Your God is Your Source and Strength

Egypt, horse and horse-men
Are types, images of bondage
Craving , depending on these
Is an affront on the Most high.

It is trusting in the arm of the flesh
And in the strength of the horse
It is depending on people or friends
It is relying on your ability, dexterity.

People may be a channel
But Your God is the source
He is well able to provide
Just as long as He presides.

So be strong in the Lord
Call on Him in your trouble
Pray, plead the promises
And He will deliver you.

Provision belongs to the shepherd
Healing is the job of the Great Physician
Protection is the province of the Banner
Preservation is the specialty of the Lord of Hosts.

Woe to Those Who Rely on Egypt
1 Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help,
who rely on horses,
who trust in the multitude of their chariots
and in the great strength of their horsemen,
but do not look to the Holy One of Israel,
or seek help from the LORD.
2 Yet he too is wise and can bring disaster;
he does not take back his words.
He will rise up against that wicked nation,
against those who help evildoers.
3 But the Egyptians are mere mortals and not God;
their horses are flesh and not spirit.
When the LORD stretches out his hand,
those who help will stumble,
those who are helped will fall;
all will perish together.
4 This is what the LORD says to me:
“As a lion growls,
a great lion over its prey—
and though a whole band of shepherds
is called together against it,
it is not frightened by their shouts
or disturbed by their clamor—
so the LORD Almighty will come down
to do battle on Mount Zion and on its heights.
5 Like birds hovering overhead,
the LORD Almighty will shield Jerusalem;
he will shield it and deliver it,
he will ‘pass over’ it and will rescue it.”

This is so true Fenny. And the Lord will test us in all things.
He will use people, circumstances to bring out the best in us,
to shed the worse in us. Beautiful poem, very uplifting. Thank you.
