“Observe therefore all the commands I am giving you today, so that you may have the strength to go in and take over the land that you are crossing the Jordan to possess, and so that you may live long in the land the Lord swore to your ancestors to give to them and their descendants, a land flowing with milk and honey” (Deut 11:8-9)
Obedience to the Word of God releases supernatural strength to deal with every situation, no matter how difficult. We are getting ready to move into a new church building and into a new house. The challenges are many…but God’s grace and strength is supplied more than enough. I was there every day for the past two weeks, arranging furniture and things. I was not sure how hard it will be, carrying load accumulated for all these years. I prayed for strength, physical and spiritual. Strength was released from above. My muscles ached but not too much…
Something special surprised me… Strength came… Not in the way I anticipated…Strength manifested in the form of supernatural peace inside the new home. Surprisingly, I do not feel strange in a strange place. I do not feel like a visitor going to a hotel. I feel at home. I go from room to room just to have my feet touch all the floors… This is my new home on earth. I still do not know where to dispose the trash etc but I feel peace about the new home. Peace envelops me. It is the peace of God in the midst of transition, of changing seasons with ease, peace to move to a new address. This is strength to enter and to posses my possessions.
According to the Word of God we shall live long and enjoy the sweetness and the goodness of this land. To enjoy life, that is strength. To have peace, that is strength. This evening I feel strong and secure in the presence of God.
“Lord, I am grateful, for Your strength and for Your peace”
