So go to Him especially when going through challenges. It is Him that wants you to run to Him for cover. Only He, through the Son, can care for you and provide for you if you let Him in. When standing for Him know that you are constantly under enemy attack because of your character and by the way you live by how you have learned from Him in the Word. You have His Mark and live for Him so be proud and stand tough. There is nothing that can come against you if you are with Him, always using common sense and good judgment as the Word advises. Defend yourself and those around you from the negativity and things of this world by being responsible what you let into you and those that you care about.
Genesis 25:26 “And after that came his brother out, and his hand took hold on Esau's heel; and his name was called Jacob: and Isaac [was] threescore years old when she bare them.”
Just like Jacob, the heal grabber, go after dear God’s blessings by being there for Him. One good way to do that is through the Word by keeping into it. That way you are aligned with knowing what is good for you and your life so that you will have less challenges that you bring on yourself.
Talk with Him and begin your day praising Him and thanking Him in advance for His Cover, Love and Protection. He will fight for you and be there if you just ask. Show Him how much you care by being there for Him by shining that beautiful smile and having that confident walk knowing that HE is in control – for He is Almighty God. Say His Name at every chance you get to let the world know that He lives in the actions of those that care about Him.
Finally, He is so awesome so let Him. Let His Love and Peace shine through your heart and mind and bring joy to those around you. He loves you so much and you are so precious and special to Him.
Thanks dear God for Your Love and Your Strength,
at Your service
