” STRENGTH “

thCA2BOX49u

For those who love what is right they find their strength in the Lord, and know what is acceptable when speaking in their faith. It is not so though for anyone who chooses wickedness over righteousness. (Proverbs 10:29-32). The way of the Lord is strength to the upright: but destruction shall be to the workers of iniquity. The righteous shall never be removed: but the wicked shall not inhabit the earth. The mouth of the just bringeth forth wisdom: but the froward tongue shall be cut out. The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable: but the mouth of the wicked speaketh frowardness.

 

 

Oh how Moses and the Israelites sang unto the Lord when they saw the Egyptians overtaken by the sea they had just crossed upon dry land, for they knew it was not by their strength but by the Lord did they triumph over their enemy! (Exodus 15:1-6)  Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the Lord, and spake, saying, I will sing unto the Lord, for he hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea.The Lord is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father’s God, and I will exalt him. The Lord is a man of war: the Lord is his name. Pharaoh’s chariots and his host hath he cast into the sea: his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red sea. The depths have covered them: they sank into the bottom as a stone.Thy right hand, O Lord, is become glorious in power: thy right hand, O Lord, hath dashed in pieces the enemy…… (Psalm 118:14-17).

 

When our Lord was at the Mount of Olives He told the disciples to pray that they enter not into temptation, then He proceeded to pray to the Father and an angel appeared from heaven and strengthened Him. What torment our Lord was in as He prayed that day with such agony His sweat fell as great drops of blood! (Luke 22:39-44).

 

In our deepest darkest times of life God always allows us to know we are not alone, He is ever close and we draw strength by reading of the Holy word He has given us.
