“Do not become weary in your work for Me. Do not give up when your heart is tired of the warfare. I will never allow anything or anyone to destroy what I have planned for your life. Battles rage against you because of the plans that I have for you. You are garrisoned all around, so the enemy takes notice of your life. As intense as the battle in the heavenlies is, My forces are much stronger than all that comes against anything you do. There may be small inroads that attempt to hinder you. There may be some detours that I will allow for My purposes, but the end result will always be the same. You will win if you keep coming to Me. This day come to Me. Allow Me to give you the peace and rest that is needed so that you can continue. Be still with Me. You are Mine! I am El Shaddai!”
Psalm 46:1 AMP
God is our Refuge and Strength [mighty and impenetrable to temptation], a very present and well-proved help in trouble.
Jeremiah 29:11-13 NIV
11) “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
12) Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me and I will listen to you.
13) You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”
Our Father always arrives in the nick of time. He always finds a way for us to be able to make it another moment, day, month, or year. In the past, I would often ask Him why He would not give me the abundance needed to overcome all the daily pressures that come my way. One day He responded this way: “Then you wouldn’t need Me continually. You are too immature for Me to allow you to be left on your own.”
I love how my Father in heaven loves me. I am continually in awe as He changes me, holds me, and protects me from myself. We grow weary. He never does. We fear. He has none. We become discouraged. He becomes our strength. He is truly our provider and very present help when we need Him.
Thank You, Lord,
