The Lord is good, a Strength and Stronghold in the day of trouble; He knows (recognizes, has knowledge of, and understands) those who take refuge and trust in Him.

From NetBible Nahum 1:7

  • * The Lord is good to those who trust Him – who seek His refuge
  • * The Lord is good to His people => because  like a fortress – He protects them in time of distress

Psalm 18:30-31 AMP
As for God, His way is perfect! The word of the Lord is tested and tried; He is a shield to all those who take refuge and put their trust in Him. 31 For who is God except the Lord? Or who is the Rock{Protector} save our God?

A Song:
Give thanks to the Lord for He is good
He is good
and His goodness
– your shield
– your strength
– your song …   -Ps22:3;Ex15:2;Is12:2;Ps118:14-15

Give thanks
He is good
The Lord is good -so good
He is good!

A prayer:
Psalm 5:11-12 AMP
But let all those who take refuge and put their trust in You rejoice; let them ever sing and shout for joy, because You make a covering over them and defend them; let those also who love Your name be joyful in You and be in high spirits. 12 For You, Lord, will bless the [uncompromisingly] righteous [him who is upright and in right standing with You]; as with a shield You will surround him with goodwill (pleasure and favor).

Remembering the Lord’s goodness puts a song of praise in your heart! Take joy in your Shield!

He is your strength and impenetrable shield!

Your steadfast love, O LORD, reaches to the heavens, Your faithfulness abounds to the skies. How precious is Your steadfast love, O God! The children of men take refuge and put their trust under the shadow of Your wings. -Ps36:5,7

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

God Will Lift Up Your Head!

October 13, 2010

Psalm 33:20 We wait in hope for the LORD; He is our help and our shield.

Psalm 3:3-4 But You, O Lord, are a shield for me, my glory, and the lifter of my head.

 

4With my voice I cry to the Lord, and He hears and answers me out of His holy hill. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

I was grateful this morning that the Lord is my help and shield. I was thanking Him for making a way where there is no way and that He sees the way clearly when I can not. I just need to ‘wait’ in hope for Him to lift up my head and show me the way. It was as if the Lord answered me with this song.
🙂
Be encouraged! God will lift up Your head too!
His hands are strong.

Through waves and clouds and storms,
He gently clears the way
Wait because in His time,
so shall this night
Soon end in joy

🙂

God Will Lift up Your Head
Jars of Clay

Give to the wind your fear
Hope and be undismayed
God hears your sighs and
counts your tears
God will lift up, God
will lift up, lift up
your head

Leave to His sovereign sway
To choose and to command
Then shall we wandering on His way
Know how wise and how strong
How wise and how strong

Through waves and clouds and storms,
He gently clears the way
Wait because in His time,
so shall this night
Soon end in joy, soon end in joy
Soon end in joy, soon end in joy

God will lift up your head
Soon end in joy

Chorus:
God will lift up your head
God will lift up your head
God will lift up your head
Lift up your head

____________________________________________________________________________

Those who look to Him for help will be radiant with joy; no shadow of
shame will darken their faces! -Ps 34:5 NLT

🙂

From NetBible Ps 34:5:

radiant — nahar[05102]
1) to shine, beam, light, burn
1a) (Qal) to beam, be radiant
2) to flow, stream
2a) (Qal) to flow, stream
a primitive root; to sparkle, i.e. (figuratively) be
cheerful; hence (from the sheen of a running stream) to flow,
i.e. (figuratively) assemble:-flow (together), be lightened.

!!!!!
radiant as the sheen of a running stream flowing together!

A beautiful shining procession!

Song 6:10‘Who is this that grows like the dawn, As beautiful as the full
moon, As pure as the sun, As awesome as an army with banners{a procession of shining stars}?’

Psalm 87:7They that sing as well as they that dance shall say , All my
fountains are in thee{city of God}.

Isaiah 35:6, 10Then the lame shall leap like a deer, And the tongue of the dumb sing. For waters shall burst forth in the wilderness, And streams in the desert. … And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, And come to Zion with singing, With everlasting joy on their heads. They shall obtain joy and gladness, And sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
