Psalm 69_30


Mighty To Save

Mighty To Save

I did not have anything that God has really placed on my heart to write about this week, but I have had a song on my heart for several days. It is the song, “Mighty To Save.” Here are the lyrics to it:

Everyone needs compassion
A love that’s never failing
Let mercy fall on me
Everyone needs forgiveness
A kindness of a Savior
The hope of nations
He can move the mountains
My God is Mighty to save
He is Mighty to save
Author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave
Jesus conquered the grave
So take me as You find me
All my fears and failures
Fill my life again
I give my life to follow
Everything I believe in
Now I surrender
Shine your light and let the whole world see
We’re singing for the glory of the risen King? Jesus
Left my fear by the side of the road
Hear You speak
Won’t let go
Fall to my knees as I lift my hands to pray
Got every reason to be here again
Father’s love that draws me in
And all my eyes wanna see is a glimpse of You
All I
All I need is You
All I need is You Lord
Is you Lord
One more day and it’s not the same
Your spirit calls my heart to sing
Drawn to the voice of my Savior once again
Where would my soul be without Your Son
Gave His life to save the earth
Rest in the thought that You’re watching over me
All I need is You
All I need is You Lord
Is You Lord
You hold the universe
You hold everyone on earth
You hold the universe
You hold
You hold
All I need is You
All I need is You Lord
Is You Lord

No matter what you are going through or have had to go through in your past, no matter what you have done in your past, God is there for you and can save you. Jesus paid the price of dying on the cross for all of your sins. He then rose from the dead. If He can conquer death in His own life, He can conquer death and sin in your life also.
Seek the Lord, while He may be found, because He is all you need. He is mighty to save!
Along with seeking the Lord for your own life, get out there and tell someone else about Jesus. Let the whole world know that Jesus is mighty to save!

Psalm 57:7 Making Music In Troubled Times

My heart, O God, is steadfast, my heart is steadfast; I will sing and make music. Psalm 57:7

During times of trouble and hardship, very few people find reason to be happy or to sing joyfully. It is at those times that many people start to sing the blues and complain about what is happening.

Along with singing the blues, many start to have fear in their hearts. The results of that fear is the heartbeat goes up and is no longer steady, causing some health concerns. All they see is trouble and danger ahead, because all they can see is what is immediately in front of them.

Some of these troubles are things that directly affect the individual. Other troubles are those things that people see in news or hear about from someone else. All over the news, all over the world, trouble can be seen. Many are living in fear of the problems that are occurring.

Believers in Jesus should have a different view. Just as God was in front of the Israelites in the wilderness, so He will be in front of every believer today. God is unchanging and steady. Jesus is the rock that is solid and will not be moved by any event in this world.

Keeping the eyes on Jesus will allow the believer to have a reason to sing and make music. Jesus had overcome death and sin, so there is nothing that He cannot do or overcome.

As you turn your eyes on Jesus, you will be able to sing a song of praise and make music to Him, regardless of what is happening in your life. You will see that God is in control. Those troubles will no longer seem as large and scary anymore in light of Him.

As you sing and make music to God, it will also help you keep your focus on Him even more. In doing this, it will calm your heart and keep it steady.

Sing a song of praise to God today. Sing a song you already know, or make up a new song from your heart. He is worthy of all praise!

I pray today that you will focus on God in your life; that God’s love will remove all fear; that you will have a song of praise to sing today; and your heart will be calm in God’s presence.
