When the Rent is Due

When the Rent is Due

When the days are long and the money is short
Hidden in there is a wondrous praise report
Rely upon the Lord, His promises are true
He alone can pay, when the rent is due

When the bills are great and the collector calls
When financial burden pour like a waterfall
And the landlord comes chasing after you
He alone can pay, when the rent is due

A mountain of sin, piling up from here and there
The tremendous burden is more than you can bear
Added up one by one, such a great debt accrued
He alone can pay, when the rent is due

The debt paid in full upon the hill of Calvary
The price covered by outstretched arms on the tree
Your sins tallied, the cost too much for you
He alone can pay, when the rent is due

The price is paid your debt is clear
He is the One who will wipe your tears
If your debts are financial or spiritual it holds true
He alone can pay, when the rent is due


Brothers and Sisters,

Jehovah Jira, My Provider. I still have trouble thinking outside of my physical needs when I hear that name. I know God is my provider. He meets all my needs. I guess it is my flesh that leads me to think only in the flesh. God provides for my spiritual needs as well. Sometimes in life there is a real landlord who calls for your rent. But there are those times when you feel that your spiritual rent is due. It is good to know that the price has already been paid…now and forever.

God bless.

Keep serving,
Christian

I love this. Such truth, and the imagery and meter are great. Wonderful message we all need to be reminded of.

Even when we cannot fathom how it can be done, we can surely rest and trust in Him to provide our every need for He is a keeper of promises and will not deny Himself in spite of ourselves. Good to hear from you again, Christian. Keep trusting and keep loving our blessed Jesus!
