Chosen by God!
“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 before.
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. 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!
Be Encouraged! ❤
