".....yet ye have not, because ye ask not." -James 4:2b

 

We often use certain expressions that involve prayer to relay our empathy toward others. Expressions as "praying for you" or "you are in our prayers." Unfortunately, without realizing it we soon turn our empathetic phrases into common pleasantries.

"And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands. And the angel said unto him, Gird thyself, and bind on thy sandals. And so he did. And he saith unto him, Cast thy garment about thee, and follow me." Acts 12:7-8

Blameless PDF Print E-mail

“And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” – 1 Thess. 5:23

 

Here we find Paul’s confidence in the promise that God shall preserve the entire spirit, soul, and body of His elect. The spirit and soul of man go into the presence of God immediately when the saints’ die here in this world. The body will then be glorified and conformed to the image of Jesus Christ at His second coming. Notice another aspect of the final state of our spirit, soul, and body – we shall be “blameless”.

Yet I am not Alone PDF Print E-mail

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?
Psalms 27:1

When I was younger I would pray often for strength from God. The more I studied, the more I noticed the "is" in verses like Psalm 27:1. David wasn't asking for strength, he didn't need strength, "the Lord is the strength of my life." I've gone through many trials in my life, but when I pray I thank God for being my strength. When I was tired and afraid in Basic Military Training, I remember thanking God for being my strength. The first time I went through a weapons certification, stressed and afraid, I remember thanking God for being my strength. The first time I worked on a nuclear weapon, I remember thanking God for being my strength. The time I had to call to Munitions Control to describe the lifeless body of an airman lying on the maintenance bay floor, I remember thanking God for being my strength. Those are just some trials in my military life, not my personal life which have been many. Through them all, God is my strength.

Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me. These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
John 16:32-33

Isn't it a wonderful thing to know we are never alone? Not only is God our strength, God is with us always. We aren't waiting for a savior to overcome the world, He has already overcome the world. God is my strength and He is with me.
