As we sang Chris Tomlin’s song Everlasting God last Sunday, it got me thinking that not only is our God the defender of the weak, he is also our defender of the week. How does God defend our week? I’m glad you asked. He does it by protecting us from the enemy, providing a way out from sin, providing a hedge of protection (like in the time of Job); in the lonely times when there is no one else around us He is a comfort and companion.

A few verses with this

  • Hebrews 13:5 Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”

  • Isaiah 40:28b-31 The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.

  • Psalm 140:7 Sovereign Lord, my strong deliverer, you shield my head in the day of battle.

  • Psalm 18:2 The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.

  • 1 Chronicles 16:36 Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting. Then all the people said “Amen” and “Praise the Lord.”

  • Psalm 68:5 A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling.

 Everlasting God by Chris Tomlin
I will never leave you or forsake you

Strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord
As we wait upon the Lord
As we wait upon the Lord

Strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord
As we wait upon the Lord
As we wait upon the Lord

Our God, You reign for ever
Our hope, Our strong deliverer

You are the everlasting God,
The everlasting God,
You do not faint, You won’t grow weary

You’re the defender of the weak
You comfort those in need,
You lift us up on wings like eagles

Strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord…

How is God the defender of your week? Find your strength in Him
