Psalm 68: 34-35,
“Ascribe strength to God;
His excellence is over Israel,
And His strength is in the clouds.
O God, You are more awesome than Your holy places
The God of Israel is He who gives strength and power to His people.”
Keeping God and all He has done in the forefront of your mind is what will give you more faith, hope, and strength! It will also keep you on the right path. While God’s desire is to strengthen us and help and guide us, He requires that we follow Him because that is where you will find His answers.
When you ascribe to God all that He is then your faith becomes strong because you know that not only is He able, you know He will always do what is right. You can’t see the big picture, so what you may be seeing today in your life may not make sense, but He is working and He will see His plans fulfilled in the earth. You have a choice each day whether you will choose fear or faith, good or evil, God or satan, hope or hopelessness and the God of all strength wants to give you the strength to make the best choices. He wants to help you guard your mind against all the attacks satan is coming at you with, but you must choose Him and His Words over the lies of satan. It is a battle and you must consciously choose and fight to guard your heart and mind. There’s no just skating through life if you truly want God’s best for you and those you love. His love for you is beyond measure and He wants to help you grow in your faith, hope, and love. You are not alone. It may feel as though you are, but He is by your side desiring to walk with you through it all. Trust Him.
There’s a lot of heartache and frustrations in life and sometimes the more you seek God, the more you will feel as though you are standing alone because all hell will want to come against you, but you must remember Who He is that is standing next to you. Who lives inside you? Okay, so if you have the Holy Spirit of God living inside of you then you can know that even if all Hell comes against you they are no comparison to Him. Creation coming against the Creator has never worked out well for them. Cling to God and His promises. Hold on to your faith in Him and who He is!
Remember if you are struggling today that it is always darkest before the dawn. If you are on the Lord’s side then you need to lean into Him and trust Him to do all He has said He would do. God is greater than any storm in life, any illness, any evil, any lack. He sees and He wants you to trust Him with it all today!
