But the salvation of the righteous is from the Lord; He is their strength in the time of trouble. And the Lord shall help them and deliver them; He shall deliver them from the wicked, And save them, because they trust in Him. Psalm 37:39-40 NKJV
If Jesus is your Lord and Savior you are righteous. Being righteous does not mean you are perfect. Being righteous does not mean you are so heavenly minded you are no earthly good. Righteous people have been brought back into relationship with Jesus.
God wants us to be humble. He wants us to exalt Jesus not ourselves. God does not want us to think of ourselves more highly than we ought to. Jesus wants us to consider other people more highly than ourselves.
The Lord wants to show us who we are in Jesus. He is in the process of forming the life of Christ in us. One day we will be perfected and live in total perfection. Today we are imperfect people living in an imperfect world.
Jesus will help you in times of trials and troubles. The Lord will give you the strength you need to get through today no matter what it brings. Jesus will deliver you from or through the circumstances tomorrow may bring!
The promises of God to save protect and provide for the needs of the righteous can be found all throughout the scriptures. God does not want us to spend our time just reacting to the trials and difficulties of life in a fallen world. Jesus will enable us to overcome them!
The Lord God is my strength; He will make my feet like deer’s feet, And He will make me walk on my high hills. Habakkuk 3:19 NKJV
I believe God will give me the strength to do the impossible. I can tread upon and rise above the obstacles in my life. I can live an abundant life. I can live with a song in my heart and a smile on my face. I can serve Jesus without fear of failure and rejection!
God can give you the strength to do the impossible. You can rise above and tread upon the obstacles in your life. You can live an abundant life today. You can live with a song in your heart and a smile on your face today. You can serve the Lord of Lords today!
Facing the challenges life presents is not as difficult as worrying about them. Making difficult decisions is not as gut wrenching as stressing out about them.
Do what you can with what you have right where you are and leave the rest to Jesus. Let the Lord be God. Let Jesus be your strength! Walk through life in the boldness of righteousness!
Do not live like a pinball in the game of life bouncing off one set of circumstances after another. Jesus is with you watching over you and protecting from seen and unseen dangers. The circumstances of life cannot overtake the righteous!
