Strength, Song and Deliverance!
Verse for Today: Sunday, November 03, 2013
Psalms 118:14 – The Lord is my strength and my song; He has become my salvation.
When our strength waxes and wanes away, we need an anchor to hold on to. When we shed tears, we need a sweet song to help us forget our sorrows. But the world is unable to provide us with such a bulwark to hold on to. Our weaknesses are taken advantages of by the world by giving us ineffective support systems which make us slaves to it. We thus lose our freedom and independence. The world’s entertainments prove to be hollow and do not impact us a bit. The temporary solace that we get for our heart aches, pain and misery bind us to it and never deliver us from its clutches. Man thus becomes a puppet in the hands of the artificial, and masquerades to show joy. Every support system that the world offers makes man to pay for it from his pocket. Every song that he listens to makes man to pay for it from his pocket or with his precious time. Yet it doesn’t give man strength nor does it take away his misery. But God comes to man to give him strength to weather away the storms in life. God’s power comes to man through His Spirit, the greatest powerhouse in this universe. When God gives man a soothing and healing song in the darkest hours of his lonely night, it gives him strength to face his unknown tomorrows with courage and confidence. But for God to come into our lives, we must invite Jesus Christ into our hearts as our Savior and Lord. When we surrender our lives and concerns to God, His Spirit will empower us to face the rough patches of life with confidence and faith. His Spirit who dwells in our hearts will give us songs for our souls which give us consolation, courage and hope to face the future. God comes to offer us His salvation and deliverance from all our situations and gives us the power to sing even in the most difficult situations.
Dear friend, are you weak and tired of the battles in your life? Is your energy drained away because of the way the storms in life beat against you day after day? Are you grieved about your situation from which you find it difficult to get out? Today God comes to you to give you strength to face your situation with courage and confidence. He will fill your heart with His message of strength and comfort. His Spirit will enable you to sing songs of victory and hope in the lonely hours of the night and help you to find deliverance from the emotional strain that you have been experiencing. He will fill you with His Spirit and will enable you to put all your faith in God. The Spirit of God will empower you to respond positively as you face difficulties. Your sorrow will turn to joy and your disappointment will turn to hope. Your life will be one of renewed strength day by day as you are prepared by God to face your emerging situations. The songs which He gives you will comfort you and help you to minister to those who go through rough times in their lives. Joseph, Elijah and Daniel experienced such power from God when they went through shattering circumstances. They allowed God’s Spirit to control their hearts and emotions and so were able to experience the calmness and composure that the Spirit gave them in the midst of most trying times. Today God’s strength is available to us in the right measure according to our situations and needs to weather away the storms that come our way.
Psalms 40:3 – He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God.
