Meditate with Power!


God Understands!


Romans 8:26  Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses.


Meditate with Power! The greatest prayers in life are those that are made from a broken heart because God understands. .  Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. 27 Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God. Romans 8:26-27


God’s Holy Spirit is interceding for you in your time of need at this very moment in time. God understands.  No trial, pain, hurt, sorrow or temptation is beyond the reach of the ear of God. No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it I Corinthians 10:13


God fully understands the pain, hurt and sorrow that you going through because Jesus endured all, to the point of death for us. Therefore, in all things He had to be made like Hisbrethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. 18 For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted. Hebrews 2:17-18


Come to the One who can help you, love you and strengthen you, no matter what your need is today! The God who is there, Jehovah Shammah!   For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted aswe are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:15-16

Meditate with Power!



Let God Heal You!



Psalm 30:5   Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning.  


Meditate with Power!  Sometimes the sadness and struggles come late at night when everything is quiet and we are alone. This is the time to reach out to God and to let His Holy Spirit minister to us. It is good to be honest with God, He understands. I cried out to You, O Lord; And to the Lord I made supplication: “What profit is there in my blood, When I go down to the pit? Will the dust praise You? Will it declare Your truth? 10 Hear, O Lord, and have mercy on me; Lord, be my helper!” Psalm 30:8-9

The Holy Spirit intercedes for us every moment of every day.  Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. 27 Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God. Romans 8:26-27

We have been given the rights as children of God to call out to Him, anytime of the day or night.   For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” 16 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 17 and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together. Romans 8:16-17

Let God heal you today through the power of the Holy Spirit and turn your sadness into joy!  You have turned for me my mourning into dancing;  You have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness, 12 To the end that my glory may sing praise to You and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever. Psalm 30:11-12 God’s promise, guaranteed!

Meditate with Power!



Crying Out to God!



Psalm 84:8-9   O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer; Give ear, O God of Jacob! Selah O God, behold our shield, And look upon the face of Your anointed.  


Meditate with Power!  There will be times in our lives where we are just over whelmed by the circumstances of life. Where the only thing we feel is sorrow for others and maybe even for ourselves. This is the time we need to turn to God’s Word for the comfort that only God can give. Sing praise to the Lord, you saints of His, And give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name. For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning. Psalm 30:4-5

Praise is the only thing that can break the chains of sorrow through the power of the Holy Spirit. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. II Corinthians 1:3-4

It is through suffering that we are perfected by the will of God and the hand of God that we may comfort others. For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also abounds through Christ. Now if we are afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is effective for enduring the same sufferings which we also suffer. Or if we are comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation. And our hope for you is steadfast, because we know that as you are partakers of the sufferings, so also you will partake of the consolation. II Corinthians 1:6-7

Let God use the suffering, sadness and sorrow to mold you into a person who can support and love others that He has put in your life. You are the hands of Jesus in a world looking for the love, mercy and grace of God that God is using to reach a lost world.  Wherefore in all things it pleased Him to be made like unto his brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people. 18 For in that He himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to comfort them that are tempted. Hebrews 2:17-18 Let Jesus comfort you today!

God’s Blessings!



Psalm 84:11   For the Lord God is a sun and shield; The Lord will give grace and glory; No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.
  

Meditate with Power!  If you are reading this lesson today, give God thanks and appreciation that you are able to see Him work in your life today. King David, who went through great adversity, challenges and blessings would just flow over with his gratefulness to God. For the Lord God is a sun and shield; The Lord will give grace and glory; No good thing will He withhold From those who walk uprightly. 12 O Lord of hosts, Blessed is the man who trusts in You! Psalm 84:10-11
  

In this powerful psalm David cried out to God from the depth of his heart and soul. How lovely is Your tabernacle, O Lord of hosts! My soul longs, yes, even faints For the courts of the Lord; My heart and my flesh cry out for the living God. Psalm 84:1-2 David knew where the source of his strength came from in his life.Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, Whose heart is set on pilgrimage. As they pass through the Valley of Baca, They make it a spring; The rain also covers it with pools. They go from strength to strength; Each one appears before God in Zion. Psalm 84:6-7


At the end of the day King David knew that it was through prayer and praise that God was his shield and the source of everything in his life. O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer; Give ear, O God of Jacob! Selah O God, behold our shield, And look upon the face of Your anointed. Psalm 84:8-9 Let God be your blessing and your shield today as you yield your life to Him today!

Meditate with Power!



Faith in God!!



Psalm 84:10  For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God Than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.


Meditate with Power!  Stop today for a moment and just thank God for everything He has given you.  A sure way to defeat depression, discouragement and sadness. In the end even if we love everything we win! For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God Than to dwell in the tents of wickedness. 11 For the Lord God is a sun and shield; The Lord will give grace and glory; No good thing will He withhold From those who walk uprightly. 12 O Lord of hosts, Blessed is the man who trusts in You! Psalm 84:10-11 


Every good and perfect gift comes from God!  God created us to be a witness for His grace and His mercy!  Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. 18 Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures. James 1:17-18


Just praise and bless the name of God and of Jesus! Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, 11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:9-11 We are here to give God the glory and to edify the name of Jesus, nothing more, nothing less. Everything else will pass away but what you do for the Lord will be remembered forever! Get lost in the wonder of God and you never know what God will do!

Meditate with Power!



Understanding and Seeing God’s Power!



Job 42:5  “I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, But now my eye sees You.


Meditate with Power!  Realize that every second, minute, hour, day, week, month and year are a gift from God. When you begin to get even a glimpse of the power of God, you will be stopped cold as Job was by the wonder, the power and the magnitude of God’s glory.   “I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, But now my eye sees You. Therefore I abhor myself, And repent in dust and ashes.” Job 42:5-6  


God stopped Job cold when He asked Job a series of short questions. Have you an arm like God? Or can you thunder with a voice like His? 10 Then adorn yourself with majesty and splendor, And array yourself with glory and beauty. 11 Disperse the rage of your wrath; Look on everyone who is proud, and humble him. 12 Look on everyone who is proud, and bring him low; Tread down the wicked in their place. 13 Hide them in the dust together, Bind their faces in hidden darkness. 14 Then I will also confess to you That your own right hand can save you. Job 40:10-14
 

All Job could do when he realized the power of God was to repent and to give God the glory He deserves. The only thing that is even greater than His power is His grace toward those who turn to Him in humility and repentance. For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God Than dwell in the tents of wickedness. 11 For the Lord God is a sun and shield; The Lord will give grace and glory; No good thing will He withhold
From those who walk uprightly. 12 O Lord of hosts, Blessed is the man who trusts in You! Psalm 84:10-11
Get lost in the wonder of God, thank Him, praise Him and glorify the name of Jesus and you never know what God will do!  In the word of King Jehoshaphat.  You will not need to fight in this battle. Position yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord, who is with you, O Judah and Jerusalem!’ Do not fear or be dismayed; tomorrow go out against them, for the Lord is with you.” 2 Chronicles 2:17

God’s Infinite Blessings!



Job 42:12  Now the Lord blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning.


Meditate with Power!  The most amazing thing is that at the end of Job’s life he was blessed more than anyone could ever imagine. Job was tested like no man has ever been tested, he heard God speak directly to him and saw God’s hand on his life. Job is an excellent example to all of us today to just thank God, no matter what is happening in your life. Then Job answered the Lord and said: “I know that You can do everything, And that no purpose of Yours can be withheld from You. You asked, ‘Who is this who hides counsel without knowledge?’ Therefore I have uttered what I did not understand, Things too wonderful for me, which I did not know. Listen, please, and let me speak; You said, ‘I will question you, and you shall answer Me.’ “I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, But now my eye sees You. Therefore I abhor myself, And repent in dust and ashes.” Job 42:1-6

When Job realized God’s hand, he just repented and just thanked God. A good place to be. When you look back and look up to thank God, things change when we just praise and thank God as Job did, God will defend you. And so it was, after the Lord had spoken these words to Job, that the Lord said to Eliphaz the Temanite, “My wrath is aroused against you and your two friends, for you have not spoken of Me what is right, as My servant Job has. Now therefore, take for yourselves seven bulls and seven rams, go to My servant Job, and offer up for yourselves a burnt offering; and My servant Job shall pray for you. For I will accept him, lest I deal with you according to your folly; because you have not spoken of Me what is right, as My servant Job has. Job 42:7-8

Job friends who accused him of sin and of being disloyal to God, are now corrected by God. It is always better to let God defend you. When you step into the place of praise and thanksgiving, you never know what God will do! We find the key in this simple short verse.  So Eliphaz the Temanite and Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite went and did as the Lord commanded them; for the Lord had accepted Job. Job 42:9 So stop and get lost in the wonder of God and just praise His holy name as you go through life and watch what God will do! He will bless you beyond your imagination, forgive and even bless those that have hurt you as you just praise God!
