Psalm 18:1-2, “I love you, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.”
How about you? Is that how you feel? Do you see God that way or are you afraid to trust Him for fear things will get worse? Don’t buy satan’s lies? God’s desire is for your good, not for evil. We experience evil in this world because of satan. He is the deceiver and he is working hard to devour truth and light in this world. He won Eve over with a lie, don’t allow him to do that to you!
No matter how much you may ever love the Lord, you will never love Him as much as He loves you! He loves those you love more than you can possibly love them as well, so you are ok to let Him work in your life or their lives as He sees fit, knowing that He has a plan and it is to bring them closer to Him! It isn’t easy going through struggles in life and it is really difficult watching your children or other people you love go through pain and heartache, but you can trust Him. I know, I have had days when I just felt as though 1 more heartache may push me over the edge (whatever that means) but, you know what? God is still there and He promises to see us through it all and His desire is for our good, not to harm us! David experienced a lot of heartaches, betrayal, and hardships. He even had to run for his life! But in everything he faced in life, He saw God as his rock, his fortress, and deliverer, his God, his shield and horn of salvation and stronghold. He depended on God to see Him through.
Now, I must throw this in ~ be careful also what you speak over your life and the lives of those you love! Your words are more powerful than you think! God loves you and He cares about everything you face! Don’t speak fear over your situation, speak faith. If you are lacking in faith, ask God to fill you with the faith you need! Turn on some praise and worship music and praise Him until you are consumed with who He is and your faith will grow! Trust Him and the fact that He loves you! We all face hard and sometimes terrible times here on earth, but God has a plan and it is to use those things for His glory so ask Him to show Himself mighty in your situation today!
On another note; Trust Him for bigger things! God created you with a purpose! Is there something you know He has called you to but you are afraid to step out? Ask Him! Ask Him if it is time! Ask Him to show you His plan and then trust Him to see it through! Follow Him without reservation, knowing that His best is yet to come!
