Faith in Action
“The horse is made ready for the day of battle,
but victory rests with the Lord.”
“If we could see how much You're worth,
Your power, Your might, Your endless love,
Then surely we would never cease to praise.”
(Matt Redman, Let everything that has breath, 1997)
“Moses answered the people, ‘Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. The Lord will fight for you;”
“There has never been a day like it before or since, a day when the Lord listened to a human being. Surely the Lord was fighting for Israel!”
“Your house and your kingdom will endure forever before me; your throne will be established forever.”
2 Samuel 7:16
“A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse;
from his roots a Branch will bear fruit.
The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him –
the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding,
the Spirit of counsel and of might,
the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the Lord”
“...and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”
“But I trust in your unfailing love;
my heart rejoices in your salvation.”
Then I said to you, ‘Do not be terrified; do not be afraid of them. The Lord your God, who is going before you, will fight for you, as he did for you in Egypt, before your very eyes, and in the wilderness. There you saw how the Lord your God carried you, as a father carries his son, all the way you went until you reached this place.’
In spite of this, you did not trust in the Lord your God,
The Pow’r that led his chosen, by pillar’d cloud and flame,
Through parted sea and desert waste, that Pow’r is still the same.
He fails not—He, the loyal hearts that firm on him rely—
So put your trust in God, my boys, and keep your powder dry.
(William Blacker, Oliver’s Advice, 1834)
The Lord is my strength and my defence;
he has become my salvation.
He is my God, and I will praise him,
my father’s God, and I will exalt him.
