The Strength of The Lord - 5

Psalm 41:1-4

[[To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.]] Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the LORD will deliver him in time of trouble. The LORD will preserve him, and keep him alive; and he shall be blessed upon the earth: and thou wilt not deliver him unto the will of his enemies. The LORD will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing: thou wilt make all his bed in his sickness. I said, LORD, be merciful unto me: heal my soul; for I have sinned against thee.

The "bed of languishing" is an uncommon phrase and therefore raises the point of understanding. The Lord will strengthen us upon our bed of languishing: thou wilt make all his bed in his sickness (Psalm 41:3). The word languish means to be feeble, weak, enervated (drained of energy), much like the effects of Covid-19 or the flu. Engage the whole passage (Psalm 41:1-4) to decipher the connection. We emphasize the blessing as the indwelling of the Holy Spirit when it is connected with the work of the Lord (2 Corinthians 3:17). The Lord respects all who consider those who are in need, and he strengthens them on their bed of anguish (Job 29:16, Psalm 112:9). Charles Spurgeon says God is considerate and has an indefatigable kindness as He makes our bed comfortable. Will your acts of kindness cause the Lord to strengthen you?

Immanuel, God with us - Isaiah 7:14; we thank You for being God with us. We praise You for Your strength on our bed of languishing. We declare and decree the blessing (the indwelling of the Holy Spirit) upon those who care for the poor; so that, the bed of our languish will be comforted by the Lord. Now, for the Kingdom and Glory of God, we petition, with the anointing of the Holy Ghost, in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and Savior, Amen.
