Remember Me, O Mighty One!

When storms around are sweeping,

When lone my watch I’m keeping,

’Mid fires of evil falling,

’Mid tempters’ voices calling,

When walking on life’s ocean,

Control its raging motion;

When from its dangers shrinking,

When in its dread deep sinking,

When weight of sin oppresses,

When dark despair distresses;

All through the life that’s mortal,

And when I pass death’s portal,

Remember me, O mighty One!

Remember me, O mighty One!

Joanna Kinkel

Everything that happens to and in God’s creation is important to the Father (Matthew 10:29). He feeds the sparrow and takes care of all of His creation. The sweet truth is that God sees me. He knows my burdens and my joys. Not only does he know but he helps us in every time of need and victory (Hebrews 4:16; 7:29). 

Jeremiah, though known as the weeping prophet, did not loose faith in God’s deliverance and restoration (Jeremiah 27:22, 30:17). God’s promises to comfort and keep us should fortify our hearts in the hours of crises and hurt (Psalm 121:1,2). The rock of salvation is “steadfast and sure while the billows roll.” It is with confidence that we can live knowing the all powerful God is for us (Romans 8:31). David properly stated:

“Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.” (Psalms 124:8 ESV)

Brethren, I don’t know if we ever get to the point that we don’t suffer from too little faith. When tragedy strikes it seems human to feel abandoned, deserted and all alone. Even the great prophet Elijah suffered from that short sightedness (1 Kings 19). There comes a point when we must look to God realizing that He will carry me through. 

Rejoice today that God is a “present help in trouble” (Psalm 46:1). He is near to all who call upon Him (Psalm 145:18). He is our stronghold (Psalm 9:9).
