He came home exhausted from work.
He had begun early that morning, and worked overtime.

Couldnít wait to get to that couch and just rest.

As soon as he got to the couch, he just plopped!

Then, suddenly, he gained energy to jump straight up!!

He had laid down on one of his sonís toy spurs!

Ps 68:28
Thy God hath commanded thy strength: strengthen, O God,
that which thou hast wrought for us.

Light from the Word.

For the saved, God has "commanded thy strength."

He who has saved us will also preserve us.
It is His strength that keeps us unto the final day of salvation,
ready to be revealed at the last day (See 1Peter 1:5).

Faith is "..that which God has wrought for us."
He has not only wrought it FOR us but also IN us.
It is by grace we have received faith;
and by grace we are strengthened in it.

The lamp, which never went out in the Old Testament tabernacle,
is the symbol of Christ.

His light of grace, pouring out faith, never ceases.
We must go to Him daily in prayer to be filled with His faith.

We often forget that the ole devil, the world,
and even ourselves weaken our faith.
And we need strengthening in that faith every day.
We are "foolish virgins" if we do not go to Christ every day
in prayer and ask Him to fill us with the oil of faith.

It is through fellowship, communion with Him that we are strengthened.

When you are "down," let your heart pour out to God in confession
of your weakness.
He will spur you on to new strength in
"..that which God has wrought for us."

Love ya!
