Let the Living water flow over my soul, let the Holy Spirit come and take control of every situation that troubles my mind all my fears and worry unto Thee I come… You are the reason why we are singing, Jehovah You are the Most High God.

Eternal Father, here we are before Your Throne, we bow to worship You O Lord! Blessed Redeemer we thank You for the gift of another week, another day. We are grateful for persevering and upholding us least we fall by the wayside. Holy Spirit of God, we acknowledge Your presence in our daily living, thank You for guiding us through and through. Thank You for Your ever abiding Presence and defense over us.

Beloved, we are glad to still be able to connect with you to the glory of God. The plan of the Lord standeth sure and is for ever. The church of God will match on and the gate of hell shall not prevail against it. Thank God for sending help our way. To Him alone be all the Glory, honour, adoration forever and ever.

Have you ever experienced weakness such that you are help to do things ordinary you will have done for yourself? If you have, you will appreciate this topic better. The topic we have before us is no cheap one, strength indeed is a gift. Weakness is not what anyone desires, no matter how lazy you want to be, you still want to be fit. But when you are weak either due to ill health or any other situation, you will cherish good health and strength.

Is there any among us this day who is weak, may this prayer work for you. Receive strength from the Lord this hour and be renew again, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. I will enjoin you to read Psalms 29 and be strengthen in Jesus Name.

And afterward receive peace from the Lord. This is a season of goodwill and peace. Receive the peace of the Lord, Amen!

“The Lord will give strength unto his people; the Lord will bless his people with peace.” Ps. 29:11

David had just heard the voice of the Lord in a thunderstorm, and had seen His power in the hurricane whose path he had described; and now, in the cool calm after the storm, that overwhelming power by which Heaven and earth are shaken is promised to be the strength of the chosen.

He who wings the unerring bolt will give to His redeemed the wings of eagles; He who shakes the earth with His voice will terrify the enemies of His saints, and give His children peace. Why are we weak when we have divine strength to flee to? Why are we troubled when the Lord’s own peace is ours? Jesus, the mighty God, is our strength; let us put Him on and go forth to our service. Jesus, our blessed Lord, is also our peace; let us repose in Him this day, and end our fears. What a blessing to have Him for our strength and peace both now and for ever!

That same God who rides upon the storm in days of tempest will also rule the hurricane of our tribulation, and send us, before long, days of peace. We shall have strength for storms, and songs for fair weather. Let us begin to sing at once unto God our strength and our peace. Away, dark thoughts! Up, faith and hope!

Let us draw strength from the Lord daily for there is our security:    

“The conies are but a feeble folk, yet make they their houses in the rocks.” Proverbs 30:26

Conscious of their own natural defenselessness, the conies resort to burrows in the rocks, and are secure from their enemies. My heart, be willing to gather a lesson from these feeble folk. Thou art as weak and as exposed to peril as the timid cony, be as wise to seek a shelter.

My best security is within the munitions of an immutable Jehovah, where His unalterable promises stand like giant walls of rock. It will be well with thee, my heart, if thou canst always hide thyself in the bulwarks of His glorious attributes, all of which are guarantees of safety for those who put their trust in Him.

Blessed be the name of the Lord, I have so done, and have found myself like David in Adullam, safe from the cruelty of my enemy; I have not now to find out the blessedness of the man who puts his trust in the Lord, for long ago, when Satan and my sins pursued me, I fled to the cleft of the rock Christ Jesus, and in His riven side I found a delightful resting-place.

My heart, run to Him anew to-day, whatever thy present grief may be; Jesus feels for thee; Jesus consoles thee; Jesus will help thee. No monarch in his impregnable fortress is more secure than the cony in his rocky burrow. The master of ten thousand chariots is not one whit better protected than the little dweller in the mountain’s cleft.

In Jesus the weak are strong, and the defenceless safe; they could not be more strong if they were giants, or more safe if they were in heaven. Faith gives to men on earth the protection of the God of heaven. More they cannot need, and need not wish.

The conies cannot build a castle, but they avail themselves of what is there already: I cannot make myself a refuge, but Jesus has provided it, His Father has given it, His Spirit has revealed it, and lo, again to-night I enter it, and am safe from every foe.

Is someone taking refuge in Lord this hour? Are seeking strength that only Him can give? Look up to the hill dearly beloved, where does your help comes from? The Lord is our helper; the Lord is our strength and our fortress; hold on to the Most High God Who reigns forever. Let us go in His strength this week, bet, it will be a lot easier and better, Glory be to the Lord!

Have a blessed week ahead. Testimonies awaits you by the grace of God! Shalom!

Remain blessed in the Lord.
