God is our Strength!

If you look back at the rest of this Psalm, you’ll see Asaph wasn’t a spiritual powerhouse. He was an honest man who came to a point where the life of the wicked looked a lot better than the life of the godly. The grass really did look greener on the other side of the fence – and he was stuck on the fence! How many of us have teetered back and forth on that same fence? How many of us have wavered as we tried to balance the spirit and the flesh? The Psalmist realized this was a losing proposition because ultimately he couldn’t sustain it. Have a wonderful say relying on God as the strength of your heart. Love you all.

“My health may fail, and my spirit may grow weak, but God remains the strength of my heart.” Psalm 73:26

This verse is the prayer of a man who needs God. It is the heart of a soul thirsting and hungering for the presence of God. Too many times we muster up the spiritual intensity to actually need God only when our situation calls for it. Our perception is clouded as we look around at our success and look down from the mountaintop thinking we’ve finally made it past the need for desperation. When we ultimately come down (or fall) off the mountain, we tend to look around at those who stand above us and we become jealous or bitter because their lives appear more blessed than ours. Unfortunately, we don’t become needy for God until we crawl at the bottom of the dark valley looking for a lighted pathway out.

It is impossible to walk in faith and use God as a crutch. No, the walk of faith goes so far beyond that. God isn’t my crutch. He isn’t my “aid in walking.” He is my whole support. There is no part of me that has the power to walk this Christian life on its own. I am lead to the point of faith whereby I trust God completely without any reliance on my own strength. I am lead to the point of faith whereby I trust God completely not only with my future by He is my future. He is my strength and my portion.

About Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!
