“David was greatly distressed, for the men spoke of stoning him because the souls of them all were bitterly grieved, each man for his sons and daughters. But David encouraged and strengthened himself in the Lord his God.” (I Samuel 30:6 AMPC)

Sometimes it can seem like the world is against you. It looks like there is no way out. That’s when we must remember God’s promise that He is always with us:

“He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!].” (Hebrews 13:5b AMPC)

It’s also a good time to remember the times He came through for you before.

"I have been young, and now am old; Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, Nor his descendants begging bread." (Psalm 37:25 NKJV)

Because I can forget and can allow the cares of life to become bigger than they should be I make it a point to count God's blessings towards me daily. I have a section in my journal called:

Provision, Blessings, and Favor

This is where I note what God has done. I do it in different color ink so I can quickly find the references to God's provision, blessings, and favor in my life. Then like David I can reflect on what He has done and strengthen my faith for what's in front of me.

I love going back and seeing His provision, blessings, and favor in my life. It strengthens me when the storms come reminding me that God's got this!

"And God is able to make all grace (every favor and earthly blessing) come to you in abundance, so that you may always and under all circumstances and whatever the need be self-sufficient [possessing enough to require no aid or support and furnished in abundance for every good work and charitable donation]." (2 Corinthians 9:8 AMPC)

Be Encouraged! ❤
