Standing Firm

“Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today….The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.” – Exodus 14:13-14

When I am afraid…..stand firm.

When I am in trouble, the Lord will rescue.

When I need a defender, I need to be still, and let Him fight for me.

Standing firm like this round tower. A tower of strength, refuge and protection during trouble.

“In You, O Lord, I have taken refuge. For You have been my hope, O Sovereign Lord, my confidence since my youth.” -Psalm 71:1,5

Strength

“I’m not strong enough.”

“I can’t do this.”

“I can’t see how this is going to work out.”

Are we strong enough?  No.  But God is.  Always.

We don’t see the strength beforehand…it comes as we need it, step by step.

And that’s where I rest, in Jesus’ hands, where there is rest and peace and protection.

So many people I know are going through some very difficult times.  I find myself praying more and more.  I have to have another surgery on my ankle in October.  More inactivity, more propping the foot up for hours on end.  But also, more time to spend with the One who has all the strength and hope and answers and power.  Jesus.  Thank God for that.

“God gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.”  ~Isaiah 40:29

Whatever you’re facing, Jesus is your strength.  Slainte, Lisa
