Put your Trust and Hope in the things of the Lord!

The world has a way to discouraging us from serving God. When things are not going according to plan, the world will make fun of us and ridicule us for putting all of our trust in God. The world does not understand the ways of God and they do not understand how a loving God could allow us to suffer the way that we do. Waiting on the Lord is never easy. Patience is a precious promise from God that we can add to our life when we put our hope in HIM. When we put our focus upon the things of God, the world will attack us for the choices that we have made. I hope and pray this encourages as you continue to put your hope in the things of the Lord. Love you all. 

“Don’t let those who trust in you be ashamed because of me, O Sovereign LORD of Heaven’s Armies. Don’t let me cause them to be humiliated, O God of Israel.” Psalm 69:6


The world desires to make us ashamed of the choices we have made so that they feel justified in the decisions that they have made. The world knows that if there is a God, they are in trouble and rather than change their own ways, it would be easier to take care of their guilt by trying to get you to change then for them to change themselves.

 

When you put your hope in the things of the Lord, do not allow the world to distract you from God’s best for your life. Once you have determined that you are going to wait for God’s best, you need to be ready for the attacks from the enemy. Satan is going to bring attacks to test your resolve. Satan knows that God’s best for your life is never good for him. Satan knows that if you wait patiently for God’s best, there will be a powerful testimony that can touch the lives of others and encourage others to live a life that is pleasing unto the Lord. Satan understands that it is better to get you to give up early then to let you wait a long time and see God’s blessing.

 

In this Psalm, David understands that he will need to wait on the Lord. David understands that there will be things that happen that will persuade him from not pursuing the perfect timing of God. As such, David very wisely is praying to God and asking God not to allow him to become ashamed of waiting. David is basically asking God to keep him from temptation while he is serving the Lord. David knows that the attacks of the enemy will come. We need to follow the example of David. We need to ask God to protect us while we wait on HIM.

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!
