Instead lean on Christ
Rely on Him
Jesus Christ is the FIRM strength of your heart
Your portion forever!

Only then will you be ready for anything and everything!

Zechariah 4:6 AMP
6 Then he said to me, This [addition of the bowl to the candlestick, causing it to yield a ceaseless supply of oil from the olive trees] is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit [of Whom the oil is a symbol], says the Lord of hosts.

Philippians 4:13 AMP
13 I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency].

Recently as I was meditating and praying the above scriptures, the Lord gave me an encouraging song. It is a reminder that the Lord is our strength and that there is no other Rock like Jesus Christ our Lord!

Not By Might

Not by power
Not by might
But by Your Spirit Lord
I can do all things through the strength of Christ
I can do all things through the strength of Christ
All praise be to my Rock!

No other Rock
I know not one
You alone Lord
Are truly great!

You are the first
You are the last
Lord Almighty You
Are truly great!

I can do all things through the strength of Christ
I can do all things through the strength of Christ
All praise be to my Rock!

Isaiah 44:6-8 AMP
6 Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel and his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts: I am the First and I am the Last; besides Me there is no God.
7 Who is like Me? Let him [stand and] proclaim it, declare it, and set [his proofs] in order before Me, since I made and established the people of antiquity. [Who has announced from of old] the things that are coming? Then let them declare yet future things.
8 Fear not, nor be afraid [in the coming violent upheavals]; have I not told it to you from of old and declared it? And you are My witnesses! Is there a God besides Me? There is no [other] Rock; I know not any.

Verse of the Day ->Colossians 2:6-7
Just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.

Psalm 68:28 Your God has commanded your strength; Show Yourself strong, O God, who have acted on our behalf{Strenghten/confirm, O God, that which you have worked in us.}.

Phil 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me{I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me}.

Psalm 18:35 You give me your protective shield; your right hand supports me; your willingness to help enables me to prevail.

O Lord be magnified, You are highly exalted
And there is NOTHING that You can’t do
Rise up O Sovereign Lord
Show Yourself strong
Hear the voice of your people call
Rise up and show Yourself strong
In our weakness You are always faithful
Always strong.  

Let all who seek You rejoice and be glad in You; Let those who love Your salvation say continually,
“The LORD be magnified!” -Ps 40:16

O magnify the LORD with me,
And let us exalt His name together. -Ps 34:3

The smoldering wick only needs His breath to rest on it
Breath like fragrant apples
His apples of gold
His sweet fruit and scent to restore and refresh
The smoldering wick then bursts into flame
Shining the strength and glory of the Lord!

Proverbs 25:11
A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold In settings of silver.

Isaiah 50:4
The Lord GOD has given me an instructed tongue, That I may know how to sustain the weary one with a word. He awakens me morning by morning, He awakens my ear to listen like one being taught..

Song 2:4-5
He has brought me to his banquet hall, And his banner over me is love.  Sustain me with cakes of raisins, Refresh me with apples, For I am lovesick.

A Bruised Reed; A Smoldering Wick

Run to Him

How Can I Keep From Singing Your Praise?

November 24, 2009

Has you heart been broken or hurt by what feels like rejection by others? The LORD really encouraged me this morning with the above picture and a song.

First — LOVE ‘EM ANYWAY! How could I miss this in big letters?

But HOW?

I can do all things through CHRIST who STRENGTHENS me! -Phil 4:13

See that word in the top right corner? 🙂


Do not grieve, for the joy of the LORD is your strength! -Neh 8:10

For the Lord your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With His love, He will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs’ -Zeph 3:17

Knowing that He sings over us — how can we not sing back?

Also when we know that we are loved by the King — no matter what — whether we are accepted or rejected by others — how can we keep from singing to the King?

So if today your heart feels as if it’s broken beyond repair,
Come to the King, remember His great love for you
Remember He longs to sing over you

Worship the LORD with gladness; come before Him with joyful songs. -Ps 100:2

Let Him strengthen you and heal your broken heart.
To Jesus Christ our Savior NOTHING is beyond repair!

The LORD is near to the brokenhearted
… And saves those who are crushed in spirit. -Ps 34:18

He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. -Ps 147:3
