1 I love the Lord, because He has heard my voice and my supplications.
2 Because He has inclined His ear to me, therefore I will call upon Him as long as I live.
Today’s Inspiration: The global pandemic is an indication of the world being in darkness and there is fear on every side as threats of the evil one send pains of death to surround them and as the pangs of Sheol laid hold of them and trouble and sorrow is on every side. Psalm 116:3. As the Body of Christ, whose Lord is the Lord of refuge, who will bring us to safety, we should not fear. Instead like David, we should give thanks to the Lord for Deliverance from death as we follow Him in Psalm 116:1-2 to love the Lord our God because He has heard our voice and supplications and because God has inclined His ears to us therefore we should call upon Him as long as we live.
It is at this point of being stuck on the crossroad without knowing where to turn, that we have to die to self in total surrender to the Lord, doing nothing but to surrender our total life to Him and allow Him to direct us. It is at this point that we needed so much a Savior for the whole wide world and hence our thoughts should switch to appreciating the Lord for His sacrificial love on the cross that we be reconciled to God and be at peace with Him. Let us be thankful to God for loving us so much that He sent His one and only Son to die on the cross that through His chastisement we have peace with God.
Dying to Self and taking on the life of Christ is the solution at this time. Behind all these confusion, is a call to meditation to hear the NOW word for you to reflect on the calling of God to be His witness and to pray for the salvation of the Nations.
So offer your sacrifices of Thanksgiving to the Lord and calling upon the Lord today for His desires should be our portion at this point of time. V17. As a church we truly need the word of knowledge to deliver us.
Let us declare our praises to the Lord for the salvation of our friends and relatives and praise Him for His merciful kindness towards us. His mercy and love, which are the truth of the Lord that endures forever. Psalm 117. We have been too busy at work and at activities that we have not placed our devotion as priority in our life. If He is our guide for all our life, all the more we need to be devoted to Him.
As Peter asked Jesus’To whom shall we go? You have the word of Truth.’ So whilst we stay at home, let us meditate on Psalm 116 &117 for the Lord to speak to us this morning as His dear children imploring for His grace to deliver the Nations from this calamity today. It’s when the devil launches his fiercest attack that we know we are on the brink of a breakthrough but we need to pray like never before for His Deliverance in expectation of a miraculous breakthrough. Let’s also use Psalm 118 for our prayer besides Psalm 91 during this time of fasting towards the Passover celebration. God has promised us Deliverance from captivity in Galatians 5:1, Psalm 116:1. So let’s stand upon the promises of God, which is our sure foundation. God be praised.
