Jesus Took My Burden and Left me With a Song
Jesus Took My Burden
When I, a poor lost sinner, before the Lord did fall,
And in the name of Jesus for pardon loud did call.
He heard my supplication, and soon the weak was strong;
For Jesus took my burden and left with me a song.
Oft-times the way is dreary and rugged seems the road.
Oft-times I'm weak and weary when bent beneath some load.
But when I cry in weakness, “how long, O Lord, how long”?
Then Jesus takes the burden and leaves me with a song.
Yes, Jesus took my burden I could no longer bear;
Yes, Jesus took my burden in answer to my prayer.
My anxious fears subsided; my spirit was made strong,
For Jesus took my burden and left me with a song.
When I was crushed with sorrow, I bowed in deep despair;
My load of grief and heartache seemed more than I could bear.
Twas then I heard a whisper, “you to the Lord belong”,
Then Jesus took my burden and left me with a song.
I'll trust Him for the future. He knoweth all the way;
For with His eye He'll guide me along life's pilgrim way;
And I will tell in heaven while ages roll along,
How Jesus took my burden and left me with a song.

"When your enemy presses in hard do not fear
The battle belongs to the Lord
Take courage my friend, your redemption is near
The battle belongs to the Lord!!!!! "
Through the mighty Name of Jesus we can receive all the blessings of GOD, through the mighty Name of Jesus we have access to the throne room of GOD. Jesus Christ loved us so much, He gave His life to free us, will He not also hear our cries?. come to Him believing in His power to meet our needs. Jesus Christ will never fail us, He is the answer to the cry of humanity.
"14 He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit."Galatians 3
The battle belongs to the Lord - 2Chro 20:15
When faced with a problem or challenge, we tend to ask ourselves, “What am I going to do?” And well-meaning family members and friends will come along and ask, “What are you going to do?”Jehoshaphat faced a multitude of enemies. But instead of focusing on what he would do, he prayed, “O our God, will You not judge them? For we have no power against this great multitude that is coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are upon You.”
(2 Chronicles 20:12) When we turn our eyes to God, we will hear Him say, “Do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this great
multitude, for the battle is not yours, but God’s… You will not need to fight in this battle. Position yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord…” (2 Chronicles 20:15, 17) But standing still is the last thing we
want to do when the enemy is coming against us. It is also the most difficult thing to do because we feel that we cannot just stand around and do nothing — we must try to save the situation.
But God wants us to stand still and see Jesus our salvation fight for us.So what do you do the next time you are faced with a battle and don’t know what to do? Jehoshaphat sent his singers to the front of the army to proclaim, “Praise the Lord, for His mercy endures forever.” (2 Chronicles 20:21) Some people will wonder, “Does that mean that I just sing and don’t do anything else when I have a problem?” No, that is not what I am saying.
Do what the situation requires, but don’t worry and don’t trust in what you do. Like Jehoshaphat, rest and trust in His mercy that endures forever. When you do that, God will turn your battlefield into the Valley of Berachah. Berachah means “blessings”. The children of Israel gave the battlefield this name because it took them three days to gather all the spoils of war! God turned their situation into a great blessing!
(2 Chronicles 20:25–26) Do you have a battle to fight? Stand still
and see the salvation of the Lord!
