The six "I will" statements from Psalm 118



1. vs 6 "I will not be afraid."

2. vs 7 "I will look in triumph on my enemies."

3. vs 17 "I will not die but live."

4. vs 17 "I will proclaim what the Lord has done."

5. vs 19 "I will enter and give thanks to the Lord."

6. vs 21 "I will give Him thanks."

When a spiritual battle is raging around us, we need to remember who is with us. We need to keep our eyes focused on Christ. God is always with us, he is our helper when conflict and spiritual warfare is upon us. When we are steadfast in our faith, and focused completely on Jesus we will be able to say as the Psalmist has written, "I will..."

In the name of the Lord, we will have victory over our enemies in this world, as we remember to say "I will..."

With Love Robin

My Precious Friend,

I'm still staying afloat in the raging seas right now all because of His Word and my clinging to and trusting in each one of them.

Thank you for such a powerful message. You help my eyes, mind and heart to remain wide open to Him.

I love you Robin.

Peace, Love & Blessings

Beautiful reminder of what we truly have that's in us...we battle with God's weapons not of worldly things so "we will"...

Blessings to you sister and have a great weekend.

Wow!Thanks for reminding us of these Scriptures. Brief, simple but POWERFUL. This is so encouraging. (I love the music playing: "Will You Worship?")

Good thing I came back :) Contemplating? I say, "go sister"...If that's what's eating at your heart, ask the Lord if that's what He wants for you - to learn how to play the guitar. Nothing impossible with Him...God bless.

Robin,
This must be the message for today, worship, even in the middle of a storm. I love these six verses, I am going to copy them down and write them on cards to encourage me when things go wrong.

Your music is beautiful.

An interesting take on the "I will's" of God versus the I will's of satan that caused his fall.

The Psalmist David is as relevant today as he was thousands of years ago. How many people have clung to these 6 "I wills"? And how many yet unborn will also find solace and strength in that Psalm? The Word of God is magnificent isn't it?
