Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
Today's message is designed to provide words of encouragement because as we travel through life's ups and downs, we sometimes get weary and need a warm smile or a handshake or even just a kind word or two.
That said we witness adversity daily and often wonder why or what is going on; well, we live in a fallen world where Satan is busy seeing who he can destroy. Be encouraged because the Lord God did not give us a spirit of fear, but the power of love and a sound mind. A sound mind is one that knows right from wrong good from evil. Exercising a sound mind that is focused on Jesus, Satan, and his evil schemes will not harm us. See, Satan wants us to be burden down with fear and weary, but take heed to our scripture text when it asks us to delight ourselves in the Lord, and He will give us the desires of our hearts. We desire peace, love, and harmony. God's peace surpasses the world's understanding and peace.
Remember the words recorded in Isaiah 54:17a which states, No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn.
Be encouraged; God has us in His hands.
