Well, the past couple of weeks have been a real struggle. It is been hard to concentrate and I have to constantly re-remind myself that I am God’s child so He is with me always. In the book of Exodus 3, Moses is met by God in the form of a burning bush. God tells Moses, in today’s terms, “I am all you need.”
Moses was contemplating going to tell Pharaoh what God instructed him to say. Moses, from a carnal [earthly] standpoint, felt discouraged because Pharaoh was the king. Moses looked at Pharaoh to be a mountain that he could not get past. Moses was then encouraged and empowered by God to go to Pharaoh, but not by himself, God told Moses that He would be with Him and by God’s power, Pharaoh had to subject to God’s authority through Moses.
This leads me to say…every time I face a “mountain” and its bigger than me, I know from reading God’s Word that I can and will cross the mountain. No matter how high, how steep, how cold, how dreary, how it looks like I can be defeated, I must realize that God is on my side. Who else can be God? Who can beat me if I stand and walk in God’s authority? Who can tear me down? So what, things are going to happen that hurt and try to destroy us, but please if you do nothing else, remember you are a child of the Most High God!!!
Know that you belong to the King of Kings, the ruler of everything…..nothing is too hard for Our God. These trials, struggles, mishaps will not destroy us nor keep us from reaching our next destination…IF we decide within our mind, body, and soul that the LORD is on our side.
Walk in authority, trust God to keep His Word, we will struggle as Jesus did, but as Jesus was raised, so shall we be raised out of everything that comes against us!!!
Do focus on this and say BUT LORD (In spite of my situation), I AM GOING TO TRUST YOU, ANYWAY EVEN THOUGH I AM GOING THROUGH!!! Repeat this with belief everyday in every situation and in every thought. USE this phrase with assurance so you can confuse the enemy and began to let God have control over that “thing(s) you face. Say it so you can hear it!
Be encouraged and walk in the authority God gave us.
Today’s Scripture Reference:
Isaiah 41:10 NLT “Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.”
Psalm 55:16,17, 23b CEV “I ask for your help, Lord God, and you will keep me safe. Morning, noon, and night
you hear my concerns and my complaints.” “Our Lord, we belong to you. We tell you what worries us,
and you won’t let us fall.” “I trust you, Lord!“
