They are Your people, even Your inheritance, whom You have brought out by Your great power and Your outstretched arm.
Deuteronomy 9:29 (NASB)
God is still freeing people today. Freedom from dead religion. Freedom from addictions. Freedom from panic and worry and doubt and confusion. Freedom from selfishness. Freedom from sin. He frees us from eternal punishment when we turn from sin and trust in Him. He frees us to love Him and love others.
I want God’s outstretched arm to work for liberty in my life.
I need His liberty.
2. … I need His victory.
The arm of the Lord points to the fact that He wins – all the time – even when it may look like a defeat at first. God’ wins don’t always look like ours. Look at the cross –the place He was pierced. It looked like a defeat. But the arm of the Lord turned it into a win – the most awesome win ever!
O sing to the LORD a new song, For He has done wonderful things, His right hand and His holy arm have gained the victory for Him.
Psalm 98:1 (NASB)
God is still winning victories today for His people. You may feel defeated today – spiritually, emotionally, relationally. You’re spent. You can’t lift the weight in your life. It looks like there’s no way you can win. But there is not a weight He cannot lift.
I want this victory. I want God’s right hand and holy arm to win for me… and for my family… and for you.
I need His victory.
3. … I need His energy.
The arm of the Lord points to the fact that He can do anything. When I run out of options and energy and creativity, the Lord has more than enough to finish any job I’m facing.
Ah Lord GOD! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and by Your outstretched arm! Nothing is too difficult for You, who shows lovingkindness to thousands.
Jeremiah 32:17-18a (NASB)
When God starts lifting the weight, your impossibilities become His possibilities.
There’s a businessmen who needs to sell $50,000 worth of product in a month to meet quota. Even the boss thinks, “There’s no way.” But a chance contact takes place and a $20,000 sale happens. A sales project that everyone thought was “dead in the water” suddenly takes place for another $35,000. The businessman not only meets quota, but exceeds it. How did that happen? It’s the arm of Lord.
I want this energy! I want God’s outstretched arm to work for me, especially when things are too difficult for me because nothing it too difficult for Him.
I need His energy.
4. … I need His security.
The arm of the Lord points to how He is a soft place for His people to fall. Have you failed recently? Have you fallen? Have you disappointed yourself. Are others disappointed with you? The good news is His arms are a soft place for you to land.
The eternal God is a dwelling place, and underneath are the everlasting arms.
Deuteronomy 33:27a (NASB)
When God’s arm is working for us, we can step out and try some things that we’ve never tried before. We can try things that we’ve tried before. If we fail, we’ll find that God’s arms are there to catch us.
I want God’s everlasting arms to catch me, to catch my kids, to catch you.
I need His security.
5. … I need His safety.
The arm of the Lord points to His desire to keep us close to His
