'The LORD Liveth; and Blessed be my Rock; and let the God of my Salvation be Exalted.' (Ps.18:46) Most Merciful Master, Thank You for Your Grace in our Lives. Your Compassions are a Blessing, and a Great Joy to our Hearts.
Our God Most Caring and Kind, we Lift to You our Dear Troops. We Commit their Safety and Wellbeing to Jesus Christ. For them we Pray Psalm 138:7,8: 'Though I Walk in the Midst of Trouble, You Preserve my Life; You Stretch Out Your Hand against the Anger of my Foes; with Your Right Hand You Save me. The LORD will Fulfill His Purpose for me; Your Love, O LORD, Endures Forever.'
Your Majesty, we Pray for Spiritual Renewal throughout our Land. We Need Thee, our Merciful Lord, to Save us from the Judgments we Richly Deserve. May Thy Sovereign Grace Overtake us, and Unmerited Favor Give us New Life. Please Forgive our Sins, O Lord of Boundless Love. We Ask Special Blessings for Every American Hero Working to Rescue our Land. Thou Knowest them All, our Abba; Please Uphold them with a Mighty Hand. Please be their Strength, and Wrap them in Thy Tender Care. Most Blessed and Faithful Savior, we Give You Thanksgiving and Praise.
Our Father, how we Long for the Return of Thy Son. We Look Forward to an Eternity of Wonderful Deeds Done by our King. 'Behold, I am Creating New Heavens and a New Earth, So Wonderful that No One will Even Think about the Old Ones Anymore. Be Glad; Rejoice Forever in what I will Create.' (Is.65:17,18) We Rejoice, our Awesome Lord! May You be Exalted for All Time, Without End.
Thank You for Hearing us, Dear Father and Lord of our Hearts. In Jesus' Name, for the Glory of Heaven's King, amen.
The Israelites were trapped. Soon after leaving slavery and Egypt behind, they looked up and saw a distressing sight. A cloud of dust was moving their way, and in that dust was a massive army. Pharaohs disease had returnedhardening of the heart (Ex. 14:8). As a result, he sent his chariots after Moses and his people.
Once the Egyptian army caught up with the Israelites, all seemed lost. They were trapped between a wall of soldiers and a sea of water. In panic, they cried out to both Moses and God.
Both of them responded with instructions. Moses said, Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord. (14:13). And God told them, Go forward (v.15). While that may seem to be contradictory advice, both commands were from God and right. First, the people had to stand still or firm long enough to get instructions from God. What if they had rushed headlong into the Red Sea without consulting the Lord? But in standing still, they heard Gods instructions, which included both what they were to domove on, and what Moses was to dostretch out his hand over the sea in obedience and God would part the waters.
Do circumstances have you trapped? Stand still. Take time to consult God and His Word. Then, using His instructions, move ahead and let God guide you.
Read: Exodus 14:5-22
Praying with all of you for our Military, past and present, and our beloved Nation.
Thank You for leading us in prayer today. Amen to every word!
Isaiah 6;8. “Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, who will stand us?” “And I replied , “Here am I, send me’’ This is the motto for the Army’s Spartan Brigade, 3rd Inf./ Mechanized who captured Baghdad . It speaks for all of our troops because it is they who answer Gods call to defend our great nation, God bless them all.
Amen...Joining with you in prayer for all our Heroes and our Nation.
