Psalm 105:4

The scripture for today is Psalm 105:4


Psalms 105:4 Seek the LORD, and His strength: seek His face evermore.


The issues that we confront daily, in a world immersed in darkness and evil, requires a strength greater than our own. We need supernatural strength to stand in the midst of trials, temptations and opposition.  Fortunately, that strength is available to us; God gives it freely to those who seek Him. 


We are on a journey and the path we walk sometimes gets difficult. The road is not always smooth and it is often against stiff resistance from the enemy that we stand in truth and continue to go forward. When confronted by the approach of Pharaoh's army behind them and the Red Sea in front of them, the children of Israel were filled with fear. And Moses said to the people, "Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever. The LORD will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace." And the LORD said to Moses, "Why do you cry to Me? Tell the children of Israel to go forward." Exodus 14:13-15  God had already heard the prayers of His people. He brought them out of Egypt through a mighty display of His power and deliverance. But in the midst of a great trial they became fearful and began to respond out of that fear instead of standing in faith. But God, who is always watching over His people, provided His strength when they had none. He delivered them once again by His mighty power. His strength is always more than enough to save His people.


Like the children of Israel, we too have been delivered from bondage. God has sent His Son to rescue us. Jesus came to earth, and by His mighty power defeated the enemy, rising from the dead to proclaim His victory over sin and death. That victory has been given to us, His children. The same Savior who delivered us from the bondage of sin and eternal death, will deliver us from the forces of evil who come against us while we are on our journey home. We are going home!  And we are not going home with our hearts heavy and our heads hung down. We are going home in the strength and victory of the lord. "Seek the LORD, and His strength: seek His face evermore."


God bless you as you continue in His service.
