But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread our protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you.
— Psalm 5:11
Our hope is in the LORD! He is the basis of our security and the reason for ur joyful songs! He is our protection and hope! He is the reason we rejoice!

God didn’t wait till we were “good enough” to bring us his salvation. Instead, he came when we were most lost and needed his grace the most. But then, that’s what love really means by God’s definition. It’s more than something declared or felt, it’s something radically demonstrated.
“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us”
— Romans 5:8

Isn’t it absolutely incredible that the God who made the universe cares about us and our needs, hurts, and fears! So let’s trust that he will do what is best for us and show it by living for him!
I Peter 5:7 “Cast all your anxiety on Jesus because he cares for you.”

“May God be merciful and bless us.
May His face shine with favour upon us” (Psa 67:2)
Prayer here is more than just asking God to send a revival. It means self-examination and confession of sins. Self-examination means we let the Lord turn His searchlight on us and reveal to us our carnality, corruption and casualness (Rev 2:23). And it’s a time of remembering our broken vows before the Lord (Eccl 5:1-6); and the wrongs we have committed against others (Mt 5:23,24). Prayer leads to true humility because it is in His presence we realize our nothingness and His holiness (Isa 6:1-5). Prayer is also an expression of our inability and inadequacy and therefore a pleading for His strength and power (Mt 26:41). God is pleased with such sacrifices and His fire will invariably fall on them (Psa 51:17-19).
When Elijah repaired the altar of the Lord, the fire fell. God breaks and makes His men on their knees. When Jesus prayed, Heaven was opened (Lk 3:21). When the early Church prayed, the place was shaken (Acts 4:31). Prayer releases the power of the Spirit to affect the earth. I believe we have preached enough about revival and published enough about revival, but have not prayed enough for revival. The more we pray for revival the more we will long for it, and the more we long for it the more we will pray for it. Leonard Ravenhill (1907-1994) rightly says, “One main reason we have no revival is that we have learnt to live without it!”

Nothing is so strong as gentleness, nothing so gentle as real strength.
What bible says about this?
“But a Servant of our Lord ought not to fight, but to be humble toward every person, instructive and long-suffering” II Timothy 2:24

Reading: Psalm 37:1-19
“Wait on the Lord and keep His way” (Psa 37:34)
In God’s Word we are repeatedly commanded to wait on God. But many of us do not know how to do it. Let us learn about this briefly today.
Pour out your heart before God.
Waiting on God is more than just praying. In prayer we essentially present our requests before God and seek His favour for an answer. But while waiting on God we simply open up and throw up ourselves before the Almighty. It is not an exaggeration if I say that waiting on God begins only after presenting our needs before Him in prayer. Waiting for an answer to prayer, especially for guidance, is often part of the answer. Here is David with his testimony and teaching: “Truly my soul silently waits for God alone, for my expectation is from Him. Trust in Him at all times, you people, pour out your heart before Him” (Psa 62:1,5,8). Waiting is the continual communion with God in spirit. It is just waiting on “God alone” (Psa 62:5).
Saturate yourself with the Scriptures.
“I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in His Word do I hope” (Psa 130:5). We must feed richly on the Word of God during seasons of waiting on God. This is what Jesus did during the forty days He spent in the desert before He began His public ministry. God had revealed His plan to young Joseph through dreams. But everything that followed in his life was just the opposite. The imprisonment in Egypt on false charges of sexual misbehaviour provided for him an excellent time to wait on God who never fails His Word. The Word of the Lord tested Joseph until the time came for its fulfilment (Psa 105:19).
Keep on serving God faithfully.
Waiting on God does not mean we stop working for Him. Priest Zacharias kept on serving God till his very old age while waiting for an answer to his prayer for a child (Lk 1:5-14). While going through dry spells in his life and waiting on God, David kept on composing songs for Him which became the Messianic prophecies and promises, like Psalm 69:3. Servants of God down through the ages have testified that they had been soaking their pillows at nights with tears, but God anointed them with the oil of gladness when they stood on the pulpit. This is the power of waiting on God.
Waiting on knees brings us to our journey’s end quicker than walking on foot!

I Peter 5 : 7
“Give all your worries and cares to God,for he cares about what happens to you”
God wants you to place your pain on his shoulders,so he can bear it for you.It is easier to deal with pain when somone is helping you through it,and who can help you through it better than God ?
God is all-powerful and can rescue you from pain.The power of salvation will free you from all pain.
God’s unfailing love and plentiful mercy is like medicine for your pain.

[The Lord says,] “Even to your old age and gray hairs, I am he,
I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you;
I will sustain you and I will rescue you.
— Isaiah 46:4
God will not forget us when we’re in trouble or when we are old.We may outlive our friends and be forgotten by those who know us,but God will never leave us or forsake us. He will sustain, carry,protect, and rescue us.
One thing that you’ve to do today is Believe and Trust Lord Jesus. He will deliver you and meet you in the point of Need.
God Bless You !
