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.

Fear Not! Jesus is King!

December 16, 2012

The Lord has been encouraging me recently to:

Fear Not!

for He Himself is your peace

But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For He Himself is our peace … -Eph 2:13-14

He is with you always and will not fail or forsake you

Be strong, courageous, and firm; fear not nor be in terror before them, for it is the Lord your God Who goes with you; He will not fail you or forsake you. -Dt 31:6

John 14:27 AMP … Peace I leave with you; My [own] peace I now give and bequeath to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. [Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled.]

He is your strength and help, with you wherever you go

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. … For I the Lord your God hold your right hand; I am the Lord, Who says to you, Fear not; I will help you! -Is41:10,13 AMP

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go. -Josh1:9

He is your shield, your exceedingly great reward

When I looked up this verse, look! 🙂 —>

from http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=gen15:1&vers ion=AMP

Gen 15:1 AMP … After these things, the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram, I am your [a]Shield, your abundant compensation, and your reward shall be exceedingly great.

*Footnotes:
[a] Genesis 15:1 The reference is to the Lord as Abram’s King.

If Jesus Christ is your King
—> then He Himself is your shield, your exceedingly great reward!

—> He Himself is your peace, your strength, your ever present help …

Fear Not!

The Lord Your Keeper

June 4, 2011

Psalm 121:5, 8 The Lord is your keeper … The LORD will guard your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forever.

Psalm 85:13Righteousness{peace} goes before Him, and makes His footsteps our pathway{sets us in the way of His steps}.

1 Samuel 2:9
He keeps the feet of His godly ones, but the wicked ones are silenced in darkness; For not by might{strength} shall a man prevail.

I was thinking about the above scriptures this morning, how the Lord guides and keeps you as you go on His way. He gave me this song:

The Lord Your Keeper

The Lord your keeper -Ps 121:5
The Lord your peace -Ps 29:11
Gives strength for the day -Deut 33:25
To follow His way. -Ps 85:13; 1 Sam 2:9

So fear not
And be not dismayed
For the Lord who is with you
He will keep you always. -Isa 41:10

This prompted me to study the scripture for ‘strength for the day’. This really encouraged me! He is the Rock beneath our feet. He will not let our foot slip for He who keeps us will not sleep.

Word Study

Deut 33:24-25 NIV … About Asher he said: “Most blessed of sons is Asher; let him be favored by his brothers, and let him bathe his feet in oil. The bolts of your gates will be iron and bronze, and your strength will equal your days.

NKJV … And of Asher he said: “Asher is most blessed of sons; Let him be favored by his brothers, and let him dip his foot in oil. Your sandals shall be iron and bronze; As your days, so shall your strength be .

From Deut 33:24 Commentary
John Gill:
and let him dip his foot in oil;
have such plenty of it, that if he would he might dip or wash his feet in it; and it was usual not only to anoint the head, but the feet also, with oil, -Lk 7:46

Matthew Henry:
All shall be sanctified to true believers; if their way be rough, their feet shall be shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace. As thy days, so shall thy strength be. The day is often in Scripture put for the events of the day; it is a promise that God would graciously and constantly support under trials and troubles, whatever they were. It is a promise sure to all the spiritual seed of Abraham. Have they work allotted? They shall have strength to do it. Have they burdens appointed? They shall have strength, and never be tempted above what they are able to bear.

From Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
Thy shoes shall be iron and brass
*under your shoes shall be iron = strength
shoes of peace -Eph 6:15

From Deut 33:25 Commentary
John Gill:
Thy shoes shall be iron and brass
though some Jewish writers take the sense to be, that the land of Asher was so strongly fortified as if it had been enclosed with walls of brass and iron, or the gates of its cities were shut up with bolts and bars of iron and brass, as Jarchi, Kimchi, and Ben Melech observe; so the Arabic:

and as thy days, so shall thy strength be;
the same in old age as in youth; which is the sense of the Latin Vulgate version, and all the Targums: such were the vigour and strength of. Moses himself, -Deut 34:7; and so may denote a renewal of youth, like that of eagles; and, in a spiritual sense, a revival of the graces of the Spirit of God, as to the exercise of them, and an increase of spiritual strength, so that the inward man is renewed day by day; and may also denote such a measure of strength given, as is proportioned to the events that daily befall, or to the services and sufferings men are called unto; -1 Cor 10:13.

Feet washed in fragrant oil would leave fragrant oily footprints wherever they walked! -2 Cor 2:14-17

Delight in the Fear of the LORD

December 31, 2010

Psalm 33:18 AMP Behold, the Lord’s eye is upon those who fear Him [who revere and worship Him with awe], who wait for Him and hope in His mercy and loving-kindness.

Beautiful in His sight
Held in His gaze
The apple of His eye
Sheltered -Ps 91:1
Covered beneath His wings -Ps 17:8; Prv 7:1-2

Treasured and greatly desired
His delight -Ps 45:11; Ps 147:11

 

Is the one who
… Bows down in delight before the King.

A sweet incense
A living sacrifice -Eph 5:1-2; Rom 12:1-2
Delight in the fear of the LORD
Delight in the Word -Ps 119:16; Mt 4:4
Savor the wonder and awe of the Kings presence
Upheld in His mighty right hand
Fullness of joy
Forevermore. -Isa 41:10; Ps 16:11

Lord Jesus prepare our hearts to bow down in delight at Your feet before Your throne. Let our worship be as incense, pleasing and acceptable in Your sight. Let Your word be the joy of our hearts, that our lips may praise You. Help us abide, sheltered beneath Your wings, kept as the apple of Your eye in the wonder and awe of Your presence, upheld by You mighty right hand in the fullness of joy.

May the God of peace … the great Shepherd of the sheep … make you complete in every good work to do His will, working in you what is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen. -Heb 13:20-21 (NKJV)

Isaiah 11:3 His delight is in the fear of the LORD*, And He shall not judge by the sight of His eyes, Nor decide by the hearing of His ears.

Psalm 112:1 Praise the LORD! Blessed is the man who fears the LORD, Who delights greatly in His commandments.

Psalm 147:11 The LORD takes pleasure in those who fear Him, in those who hope in His mercy.

Psalm 86:11-12 Teach me Your way, O LORD; I will walk in Your truth; Unite my heart to fear Your name. I will praise You, O Lord my God, with all my heart, and I will glorify Your name forevermore.

Psalm 111:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; A good understanding have all those who do His commandments; His praise endures forever.

Word Study

From: NetBible Isa 11:3
* The Hebrew text reads literally, “and his smelling is in the fear of the Lord.” In Amos 5:21 the Hiphil of רוּחַ (ruakh, “smell”) carries the nuance of “smell with delight, get pleasure from.” There the Lord declares that he does not “smell with delight” (i.e., get pleasure from) Israel’s religious assemblies, which probably stand by metonymy for the incense offered during these festivals. In Isa 11:3 there is no sacrificial context to suggest such a use, but it is possible that “the fear of the Lord” is likened to incense. This coming king will get the same kind of delight from obeying (fearing) the Lord, as a deity does in the incense offered by worshipers. Some regard such an explanation as strained in this context, and prefer to omit this line from the text as a virtual dittograph of the preceding statement.
