The Lord Surrounds and Strengthens His People
The Lord Surrounds and Strengthens His People...
May The Lord surround and fill us with His Holy Spirit, according to His merciful and faithful promises...
May His power rest on us and be made perfect in our weaknesses, according to His omniscient might, and all for the richness of His glory...
And may we never be shaken in our trust and faith in Him, as He completes the good and gracious work He designed and began in us long ago.
"You have enclosed me behind and before, And laid Your hand upon me."
"The Lord will give strength unto his people; the Lord will bless his people with peace."
"But He said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is perfected in weakness.' Therefore I will boast all the more gladly in my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest on me.'"
~2 Corinthians 12:9
"I pray that out of the riches of His glory, He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being,"
..."being strengthened with all power according to His glorious might so that you may have full endurance and patience, and joyfully"...
"I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has strengthened me, that He considered me faithful and appointed me to service."
~1 Timothy 1:12
"I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me."
"Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:"
"He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defence; I shall not be greatly moved."
