Troubled Times (COVID-19 pandemic series)
The following Bible verses on being strong show us biblical examples of strength and the faith it takes to trust in God so completely that He is your strength. Imagine how much faith it took for Abraham to be willing to sacrifice his long-awaited son Isaac.
He Knows Your Lane
1 Peter 4:11
If any man speak, [let him speak] as the oracles of God; if any man minister, [let him do it] as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
The Apostle Peter demonstrates the comfort of staying in your lane. His instructions are clear, whatever ability God has given you, use it to the Glory of God through Jesus Christ. Most of us miss that part, the part that talks about filtering everything we do through Jesus. The Lord, who created us surely knows what we can and can not do, and stretching ourselves in other places, is terrifying, and it's dangerous. If you know your lane, stay in your lane! 1 Corinthians 12:12-18.
El Nekamoth, God that Avenged- Psalm 18:47; in You, we discover our place in the work and in the temple, and we give You our thanks. In a spirit of oneness, we raise our hands and hearts in praise for the assignment You have given us. We declare and decree the blessing (the indwelling of the Holy Spirit) upon those who stay in the Body as it pleases God, so that; being set in our place by the Almighty, we act accordingly. Now, for the Kingdom and Glory of God, we petition, with anointing, in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and Savior, Amen.
