Psalm 27:13-14 I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. 14 Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.
David, in this text needed hope. David had lived a life where his enemies were constantly on his trail. He experienced one trial after another. If it was not King Saul or the Philistines , it was the enemies of God's people chasing after him.
If we never had a problem, we would never know that God could solve them.
When the enemy of our mind attempts to torment us with his lies, we can go to the word of God and find hope and peace.
David had a choice to either believe the giants in his life that he was facing or to trust God and take Him at His Word. David chose to trust God for he said in vs#13- I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
David had history with God. He spent time with God starting from a young boy, therefore, by faith David was able to see the hands of God working on his behalf and in the midst of danger.
David's life was not trouble free and neither will yours or mine be. The key is "faith" in God.
Through it all, David learned to trust in God and to take Him at His Word. We must do to the same!
Everyone of us can look back over our lives and see the things that we have gone through and how God not only strengthen us in them, but he brought us through them all.
People of God, my words to you on today is this "THROUGH IT ALL" put your faith and trust in God for He alone is the one who can shelter you in your time of trouble in His secret place.
Are the storms of your life raging? What are you gonna do about it?
1 Peter 1:7-These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold--though your faith is far more precious than mere gold.
I spent years allowing the enemy to torment my mind, but once I realized that God was for me and not against me, I purposed in my heart that "THROUGH IT ALL" I WILL trust God and take Him at His Word."
THROUGH IT ALL! I have learned to trust in God and to depend upon His Word.
Is this your testimony on today also?
