And Your right hand will lay hold of me.

Light in the Fog

August 4, 2018

Psalm 107:25-31 …    He spoke and raised up a stormy wind, which lifted up the waves of the sea. They rose up to the heavens, they went down to the depths; in their peril their courage melted away. They reeled and staggered like drunken men; they were at their wits’ end. They cried out to the Lord in their distress; He delivered them from their troubles. He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed. What a blessing was that stillness as He brought them safely into harbor! Let them give thanks to the LORD for His lovingkindness, and for His wonders to the sons of men! 
.
Even in the darkness
Midst the fog of a storm
Jesus Light of the World –

Shines through
Guides and blesses
His people with strength and peace. –

What a blessing is that stillness as He leads
Into His safe harbor!

Psalm 9:9-10 Amplified Bible (AMP)
9 The Lord also will be a refuge and a stronghold for the oppressed,

For You, O Lord, have not abandoned those who seek You.

When it looks as if you can’t win
The Lord wraps you in His arms and steps in
He makes a way 
Is 43:16
Where there is no way!

But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope:
Because of the LORD’s great love and mercy we are not consumed,
… for His compassions never fail.
They are new{fresh} every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.
“The LORD is my portion,” says my soul,
… “Therefore I have hope in Him.”
The Lord is good to those who trust Him,
… to the one who seeks Him.
Lam 3:21-25

Jesus Keeps Me

July 13, 2018

Genesis 22:4-5Then on the third day Abraham lifted his eyes and saw the place afar off. 5 And Abraham said to his young men, “Stay here with the donkey; the lad and I will go yonder and worship, and we will come back to you.”
🙂
Seems I’ve been in the midst of a loooong trial. The above encouraged me. How could Abraham get thru his test? Look what he does — he lifts his eyes to heaven – where he knows his help comes from(Psalm 121:1-2)!

So this morning I do the same thing — lift my eyes thru worshipping the Lord Jesus Christ. I started with the below — “Let Praises Rise”.

It was the video that came up after this that really encouraged me! It’s as tho Jesus reminded me that in past trials He Himself kept me – He didn’t leave and He got me thru. Jesus is the one who kept me and He is keeping me still! How amazing is that – lift your eyes to the Lord your keeper — praise Him and be encouraged!!!

Psalm 121
1 I will lift up my eyes to the hills [around Jerusalem, to sacred Mount Zion and Mount Moriah]—From whence shall my help come?
2 My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.

From NetBible Ps 121:1 & Ps 121:2

  • help[05828] = to give protective aid, support

3 He will not allow your foot to slip or to be moved; He Who keeps you will not slumber.
4 Behold, He who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The Lord is your keeper; the Lord is your shade on your right hand [the side not carrying a shield].
6 The sun shall not smite you by day, nor the moon by night.
7 The Lord will keep you from all evil; He will keep your life.
8 The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forevermore.

From NetBible Ps 121:3Ps 121:4Ps 121:5Ps 121:7 & Ps 121:8

  • keeps[08104] = to guard, protect, watch with care, preserve

.

Let praises rise
From the inside
From the inside of me
May you delight
In the inside
In the inside of me

Fill my life
Till all they see
Is you Lord
Glorify Your name

All I want
Is for you
For you to be glorified
For you to be lifted high

I’ve come through many hard trials
Though temptations on every hand
Though Satan’s tried to stop me
And to place my feet on sinking sand
Through the pain and all of my sorrows
Through the tears and all my fears
The Lord was there to keep me
For He’s kept me in the midst of it all

The Lord was there to answer my call
He didn’t let me fall
Jesus kept me in the midst of it all …

    Hosea 6:3 … So let us know{acknowledge}, let us press on to know{acknowledge} the LORD. His going forth is as certain as the dawn; And He will come to us like the rain, Like the spring rain watering[03384] the earth.
    .
  • rain watering/teach[03384] = to shoot arrows, to throw water, rain, to flow as water, to instruct, to point out (as if by aiming the finger)

Notice how the word for rain/ watering is the same as teach. This is very comforting. To those who press on to know and acknowledge the Lord with an undivided{pure} heart, He will come like rain to water/teach{fill} personally.
