Mike & Gina Yancey- I'll Live For Him

yancey

 

He is Everything to Me:

What would you have if you lost everything on the outside?
Job held to his God when he lost possessions, children, his wife’s support, his friend’s confidence.
His response? Pain, confusion, soul-searching, and finally trust: “I cannot see Him, but He knows the way I take and when I am tried I shall come forth as gold…”
A hymn was written after two major traumas in Spafford’s life. The first was the great Chicago Fire of October 1871, which ruined him financially (he had been a wealthy businessman). Shortly after, while crossing the Atlantic, all four of Spafford’s daughters died in a collision with another ship. Spafford’s wife Anna survived and sent him the now famous telegram, “Saved alone.” Several weeks later, as Spafford’s own ship passed near the spot where his daughters died, the Holy Spirit inspired these words.
When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul.

My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!
(my sin would be any attachment, inordinate desire for the things of this world)

For me, be it Christ, be it Christ hence to live:
If Jordan above me shall roll,
No pang shall be mine, for in death as in life
Thou wilt whisper Thy peace to my soul.
  
And Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight,
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;
The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend,
Even so, it is well with my soul.

It is well, with my soul,
It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.
This man had the Pearl of Great Price, something the Devil couldn’t take away. What do you have? Would you be willing to give up everything to follow Christ? Would you be able to suffer the loss of everything and still know that you have the most precious thing, God inside, and God forever? If you are a Christian, a surrendered believer, you can lose everything and still be rich. – Pastor, Mike Yancey

– God bless, Pastor Mike
