Comments Enabled on God of all strength

Blessings to my beloved cyber brethren,

Thank you for all bearing with me regarding the disabled comments section on the post “God of all strength.”

The comments section have been enabled thanks to my brother Stu’s step by step help. He was so super patient was a non-techy girl. Many many many thanks, Stu! This is just one of many reasons we need each other. If this issue ever happens to you, see Stu or ironically the comments section on “Comments Disabled.”

On this note, I want us to be reminded that we here, are the Body of Christ and each one of us has a unique gift that is of great benefit to the other. Let us not be competing with each other for the spot light. Let us serve each other in humility and with grace. Let us do what the Lord has equipped us to do. Let us continue to raise the blood stained banner high.

In my “quiet” time this morning I came across this poem from my devotional “Streams in the Desert.” It has been a source of God’s strength to me this year. Each time I review the pages, it is as though God has a message from home for me. I believe you can view the book online as well in case you are ever interested.

He giveth more grace when the burdens grow greater,
He sendeth more strength when the labors increase;
To added afflictions He addeth His mercy,
To multiplied trials, His multiplied peace.

When we have exhausted our store of endurance,
When our strength has failed ere the day is half done,
When we reach the end of our hoarded resources
Our Father’s full giving is only begun.

Fear not that thy need shall exceed His provision,
Our God ever yearns His resources to share;
Lean hard on the arm everlasting, availing;
The Father both thee and thy load will upbear.

His love has no limits, His grace has no measure,
His power no boundary known unto men;
For out of His infinite riches in Jesus
He giveth, and giveth, and giveth again.

  1. Amen!!!!!!!!!!!

    “For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function, 5 so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another. 6 Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, let us prophesy in proportion to our faith; 7 or ministry, let us use it in our ministering; he who teaches, in teaching; 8 he who exhorts, in exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness….Romans 12:4-8

    “There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. 5 There are differences of ministries, but the same Lord. 6 And there are diversities of activities, but it is the same God who works all in all. 7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all…1 Corinthians 12:4-7

    1. Awww, thank you Stu. When the comments section was closed I asked God what lessons am I to learn. A few came to mind. This morning, another was given – the need for the family of Christ. We need each other in this race 🙏🏽


  2. Yes, amen! I love those lyrics. I didn’t realize it was an old hymn until I recognized the refrain at the end. In my own devotional this morning I read about the Christians in other parts of the world and how much they suffer for the gospel. I was shaking my head, wondering how a pampered, free American girl could ever withstand something like that when it happens, but the first verse you shared showed me the answer. I can see how He weaves my morning readings together – He weaves every detail of my life together – to give me whatever I need to live confidently for Him. Thank you for being part of that.
    PS – I too am a “non-techy girl,” but I use the politically correct term, “technologically challenged.” 😉

    1. Aha! Hymns are certainly ah-mazing!
      It’s interesting that you said technologically challenged, I tell folks I’m not short, just vertically challenged 😉
      Wow! Isn’t it amazing to see God move just like that. The scripture reminds us that while we are yet speaking He is answering and even before we ask He brings it to pass. Hallelujah! It’s such an honor to be an answer for someone and to receive someone as an answer. Let us continue to trust our Daddy, especially during those times of doubt and suffering. 🤗

  3. We do need each other because our gifts are a blessing to each other. These words are timely and we need to hear them more often. The body of Christ is plagued with too much competition. Have a blessed weekend.

    1. Amen!
      We do! I remember this scripture that Holy Spirit gave me years ago when I felt inadequate after comparing myself to someone, “For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.”
      ‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭10:12‬ ‭KJV‬‬

      Happy weekend to you too, Beverly! ❤️

        1. Bless the Lord…behold how beautiful it is when we dwell together in unity. The Lord moves, He edifies, He uplifts, He blesses, He restores. We will keep your son surrounded in prayer 🙌🏽

  4. Love the last verse! Thank you for sharing. Streams in the Desert is a classic!
    His love has no limits, His grace has no measure,
    His power no boundary known unto men;
    For out of His infinite riches in Jesus
    He giveth, and giveth, and giveth again.

                  1. This has just tickled me!!! A lot of them were books I had bought for my girls, who I had gifted to my niece. It blessed me to find someone who could benefit from them like we did. It really felt like I was sacrificing my Isaac! I felt like I was giving away a piece of my girls’ childhood! I had good memories attached those books that I read with them!😢
