He Is Our Strength And Song

When times are tough and you’re doing your best to hold onto your faith and hope, remember this verse. There is nothing that the Lord cannot do for you and He is always close to you when you are feeling weak and defeated. Reading Psalm 118 has always given me the fuel into my heart and mind to not lose my grip on Jesus and remind myself I had asked for His help so that means we are not in control anymore.

Remember to give thanks for answered prayers and to make God first in everything you do every day, for he is our strength and song!

 

Psalm 118:1-29

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good
and his loyal love endures!
Let Israel say,
“Yes, his loyal love endures!”
Let the family of Aaron say,
“Yes, his loyal love endures!”
Let the loyal followers of the Lord say,
“Yes, his loyal love endures!”
In my distress I cried out to the Lord.
The Lord answered me and put me in a wide open place.
The Lord is on my side, I am not afraid!
What can people do to me?
The Lord is on my side as my helper.
I look in triumph on those who hate me.
It is better to take shelter in the Lord
than to trust in people.
It is better to take shelter in the Lord
than to trust in princes.
10 All the nations surrounded me.
Indeed, in the name of the Lord, I pushed them away.
11 They surrounded me, yes, they surrounded me.
Indeed, in the name of the Lord, I pushed them away.
12 They surrounded me like bees.
But they disappeared as quickly as a fire among thorns.
Indeed, in the name of the Lord, I pushed them away.
13 “You aggressively attacked me and tried to knock me down,
but the Lord helped me.
14 The Lord gives me strength and protects me;
he has become my deliverer.”
15 They celebrate deliverance in the tents of the godly.
The Lord’s right hand conquers,
16 the Lord’s right hand gives victory,
the Lord’s right hand conquers.
17 I will not die but live,
and I will proclaim what the Lord has done.
18 The Lord severely punished me,
but he did not hand me over to death.
19 Open for me the gates of the just king’s temple!
I will enter through them and give thanks to the Lord.
20 This is the Lord’s gate—
the godly enter through it.
21 I will give you thanks, for you answered me,
and have become my deliverer.
22 The stone which the builders discarded
has become the cornerstone.
23 This is the Lord’s work.
We consider it amazing!
24 This is the day the Lord has brought about.
We will be happy and rejoice in it.
25 Please, Lord, deliver!
Please, Lord, grant us success!
26 May the one who comes in the name of the Lord be blessed!
We will pronounce blessings on you in the Lord’s temple.
27 The Lord is God and he has delivered us.
Tie the offering with ropes
to the horns of the altar!
28 You are my God and I will give you thanks!
You are my God and I will praise you!
29 Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good
and his loyal love endures!
