Gift Of Strength

The Lord will give strength unto his people; the Lord will bless his people With peace. (Psalm 29:11) David had just heard the voice of the Lord in a thunderstorm and had seen His Power in the hurricane whose path he had described; and now, in the cool calm After the storm, that overwhelming power by which heaven and earth are shaken is Promised to be the strength of the chosen. He who wings the unerring bolt will Give to His redeemed the wings of eagles; He who shakes the earth with His voice Will terrify the enemies of His saints and give His children peace. Why are we Weak when we have divine strength to flee to? Why are we troubled when the Lord's own peace is ours? Jesus, the mighty God, is our strength; let us put Him on and go forth to our service. Jesus, our blessed Lord, is also our peace; Let us repose in Him this day and end our fears. What a blessing to have Him for Our strength and peace both now and forever! That same God who rides upon the storm in days of tempest will also rule the Hurricane of our tribulation and send us, before long, days of peace. We shall Have strength for storms and songs for fair weather. Let us begin to sing at Once unto God, our strength and our peace. Away, dark thoughts! Up, faith and Hope!

In the dark of the midnight have I oft hid my face, while the storm howls above me and there is no hiding place. Mid the crash of the thunder precious Lord hear my cry, keep me safe 'til the storm passes by. Yes, we can sing during the storms of life, knowing that God is always faithful to His promises, and never will He forsake us nor leave us. I am thankful that I am strong today and seeing your post today means that you are given the gift of strength!
