Beloved, wow! Glory to be God! I want to ask you a question, who has the final say in your life and situation? Another question I will like you to consider and also answer is “whose report will you believe? Don’t give me a head knowledge answer. Let your answer be thoughtful with proofs from the Word of God.
It is important you get these answers written down where you can easily access it in case you cannot memorize it off hand. Why am I sounding this way you may be surprise.
Often time things happen around us and we begin to imagine the unimaginable and begin to think that the World is coming to an end. We remember the promises you received and the present situation is not aligning with it and you get worried and depression is eminent.
We easily forget that God is not man (Num 23:19). His Word will never fail but must accomplish that which He has sent it to do (Isa 55:11). We forget that we serve a Mighty God. We forget that our God id fortress (Ps 91:2). We seem to forget that His promises are “Yea and Amen” (2Cor 1:20). He is a Shield and a Buckler (Ps 91:4; 35:2). He is a strong Tower (Prov 18:10, Ps 94:22; 62:2).
We forgot to confess that we shall live because He lives. Jesus is the Vine while I am the branch. So long as I am abiding; I will continue to prosper because it is written and what is written cannot be broken (Jn 15:4-7).
Be strengthen as you go through the teaching of the day. Lay hold on the promises of God and prosper. Remember beloved He that keepeth you neither slumber nor sleep. He watches over you and will not fail because He had promised.
Let go on:
“Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.” Ps. 121:4
Jehovah is “the Keeper of Israel.” No form of unconsciousness ever steals over Him, neither the deeper slumber nor the slighter sleep. He never fails to watch the house and the heart of His people. This is a sufficient reason for our resting in perfect peace. Alexander said that he slept because his friend Parmenio watched; much more may we sleep because our God is our guard.
“Behold” is here set up to call our attention to the cheering truth. Israel, when he had a stone for his pillow, fell asleep; but his God was awake, and came in vision to His servant. When we lie defenseless, Jehovah Himself will cover our head.
The Lord keeps His people as a rich man keeps his treasure, as a captain keeps a city with a garrison, as a sentry keeps watch over his sovereign. None can harm those who are in such keeping. Let me put my soul into His dear hands. He never forgets us, never ceases actively to care for us, never finds Himself unable to preserve us.
O my Lord, keep me, lest I wander and fall and perish. Keep me, that I may keep thy commandments. By thine unslumbering care prevent my sleeping like the sluggard, and perishing like those who sleep the sleep of death.
If that is also your prayer, join us as we run into the God our refuge:
“The eternal God is thy refuge.” Deuteronomy 33:27
The word refuge may be translated “mansion,” or “abiding- place,” which gives the thought that God is our abode, our home. There is a fulness and sweetness in the metaphor, for dear to our hearts is our home, although it be the humblest cottage, or the scantiest garret; and dearer far is our blessed God, in whom we live, and move, and have our being.
It is at home that we feel safe: we shut the world out and dwell in quiet security. So when we are with our God we “fear no evil.” He is our shelter and retreat, our abiding refuge. At home, we take our rest; it is there we find repose after the fatigue and toil of the day. And so our hearts find rest in God, when, wearied with life’s conflict, we turn to Him, and our soul dwells at ease.
At home, also, we let our hearts loose; we are not afraid of being misunderstood, nor of our words being misconstrued. So when we are with God we can commune freely with Him, laying open all our hidden desires; for if the “secret of the Lord is with them that fear Him,” the secrets of them that fear Him ought to be, and must be, with their Lord.
Home, too, is the place of our truest and purest happiness: and it is in God that our hearts find their deepest delight. We have joy in Him which far surpasses all other joy. It is also for home that we work and labour. The thought of it gives strength to bear the daily burden, and quickens the fingers to perform the task; and in this sense we may also say that God is our home. Love to Him strengthens us.
We think of Him in the person of His dear Son; and a glimpse of the suffering face of the Redeemer constrains us to labour in His cause. We feel that we must work, for we have brethren yet to be saved, and we have our Father’s heart to make glad by bringing home His wandering sons; we would fill with holy mirth the sacred family among whom we dwell. Happy are those who have thus the God of Jacob for their refuge!
Beloved, the Lord is good to you. Draw from the fountain of life and live. He is faithful and gracious and will not let our foot be hurt because we declared that we love Him. Our God will send His angels to watch over you and keep you in all your ways. Do you know that even when you tread upon the Lion and adder under your feet. He will answer you when you call and will be with you in trouble. He will deliver you and honour you and will long life He will satisfy you.
This week is declare blessed in the Name of the Lord. Go and do exploits in the name that is above every other Name and return with testimonies by the end of the week in Jesus Name.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
