A Mighty Fortress

Thank You, Father, for every aspect of yesterday’s services. Your presence in preparation to the last “Amen” of the last service. I am so grateful that you take the little I have to offer and You choose to use it and adding Yourself into the equation the little is multiplied exponentially All the praise surely goes to You. The old song rings true, “Little Is Much When God Is in It.”

Hebrews 4:15 (<<click here)

Temptation – what an all-inclusive unifier of the entirety of humanity.  Every person to ever walk the face of this earth has had to deal with it – and You, Lord, are no exception. And we all have failed, many times over, to not yield to its many allures – with one great exception, and that is You, Lord – Only You, in Your perfection, had the fortitude to withstand every assault that was leveled upon You.

Jesus I am oh so weak and my propensity to yield to the temptations that come my way is absolutely HUGE! My only hope is found in my relationship with You.

In and of myself I am utterly incapable of success but, praise Your holy name! You understand – You can relate because quite literally, You have walked in our shoes and have been victorious! Today and every day I come to You, I stand with You – for again that is where my strength is. When I keep my eyes on You I can overcome anything that crosses my path.

Martin Luther surely got it right! “A mighty fortress is our God, a bulwark never failing; our help in He, amid the flood of mortal ills prevailing…” Thank You, Lord, for being that “mighty Fortress” for me, I would be lost without You!
