The Lifter

 

I am the lifter
of your head

My kindness
you’ll be shown

as you sit before Me
all your days

and My provision
is made known.

You establish Your kindness to me.

“Now it came to pass in the thirty-seventh year of the captivity of Jehoiachin king of Judah, in the twelfth month, on the twenty fifth day of the month, that Evil-Merodach king of Babylon, in the first year of his reign, lifted up the head of Jehoiachin king of Judah and brought him out of prison. And he spoke kindly to him and gave him a more prominent seat than those of the kings who were with him in Babylon. So Jehoiachin changed from his prison garments, and he ate bread regularly before the king all the days of his life. And as for his provisions, there was a regular ration given him by the king of Babylon, a portion for each day until the day of his death, all the days of his life.” Jeremiah 52:31,32,33,34 NKJV

completely

and to fear
put an end.

You establish Your voice to me.

The LORD our God has not sent you to say, ‘Do not go to Egypt to sojourn there!’ “. Jeremiah 43:1,2 NKJV
