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.
