TOPIC: THE LORD STRONG AND MIGHTY
MEMORISE: “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.” – (Revelation 1:8)
READ: Psalm 24:7-10 (KJV)
7. Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
8. Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.
9. Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
10. Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.
Many Christians are fearful in the face of attacks from the kingdom of darkness. This attitude is unlike that of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in Babylon. These young Hebrew men knew their God to be strong and mighty and they made bold to declare this to King Nebuchadnezzar (Daniel 3:16-18).
Our God is strong and mighty in battle. He has never lost and can never lose any war. As I have preached on many occasions, our God is a war-Lord on land, according to (2 Chronicles 20:22-23). Also, He is more effective than any Chief of Naval Staff when it comes to sea battles, according to Exodus 14:23-31.
The Lord Strong and mighty is more effective than any Chief of Air Staff when it comes to offensive air battles, according to Isaiah 30:30. This was proven in the battle He fought on behalf of the children of Israel under the leadership of Joshua in Joshua 10:11: And it came to pass, as they fled from before Israel, and were in the going down to Bethhoron, that the Lord cast down great stones from heaven upon them unto Azelcah, and they died: they were more which died with hailstones than they whom the children of Israel slew with the sword.
You have no reason to fear any attack of the enemies. The Psalmist says:
The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? – Psalm 27:1. Isaiah 59:20 gives the condition that guarantees divine defence for the children of God: “…unto them that turn from transgression…” The Lord can only fight on behalf of those who have reconciled with Him through genuine repentance.
Sin exposes an individual to enemy attacks without any spiritual defence, according to Isaiah 59:1-2. Therefore, ensure that your life is void of any iniquity that could make you vulnerable to the attack of the enemy. Our God is The Lord Strong and Mighty, The Lord Mighty in Battle, according to Psalm 24:8. This is the testimony of every true child of God. The Lord will prove Himself strong and mighty on your behalf now and always, in Jesus’ name.
PRAYER POINT: Father, please show Yourself strong and mighty in my life, that my enemies may fear, repent and surrender to Your authority, in the mighty name of Jesus.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Ecclesiastes 6-9
HYMN 14 – JESUS, MY LORD, MY GOD, MY ALL
1. Jesus, my Lord, my God, my all,
Hear me, blest Saviour, when I call;
Hear me, and from Thy dwelling place
Pour down the riches of Thy grace;
Jesus, my Lord, I Thee adore;
O make me love Thee more and more.
2. Jesus, too late I Thee have sought;
How can I love Thee as I ought?
And how extol Thy matchless fame,
The glorious beauty of Thy name?
3. Jesus, what didst Thou find in me,
That Thou hast dealt so lovingly?
How great the joy that Thou hast brought
So far exceeding hope or thought!
4. Jesus, of Thee shall be my song,
To Thee my heart and soul belong;
All that I have or am is Thine,
And Thou, blest Saviour, Thou art mine.
