GW

This week I have been dwelling on God’s generosity. He has been generous to me in so many ways: in providing me with Jesus, my Lord and my salvation; in giving me my sweetheart of a husband and loving family; in my church and in my home; in my job and finances; in His Word and the Holy Spirit; in the rocks that cry out; the list goes on and on.

In all of God’s generosity and the good gifts that He has given me, I need to remember to worship the Giver of the gifts and not the gifts themselves. I need to remember that amongst the many blessings that He has so lovingly given to me to steward, my soul is (and can only be) satisfied in HIM alone.

The hymn below is written my The Gettys and is titled, My Worth is Not in What I Own. Please follow this link to hear how beautifully it has been put to music. And see the lyrics below to encourage your soul. Your worth is fixed and your ransom is paid – at the cross! AMEN! He has been generous indeed!

My Worth is Not in What I Own

My worth is not in what I own
Not in the strength of flesh and bone
But in the costly wounds of love
At the cross

My worth is not in skill or name
In win or lose, in pride or shame
But in the blood of Christ that flowed
At the cross

I rejoice in my Redeemer
Greatest Treasure,
Wellspring of my soul
I will trust in Him, no other.
My soul is satisfied in Him alone.

As summer flowers we fade and die
Fame, youth and beauty hurry by
But life eternal calls to us
At the cross

I will not boast in wealth or might
Or human wisdom’s fleeting light
But I will boast in knowing Christ
At the cross

I rejoice in my Redeemer
Greatest Treasure,
Wellspring of my soul
I will trust in Him, no other.
My soul is satisfied in Him alone.

Two wonders here that I confess
My worth and my unworthiness
My value fixed – my ransom paid
At the cross

Isaiah 53:11 – “Out of the anguish of his soul he shall see and be satisfied; by his knowledge shall the righteous one, my servant, make many to be accounted righteous, and he shall bear their iniquities.”
