OUR STRENGTH COMES FROM THE LORD
Psalm 27: 1 - 6
By: Apostle Valdemiro Santiago
The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked, my adversaries and my enemies, came against me to eat my flesh, they stumbled and fell. Even if an army surrounded me, my heart would not fear; even if the war raged against me, I would trust it. I asked the Lord one thing, and I will seek it: that I may live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to contemplate the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in his temple. Because on the day of adversity you will hide me in your pavilion; in the secret of his tabernacle he will hide me; it will put me on a rock. Now also my head will be exalted over my enemies who are around me; therefore I will offer a sacrifice of joy in his tabernacle; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the Lord.
What chance does a man have against an army? None. The man's heart is shaken and what affects men's quality of life are his negative concerns. Imagine the concern if you wake up and hear that the Brazilian army has come to arrest you. Multiply the degree of the problem you have been experiencing, by a thousand, which will still be less than that.
God can only act, work in my life, based on my faith. You can have no one for you, not be influential. Don't be sorry for that. If this, if that. Last Sunday, the former owner of the World City land came here to ask us to pray to God to return everything that was his and he lost it. I said everything except here! I had nowhere to fall dead. I had no friends, my family was one for each side and I was the most unlucky of my family and today I understand well what David says, that an army can come against it, that the heart is not afraid. Sometimes things happen to give fear and our hearts, but God has shown us through the lives of many that God protects those who entrust life to Him. If war breaks out against you, you don't need to have anything but confidence and faith and it is from that faith that God will work in your life and do great things. Church, I feel free to say that God will change your life. Last week, my daughter's boyfriend was shot twelve times in the back on a motorcycle by three killers. I sent a message of confidence to my daughter and she sent me an even stronger one, honoring that saying that we are what we eat. In this case, our spiritual food. And God came in with providence. There are very difficult times, but the basis of this is the word of God. So learn. What we teach here is not entertainment, pastime. The guy to say what David says that knows that he is nothing. A man was never a match for an army, but he knew who he believed. Job meditated from Friday to Saturday and said that man alone is insignificant, smaller than the tree. Because the dry tree still sprouts, but the man falls and is prostrate. The difference is that God doesn't look like the tree, but you do. You were made in the image of God. Neither the tree, nor the golden lion tamarin, nor any plant or animal, is us. And nobody has the strength of God, only us.
