Proverbs 15:3 ” The eyes of the Lord are everywhere, keeping watch on the wicked and the good.”

I look at the unethical and immoral activity in the world today and I think to myself, “God, don’t You see this and aren’t You going to do something?”  It’s then that He gently reminds me that, #1…God doesn’t see as we do. (Job 10:4) and #2…His eyes are on the ways of men, He sees their every step. (Job 34:21)  The wicked of this world may think they’re getting away with their evilness…but God is still watching.  And in the end, Hebrews 4:13 tells us, “Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight.  Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.”  There is coming a day of reckoning for all of us…the good as well as the bad…the righteous as well as the unrighteous.

Luke 1:37 ” For nothing is impossible with God.”

God is mighty and strong on our behalf.  There is nothing that God can’t do.  In addressing the Lord, Jeremiah stated, “Nothing is too hard for You.” (Jeremiah 32:17)   The Creator of heaven and earth is not confined to time, place or our limited reasoning.  For our mighty God can attain the unattainable…make the impossible possible, and take the out of the question and answer it with a miracle.

II Chronicles 20:15 “He said: ‘Listen, King Jehoshaphat and all who live in Judah and Jerusalem! This is what the Lord says to you: Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s.’ “

In so many struggles we can find ourselves totally defenseless…outmanned and outmaneuvered.  And as the fighting escalates, we are worn down and demoralized by the toll it takes on us…mentally, physically, and spiritually.   For when you are ill-equipped for battle…you have no chance.  Why then do we think we have to do all the fighting,  when God tells us He’s got our back?  Spiritual warfare is His specialty, not ours.  All He asks of us is to stand and watch Him work.  For in Psalm 91:7-8 says, “A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.  You will only observe with your eyes…”

Psalm 18:1 ” I love You, O Lord, my strength.”

I praise You Lord.  For when I am weak, You are my source of power.  When I am frail in mind and spirit, You support me and give me endurance.  When I feel feeble and ready to give up, You reinforce my backbone and give me toughness  to move ahead.  In Exodus 15:2 it says, “The Lord is my strength and my song.  He has become my salvation.”  I will make music in my heart, for You have given me victory on all sides.  Amen.

Psalm 107: 8-9 ” Let them give thanks to the Lord for His unfailing love and His wonderful deeds for men, for He satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things. “

We all need spiritual sustenance, because we all have a God-shaped hole inside that needs to be filled.  This inner hunger and thirst for God propels us forward in His Way and supports us in times of trials.  Life is sustained by food…but our spiritual life is nourished and maintained by the word of God.

Jeremiah 3:12 ” ‘Return, faithless Israel,’ declares the Lord, ‘I will frown on you no longer, for I am merciful,’ declares the Lord, ‘I will not be angry forever. Only acknowledge your guilt.’ “

In God’s perfect plan,  not one  human-being would experience Hell and  eternal death.  But  He’s also not sitting up in heaven with a big sledge hammer,  relishing the thought of punishing sinners.  Quite the opposite, for in II Peter 3:9 it says, “The Lord is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”  Our Lord is graciously waiting for all to turn to Him…but we have to make the first move…not only admitting our sin, but accepting responsibility and confessing… we need You,  Lord.

II Kings 19:31 ” The zeal of the Lord Almighty will accomplish this.”

Isaiah talks about the zeal of the Lord six times in the Bible.  God’s zeal…His passion, intensity, and fire for His people is evident in the countless times that He intervened on their behalf….achieving miracles only God could perform.  The zeal of the Lord Almighty is still working on our behalf today…carrying out His will for His people.
