There are so many times in life when we feel totally overwhelmed, all stressed out and completely exhausted. We feel as though we are tumbling down a hole at break-neck speed and we’re carrying everyone’s luggage with us, as well as our own.
These are the worst times… We are shattered, broken and feel totally inadequate and unappreciated. Life, it seems, is completely hopeless.
But it’s not. It never is. For we serve the most mighty God. He’s a loving God, a God who is with us wherever we go.
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
He is there in times of trouble and He will neither fail you or forsake you (Deuteronomy 31:8)
And the Lord , He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed.” Deuteronomy 31:8
Be stilled in knowing that the Lord will guide you. The Lord loves and appreciates you when nobody else seems to, and he is a powerful and almighty God. He gives and gives and cares and cares, even when we don’t acknowledge him.
Praise our mighty Father and give thanks, for he is always there.
Prayer to Overcome
Heavenly Father, in the all-powerful and Mighty name of Jesus, fill me with your Holy Spirit. Take away that consuming anger and bitter hurt. Dispel all forms of resentment and negativity.
Do not let my enemies even think they have won. O Lord, you give me victory over my enemies and protect me from violent people. You save me from my foes.
I need your everlasting peace. I cannot do this without You. May Your name forever be praised, because You alone deserve all the praise. Amen.
I am a child of Jesus, living in the remote but truly incredible country, Zimbabwe. I’m 20 and a lover of nature and being outside and a very ambitious person at heart. I love God and have put my trust in him that he will guide me always.
