I harden whom I harden
And I soften whom I soften.
I hardened the heart of Pharaoh
That more miracles might be seen;
And you yourselves can harden your hearts
To the things you don’t want to see,
To the things you don’t want to hear,
And to the things you don’t want to do.
Yet I am bringing my people to the place
Where they must recognize
There have to be changes made in their lives,
In their thinking and in their ways
For my plans and purposes to be accomplished
In the world today.
There are strategies I have for you
That you are to learn from me.
There are methods and examples from those who have learnt
But that has been my way for them in different circumstances.
Know that I am preparing hearts of people all around you –
All those you are to influence and bring to know me.
You will know the strategies I have for you
When you spend that extra time with me.
My ways are “past finding out”
Unless I share them with you.
Line upon line and precept upon precept
I will guide and direct you.
It is not by might nor by power
But by my Spirit says the Lord.
