Faithful in testings, you have already won the battle
If you are faced with circumstances that you cannot get through and it seems like there is no way out and you are going under. Be careful not to lose heart and to become confused with whether or not God will see you through.He cannot go back on his promise because of his sovereignty.
My encouragement when trouble comes
My encouragement is that you fight your battles through prayers, on your knees. The enemy hates prayer and he trembles when a believer starts to pray. True prayer reveals dirt and opens the gates of unrighteousness. It creates spiritual vigilance where a believer’s spiritual scenes are sharpened. The secret of prayers is that no evil with stand it will all be exposed. When we pray and we fully surrender all to Jesus we should leave the outcome to him.
Rest in his promise and stand still and enjoy our salvation. Do not get distracted with all that happens before your complete victory. Keep your eyes on Jesus, hold your head high and praise your ways out of your situation. Do not be engaged in idle chatter that will lead to bitterness and UN-forgiveness. Know where you stand with the Lord and be confident in his truth about you. Make no mistake you have already won the battle. The victory is for you. Walk in it…
Remember the Lord will shield you from the effects of unrighteousness. He shall hide you in his pavilion, in the secret place of his tabernacle. Where the enemy cannot touch you. You don’t have to go around defending yourself. Pray, love and wait upon the Lord. Continue to live for Jesus and ask him to live through you.
The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? 2 When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell. 3 Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident. 4 One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in his temple. 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. 6 And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the Lord. 7 Hear, O Lord, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me. 8 When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, Lord, will I seek. 9 Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation. 10 When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up. 11 Teach me thy way, O Lord, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies. 12 Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty. 13 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.
