My God Is An Awesome God
Sometimes when under attack from the adversary, it appears that your problem is larger then anyone else. I receive a prayer request early this morning to pray to the one True and Living God who is my God in faith that Bro. Dennis health would be restored so that he could continue spreading the glorious gospel of Christ which is God’s “power of salvation”. Dennis distributes “Good News books” at no cost and his ministry is much needed to this dying world in which we live. Here is what was on my heart for a plea of help to my/our God.
Psalm 31:14-18 (NLT)
14 But I am trusting you, O LORD, saying, “You are my God!”
15 My future is in your hands. Rescue me from those who hunt me down relentlessly.
16 Let your favor shine on your servant. In your unfailing love, rescue me.
17 Don’t let me be disgraced, O LORD, for I call out to you for help. Let the wicked be disgraced; let them lie silent in the grave.
18 Silence their lying lips— those proud and arrogant lips that accuse the godly.
Psalm 31:14-18 (NIV)
14 But I trust in you, O LORD; I say, “You are my God.”
15 My times are in your hands; deliver me from my enemies and from those who pursue me.
16 Let your face shine on your servant; save me in your unfailing love.
17 Let me not be put to shame, O LORD, for I have cried out to you; but let the wicked be put to shame and lie silent in the grave.
18 Let their lying lips be silenced, for with pride and contempt they speak arrogantly against the righteous.
When the adversary is beating you down in his pathways of the mind, heart and will trying to create in your heart a “hopelessness stronghold” we must continued to be “gripped” by the love of Chris Jesus and tell our soul the reality of our situation.
I am hurting and in pain but: I am trusting you O Lord. You are my refuge and strength and a present help in the time of my troubles. You O Lord are the rock of my salvation and I know that You are a rewarder of those who trust in You and they will not be ashame.
I am hurting and the news I am receiving about my physical condition is “bleak” from a humans point of view but: I know that you are My God and I have not put the gods of this world before you. I have live by faith since you redeemed me by the precious blood of your dear Son…the Lord Jesus Christ.
I have this confidence in You, Father that “my times are in your hands”, You only hold my future. You hold my destiny in Your hands. “I am persuaded that nothing can separate me from Your love that is in Christ Jesus.
So dear Lord I pray that you will “ let Your favor shine on your servant, in Your unfailing love rescue me”. Dear Father in heaven, rescue Bro Dennis from his sickness so that he is able to finish the “good work” that You started in him. Phil 1:6
