He Strengthens Me

Why do I fear what will happen or what people may do to me or say about me? I realized that if I am honest with myself, the reason is because I feel that God is not there to help me. But the truth is that he IS there! I just need to have the faith to believe it and seek Him out. My pastorís message Sunday helped me to realize that the reason I am feeling the fear is because I am not seeking Godís presence. God shall supply ALL my needs. Not just the financial ones, but ALL of them.

The Bible tells me that the joy of the Lord is my strength. His joy strengthens me. Godís pleasure in me gives me strength. He is pleased when we worship and praise Him. He inhabits the praises of His people. When I feel vulnerable to the danger of the world, I will praise Him and He will hide me in the shelter of His presence. I will be safe from what anyone could conspire against me, so there is no need to worry. In His presence there is peace. He is my refuge from the world.

When I read about Martha, I am reminded of myself. I find myself getting so upset over all the details. But there is really only one thing about which I should be concerned. I need to sit at the feet of Jesus. We live in a world where people are weary, tired, worn out and beaten up. But God never grows faint or weary. He gives power to those who are tired and worn out. He offers strength to the weak. And those who wait on the Lord will find new strength (Isaiah 40:28-31). Spending time with God gives me strength. My pastor asked us Sunday if we were victims or victors. After spending time with God, I come to realize that I am not a victim but a victor. I am able then to take authority over my circumstances and fight the Devil with the power granted to me by my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
