STRENGTH AND PRAISE

March 23, 2020

STRENGTH AND PRAISE 

Our hearts need to wait upon God, our strength.
Then God can be our strength. 
Then when we realise that He was our strength, we can rejoice. 
Then because of His strength we can break out into praise. 
Psalm 59:17 'To You, O my strength, I sing praises!' 
In the previous verse, Psalm 59:16 it says: 'But I will sing of Your strength, and proclaim Your loving devotion in the morning.'
In the face of danger and trouble, David could sing. 
It takes Divine Strength to be able to sing in the face of danger, trouble and pending doom. 
When King Saul sent assassins to David's house, he was open about his desire to kill David. From then on, for the next many years (perhaps 10 to 15 years), David lived as a fugitive, constantly in danger of his life. It's interesting that David entered that period singing praises and was still able to pour out his heart to God in song at the end of that period (2 Samuel 1:17-27). 
You see, David was confident that with the Lord as His strength, he would survive the night and live to tell the tale of God's faithfulness and love in the morning. 
This he did, day by day, until, many years later, he was victorious, the battle was over, and he became king. 

So:
1. Make the Lord your strength.
2. Wait and watch for the Lord in your situation. Don't rush in where angels fear to tread.
3. Put God and His strength between you and those things that would like to destroy you.
4. Break out in praise and shift the focus from your issues to Him and His strength.
5. Get ready to rejoice and to tell the story of how faithful God has been to you!
