True Deliverance

Psalm 25:14-15 AMP

15 My eyes are ever toward the Lord, for He will pluck my feet out of the net.

True deliverance comes from the Lord
To those who fear (revere and worship) Him
To those who know and trust Him
Who have tasted His mercy
Whose eyes are ever toward the Lord.

Psalm 9:9-10 AMP
9 The Lord also will be a refuge and a high tower for the oppressed, a refuge and a stronghold in times of trouble (high cost, destitution, and desperation).
10 And they who know Your name [who have experience and acquaintance with Your mercy] will lean on and confidently put their trust in You, for You, Lord, have not forsaken those who seek (inquire of and for) You [on the authority of God’s Word and the right of their necessity].

Courage

Be of good courage
The Lion of Judah never fails or forsakes
His roar is your protection and deliverance!

Joel 3:16 AMP
16 The Lord will thunder and roar from Zion and utter His voice from Jerusalem, and the heavens and the earth shall shake; but the Lord will be a refuge for His people and a stronghold to the children of Israel.

1 Samuel 2:10 AMP
10 The adversaries of the Lord shall be broken to pieces; against them will He thunder in heaven. The Lord will judge [all peoples] to the ends of the earth; and He will give strength to His king (King) and exalt the power of His anointed (Anointed His Christ).

Remember, at ALL times, the peace of the Lord is only a prayer away!

Philippians 4:4-7 AMP
4 Rejoice in the Lord always [delight, gladden yourselves in Him]; again I say, Rejoice!
5 Let all men know and perceive and recognize your unselfishness (your considerateness, your forbearing spirit). The Lord is near [He is coming soon].
6 Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God.
7 And God’s peace [shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

Prayer:
2 Thessalonians 3:16
AMP
16 Now may the Lord of peace Himself grant you His peace (the peace of His kingdom) at all times and in all ways [under all circumstances and conditions, whatever comes]. The Lord [be] with you all.

Psalm 138:8 AMP
8 The Lord will perfect that which concerns me; Your mercy and loving-kindness, O Lord, endure forever—forsake not the works of Your own hands.

NIV … The LORD will fulfil his purpose for me; your love, O LORD, endures for ever—do not abandon the works of your hands.

NASB … The LORD will accomplish what concerns me; Your lovingkindness, O LORD, is everlasting; Do not forsake the works of Your hands.

From Treasury of David

“The work which his goodness began,
The arm of his strength will complete;
His promise is yea and Amen,
And never was forfeited yet.”

Faith’s full assurance: “The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me.”
Faith’s firm foundation: “Thy mercy, O Lord, endureth for ever.”
Faith’s fervent prayer: “Forsake not the works of thine own hands.”

Take heart
The Lord will never abandon or forsake
He will finish and perfect what He began
His purposes fulfilled

Surrender to the work of His mighty hands.

Be Strong and Courageous

October 11, 2014

2 Timothy 1:7 AMP
7 For God did not give us a spirit of timidity (of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear), but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of calm and well-balanced mind and discipline and self-control.

From NetBible 2Tim 1:7

  • spirit[4151] = Holy Spirit, breath of God
  • timidity[1167] = fearfulness, cowardice
  • power[1411] = strength, ability, might
  • love[26] = agape: brotherly love, affection, good will, benevolence
  • sound mind[4995] = self-control, moderation, discipline

Be strong
Be of good courage
For it is the Lion of Judah who goes with you
Wherever you go.

 
Joshua 1:9 AMP
9 Have not I commanded you? Be strong, vigorous, and very courageous. Be not afraid, neither be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.

Lord when we are afraid, help us to remember, that You the Lion of Judah are with us in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen!

An Open Door

October 8, 2014

Revelation 3:7-9 AMP
7 And to the angel (messenger) of the assembly (church) in Philadelphia write: These are the words of the Holy One, the True One, He Who has the key of David, Who opens and no one shall shut, Who shuts and no one shall open:
8 I know your [record of] works and what you are doing. See! I have set before you a door wide open which no one is able to shut; I know that you have but little power, and yet you have kept My Word and guarded My message and have not renounced or denied My name.
9 Take note! I will make those of the synagogue of Satan who say they are Jews and are not, but lie—behold, I will make them come and bow down before your feet and learn and acknowledge that I have loved you

The Lord acknowledges those who keep His word and guard His message; Those who do not deny His name.

Is there an open door before you? Trust in the Lord and go through it!

Is there a closing door? Trust in the Lord’s guidance -no matter how good it “looks” on the other side of the closed door.

Trust in the Lord to open and close the right doors.

OpenDoor

He gives and takes away – but I will “choose” to say
BLESSED BE THE NAME OF THE LORD! JESUS!

A healing balm poured forth is Your name
You are able, more than able
To do the impossible – Lk1:36-37
Yesterday, today, forever the same -He 13:8
You never change
You alone are my praise!

Jesus
You are able, more than able
A healing balm poured forth is Your name
You alone are my praise! – Jer 17:14

Ephesians 3:20-21 AMP
20 Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]—
21 To Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever. Amen (so be it).

Jeremiah 8:22 AMP
Is there no balm{medicinal ointment} in Gilead? Is there no physician there? Why then is not the health of the daughter of my people restored? [Because Zion no longer enjoyed the presence of the Great Physician!]

From NetBible Jer 8:22

  • *balm = medicinal ointment
  • *Jeremiah is lamenting that though there is a remedy available for the recovery of his people they have not availed themselves of it.

Be Ready to Defend!

September 28, 2014

1 Peter 3:14-16 AMP
14 But even in case you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, [you are] blessed (happy, to be envied). Do not dread or be afraid of their threats, nor be disturbed [by their opposition].
15 But in your hearts set Christ apart as holy [and acknowledge Him] as Lord. Always be ready to give a logical defense to anyone who asks you to account for the hope that is in you, but do it courteously and respectfully.
16 [And see to it that] your conscience is entirely clear (unimpaired), so that, when you are falsely accused as evildoers, those who threaten you abusively and revile your right behavior in Christ may come to be ashamed [of slandering your good lives].

Do not be afraid
By anyone who opposes your life in Christ.

Instead acknowledge Him as Lord
Remind the opposition of who the Lord Jesus is
And to whom you belong!

The Sovereign Lord,
Maker of heaven and earth will vindicate you!

Psalm 26:1-3 AMP
1 Vindicate me, O Lord, for I have walked in my integrity; I have [expectantly] trusted in, leaned on, and relied on the Lord without wavering and I shall not slide.
2 Examine me, O Lord, and prove me; test my heart and my mind.
3 For Your loving-kindness is before my eyes, and I have walked in Your truth [faithfully].

Thank You Lord Jesus, You are our hope, our help and shield. Help us to keep Your mercy and loving-kindness ever before our eyes. And help us walk in Your truth, that others may see and ask for an account of our hope!

Psalm 115:11 AMP
11 You who [reverently] fear the Lord, trust in and lean on the Lord! He is their Help and their Shield.

An Assuring Word

September 24, 2014

Jeremiah 17:14 AMP
14 Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved, for You are my praise.

From NetBible Jer 17:14

  • save[03467] = deliver, to give victory, to help,preserve, rescue
  • praise[08416] = song or hymn, adoration, glory
    *from [01984] = to shine, boast, glory, celebrate

From BlueLetterBible

  • praise[08416] = person or thing in which one glories -Jer 17:14 &
    Due 10:21 … He is your praise, and He is your God, who has done for you these great and awesome things which your eyes have seen.

Heal me O Lord
And I will be healed
Save me
And I will be saved

Heal me O Lord
And I will be healed
Send forth
Your assuring word -Ps 107:20

For You alone are my praise
Jesus You are my praise

A healing balm poured forth -Jer 8:22
Jesus You alone are my praise.

 

Psalm 107:20 AMP
20 He sends forth His {assuring}word and heals them and rescues them from the pit and destruction.

From NetBible Ps 107:20

  • word[01697] = speech, saying, utterance

    *Heb “he sent his word.” This probably refers to an oracle of assurance which announced his intention to intervene (see L. C. Allen, Psalms 101-150 [WBC], 59)

  • heals[07495] = to mend (by stitching), to cure, repair, make whole
  • rescues[04422] = delivered, saved, preserved

    *Heb “he rescued from their traps.” The Hebrew wordשְׁחִית (shekhit, “trap”) occurs only here and in Lam 4:20, where it refers to a trap or pit in which one is captured. Because of the rarity of the term and the absence of an object with the verb “rescued,” some prefer to emend the text of Ps 107:20, reading מִשַׁחַת חַיָּתָם (mishakhat khayyatam, “[he rescued] their lives from the pit”). Note also NIV “from the grave,” which interprets the “pit” as Sheol or the grave.

 

Jeremiah 8:22 AMP
Is there no balm{medicinal ointment} in Gilead? Is there no physician there? Why then is not the health of the daughter of my people restored? [Because Zion no longer enjoyed the presence of the Great Physician!]

From NetBible Jer 8:22

  • *balm = medicinal ointment
  • *Jeremiah is lamenting that though there is a remedy available for the recovery of his people they have not availed themselves of it.

Extol the King of Kings!

September 21, 2014

Psalm 145:1 AMP
1 I will extol You, my God, O King; and I will bless Your name forever and ever [with grateful, affectionate praise].

From NetBible Ps 145:1

  • extol[7311] = set on high, lift/raise up
  • bless[01288] = to praise, salute, kneel as a n act of adoration

Psalm 68:3-4 AMP
3 But let the [uncompromisingly] righteous be glad; let them be in high spirits and glory before God, yes, let them [jubilantly] rejoice!
4 Sing to God, sing praises to His name, cast up a highway for Him Who rides through the deserts—His name is the Lord—be in high spirits and glory before Him!

NKJV … 3 But let the righteous be glad; Let them rejoice before God; Yes, let them rejoice exceedingly. 4 Sing to God, sing praises to His name; Extol Him who rides on the clouds, By His name YAH, And rejoice before Him.

From NetBible Ps 68:4

  • extol[05549] = lift up a song, cast up a highway/way

 

Singing praises, rejoicing and extolling the Lord – is like casting up a highway – inviting Him in – bringing the reign/rain of His presence.

This is a good thing to do especially in the desert — for it’s only the Lord’s presence that brings rain into your desert.

Psalm 68:8-9 AMP
8The earth trembled, the heavens also poured down [rain] at the presence of God; yonder Sinai quaked at the presence of God, the God of Israel.
9 You, O God, did send a plentiful rain; You did restore and confirm Your heritage when it languished and was weary.

Proverbs 16:15 AMP
15 In the light of the king’s countenance is life, and his favor is as a cloud bringing the spring rain.

Psalm 84:5 NASB
5 How blessed is the man whose strength is in You, In whose heart are the highways to Zion!

Comforted to Comfort

September 20, 2014

2 Corinthians 1:3-5 NLT
God Offers Comfort to All

3 All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort[3874]. 4 He comforts[3870] us in all our troubles so that we can comfort[3874] others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort[3870] God has given us. 5 For the more we suffer for Christ, the more God will shower us with his comfort[3874] through Christ.

John 14:16 AMP
16 And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Comforter [3875](Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, and Standby), that He may remain with you forever …

From NetBible 2 Cor 1:3-5Jn 14:16

  • comfort[3874] paraklesis = a calling near, summons for consolation/help
  • comforts[3870] parakaleo = to call to one’s side/aid
  • comforter[3875] parakletos = summoned, called to one’s side/aid

What do you do when facing a crisis? When you are in pain? When you are suffering?

There is One who is the source of ALL comfort, who will “come alongside” to help ==> Jesus Christ

==> IF you ask


CloseComfort

John 14:18 …KJV

From NetBible Jn 14:18

  • leave[863] = depart from, abandon
  • comfortless[3737] => leave fatherless, bereaved
    *abandon as orphans = leave you helpless

Jesus promises not only to comfort you but to use you to comfort others, to turn your trial into good!
