We serve a God of strength and power…

Many people forget it…many preachers make God and Jesus into some kind of cosmic genie, or some kind of being that is able to be manipulated, weak…and fluffy.  Sometimes we just need to be reminded that God is not to be trifled with, and that God is indeed The Almighty.

I was also thinking about all of the passages in the Bible that pertain to singing and praising God, playing instruments and praising and Him and came across this one:

Psalm 21:13 Be thou exalted, LORD, in thine own strength: so will we sing and praise thy power.

Think about this song of David’s.  His call for the LORD to be exalted in His Own strength, so much so that not only will be sing and praise God, but God’s very power.  Yes, I can very well imagine David’s kingly voice sounding forth this Psalm, the angelic host itself paying attention to that line….

Ah, well, just musings…

One response to “We serve a God of strength and power…

    “He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
    Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the LORD, “My refuge and my fortress,
    My God, in whom I trust…” For you have made the LORD, my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place. No evil will befall you, Nor will any plague come near your tent. For He will give His angels charge concerning you, To guard you in all your ways. They will bear you up in their hands, That you do not strike your foot against a stone.” (Psalm 91)

    (Satan, quotes the “striking your foot against a stone” portion of this psalm to Jesus in the desert!)

    This psalm of David held me up for many long months of testing, many years ago. I actually had the entire psalm memorized at that time, because I could sense the power and presence of God in my life when I read it in my mind. The pain and fear would dissipate as David’s words of faith breathed life back into my lungs!

    David, finishes his love song to God with God speaking:

    “Because he has loved Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him securely on high, because he has known My name. “He will call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue him and honor him. “With a long life I will satisfy him And let him see My salvation.”
