Stand Firm

September 30, 2012

Proverbs 10:25When the storm has swept by, the wicked are gone, but the righteous stand firm forever{has an everlasting foundation}.

Isaiah 26:4Trust in the LORD forever, for in GOD the LORD, we have an everlasting Rock.

Those whose hope is firmly planted in the Lord stand firm.
This hope is an anchor for the soul!
-Heb 6:17-20

Do not be afraid
Stand firm and you will see
The deliverance the LORD will bring you today
The LORD will fight for you
You need only to be still and hold your peace.
Exo 14:13-14

Hebrews 10:35-37 NLT …  So do not throw away this confident
trust in the Lord, no matter what happens. Remember the great reward it brings you! Patient endurance is what you need now, so that you will continue to do God’s will. Then you will receive all that He has promised. For in just a little while, the Coming One will come and not delay.

Hebrews 10:23Let us hold fast the confession of our hope{in Christ Jesus} without wavering, for He who promised is faithful!

Psalm 40:1-3I waited patiently for the Lord; He turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; He set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear the Lord and put their trust in Him.

Stand firm on the Rock and praise!

Psalms 18:46The LORD lives! Praise be to my Rock! Exalted be God my Saviour!

Psalm 107:1-2,43Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; His unfailing love endures forever. Let the redeemed of the LORD say so — those whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy. … Whoever is wise, let him heed these things{take all this to heart} and consider the great love{and mercies} of the LORD.

His unfailing love and mercies ENDURE FOREVER!
They never come to an end or run out

From NetBible Ps 107:1

endures forever[05769] = unending, perpetual, permanent, age to age, for all time

Nothing can separate me from His unfailing love and mercies! -Rom 8:37-39

It’s only because of the LORD’s unfailing love and mercies that
we are not consumed and
we have a firm place to stand.
-Lam 3:21-23;Ps 40:1-3

Every morning new
We are not consumed

Lead Me to the Rock

October 3, 2009

The Lord is my Strength and my [impenetrable] Shield -Ps 28:7
Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I
My shelter, my strong tower -Ps 61:2-3
My refuge, my place of safety. -Ps 91:2

Incline Your ear, LORD, hear my cry
Lift me up from the miry clay
Set my feet upon the immovable, unshakeable Rock
Surrounded by Your loving-kindness and sweet mercy -Ps 32:10
There my heart rejoices and I sing Your praise. -Ps 40:1-3

Help me Lord, hear my cry
Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I
You are my hiding place, my impenetrable shield
My heart expectantly trusts and waits
Sheltered beneath Your wings
Filled with joy unspeakable
I am helped
My thankful heart sings.

I WAITED patiently and expectantly for the Lord; and He inclined to me and heard my cry. He drew me up out of a horrible pit [a pit of tumult and of destruction], out of the miry clay (froth and slime), and set my feet upon a rock, steadying my steps and establishing my goings. And He has put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many shall see and fear (revere and worship) and put their trust and confident reliance in the Lord. -Ps 40:1-3

You are a hiding place for me; You, Lord, preserve me from trouble, You surround me with songs and shouts of deliverance. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]! … he who trusts in, relies on, and confidently leans on the Lord shall be compassed about with mercy and with loving-kindness. -Ps 32:7, 10

O Lord, be gracious to us; we have waited [expectantly] for You. Be the arm [of Your servants–their strength and defense] every morning, our salvation in the time of trouble. -Isa 33:2
