We thank You Father, for Your great love over us, for preserving and keeping us. You are the Lord, received all the glory and honour in Jesus name.
A brand new week is here and we cannot take it for granted that His grace availed it to us, we therefore, refused to be seen and we surrender all to God Almighty.
Beloved, we will be taking off the week with two wonderful promises from the Word of life that guarantees our safety and help from above.
Please, come let see what a Word from the Master meant for His obedient servant:
“I will strengthen thee.” Isa. 41:10
When called to serve or to suffer, we take stock of our strength, and we find it to be less than we thought, and less than we need. But let not our heart sink within us while we have such a word as this to fall back upon, for it guarantees us all that we can possibly need. God has strength omnipotent; that strength He can communicate to us; and His promise is that He will do so. He will be the food of our souls, and the health of our hearts; and thus He will give us strength. There is no telling how much power God can put into a man. When divine strength comes, human weakness is no more a hindrance.
Do we not remember seasons of labor and trial in which we received such special strength that we wondered at ourselves? In the midst of danger we were calm, under bereavement we were resigned, in slander we were self-contained, and in sickness we were patient. The fact is, that God gives unexpected strength when unusual trials come upon us.
We rise out of our feeble selves. Cowards play the man, foolish ones have wisdom given them, and the silent receive in the self-same hour what they shall speak. My own weakness makes me shrink, but God’s promise makes me brave. Lord, strengthen me “according to thy word.” And send to me “Help from Without”
“Yea, I will help thee.” Isa. 41:10
The promise above secured us strength for what we have to do, but this guarantees us aid in cases where we cannot act alone. The Lord says, “I will help thee.” Strength within is supplemented by help without. God can raise us up allies in our warfare if so it seems good in His sight; and even if He does not send us human assistance, He himself will be at our side, and this is better still. “Our August Ally” is better than legions of mortal helpers.
His help is timely: He is a very present help in time of trouble. His help is very wise: He knows how to give each man help meet and fit for him. His help is most effectual, though vain is the help of man. His help is more than help, for He bears all the burden, and supplies all the need. “The Lord is my helper, I will not fear what man can do unto me.
Because He has already been our help, we feel confidence in Him for the present and the future. Our prayer is, “Lord, be thou my helper”; our experience is, “The Spirit also helpeth our infirmities; our expectation is, “I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, whence cometh my help”; and our song soon will be, “Thou, Lord, hast helped me.”
I had an encounter recently that proved another side of God to me. In the eleventh chapter of Mark verse 24 it said, Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. Mk 11:24 (KJV). I prayed and believed, and in no time healing came from Him. I thank You Father, I honour You, I return all the glory to You Alone, Amen.
So, can you just start praying and believing that ye have received what soever you asked in the Name of Jesus. I don’t need to remind you that your desires must be God’s will and you must be a child of the kingdom to partake of these promises. Click here to accept Jesus now and become one of His children.
Dear beloved, let us on the premise of these promises run the week like never before. Whatsoever we set out to achieve this week, may God grant us auction to achieve in Jesus Name. Someone will testify of His goodness before the end of the week in Jesus Name. If you are the one, shout Alleluia!
Remain blessed in the Lord.
