Check the Oil
Check the oil
To stem the toil
Foil the spoil
From the boil
Of your engine-
Engine of your life.
Top up with prayer
Walking by faith
Hearing from God
Doing the word.
Going from strength to strength
Is not magic but by maintenance
Going from glory to glory
On the Road of Life
Requires common sense;
Praising Him, worshipping Him
Spending time in His presence.
3 My voice You shall hear in the morning, O LORD; In the morning I will direct it to You, And I will look up.
12 I have not departed from the commandment of His lips; I have treasured the words of His mouth More than my necessary food.

35 Now in the morning, having risen a long while before daylight, He went out and departed to a solitary place; and there He prayed. Mark1:35
31 But those who wait on the LORD Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.
1 How lovely is Your tabernacle, O LORD of hosts!
2 My soul longs, yes, even faints For the courts of the LORD; My heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.
3 Even the sparrow has found a home, And the swallow a nest for herself, Where she may lay her young — Even Your altars, O LORD of hosts, My King and my God.
4 Blessed are those who dwell in Your house; They will still be praising You. Selah
5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, Whose heart is set on pilgrimage.
6 As they pass through the Valley of Baca, They make it a spring; The rain also covers it with pools.
7 They go from strength to strength; Each one appears before God in Zion.
Psalms 27: An Exuberant Declaration of FaithA Psalm of David.
1 The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When the wicked came against me To eat up my flesh, My enemies and foes, They stumbled and fell.
3 Though an army may encamp against me, My heart shall not fear; Though war may rise against me, In this I will be confident.
4 One thing I have desired of the LORD, That will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the LORD All the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the LORD, And to inquire in His temple.
5 For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; In the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock.
6 And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me; Therefore I will offer sacrifices of joy in His tabernacle; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the LORD.
21 And the LORD said, “Here is a place by Me, and you shall stand on the rock.
25 not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.
