When you least expect it He is there. Let’s go to:
Psalms 14:7 “Oh that the salvation of Israel [were come] out of Zion! when the LORD bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, [and] Israel shall be glad.”
salvation (Strong’s 3444) something saved, deliverance, aid, victory or prosperity.
Israel (Strong’s 3478) he will rule as God; a symbolic name of Jacob; (from Strong’s 8280) to prevail, have power (as a prince) and (from Strong’s 352) strength, a chief;
come out (Strong’s 3381) to descend, boundary or enemy;
Zion (Strong’s 6726) Tsijon (a permanent capital), mountain of Jerus; (from Strong’s 6725) a monument or guiding pillar or sign .
Lord (Strong’s from 1962) to exist, be or become or come to pass; (Strong’s 3068) self-existent, Eternal and Jehovah;
bringeth (Strong’s 7725) to return to starting point, to retreat, to turn back, home again, correct, deliver, rescue or restore;
captivity (Strong’s 7622) exile, prisoners, former state of prosperity, captive; (from Strong’s 7617) to transport into captivity or to drive away;
people (Strong’s 5971) a tribe i.e. a flock or nation;
Jacob (Strong’s 3290) heel catcher, supplanter (take place of), Jacob patriarch; (from Strong’s 6117) to seize by the heel as Jacob with Esau);
rejoice (Strong’s 1523) to spin around (with emotion), be glad, joy, joyful or rejoice;
glad/rejoice (Strong’s 8055) brighten up, blithe or gleesome or glad.
Rest on that One that already has done it all through you through the Son because He is Eternal and He is dear God. Be part of that flock that is joyful and glad to be part of Him in His Plan of Love by having that positive attitude, spirit and confidence in knowing that He is able.
Stay with Him through the Word. There is no better way than to understand Him through what He already has written to you and whomever so believe on Him. He loves you and likes it when you get to know Who He is and the expectations He has for you here. HE does have a promise to you written in the Word. It just takes discipline in sharing in that relationship with Him by digging deeper into the Word. Ask that He helps you out with the Word and gives you patience and diligence when you do study. It is your effort in that relationship with Him so that You can enjoy Him and all the blessings that He doses have for you.
Talk with Him and thank Him for all the good that is going on right now today in your life. There is nothing like being in His Presence and being happy knowing that HE is right there beside you.
Finally, when you least expect it He is there for you. So be there for Him and open your heart to what He has you to do. Love and share that joy that only HE can bring you with those dear family members and friends around you. He loves you so much. Tell Him how special He is to you and make Him smile on you even more.
Thanks dear God for Your Love and Your Strength,
at Your service
