Some Words to Encourage

Imagine standing on a battlefield all alone facing an angry army of 1,000 men.  Each is breathing torturous threats at you.

 

 

Suddenly you feel the earth pound beneath your feet like the hoof beats of 10,000 horsemen.  Your heart melts with fear as you prepare yourself for the ever-mounting foe.

 

 

Then you realize it isn’t 10,000 horsemen after all.  It is one.

Your gaze lifts higher and higher as you try to focus on His face.

He looks 100 feet tall atop His stallion, and His very presence emanates authority.  He is stunningly beautiful.  Staggeringly powerful. 

His horse gallops onto the battlefield, kicking up the earth.  He pulls the reins and comes to a stop right beside you.

He then looks at you and says,

 

“Proceed into battle, might warrior.  I am on your side.”

 

 

 

When we call upon His name, God promises New Testament believers that same kind of power and victory in the far more terrifying battles of the spiritual realm.  He didn’t just promise we’d be conquerors.  He promised we’d be more than conquerors.  Christ will never take us into a battle we cannot win.

 

 

 

 

The preceeding is an excerpt from my Bible study, Stepping Up, A Journey Through the Psalms of Ascent, by Beth Moore. 

 

 

 

 

I pray that Christians can come together and pray for our nation.  We need it so desperately.  We live in a fallen, immoral world, and the only thing we can depend on is Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. 

Trust in Him that He sees the BIG picture. 

Trust in Him that we are exactly where we are meant to be in this life… and that ultimately, we have nothing to fear.  For if the Lord God is for us…

 

 

My thoughts and prayers are with you-

Amanda

    Hi! Came over through Kate’s blog. Just wanted to say that I’m just finishing up with this Bible study, too! Is it just me, or did you also think of the election stuff with almost every day’s work?!? It was weird. Course, it totally could’ve just been me!
    Anyway…I really enjoyed your blog. Lots of luck with the brand new little one on the way!
