United in Prayer, Unlimited in Power As We Link to the Father

I knew I have kept thinking the ways go back home. In such and such situation, can I go back to Japan? How about in this situation? Is it a good excuse? No, the Lord is leading me to this land. Maybe I should take 6 classes sometimes, so I can cut off 1 semester... etc. Yesterday, I suddenly realized that I had ticket for Osaka on July 5th... today. I couldn't help myself but weeping. I prayed, "Lord, I still believe You are leading me to this country, to this school; but I wanna go home. I wanna go home. I wanna go home..."

Guess what? Today's message at church was titled, "God is My Refuge and Strength". We also sung the hymn, "God Will Take Care Of You." I took it as an answer of my prayer. I felt the Lord was telling me with warm voice, "I'll take care of you. Through every day, over all way, I will take care of you. Your God will take care of you..." How blessed to serve the Living God, Who can hear, and Who can answer!

Sis. Halka,
Good on you! Thats the SPIRIT! Holy Spirit Yes, Praise the Lord! for HE is our Refuge and strength.

Sometimes we feel we are at "the end of our rope." But you know what? That's okay. Sometimes that is exactly where we need to be; that way, we "have to" depend on God instead of ourselves. And His strength is more than ample.

Strength as a part of God's character:

Job 12:13 (NRSV) With God are wisdom and strength; he has counsel and understanding.

Psa 65:6 (NRSV) By your strength you established the mountains; you are girded with might.

Contrast of our strength to God's:

Psa 73:26 (NRSV) My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

1 Cor 1:25 (NRSV) For God's foolishness is wiser than human wisdom, and God's weakness is stronger than human strength.

How God helps us with His Strength:

2 Cor 12:9 (NRSV) but he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness." So, I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me.

Psa 28:7 (NRSV) The LORD is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts; so I am helped, and my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him.

Psa 138:3 (NRSV) On the day I called, you answered me, you increased my strength of soul.

Psa 46:1 (NRSV) God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

Eph 6:10 (NRSV) Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his power.

1 Pet 4:11 (NRSV) Whoever speaks must do so as one speaking the very words of God; whoever serves must do so with the strength that God supplies, so that God may be glorified in all things through Jesus Christ.
May the Holy Spirit Be with you always and guarded you with God's strength.
