We are strong in Him. He gives us the courage and the stamina to endure what must be endured, and to overcome every trial known to man. He is the one who will save you from the pits of despair; from every disease and sickness, as long as your walk is with Him. Psalm 103:1-5 NKJV “BLESS the LORD, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies, Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagles.”
Every battle belongs to the Lord. He is fighting for you on your behalf.1 Samuel 17:47 NKJV “Then all this assembly shall know that the LORD does not save with sword and spear; for the battle is the LORD’S, and He will give you into our hands.”Our fight is not with the people we love, nor is it with your employer, nor is it with the taxi driver, or the pizza delivery man, or even the dentist. No! It is with the powers of darkness. Ephesians 6:12 NKJV “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.”
God provides us with the strength and the endurance necessary to win this race. All we need to do is to trust Him that all is taken care of for each part of the journey. He will equip you beforehand with all the necessary ingredients you need in order to cross that finish line. We must however take the first step, and walk in it. We must take one step at a time. Psalm 40:1-3 NKJV “I WAITED patiently for the LORD; And He inclined to me, And heard my cry. He also brought me up out of a horrible pit, Out of the miry clay, And set my feet upon a rock, And established my steps. He has put a new song in my mouth – Praise to our God; Many will see it and fear, And will trust in the LORD.”
As we step out in faith, God will provide us with what we need for the next part of the journey, and so on, and so on. He has already prepared the way for us. We just need to get over our fears, and continue hand in hand with Him. He will get you through the toughest of trials. He will lift you up lest you dash your foot against a stone. Psalm 91:9-12 NKJV “Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place, No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways. In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone.” Amen!
PS Jude 1:24-25 NKJV “Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, And to present you faultless Before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, To God our Savior, Who alone is wise, Be glory and majesty, Dominion and power, Both now and forever. Amen.
All glory for these words goes to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.
