Surely, the Lord gives strength to his people.
The Lord gives strength to his people; the Lord blesses his people with peace.
All the glory, praises and honor be to the Holy Father in Jesus’ precious name !
The subject verse from the Book of Psalms calls to glorify the Almighty God. Especially, it is much for the honor of the Living God that we should always be conscious of His divine presence with us. Thus, way we shall be truthful and righteous in the sight of God. But as the below scriptures say, our righteous acts are like filthy rags to God. Certainly this could only mean one thing that what we consider or have in mind are different in the sight of God.
All of us have become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags; we all shrivel up like a leaf, and like the wind our sins sweep us away.Isaiah 64:6 NIV
Our reliance on our own strength shall not get us to anywhere. Since our powers are insufficient to fight against the dark forces of the world. Only if we rely on the Almighty God, He gives us the strength as said in the subject verse. And how great will it be if the Omnipotent God himself is our strength and shield. As said in the following verse, we shall also trust Him with all our hearts just like the psalmist, king David. Furthermore, we shall also make the Lord our strength and shield.
The Lord is my strength and shield. I trust him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving.Psalms 28:7 NLT
Finally, let our faith and trust in the Living God be strengthened to live for His glory. May His peace and joy rest over us and let our lives be ever praising the Lord in all circumstances. In Lord Jesus precious name be blessed. Amen.
