“You light a lamp for me. The Lord, my God, lights up my darkness. In your strength I can crush an army; with my God I can scale any wall.”
Psalms 18:28-29 NLT
God will always light the path of those who are His. He will turn darkness to light. I love the way David boasts in the LORD! With God, not even an army can defeat us. With God, there is no barrier that can't be overcome! As the Apostle Paul declared in Philippians 4:13: “For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.” NLT Listen to Romans 8:31: “What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us?” NLT Consider the Prophet Isaiah: “But in that coming day no weapon turned against you will succeed. You will silence every voice raised up to accuse you. These benefits are enjoyed by the servants of the Lord; their vindication will come from me. I, the Lord, have spoken!” Isaiah 54:17 NLT Take a moment to read Psalm 27. There is no one to be afraid of but God. He alone possesses all power. If He is with us, if He is for us, if He is in us, then whom shall we fear? Embrace this declaration: “But you belong to God, my dear children. You have already won a victory over those people, because the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world.” 1 John 4:4 NLT
Greater is God in us! Jesus is with us, for us, and in us. His Spirit dwells in the very body of the true believer (see I Corinthians 6:19). We need not be afraid. Take heart child of God. Everything is going to be ok. Trust in Jesus and fall into His arms of grace.
Prayer for today: Father, in Jesus name, I know You are with me, for me, and in me. Your Spirit lives inside me. I love You and trust You. Help me rest in the assurance of Your mighty power and not my fleeting circumstances.
