Word Study

This struck me hard as I consider all who are battle-weary.  The psalmist cries out, “Thou art my King O God command deliverances for Jacob.” His King is our King.  In our battle-wearied state we can cry out, “Thou art my King O God command deliverances for Jacob [Wendy-insert your name].

command- tsavah (vaw’)- to lay charge, order

We ask God to lay charge to our deliverance. [health, salvation, prosperity]

This rocks!!!
