Listen, People of God, when you are faced with opposition, depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, bad debt, disappointment, devalue, loneliness, misfortune, anger, rage, remember that The Most High God put you just a little lower than the angels, He has declared that you are His and that He is your strength, when you need it the most.
I have experienced, and still experiencing hard times…no shame, no shade. I am one to admit it…no condemnation!
When we go through the floods of life and it seems there is no way out, trust and believe that God, Our God, will never ever leave you. He is more near to you than you have given Him credit for…His glory will be revealed to you in due time, just wait on His deliverance.
God, I thank you that when I can’t seem to climb, when I am feeling despair, You, My God has kept me from harming myself. I have learned that I am my worst enemy and that You have total control and You are molding and shaping me to Your delight. So, struggle, in struggle, I am learning to depend on You. Thank You, Lord. In Jesus Name, Amen.
Food for Thought: Can you think of your own testimony of how God brought you out? Will you allow yourself to be vulnerable in front of God, the God who knows you before you were even created? Take a moment and simply say, THANK YOU LORD!
Some of us do not notice God’s protection because we too busy looking everywhere else. We are lazy, lax in Spiritual things that we are shaded by calling everyone else but God, when none of those people can love and shelter us, keep us, sustain us, mature us but Him! We are going through the fire, the obstacles to come out better and not worse! He is teaching us because we are too hard headed to notice His grace, His mercy, and His deliverance in our lives. We do not want to pick up the Bible, we only pray after we have tried to fix things ourselves and not trusted that Our God can fix it. We are tried, but we are no defeated, the storm will pass and the sun (SON) shall rise up in us and prove to us that God was the best choice all along, if I had only chose to trust God FIRST! My God, My God! #word!
Psalm 91 NLT New Living Translation
Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. This I declare about the LORD: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him. For he will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease. He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection. Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night, nor the arrow that flies in the day. Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday. Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you. Just open your eyes, and see how the wicked are punished. If you make the LORD your refuge, if you make the Most High your shelter, no evil will conquer you; no plague will come near your home. For he will order his angels to protect you wherever you go. They will hold you up with their hands so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone. You will trample upon lions and cobras; you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet! The LORD says, “I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name. When they call on me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honor them. I will reward them with a long life and give them my salvation.”
