Although the lyrics to this song are simple, the inspiration is profound.
God has rescued me. From myself.
If God, in His mercy and Love, had not come to me, I would still be a prisoner to that shallow existence that is passed off as life, and would never have entered into the riches of His Grace.
The constrains of self are a bondage and poverty that Jesus has come to release us from. To be delivered from this bondage and released into sonship is a Truth that was not easily provided. It cost God the life of His beloved Son.
“He reached down from on high and took hold of me; He drew me out of deep waters. He rescued me from my powerful enemy, From my foes, who were too strong for me.” (Psalm 18:16-17)
This song came as an outpouring of thanksgiving for all of the blessing that has come, and is to come, because of the love of God to us in Christ Jesus. For God so loved the world.
