Isaiah 12:2-6 "Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the Lord JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation. Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation. And in that day shall ye say, Praise the Lord, call upon his name, declare his doings among the people, make mention that his name is exalted. Sing unto the Lord; for he hath done excellent things: this is known in all the earth. Cry out and shout, thou inhabitant of Zion: for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of thee."
First of all, let me apologize for the dry spell since my last post. We are in one of the most hardest hit areas from Hurricane Florence and it has been a whirlwind. BUT GOD was merciful! In the midst of it all, we have been praising Him for the great things he has done.
I developed a few sayiings since all this happened. One, "When prayer is all you think you have left, you find out it is all you really need."
We had a gentleman staying with us who ran out of his heart medication that controlled his heart rate. WE PRAYED! And as Isaiah so eloquently stated, "God is my salvation." God kept this man in perfect rhythm for 1 1/2 weeks...GLORY!
The second saying stemmed from the scripture, "The joy of the Lord is my strength." I discovered the following: Out of our sinple act of obedience this joy comes. God speaks or directs; we receive and respond appropriately, and the joy of obedience and its results, give us our strength. This can only come from God Himself! Oh, as Isaiah says many times, Sing unto the Lord and SHOUT!
May all God's people learn this deep and powerful truth. The thief cannot take this from us. It cannot be stolen, it cannot be killed, and it cannot be destroyed; HALLELUJAH! This IS the abundant life in Christ Jesus, Yeshua Hamaschiach!
