The thing about this life with Jesus is that it completely hinges on faith. We need to know who God says He is, and believe in faith that what He says is true. This gets hard in life this side of Heaven. There is opposition. There is heartache. There is trial and tribulation. Faith is what keeps us clinging to His truth regardless of our feelings.
In the midst of these seasons where faith gets hard, we need protection. We need to know we are chosen and elect to receive God’s love by Someone capable of caring for us.
“Whoever goes to the Lord for safety,
whoever remains under the protection of the Almighty,
can say to him,
‘You are my defender and protector.
You are my God; in you I trust.’”-Psalm 91:1-2 (GNT)
When we face the temptation of our old sin and humanity we need to know that there is something and Someone better than ourselves and that we are not left to define our goodness or defend our redemption. When we are facing opposition and have others coming up against us, we need to know that we will never be left behind… forgotten… or abandoned.
In all of these times, when our faith is being pressed on all sides, may we proclaim over our lives, our families and our salvation, “You are my God! In You I trust!”
Wherever your faith is being tested today, I charge you to stop in your tracks, bend down on your knees and proclaim His might and your trust. He is protecting you. Choose to live in that safety today, no matter what circumstances may tell you otherwise.
