What are you going through today? Does the devil have you so discouraged...so down and out...in great despair? Well, just say to him, “Get behind me, Satan, you will not prevail, because Jesus never fails!” Oh, that’s shoutin’ ground!!! Jesus never fails! Yes, Jesus never fails! Psalm 32:7 says, “Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance.”
Do you remember that great ole’ hymn, “Jesus Never Fails"? Has God used it in your life? It’s a song that God has brought to my memory throughout my life. And because of that, “I’ve got confidence”...God’s gonna see me through. Exodus 15:2 says, “The Lord is my strength and song, and He has become my salvation...”
I sure remember the singing “Downings” making that song, “I’ve Got Confidence,” famous. Young Joy Dyson did a great job with it. No matter what our case may be, God’s gonna see us through. He’ll make a way where there seems to be no way.
If you are having a hard time this morning (or afternoon or night), remember He’s just a whisper away. God will meet you where you are and help you. You can count on HIM. Just call out His name. Ask Him for the strength to sing. Then let Him remind you of a song...and begin to sing. And soon our burdens will take flight. Ephesians 5:19 says, “Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord.”
Prayer, Bible Reading/Study, and songs will get you through any problem. Psalm 9:11 says “Sing praises to the Lord which dwelleth in Zion; declare among the people His doings.” Exodus 15:1 says “Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the Lord, and spake saying, I will sing unto the Lord, for He hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath been thrown into the sea.”
Trish and Larry Jewett posted the lyrics to this song recently on Facebook and I share them with you in closing. “There is peace in the midst of my storm-tossed life. There’s an anchor, there’s a rock to cast my faith upon. Jesus rides in my vessel, so I fear no alarm. He gives me peace in the midst of the storm.”
I say “PRAISE THE LORD”.
