Word Study

From NetBible Ps 56:4
In God (I will praise His word), In God I have put my trust; I will not fear. What can flesh do to me?

  • * praise His word = boast in His promise
  • * God’s “word” is here understood as an assuring promise of protection. Another option (2) is to translate, “in God I will boast [with] a word.” In this case, the “word” is a song of praise. The present translation reflects yet another option (3): In this case “I praise his word” is a parenthetical statement, with “his word” being the object of the verb.

.
From NetBible Ps 46:10
Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!

  • Be still and know = cease/stop striving and recognize, be at peace in the knowledge
    • * To the nations who rage against God and His people, this is a rebuke to stop fighting/ striving against the Sovereign Lord
    • * To God’s children this is a call to trust and rest secure in the Sovereign Lord’s protection
  • exalted means recognized as Sovereign King => The Lord of Hosts, King of Glory(Ps 24:10) who fights and delivers on behalf of His children(Ps 46:11)

Our God is Greater

March 14, 2015

The scripture and song below were on my mind this week.

Isaiah 41:10 AMP
10 Fear not [there is nothing to fear], for I am with you; do not look around you in terror and be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen and harden you to difficulties, yes, I will help you; yes, I will hold you up and retain you with My [victorious] right hand of rightness and justice.

Our God is Greater! by Chris Tomlin

Chorus:
Our God is greater, our God is stronger, God you are higher than any other. Our God is Healer, Awesome in Power, Our God! Our God!

And if our God is for us, then who could ever stop us.
And if our God is with us, then what could stand against.

When you are afraid
Remember who is with you!

If you look at your difficulties and know you can’t
=> Remember God is with you and He can!

If many appear to be against you and you feel weak
=> Remember God is with you and He is not only strong
=> He is more than able! –Eph 3:20-21

God is greater than our greatest problem or difficulty!

Today be encouraged and don’t be afraid or discouraged
=> Remember how much the Father cares for the sparrow.

 

Matthew 10:29-31 AMP
29 Are not two little sparrows sold for a penny? And yet not one of them will fall to the ground without your Father’s leave (consent) and notice.
30 But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
31 Fear not, then; you are of more value than many sparrows.

An Invitation to Trust

January 7, 2012

 

Don’t be afraid is an invitation to TRUST in the Lord
Wholeheartedly seek and you will find
His eye is on the sparrow
Great is His faithfulness to provide! 
-Mt 10:29-31;Nah 1:7;Mt 6:28,33;Lam 3:23
