Psalm 61: 1-2 says From the end of the earth will I cry unto Thee when my heart is overwhelmed, lead me to the Rock that is higher than I.
The other day I woke up with these words “Lead me to the Rock”. I then went for my early morning walk and meditated on those words. When I got back from my walk I googled those words and the above scripture came up and I also thought it was a song and low and behold it is.
Over the last few years there have been many times I have felt overwhelmed. And I also know that there are many of my friends worldwide who have been and still are going through countless overwhelming trials. In times of trial we have the choice – will we choose to fix our eyes on Jesus or on the trial.
Though we may not always understand, we can confidently assert what 2 Corinthians 1:9-10 says.We will not rely on ourselves but on Christ who raised the dead. For He has, He will and He will continue to deliver us.” Friends, If you are in the middle of feeling overwhelmed, there is hope for you today – your deliverance is coming – and it comes when you anchor your feet on the rock that is higher than your circumstance and higher than your earthly perspective.
Here are the words to the song, let those words wash over you. you can also listen to it on YouTube.
VERSE 1 Let me not be overwhelmed by the sorrow When uncertainty is knocking on my door I will fix my eyes on Jesus this life’s author Whose faithfulness has followed all the way
VERSE 2Teach my heart to trust the heart of heaven With the things that my mind can’t understand I will remember that my God always delivers I will rest in the safety of His hand
CHORUSLead me to a rock higher than I An anchor for my soul in every trial The presence that surrounds me The love that never fades Jesus be my rock, my source of strength
VERSE 3Jesus lead me towards the promise of tomorrow May your spirit lead and guide me day by day May I know, within the trial, you are still sovereign I will choose to follow you all of the way.
