Abundant life, Encouragement

Depending on Him

Running to the source of my strength!There are times in my life when I am feeling a little down, how I must remember that God is my strength and strong tower!  It isn’t something I can do on my own and I must rely on Him for my life to be productive.  I must remember that it is only through Him I get my courage to make a difference in my own life but also in the life of others.  He is with me and He is the source of all life.  During those times, I look to Him for my source and run to Him.

I love to listen to music like this when I really need God to show up in my life and just “feel Him”…. http://kimberlyandalbertorivera.com/free.cfm looking for my help with Jesus

Exodus 15:2 New Living Translation (©2007)
The LORD is my strength and my song; he has given me victory. This is my God, and I will praise him–my father’s God, and I will exalt him!

Wesley’s Notes

15:2 Israel rejoiceth in God, as their strength, song, and salvation – Happy therefore the people whole God is the Lord: They are weak themselves, but he strengthens them, his grace is their strength: they are oft in sorrow, but in him they have comfort, he is their song: sin and death threaten them, but he is, and will be, their salvation. He is their fathers God – This they take notice of, because being conscious of their own unworthiness, they had reason to think that what God had now done for them was for their fathers sake, Deu 4:37.

Matthew Henry’s Concise Commentary

15:1-21 This song is the most ancient we know of. It is a holy song, to the honour of God, to exalt his name, and celebrate his praise, and his only, not in the least to magnify any man. Holiness to the Lord is in every part of it. It may be considered as typical, and prophetical of the final destruction of the enemies of the church. Happy the people whose God is the Lord. They have work to do, temptations to grapple with, and afflictions to bear, and are weak in themselves; but his grace is their strength. They are often in sorrow, but in him they have comfort; he is their song. Sin, and death, and hell threaten them, but he is, and will be their salvation. The Lord is a God of almighty power, and woe to those that strive with their Maker! He is a God of matchless perfection; he is glorious in holiness; his holiness is his glory. His holiness appears in the hatred of sin, and his wrath against obstinate sinners. It appears in the deliverance of Israel, and his faithfulness to his own promise. He is fearful in praises; that which is matter of praise to the servants of God, is very dreadful to his enemies. He is doing wonders, things out of the common course of nature; wondrous to those in whose favour they are wrought, who are so unworthy, that they had no reason to expect them. There were wonders of power and wonders of grace; in both, God was to be humbly adored.
