Psalm 27:5 King James Version (KJV)
5 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.
Don’t we just serve an awesome God that has proved time and again that He is and will always be there for us. No matter what storms are raging or thrown our way in life, we always rest assured that we will find shelter in the Lord. The sure promise that He will never leave nor forsake us but will always protect us, encourage us, guide us, and help us. Now that is an Amazing God.
I love the fact that despite David’s many trials and temptations, he knew in whom to place his confidence: “The Lord is my light and my salvation-whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life-of whom shall I be afraid?” (Psalm 27:1). In times of weakness, trouble and testing, remember that God is your strength and confidence. No one who places his or her hope in Him will be disappointed!
PSALM 31:19-20 NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION (NIV)
19 How abundant are the good things that you have stored up for those who fear you,
that you bestow in the sight of all, on those who take refuge in you. 20 In the shelter of your presence you hide them from all human intrigues; you keep them safe in your dwelling from accusing tongues.
I just want to encourage you all today that no matter how tough it may get, His strength is perfect just for you. You don’t have to use your own strength ever. Pour your hearts out to Him and trust Him with all your heart, leaning not unto your own understanding. Know that you can overcome all things through Christ who gives you strength. Remember He is more than able.
God bless you
