SCRIPTURES: Psalm 24:7-10 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. 8 Who is this King of glory? The LORD STRONG and MIGHTY, the LORD MIGHTY in BATTLE. 9 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. 10 Who is this King of glory? The LORD of HOSTS, he is the King of glory. Selah. (See also Exodus 15:3-14)
THOUGHT: The LORD, who is “JEHOVAH SABAOTH – the LORD of HOSTS”, is also “JEHOVAH GIBBOR MILCHAMAH – the LORD Strong and Mighty, the LORD Mighty in Battle”. To say that the LORD is STRONG refers to God’s Power, Strength and Capability to fight for you as His child. To say that the LORD is also MIGHTY amplifies the understanding of His Power, Strength and Might. This word was used to refer to the greatest of heroes, champions and warriors, those who have been victorious in difficult battles. You can be assured that when you commit your life to the God who created you and who sent His Son to redeem you, that He is able to fight any battle and that He will be victorious.
PRAYER: Dear Heavenly Father, JEHOVAH GIBBOR MILCHAMAH – THE LORD Strong and Mighty in Battle: Knowing that You are the Greatest of all Warriors with all Power, Might and Strength gives me every reason to follow You, serve You, obey You and love You, because You are victorious and You know how to bring about victory. I yield to Your Authority, Might and Strength, In Jesus’ Name, AMEN!
