DEUTERONOMY 33:25b – STRENGTH FOR TODAY

You have probably noticed that some days require more strength than others do.  There are easy days and there are hard days. For most of us, today will be one of those hard days. Therefore we need to remind ourselves of a special promise from God tucked back in Deuteronomy 33.

 

"...and as thy days, so shall thy strength be."

 

A day is a 24 hour capsule of time.

We all have a certain number.

Some have more days, some less, and no one knows how many they will have.

Some days require much strength, because much is happening.

Some require not as much strength, for not as much is happening.

The God who gives "us each day our daily bread" is also the God who gives us each day our daily strength.

When much strength is required much strength is given. When only a little strength is required, then a little strength is given.

 

"...and as thy days, so shall thy strength be."

 

One man who proved this promise to be true was David.  He had many different days and God gave him strength for each one. We will have the same types of days that David had.

 

DAYS OF PREPARATION - He spent many days isolated from others while watching his father's sheep. Perhaps it is then when he first thought of the 23rd Psalm. He was alone much with God. God prepared him for the adventures that would follow. It was here that David learned that God could be trusted for strength. 1 Samuel 17:34-37

 

DAYS OF PRESSURE - David faced the pressure of facing the giant. 1 Samuel 17:20-58

 

DAYS OF POPULARITY - David went from being unknown to being well known. 1 Samuel 18:5-7

 

DAYS OF PERSECUTION - There were two great times of persecution for David. Saul persecuted him. 1 Samuel 18:8-11 and many other passages show this.  His own son, Absalom, also persecuted David. 2 Samuel 15-18

 

DAYS OF PENITENCE - David's best known sins were his affair with Bathsheba and murder of Uriah. David was given the strength to repent. 2 Samuel 11-12, Psalm 51

 

DAYS OF PROBLEMS - David had various difficulties with his general Joab, other kings, and the people. Yet through all of this David was given strength to handle the problems.

 

DAYS OF PROSPERITY - David used his wealth wisely when he was rich. 1 Chronicles 28.

 

DAYS OF PARTING - David died victoriously. He went into the presence of God. 2 Samuel 12:22-23, 1 Chronicles 29:28, Psalm 116:15.

PSALM 146 – HALLELUJAH!

 

I am a fan of the Psalms. The Psalms speak to me where I live. The Psalms

help me to learn, to grow, and to know God better.

There are many themes in the Psalms. We find Christ often. We find tributes

to God's Word, to trust, to Godly living, and numerous other things.

One of the greatest themes in the Psalms is that of praise, worship and

adoration.

 

The last five Psalms (146-150) are known as the "Hallelujah Psalms". They

are called this because they begin and end with the word "Hallelujah". In

the King James Version of scriptures those words are translated "Praise ye

the Lord". Because they begin and end with the Hebrew word "Hallelujah"

they are called the "Hallelujah" psalms.

 

One of the purposes of a sermon is to give reminders. Although we many

"know" something in our head, having been taught it many times, we often

need reminders for our hearts. Our hearts need to be reminded to practice

the truth that we have learned. Psalm 146, the first of the Hallelujah

Psalms, reminds us to praise the Lord!

 

THE INVITATION TO PRAISE - Vs. 1

We've all received invitations to various events. This invitation is one of

the greatest. It is to praise the Lord. This invitation calls me:

To turn my thoughts from myself to my Savior

To look from the daily grind to God

To stop whining and start worshiping

To turn my eyes away from creation on to the Creator

See Revelation 4:11

 

THE ENDURANCE OF PRAISE - Vs. 2

There is nothing wrong with holy resolve. In Psalms we often find the

writer saying, "I will". The psalmist knows what is right and says, "I will

do it!" Modern Christians can certainly use more of this type of holy

resolve. The psalmist sys "While I live will I praise the Lord." That means

my praise is to continue through this life. Psalm 5:3, Psalm 145:21, Psalm

100:4, Psalm 113:3

 

In this verse the psalmist also says, "I will sing praises to my God while I

have my being." I will live this life for an unspecified period of time,

but as a Christian, my being will continue in Heaven for all eternity.

Therefore this life is only "choir practice" for the eternal praise that I

will give around the throne of God.

 

THE ENEMY OF PRAISE - Vss. 3-4

One of the enemies of praise is trust in man. When I trust man I am

worshiping man and not God! I can tell that I am trusting man:

1. When I see an individual as a solution to my problems

2. When I talk more about man than I do about God

3. When I am more concerned about what man things than I am about what God

thinks. Proverbs 29:25, John 5:44

 

THE QUALIFICATION OF PRAISE - Vs. 5

The person who can praise is the man whose help is the God of Jacob, and

whose hope is in the Lord his God.

 

THE REASONS FOR PRAISE - Vss. 6-10

1. God is Creator - Vs. 6

2. God is the Truth - Vs. 6

3. God is Faithful - Vss. 7-9

4. God is King - Vs. 10

MATTHEW 6:12 – FORGIVE US OUR DEBTS

THE LORDS PRAYER #6 0F 8

 

I have been pastoring for 25 years. I have discovered that the biggest problem people have is unforgiveness. I think that they do not realize how important forgiveness is.  Not only did Jesus teach us to pray "Forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors", but the words immediately following the Lord prayer are a real challenge. Matthew 6:14-15

 

I want us to consider some important truths about forgiveness.

 

FORGIVENESS IS REQUIRED

 

We need forgiveness, first of all, in order to have eternal life.

Sin causes separation. When Adam and Eve sinned against God in the Garden of Eden, they were separated from God's presence.  God evicted them!

 

God told Israel in Isaiah 59:2, "But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear."

 

When Jesus died on the cross for your sins, He paid the price so that you can be forgiven. When we trust Christ as Savior, that forgiveness becomes ours. Colossians 2:13-14, Ephesians 1:7

 

Not only do we need forgiveness for eternal life but also we need forgiveness on a daily basis. Psalms 66:18, 1 Thessalonians 5:19, Ephesians 4:30-31, 1 John 1:8,10

 

Not only is forgiveness required for salvation and by believers after salvation, but it is also required that we forgive. Matthew 18:21-22, Ephesians 4:32

 

FORGIVENESS IS REQUESTED

 

Forgiveness is something that we need to seek.

When one places their faith in Christ as Savior, they have sought and found forgiveness.  In a sense, because they have trusted Christ, they have asked for forgiveness. Ephesians 2:8-9, Ephesians 1:7

 

Forgiveness of sin is also to be requested by us when we as Christians sin against God. Psalms 32:5, 1 John 1:9

 

There is another sense in which we need to ask forgiveness. We need to ask forgiveness of each other.

 

We so appreciate it when people come to us and say, "I'm sorry, I was wrong."  We must realize that it is our responsibility at times to go to others and say those same words, "I'm sorry, I was wrong." Matthew 5:22-24, James 5:16

 

Luke 17:3-4 - "Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him. And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him."

 

If I am to forgive my brother who confesses his sins, should I not also seek the forgiveness from my brother when I sin against him?

 

FORGIVENESS IS RELATIVE

 

Matthew 6:12 - "And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors."

 

Any time I come to the Lord in prayer I must realize that I am just as responsible to forgive as I am to seek forgiveness.

 

Sometimes it is hardest to forgive those you love.

But forgive them we must do.

When we fail to forgive we become bitter. Hebrews 12:15

 

Also, when we fail to forgive, we do not experience our Lord's healing forgiveness. I am forgiven relative to the extent that I am willing to forgive.

 

Matthew 6:14-15 - "For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses."

 

FORGIVENESS IS REPEATED

 

FORGIVENESS IS REPEATED BY GOD: 1 John 1:9 - "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."

Psalms 103:10-14

 

FORGIVENESS IS REPEATED BY US:

 

Luke 17:3-6

Just think how many times you have been forgiven by God.

It's no wonder that you need to forgive others more than once.

 

Forgiveness means you are removing responsibility from that person. They no longer owe you.

 

Don't bring it up to them.

Don't bring it up to others.

Don't bring it up to yourself.

Don't bring it up to God.

 

Forgiveness is not forgetting, but remembering without anger.
