The Joy Of The Lord Is My Strength!
There are seven things – the God who is more than enough – said He will do for the person who sets his love upon Him…
“Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I…
- Deliver him
- I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
- He shall call upon me, and I will answer him
- I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him,
- And honor him
- With long life will I satisfy him, and
- show him my salvation.”
We need to understand the importance of the simple phrase “I will” or “I shall.”
A translator for the U.S. Government during World War I. He was recognized as the leading Hebrew and Greek scholar of his day. He said, “There are some things in the Greek – and this would be true in some cases in the Hebrew – for which we have no idiom in the English language.”
“For instance,” he said, “here in John’s Gospel the 14th chapter, where Jesus said, ‘whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do,’ the King James Version says simply, ‘I will.’”
“Now, the translators felt they ought to use either ‘I will’ or ‘I shall,’ because that is the strongest assertion you can make in the English language. You can’t say anything stronger than ‘I will do it,’ or ‘I shall do it.’ The translators thought they should make it the strongest assertion that can be made in English.”
I’ll Make It For You
In the original Greek This is what it literally says:
“If you will ask anything in My Name, if I don’t have it, I’ll make it for you”!
“I’ll make it for you”! And, thank God, He can. Because He is El Shaddai – the God who is more than enough!
God always has been a prayer-answering God. All through the Bible, God said, “I will answer.”
Jeremiah 33:3 says, “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and might things, which though knowest not.”
In Isaiah 43:25,26, God said, “I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.”
Remind Him of His Promises!
Remind Him of His promises! Remind Him of His Word!
1 Peter 3:10
“For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile.”
Join me in this prayer:
In the name of Jesus, we declare our love for God, our Heavenly Father. We ask You for each one of your children that You DELIVER HIM! Lord, set them on high, answer them, be with them, honor them, give Your faithful servants long life, and show them Your salvation. Amen.”
Our prayer is for peace and abundance to be upon you.
