Do not forget the one who loves you far beyond your wildest imaginings. Open your arms as wide as you can and visualize double, triple, quadruple, and MORE; that is how much God loves you. God will give you the strength to face anything. His Word says, ďI can do all things through Him who gives me strength.Ē
There are so many times in my life I forget God is always with me through thick-or-thin. I know in my head that everything God says is true, but it is not a heart realization. How about you? The problem with the head knowledge of God is that nothing will truly be accomplished in my life. My heart is finally pushing for me to have the right relationship with God, and Iím ready. What got me excited was that I can ask God directly some of my questions and He answers backÖtalk about the best connection ever. I no longer feel alone, I have the direct channel to Him.
You need strength? He will give it to you. You need a shield from the negative arrows being shot at you? He will put up the shield. You need help with your dreams and goals? He will give you the ability and excitement to move forward. Your only responsibility is to be willing with your heart to thank and praise Him. Donít you think He is worth it? I do with all my heart, but donít fake it. Do the real thing. Again God says, ďThe Lord is my strength and shield. I trust Him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving.Ē
Donít be like me where so many times I forget to step behind Godís shield. The silly thing is that even though I know the shield is there I stand there like a fool, being pierced to the heart by satanís arrows. Now that my heart is connected to God, I have asked God to remind me to step behind His shield and be safe. You too need to not try and be a warrior and take the shots; it is not cowardice to step behind Godís shield. Live a strong and safe life with God.
