Text: Psa. 144:1-15
“Blessed be the LORD my strength, which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight. My goodness, and my fortress; my high tower, and my deliverer; my shield, and he in whom I trust; who subdueth my people under me. LORD, what is man, that thou takest knowledge of him! or the son of man, that thou makest account of him! Man is like to vanity: his days are as a shadow that passeth away. Bow thy heavens, O LORD, and come down: touch the mountains, and they shall smoke. Cast forth lightining, and scatter them: shoot out thine arrows, and destroy them. Send thine hand from above; rid me, and deliver me out of great waters, from the hand of strange children; who mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood. I will sing a new song unto thee, O God: upon a psaltery and an instrument of ten strings will I sing praises unto thee. It is he that giveth salvation unto kings: who delivereth David his servant from the hurtful sword. Rid me, and deliver me from the hand of strange children, who mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood: That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth; that our daughters may be as corner stones, polished after the similitude of a palace; That our garners may be full, affording all manner of store: that our sheep may bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our streets: That our oxen may be strong to labour; that there be no breaking in, nor going out; that there be no complaining in our streets. Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is LORD.”
If the Lord is your God, there is a programme of joy for you this year. It is a year of good tidings with great joy. Receive it in the name of Jesus Christ. Receive all the wonderful blessings in this Psalm. The key is ‘blessed be the Lord my strength, which teachest my hands to war and my fingers to fight.’ Your spiritual welfare is directly proportional to the level of your spiritual warfare. Possession is by contention. The Lord God gave the children of Israel a land flowing with milk and honey but they had to contend every inch of the way to possess it. The only people who are rewarded in heaven are overcomers. We just have to accept it. A lot of people do not even know that there is a raging war over their lives. The moment you were born into this world, you were born into battles, a raging war. As we progress into the end times, the battle gets intensified. The corona virus is not a natural occurrence. It is man made from the pit of hell by people who have released something into the universe that they did not create in order to control the population of the earth, but they will not prevail.
The Bible talks about strange children in verse 7 – “Send thine hand from above; rid me, and deliver me out of great waters, from the hand of strange children.” One of the ways to know the operation of the devil in this end time is the level of deception. Lying was the first game the devil played; lying is going to be is last game. There is so much deception in the world today. It is so bad that the only thing you can trust is the word of God. The only way you can find sanity is through the word of God.
