The Lord is the one who sustains me!

King David’s enemies wanted him to fall so they could rejoice over him with gloating. His enemies wanted to cause Him to become greatly discouraged. They wanted to bring him to a place of resignation, or more simply put, a place where he would sit down and just simply give up. However, David drew His strength from God and kept on going to become an over-comer. Let me encourage to like David to not give up and be an overcomer. Have a wonderful day as you remain in His presence. Love you all. 


 “Surely God is my helper, The Lord is the one who sustains me.” Psalm 54:4

 

In times when you feel as if the battle is too much, when you feel as though you cannot go on, then go to the Lord, who, as our scripture for today says in Psalm 54:4 will help us and strengthen us, “Surely God is my help; the Lord is the one who sustains me.” Listen how loving and caring God is towards you in Isaiah 46:4, “I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.” It is the Lord who sustains us. He is whom we rely upon for my every need, and it is He, who lays His hand upon us, to upholds us and strengthens us.

 

Maybe there have been times in your life during like David where some people were hoping to see you fail and fall flat on your face, so they could gloat over your shortcomings. Where the enemy wanted to destroy your testimony and your faith in God, but like David, from Psalm 54:4, You too could say this, my confession of faith, as a testimony of God’s grace, provision, protection, and goodness, “Surely God is my helper; the Lord is the one who sustains me.” And praise God, to this day, you are still standing strong in the LORD and in the power of His might!

 

My friends, when you go through times of difficulty that may reveal your shortcomings and that is just what they are, shortcomings, you can still come through victorious if you keep your eyes on Jesus, and draw your strength from Him. Take heart, for what you go through today, you will not go through tomorrow, because they will not last forever. God can, and will, turn things around for you. The Bible says Psalm 46:1 “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in times of trouble.” He is the One who will help and sustain you every second of the day. He is the One who will carry you through and rescue you; He is the One who keeps you going, He is the One who will give you the strength that you need to be an over-comer in Him, in every area of your life.

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!
