Christian, seek not yet repose

Christian, seek not yet repose,
Hear thy gracious Savior say;
Thou art in the midst of foes:
  Watch and pray.
Principalities and powers,
Mustering their unseen array,
Wait for thy unguarded hours:
  Watch and pray.
Gird thy heavenly armor on,
Wear it ever night and day;
Ambushed lies the evil one:
  Watch and pray.
Hear the victors who o’ercame,
Still they mark each warrior’s way;
All with one sweet voice exclaim,
  Watch and pray.
Hear, above all, hear thy Lord,
Him thou lovest to obey;
Hide within thy heart His word:
  Watch and pray.
Watch, as if on that alone
Hung the issue of the day;
Pray, that help may be sent down:
  Watch and pray.

Just woke up with this song, I reached out to my phone to sing and meditate on the lyrics. I know God is saying very deep things, I/We need to watch and pray because enemy is like a roaring lion seeking who it may devour.

Thanking You Lord Almighty for Your love and faithfulness. Please keep me under Your shadows. Please don't let any evil befall me in Jesus Name Amen.

(i remember Jesus told his disciples to come apart and rest) 👏🏻Us, too, as saints of the most high God! Hallelujah, Praise Jehovah!!

Please know the saints of the most high God are indeed praying without ceasing, praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; and he that searcheth the hearts … maketh intercession for the saints according [to the will of] God

Likewise…the Spirit ’itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. All this is soo comforting to me and I know for the saints of the most high God (i let this simple tune loop forever- I do fancy a heavenly chorus with trumpeters, so to speak)

Happily and humbly, I submit; in Jesus’s name, bc; i’m saved and sanctified the Bible way, he’s my elder brother and his Father is my Father!

After when we’ve done all commanded things us, say that we are unprofitable servants: we’ve done that which was our duty to do (see saintLuke17. 10) 9mar23, thur. ~sisteregina k

May Our LORD God help me to obey Him, and to hide His Word in my heart, as I watch and pray as if that alone hungs my issues of the day.

Glory to Our LORD God for blessing us with this song. In Jesus' Mighty name. AMEN.

Watch, as if on that alone

Hung the issue of the day;

Great Soul lifter. I enjoy every single word of this wonderful song.

It reminds me of my secondary school days and how important we should be watching and praying as Christians.

God bless the composer.
