Look to the Lord

  1. Look to the Lord

    Look to the LORD and his strength; seek his face always.
    -- 1 Chronicles 16:11


    After restoring the presence of God to his people through the
    Ark of the Covenant, David and Asaph gave them these verses as a
    song to perpetually remind them of the importance of seeking God
    because ... our strength is found in him ... our grace is from his
    loving presence ... and our hope is in seeing him face to face and
    knowing him even as we are known by him. We must look to the Lord
    and not seek our own way or follow our own path.

    O Lord, I know you created me uniquely as you fashioned me in my
    mother's womb. Yet I know I can never have the freedom or
    creativity in my life that you long for me to discover, unless I
    first seek you and your strength. Please bless me with the
    assurance of your nearness as I seek you with all of my heart and
    use my abilities in creative ways to bring you glory. In Jesus'
    name I pray. Amen.
  2. Yes, God is our strength.
    He uses the foolish to confound the wise and the weak to defeat the strong.

    When a strong man defeats a strong man, he might think it was by his strength. When a weak man defeats a strong man, he gives glory to God, for he knows it was not by his strength.
  3. :amen::amen:Amen, Brother Don.
