The Trials we Face
Are you facing difficulty?
Does everything say “give up” and go on?
Do you feel people are in the way of your progress?
You are facing the same trials many have faced throughout time. Some have been defeated in their strive to move forward, yet because you have faith in Christ you have an assurance that a defeat doesn’t mean an end it means you have been taught.
Many times King David faced enemies in every direction, it could have been defeat but David fled to God for refuge.
Have mercy on me, my God, have mercy on me,
for in you I take refuge.
I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings
until the disaster has passed.
He saw men coming at him like “ravenous beasts”
I am in the midst of lions;
I am forced to dwell among ravenous beasts—
men whose teeth are spears and arrows,
whose tongues are sharp swords.
But David knew His God, he knew what His God can do and David knew how to praise God in a battle, not to give up or give in. He knew to continue moving forward not getting stuck in old details of worry and negativity but instead to
Glorify and Praise God.
My heart, O God, is steadfast,
my heart is steadfast;
I will sing and make music.
So David stayed steadfast. What does God call you to do in a trial so overwhelming you want to run for the hills? Does He say be defeated?
Or does He say, “I am with you, you are not alone.”
More Than Conquerors
If God is for us, who can be against us?
David was praising God in his trials knowing the God with him and that no matter what David had to face he knew his God can not be defeated, so in times of trouble, even if we lose, we will always win because God is with us through it all.
