The Lord Is Your Strength

Psalm 27:1-5

Memory Verse:
“The Lord is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The Lord isthe strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?” (Psalm 27:1).

David, in Psalm 27, confessed who the source of his hope, confidence,  strength and boldness was. He recognised that through all the ups and downs of his life in the wilderness with the flock, while
confronting the dreaded Goliath, running from king Saul and, even when he fled from Absalom, his son, it was the Lord who helped him. David urged the Lord to continue to help him and so should you. He pleaded that God should keep him, even if all others, including his parents, forsook
him. He was willing to obediently seek the face of the Lord and coveted His continuous presence (Psalms 27:7-9). He knew that it was by His mercies that he was not consumed and we must remember that in order to make our lives and hearts habitable for Him (Lamentations 3:22).
Do you remember Samson? The man endued with the Spirit of God and power from his mother’s womb but who messed around with sin until the Lord departed from him? With the Lord’s departure went his strength (Judges 16:20). He failed to recognise that the Lord was the source of his strength and exploits and, so, lost it.
Sometimes we foolishly forget that the Lord is our source and that without Him we can do nothing. We forget that the very breath in our nostrils comes from Him! It is the Lord’s presence with you that makes the difference. It is by His grace that you are excelling. Do not force Him to leave you weak and vulnerable.

Prayer Points:
1. Lord, please forgive me for failing to recognise Your help in my life.
2. I ask that my heart will be habitable for You continually
