Overwhelmed?

February 7, 2017

Psalm 142:3 NLT … For I am overwhelmed, and You alone know the way I should turn. 

Overwhelmed in a dark place?
Remember no matter how dark it is
=> The Lord knows the “Way” out
=> Only He knows the way out of this “prison”!

Remember Paul and Silas
Worship and pray!

Acts 16:25-26 NASB … But about midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns of praise to God, and the prisoners were listening to them; 26 and suddenly there came a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison house were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were unfastened.

Psalm 142:7 NLT … Bring me out of prison so I can thank You. The godly will crowd around me, for You treat me kindly.

From NetBible Ps 142:3

  • overwhelmed[05848]= grow weak, faint, despair, shrouded in darkness
  • NET … when my strength leaves me,  You watch my footsteps. …
  • NIV … When my spirit grows faint within me, it is You who know my way. …

From NetBible Ps 142:7

  • prison[04525]= dungeon
  • NET … Free me  from prison, that I may give thanks to Your name. Because of me the godly will assemble,  for You will vindicate me.
  • NIV … Set me free from my prison, that I may praise Your name. Then the righteous will gather about me because of Your goodness to me.
  • NKJV … Bring my soul out of prison, That I may praise Your name; The righteous shall surround me, For You shall deal bountifully with me.

The Firm Strength of my Heart

November 1, 2016

 

ps62_2

My flesh and my heart may fail
But You LORD are my Rock
The firm strength of my heart
My Portion forever! –
 Ps73:26

Your loyal love, O LORD
Reaches to the heavens
Your faithfulness to the skies. –
Ps36:5

Praise You Lord Jesus
Your love is beyond understanding
=>wider, longer, higher & deeper than any of us can imagine …

Luke 22:39-46 NASB
The Garden of Gethsemane
39 And He came out and proceeded as was His custom to the Mount of Olives; and the disciples also followed Him. 40 When He arrived at the place, He said to them, “Pray that you may not enter into temptation.” 41 And He withdrew from them about a stone’s throw, and He knelt down and began to pray, 42 saying, “Father, if You are willing, remove this cup from Me; yet not My will, but Yours be done.” 43 Now an angel from heaven appeared to Him, strengthening Him. 44 And being in agony He was praying very fervently; and His sweat became like drops of blood, falling down upon the ground. 45 When He rose from prayer, He came to the disciples and found them sleeping from sorrow, 46 and said to them, “Why are you sleeping? Get up and pray that you may not enter into temptation.”

Your love, Lord Jesus
=>is deeper than any pain!
Mt 26:39;Mk 14:36;Jn 6:38
The firm strength of my heart forever!
HalleluYah!!!

Ephesians 3:14-21 NLT … When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, 15 the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. 16 I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. 17 Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. 18 And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. 19 May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.

20 Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. 21 Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.

Strength to Stand

August 6, 2014

Psalm 61:1-3 AMP
1 Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer.
2 From the end of the earth will I cry to You, when my heart is overwhelmed and fainting; lead me to the rock that is higher than I [yes, a rock that is too high for me].
3 For You have been a shelter and a refuge for me, a strong tower against the adversary.

Stand

2 Samuel 22:33-34 AMP
33 God is my strong Fortress; He guides the blameless in His way and sets him free.
34 He makes my feet like the hinds’ [firm and able]; He sets me secure and confident upon the heights.

From NetBible 2Sam 33-34

  • NET … The one true God is my mighty refuge; He removes the obstacles in my way. He gives me the agility of a deer;   he enables me to negotiate the rugged terrain.
    * in Ps 18:33 it refers to a pathway free of obstacles. The reality underlying the metaphor is the psalmist’s ability to charge into battle without tripping (see vv. 33, 36).
    *He sets me secure and confident upon the heights. = “and on my high places he makes me walk.” The imperfect verbal form emphasizes God’s characteristic provision. The psalmist compares his agility in battle to the ability of a deer to negotiate rugged, high terrain without falling or being injured. Habakkuk uses similar language to describe his faith during difficult times. See Hab 3:19.

 

When your heart is overwhelmed
Remember who your strength is
Remember who helps make a way
Where there appears to be no way.

Remember the hind and
Rely on the Lord to give you strength and
Help you negotiate “rugged terrain” without falling.

Psalm 18:33,36 AMPC
33 He makes my feet like hinds’ feet [able to stand firmly or make progress on the dangerous heights of testing and trouble]; He sets me securely upon my high places.

36 You have given plenty of room for my steps under me, that my feet would not slip.

Habakkuk 3:17-19 AMPC
17 Though the fig tree does not blossom and there is no fruit on the vines, [though] the product of the olive fails and the fields yield no food, though the flock is cut off from the fold and there are no cattle in the stalls, 18 Yet I will rejoice  in the Lord; I will exult in the [victorious] God of my salvation! 19 The Lord God is my Strength, my personal bravery, and my invincible army; He makes my feet like hinds’ feet and will make me to walk [not to stand still in terror, but to walk] and make [spiritual] progress upon my high places [of trouble, suffering, or responsibility]!

Hard Pressed

August 3, 2011

2 Corinthians 4:7But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.

Lord Jesus in the hard times help me to remember, when I am weak You are strong. Help me to rely on, lean on and trust in You, both in and out of hard pressed times. Help me to find joy in knowing that when things are hard for me, Your goodness will always shine through. For even the darkness is not dark to You!

After I prayed the above prayer, I looked up the phrase Even the darkness is not dark to You from Ps 139:12.

The word study gives the sense that there is NO darkness dark enough to hide you from the Lord’s sight or reach. This brought a smile to my face. 🙂

But through the verse before the Lord really touched my heart with the joy only He can bring!

If I say, “Surely the darkness will overwhelm me, And the light around me will be night,” -Ps 139:11.

Another word for overwhelm here is crush! It’s as if the Lord told me not to worry about the overwhelming darkness – there is no circumstance dark enough to crush me or hide me from the Lord’s sight or hand ….

Even there Your hand will lead me, And Your right hand will lay hold of me. -Ps 139:10

This I declare of the LORD: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; He is my God, and I am trusting Him.-Ps 91:2 NLT

Word Study

From NetBible Ps 139:12

  • NASB = Even the darkness is not dark to You, And the night is as bright as the day. Darkness and light are alike to You.
  • Net = even the darkness is not too dark for You to see
  • NLT = but even in darkness I cannot hide from You

From NetBible Ps 139:11

  • NASB = If I say, “Surely the darkness will overwhelm me, And the light around me will be night,”
    • overwhelm[07779] = to crush, to fall upon

From NetBible Ps 139:10

  • NASB = Even there Your hand will lead me, And Your right hand will lay hold of me.
    • hand[03027] = strength, power
    • lay hold[0270] = grasp, take possession of

But the LORD

November 7, 2010

Psalm 118:11-14
They surrounded me, Yes, they surrounded me
{Hemmed in and with no way out};
… But in the name of the LORD I will destroy them{push them away}.
They surrounded me like bees;
… They were quenched like a fire of thorns
{they died out as quickly as burning thorns};
… For in the name of the LORD I will destroy them{push them away}.
I was pushed back and about to fall,
… but the LORD helped{succor, surround, protect} me.
The LORD is my strength and song, and He has become my salvation.

You may feel as if you are surrounded
Hard pressed on every side
As if hemmed in by a dark cloud of swarming bees.

You may feel as if you are about to fall.

Don’t be afraid,

The Lord is our help, our protective sheild
Our strength, our song.

Come into His presence
Sing in the shadow of His wings
Sing for joy

For underneath are the everlasting arms
His right hand upholds.

 

Psalm 63:7-8
Because You are my help, I sing in the shadow of Your wings.
My soul clings to{follows hard after} You; Your right hand upholds me.

Deuteronomy 33:27
The eternal God is your refuge, And underneath are the everlasting arms; He will thrust out the enemy from before you, And will say, ‘Destroy!’

Sunlight On Your Face

March 4, 2009
Psalm 112:4   Even in darkness light dawns{arises} for the upright, for the gracious and compassionate and righteous one.

Soon after posting Upright Dawn and thinking about light dawning in the darkness I heard the following song.

You Led Me
BarlowGirl
.
Good morning
The night is over and gone
I thought once
This dark would last for so long
.
Pre Chorus
Feel the sunlight
On my face
You have brought me
Through this place
.
Chorus
Jesus, Jesus You found me
Through the long night you led me
You set me free

Do you see
Just what you’ve done in my life?

You gave me
More then I hoped for; now I

Pre Chorus
feel your sunlight
On my face
You have brought me
Through this place

It brought me such hope! There is no place so dark that the light of the Son can not reach.

If I say, “Surely the darkness will overwhelm me, and the light around me will be night,”  even the darkness will not be dark to You; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to You. –Ps 139:11-12

So if you find yourself in a dark place today, take heart, the Lord Jesus makes a way where there is no way. He cares for those who belong to Him. He leads His own out of the darkness into the light of dawn, into the rising Son.

Rejoice! Seek the Son! Feel the Sonlight on your up turned face leading you out of the darkness of night into the light of the full day. The upright WILL behold His face!

Keep your face turned towards the sunshine
And the shadows will fall behind you.

Psalm 11:7   The LORD is righteous, He loves righteousness; The upright will behold His face.

Numbers 6:24-26   The LORD bless you, and keep you; the LORD make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the LORD turn His face towards you and give you peace.”
