Troubled Times (COVID-19 pandemic series)
Through faith in Christ, we are given a spirit of power, love, and discipline, and for that reason, we have nothing to fear. We can hold on to his promises and be confident that he’ll see us through even the darkest days.
Can You Wait On The Lord?
Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation. He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defense; I shall not be greatly moved.
If you are born of a woman, then there is a proclivity to be impatient. King David was like all of us, born of a woman, making us all human with the same essential characteristics, “when do we want it, we want it now!” David made a point in verse 1, “my soul waits upon the Lord.” Likewise, the children of God are to be disciplined and wait for whatever God will allow.
Spirit of Life, Romans 8:2. “Spirit of life” eludes that the Holy Spirit imparts newness of life. When we receive eternal life through Christ Jesus, the Spirit as the sustainer provides the spiritual food that is the sustenance of the spiritual life. Here again, we see the triune God at work for our good, and we give Him thanksgiving. With uplifted hands, we come in a spirit of oneness, and for the being our rock and salvation, we surrender praise. We declare and decree the blessing (the indwelling of the Holy Spirit) upon those who are secured with patience, so that; the voice of the lost will discover hope in defense of the Lord. Now, for the Kingdom and Glory of God, we petition, with anointing, in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and Savior, Amen.
