Psalm 46

Psalm 46
Day 46: Be blessed!

According to alamoth meaning to be sung at the level of soprano, it was a musical term meaning “maidens”. The Psalmist is asking that the women sing this Psalm.

To be truly BLESSED every Church needs women to sing such a song.

The Elim Pentecostal Church in the UK was founded in 1915 by George Jeffreys. Jeffreys and a group of friends, known as the Elim Evangelistic Band, preached, planted churches and witnessed a move of God that was characterised by miraculous healings and an explosion in the number of people becoming Christians. However, within only 4 years Elim began sending missionaries across the world. Who were these people? Single women missionaries with a steely determination and raw passion to take the gospel to those who have never heard. In 1919 Miss Dollie Phillips sent to Mahim, now Mumbai. In 1929 Miss Marion Evans and Miss Marion Point again sent to India and were mightily effective for over 25 years! Today Elim are still sending out inspirational women of God and it is a joy to witness the power of the Spirit in and through their lives.

History speaks so loudly of the powerful inspiring action of women who left everything and gave everything they could because God had called them.
Without doubt everyone of these women will have been empowered by the same Holy Spirit who came upon Mary the young virgin girl who received her calling with the words, “The Lord is with you”.
700 years previously someone wrote this song:
God is an ever-present help in trouble
God is within her, she will not fall
God will help her at break of day
The Lord Almighty is with us
The Lord Almighty is with us

The Church needs women to truly believe these words. Let them be your food today.
Struggling with your workload.
Doubting your place in this life.
Wondering what tomorrow may hold.
GOD is with you!

The Church needs women to sing loudly:
We will not fear, v2
We will not fall, v5
God is in control v8-10

If you are a man reading this then send it to a woman and encourage her to sing the alamoth. Tell her the church needs her more than ever. If you are a woman, will you be this woman?
