Don’t think You will make it? Turn to God!

Psalm 28:7  states that  The Lord is my strength and my shield;  My heart trusts in Him, and I am helped;  Therefore my heart leaps for joy,  And with my song I shall thank Him. Even though Psalm 28:7 is a really good Bible verse, we have found that many people  have felt that they did not have strength for the journey ahead. Many people have encountered battle after battle and have come to the place where they have found themselves very weary from having to go through so much. It may have seemed there was no strength left.  Being in a situation like this makes you feel like unless God gives His Supernatural strength, you will not be able to continue on. Have you been in the place we are describing? Are or you in that place now, that unless God gives you the strength to continue on you will not be able to continue?

If you have ever felt this way or if you feel this way now, the truth is God has more strength than we will ever need in this life time. He protects us with His shield and leads us in His ways. In the times where we feel there is no strength left, God provides the strength we need, and within our heart comes an abundance of praise. Because we now have the strength to not only continue the journey, but we now have the strength to overcome the next obstacle that arises.

As long as we trust the Lord, we can be assured to have all the strength we need to overcome everything the enemy brings against us. It really does not matter what the enemy brings against us, because God always has the answer and provides us with the necessary strength to win the battle. God is always for us and He is always meeting every need we have. He is so gracious to provide us with everything needed to accomplish His will.

So let’s not give in to the fear that the devil tries to bring our way. You may be familiar with the fear that we are referring to that the devil will try to bring your way. The fear that you won’t make it. The fear that God won’t help you. The fear that God won’t save you or the fear that God may leave you at the hands of your oppressors. Don’t let the devil bait you into giving in to living a life full of fear, let’s all praise the Lord for His great strength. Let’s take our eyes off what the devil is doing, and place our eyes upon Jesus, who is the author and finisher of our faith. Jesus allows us to call upon Him for our strength because we realize we have come to the place where there is no one we can receive our strength except from the Lord.

Let us praise the Lord for His goodness and strength. He is always more than willing to help us in the good times and also in the times of trouble. He always has the answer and in His time and in His way will get it to us. God wants us to continue the journey He has placed before us because if we will continue the journey that God has placed before us, then God will give us the strength to make it! So what are you waiting for? Let’s accept the strength that God wants to give us when we continue the journey that He has placed before us and run our race with joy and thanksgiving, for God is good and can be counted on to meet our needs.
