A message from Libby
It seems all of us are facing a battle of some sort, however big or however small. It could be illness, waiting for surgery, sadness of loss, coping with Covid 19, loneliness or family worries.
A key moment in Israel’s history is when the Ark of the Covenant was brought into the city of David. Samuel tells us that it happened in a moment of peace between battles.
When the ark was in place, symbolising God’s presence, David led the people in song. Together, the nation sang of God’s wonder-working power. “Look to the Lord”, they cried out, “seek His face always”.
Look to the Lord and His strength. Seek His face.
That’s not bad advice, When illness, family concerns and other battles overwhelm us, let us all hold on to our little lights of faith. We haven’t been left to fight on with our own waning energies, God is present, God is strong. Our God will get us through.
Father, we hand over our battles to you. We trust in Your strength and your promises.
