, thine all in all.

Hear Me, God draws me near. Hear Me, listen, now.  Today.

I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving -kindness.

I will build you up again and you will be rebuilt, O Virgin Israel.

Again you will take up your tambourines and go out to dance with the joyful . . .

Come, let us go up to Zion to the LORD our God.” Jeremiah 31:3,4.

“Jesus paid it all!
All to Him I owe.
Sin had left a crimson stain – He washed it white as snow!”

I hear my Comforter minister to me with thoughts of peace, and rest, and truth. This is hope. I can hear Him say, . . .

With hope, you will not be ashamed in My name. Your enemy desires that you lose hope.

Hope in Me, I am your God, and I with you.

Let My rod and My staff comfort you my dear lamb.

I have laid down My life for the sheep.

I am Jesus. Call Me by name, and I will answer you. I have prayed for you.”

So I choose. I will sing. These words are mine. I will sing and rejoice, for He, the Lord God Almighty, is mine:

“Lord, now indeed I find, Thy power and Thine alone, can change a lepers heart and melt a heart of stone.”

“Jesus paid it all,
All to Him I owe.
Sin had left a crimson stain
He Washed it White as Snow!”

I pray to my God who is Life everlasting. Let me be abounding in Spirit.Give me a deep, solid joy. If you abide and dwell in praise and thankfulness, let me take a breath and rest in Your holiness.

“And now before the Throne, I stand in Him completeJesus died my soul to save, my lips shall still repeat,

“Jesus paid it all,
All to Him I owe.
Sin had left a crimson stain
He Washed it White as Snow.
