‘The Lord is my strength and my shield; My heart trusting in HIm and i am helped; therefore my heart greatly rejoices and with my song I will praise Him…” Psalm 28:7
If you know our family, you know that our daughter, Isaiah, LOVES music- just about any kind. The last couple of years, we spent a lot of time in Japan, and during that stint we took a Gaither Vocal Band DVD titled ‘Reunited’. There’s a song called ‘I will Praise Him’ as performed by the Isaacs…. and it will change you world!!
Our two year old latched on to this song and still hums it around the house. As I was reading this morning, I came across this verse and immediately stopped. The verse right before it says, ‘…Blessed be the Lord b/c He has heard the voice of my supplications!…’ David is saying that God heard his prayers, and w/the next verse, that He is his strength. David trusted God b/c He was his strength… and the end result was that David’s heart was helped. David in turn rejoiced, and w/his songs, he praised.
As you walk this week, there might be some things that you just cant control, like family decisions, friends, health, situations that you have no control over no matter how hard you try. But be encouraged! God will hear your prayers! Run to Him for strength and LET Him be a shield! Trust and know that your heart will be helpd… it will be encouraged and lifted…. and PRAISE Him for it all!!! Let God prove His character to you today and this week… it might surprise you 🙂 please forgive the video quality- it was all i could find w/o asking you to cue something 🙂
