So, when ~ ‘What’s on your mind and heart’ is too heavy, and seems to consume your every thought, paralyzing you with worry, or when people hold you over a barrel of threats and friends deceive, disappointing deeply, look to the God who gives authority to crush the enemy’s tactics and the God who cares deeply for your beautiful soul.
Yeah, in those down and out moments it’s truly time to offer Him praise as you say with the Psalmist in Psalm 118: 8- 13, 16b, “It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in people. It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in princes. Though hostile nations surrounded me, I destroyed them all with the authority of the Lord. They swarmed around me like bees; they blazed against me like a crackling fire. But I destroyed them all with the authority of the Lord. My enemies did their best to kill me, but the Lord rescued me. The Lord is my strength and my song and He has given me victory…the strong right arm of the Lord has done glorious things.”
Stand on His promise. Claim His Truth and watch His deliverance.
