Song Lyrics and Exhortation
“Let’s be seated in His presence this morning. Let’s just allow God to love on us. People came here this morning with burdens too heavy for them to bear. People came this morning with weights too great for them to carry. That’s why we need a Saviour.
Jesus said, “Take my yoke upon you, my yoke is easy.”
The burdens the church has put on people in the past have been anything but light, and anything but easy to bear. But the yoke Jesus puts on us, is one that fits. No striving, there’s just a rest.
Basically He’s just saying, “Team up with Me. Just let Me handle the things you can’t handle, and the things you can’t change about yourself. Did you really think you were going to change yourself? If you could have done that, you would have done it by now. So even those things that are imperfect about you, that’s My problem really! Don’t you think I knew that? From the beginning I was slain. The law only came to show man his desperate, desperate need for grace.”
So love me (x4)
Let me be me
I believe and I receive (x2)

The above exhortation and prophetic song came at the end of a Sunday morning worship service at Pursuit. I have left the transcription completely intact because the song lyrics and exhortation weave in and out of each other as part of a spontaneous flow.
As the song developed I became aware of a flow of revelation concerning the Father’s heart of love for us and how gracious He is in allowing us to grow in this love, and not demanding of us what we have not yet become. The following study on growing in love explains this a little more:
If you love Me, keep My commandments.
