Your Name Is Worthy

He is with me fighting all my battles
He is with me calming every storm
He is with me in the midst of danger
He is with me when I feel alone

Oh my God how great is your name
Lifted high above all else
Oh my God your name is worthy
To be raised.  To be praised

Jesus, mighty Savior
Jesus Lamb of God
Bore my sin a failures
On the cross.  On the cross

He is with me when I bow before Him
He is with me when I cry in prayer
He is with me when my hands are lifted
He is with me when I give my praise

Oh my God how great is your name
Lifted high above all else
Oh my God your name is worthy
To be raised. To be praised

Jesus, My redeemer
Rose up from the grave
Coming back in all His glory
All of heaven praise His name

I never have to wonder where Jesus is.  I never have to worry is He will  hear my cry.  I never have to worry if He will come and rescue me from the storms and trials of life.  He is always ready, willing and able to help me in any situation.  When I cry out to Him, He always hears me and He will always answer. It may not be the answer I am looking for, but it will be the best answer for my situation.  When I am weary, He may tell me to praise Him.  When I am in financial trouble, He may tell me to give.  When I need help, He may tell me to help my neighbor.  When storms come He may tell me to run into them, not away from them. He always knows what is best for me, for He is the one who formed me in my mother’s womb.  He knows everything about me and every thought I have.  He is never caught by surprise when I turn away from Him and He always knows what it will take to bring me back. He is always merciful always patient, always kind.  What an awesome God we serve!

Jeremiah 33:3 King James Version (KJV)
Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

I’m Tired

I’m tired of waiting. Waiting for you
For you to come through in this hour

I’m tired of hoping. Hoping that you.
Will carry me through with your power

Lord, I need you now. I don’t know how I can go on in this life
Lord, I need you now. Come set me free with your hand of mercy

I’m tired of watching the waves rolling in
The struggle within growing stronger

Then suddenly I hear your voice
You say to me my child rejoice
Your prayer has been heard in heaven
My mercy and my grace is here
There is no longer need to fear
The answer to your prayer is given

Lord, I thank you now. I don’t know how I could have doubted your love
Lord, I thank you now. With all my heart I lift my voice to praise you
With all my heart I lift my voice to praise you
With all my heart I lift my voice to praise you

There are often times when we get anxious about our prayers. We wonder if God has heard us. We wonder if God will answer our request. We wonder why He is taking so long to let us know His decision. We are not alone in this anxiety. Fourteen times in the Psalms David asks the Lord “How long?”. Job asked this of the Lord 7 times. I would say we are in good company when we ask how long, Lord. Daniel waited 21 days for an answer. Abraham waited seventeen years for an heir. The children of Israel waited 40 years before they entered the promised land and seventy years they toiled in exile before their prayers of deliverance were answered.

Take heart. God does hear your prayers. He will most assuredly answer them in His time and in His way because He loves you

Jeremiah 33:3 King James Version (KJV)
3 Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.
