The Lord is the STRONGHOLD of my life--of whom shall I be afraid?" -Psalm 27:1
The Lord is my light, He is my salvation, He is the STRONGHOLD of my life.
Wow, what truths. What truths.
God is so good and so great.
Lately I've been seeing words like: OVERCOMER. Words like: Do not fear. Words like: Trust me.
"Lord, I trust you."
"Do you trust Him?"
God has been so good, and the challenges that have come towards me in the past few days have shown me just how much strength He has given me, and how He'll never leave me.
Friend, God is ready to give you the power to overcome whatever struggles come your way.
Today I wrote down in my journal:
"Trust Me to lead you.
You will disappoint yourself, you will disappoint others, others will disappoint you; But I will never disappoint you."
It's true. I've learned that even I will betray myself in some cases and do things that I never thought I would do. I realize this when things are brought to light and I repent in sorrow and helplessness. I see this when I regret the things I've done or said. I see this when I look at the past.
I see this even more when I see that in SPITE of my happenings and fleshly ways, the LORD still forgives me, and gives me grace, and hope, and a future, and love, and peace and SO much MORE! Amen! Hallelujah! Let's just celebrate the Lord.
He will not disappoint you.
Don't compare Him to your friends, to your enemies, to your colleagues, to your boss, to your situation. Don't even go that far to compare the situation you're in with the God you have IN you. He is so much bigger than that.
Whatever was allowed in your life, He has given you the power to go through it. He has given you the STRENGTH, the HOPE, the GRACE, the MERCY, the PEACE to accompany it, and the THINGS to do WITH IT.
In light of all this, God is with you, even when you mess up and dissapoint yourself.
One day, you'll be looking back saying, "I'm an overcomer."
Praise God for He is good!
May He bless you abundantly and greatly with all His Might.
