He is right next to you. So let Him be there for you and enjoy His Company. Let’s go to:
Psalms 18:37 “I have pursued mine enemies, and overtaken them: neither did I turn again till they were consumed..”
pursued (Strong’s 7291) to run after, put to flight or follow;
enemies (Strong’s 341) hating, an adversary, an enemy or foe;
overtaken (Strong’s 5381) to reach, be able, ability or take hold of;
turn again (Strong’s 7725) to turn back, return, retreat, slide back or back again;
consumed (Strong’s 3615) to cease, be finished, perish or consumed.
Know who you are in Him by identifying with Him and what your purpose is here. He loves you so much and is so proud of you. Things that pull you away from Him or draw you from Him and are against dear God in His Plan try and avoid so you are not pulled down. Have a positive and confident attitude even if the majority of the world and things around you may be negative. Know that because you are with Him and doing things for Him you naturally have those who are not with Him against you. So look forward to tough times and challenges and let Him take you through them and make you stronger.
By keeping in the Word you have that armor that only the Word can give you. His thoughts and love that pours out through the Word automatically puts you in His Presence to lift you out of confusion and negativity. Follow those examples that He already has set out in the Word and see how by sticking with Him, you can get through anything.
Talk with Him and keep that open line of communication. HE loves being with you, but His Feelings get hurt if you are not there for Him, too. Let Him know you are thankful for the friends, family, job, home and many blessings in your life. There is nothing that He has not put in your path that He cannot help you overcome so let Him help you through those challenging times. Enjoy the happy times with Him, too, and do not forget Him. That way He knows you respect and love Him for helping you and just go to Him in times of need.
Finally, He is right next to you so acknowledge Him and tell Him you love Him. Give back to Him by having that positive attitude, that happy smile and the confidence and faith in knowing that He is there for you. Let Him show through you to the world His Love and all that He has to offer. Be that witness for Him and show Him your faithfulness and mostly, your love. He is so happy to have you right next to Him, too.
Thanks dear God for Your Love and Your Strength,
at Your service
