Day 20: When Fighting Unbelief

Indelible Grace Music has retuned an old Isaac Watts hymn. We’ll be singing it at Karis tomorrow morning. I love when a song can be sung as a cry from the heart to the Lord.

This is just a sampling of the lyrics, some of my favorite lines.  The lyrics seem to range from every high and low:  from obedience, to unbelief, to acknowledging unworthiness, to hearing the call and, finally, to answering with ringing confidence in Christ. Whew! Powerful words, Mr. Watts.

My soul obeys the almighty call,
And runs to this relief;
I would believe Thy promise, Lord,
Oh, help my unbelief!

A guilty, weak, and helpless worm,
On Thy kind arms I fall;
Be Thou my strength and righteousness,
My Jesus, and my all.

But there’s a voice of sovereign grace
Sounds from the sacred Word,
“Oh, ye despairing sinners, come,
And trust upon the Lord.

If you’re battling doubt or unbelief, cry this out to the Lord.

Today is Day 20 of 31 Days of Prayer for the Hurting.
