The Divine Exchange

“Jesus comes not for the super-spiritual but for the wobbly
and the weak-kneed who know they don’t have it all together,
and who are not too proud to accept the handout of
amazing grace.” ― Brennan Manning

My God will supply every need of yours
according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4 v 19
I shelter under the shadow of Jesus’ wings
and trust in His merits.
It is because He knows my neediness and the poverty of my own
goodness, that He went through the agony of the cross for me.
I need not be surprised at the inability of my own
wisdom and strength to cope with the events of my day.
Instead, may my insufficiency lead me again to the foot of
the cross, and there exchange my poverty for the vast riches
which Jesus have provided for me.
I call on Him to restore, and bless and renew.
He takes my brokenness in His nail scarred hands and makes
me whole.
