Give thanks with a grateful heart
Give thanks unto the Holy One
Give thanks because He's given Jesus Christ, His Son
And now let the weak say, "I am strong"
Let the poor say, "I am rich
Because of what the Lord has done for us"
This song is not hard to understand. It's easy to remember the lyrics. It's soothing to my soul.
He's given Jesus Christ, His Son...
Romans 8:32 "He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things?" God did the most unimaginably difficult thing ever in the entire Universe. Because of that, I am the beneficiary of ALL THINGS for now, and eternity. I'm given EVERYTHING I need to LIVE and live OBEDIENTLY. (2 Peter 1:3)
Let the weak say I am strong...
2 Corinthians 12:9 "And He has said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.' Most gladly therefore I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me." I have nothing to bring to the table. No strength, no resources, no character, BUT because of GRACE, I have the Holy Spirit inside me giving me the strength to do what He calls me to do.
Let the poor say I am rich...
2 Corinthians 8:9 "For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sake He became poor, so that you through His poverty might become rich."
Rich with Ephesians 1 riches! Jesus set it all ASIDE so that He could share it with ME!
