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.
He Answers And Strengthens Us
I will praise thee with my whole heart: before the gods will I sing praise unto thee. I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name. In the day when I cried thou answeredst me, and strengthenedst me with strength in my soul.
Our focus is on the production of this verse where it says… “when I cried thou answered me and strengthen my soul.” After we have praised Him with our whole heart; consecrated our focus on that which feeds me; put aside selfish thought and let Him lead you into Peace. Praise God for His loving kindness, and the Truth (which is Jesus) for His Word is above every name. Here is the Hope, when we cry He answers because we have a relationship with Him. When you build that relationship, you can expect Him to care. He counts, and He cares.
Revealer/ Spirit of Truth, (John 14:17; 16:13; 1 Corinthians 2:12-16) Jesus promised that, after the resurrection, the Holy Spirit would come to “guide you into all truth.” The Spirit reveals to us that God is “foolishness” to them to have no relationship, and they refuse to understand it. But we who have the mind of Christ in the Person of His Spirit within us receive the blessing, and for this, we give Him thanksgiving. For the hearing of our stressed voices, we give Him praise for His goodness. We decree and declare the blessing (the indwelling of the Holy Spirit) upon those who are stimulated by the relationship with God through Jesus Christ by the Holy Spirit, so that; the bridge of Hope will awaken in the hearts of the ungodly. Now, for the Kingdom and Glory of God, we petition, with anointing, in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and Savior, Amen.
