Mighty to Save

“Mighty to Save.”  Isaiah 63:1

The internet is often dangerous for me.  I get overwhelmed and burdened with excessive coverage of news, from “big” events, such as the devastation in Haiti, to the personal sorrows of strangers.  And then eternity comes to view, and I wonder, where are these hundreds of precious souls headed?   Do they know Jesus?  But the Lord doesn’t want ME to handle all of this.  He wants me to trust HIM.

Spurgeon encouraged me about these matters which are all ‘too difficult for me’ (Ps 131:1) today:

The words [mighty to save] are multum in parvo—much in little.  Indeed, here is all mercy in one word!  Believer, here is encouragement.  Are you praying for some loved one?  Oh, do not give up your prayers, for Christ is “mighty to save.”  You are powerless to reclaim the rebel, but your Lord is almighty.

Lay hold of His mighty arm and rouse it to put forth its strength.  Does your own case trouble you?  Fear not, for His strength is sufficient for you.  whether to begin with others or to carry on the work in you, Jesus is “mighty to save.”  The best proof lies in the fact that He has saved you!

I carry this verse in my heart through song, written and sung by Laura Story.  Worship with YouTube version below or the uploaded song in the blue Music Box.  What a powerful proclamation that our God is Mighty to Save!

  1. This is beautiful Linda. Yes, you see before I knew the Lord, I never realized that someone else was praying me into the kingdom. I am pretty sure that they also felt that they can do little to make me believe. But no…with that seeming little, God is able to enlarge it and even save nations. Haiti is a good example. Your prayer and mine…said privately or with others when combined together will reach heaven and a NATION will be saved. I believe this with all my heart.

    Blessings and have a great weekend

    Our hearts are for the families from Haiti ,too ! Let`s keep prayers for all the overhelming situation of there .

    Often when we face obstacles in our day-to-day life, our hurdles seem very small in comparison to what many others have to face. The Brooklyn Bridge shows us that dreams that seem impossible can be realised with determination and persistence, no matter what the odds are.The pursuit of happiness is a matter of choice…it is a positive attitude we consciously choose to express. It is not a gift that gets delivered to our doorstep each morning, nor does it come through the window. And I am certain that our circumstances are just a small part of what makes us joyful. If we wait for them to get just right, we will never find lasting joy.

    The LORD is with us !
