Psalm 28:7
‘The LORD is my Strength and my Shield; my heart trusts in Him, and He helps me.’

We have to constantly remind ourselves of what we are fighting against. We often direct our defence against other individuals. The question is how does God see it?

Ephesians 6:12 ‘For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.’

When we grasp this aspect, it can bring us great freedom and release.

Psalm 138:7 ‘Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me; You will stretch forth Your hand against the wrath of my enemies.’

Please note that it says that God will stretch out His hand against the wrath of the enemies and not against the enemies themselves. Your fight is not against flesh and blood! Remember this.

God wants to step into our lives and save us from those things that would seek to destroy us. God does not want to see us destroyed.

Psalm 138:7 ‘Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me; You will stretch forth Your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and Your right hand will save me.’

Psalm 23:4 ‘Even when walking through the dark valley of death I will not be afraid, for You are close beside me, guarding, guiding all the way.’

This is God’s plan and purpose. Claim this as a promise for your life – take hold of it!

God is at work in each of our lives. He is using the things we are facing or going through to work on various aspects of our lives. Firstly, let me remind you that God has not forgotten you. No matter how you may be feeling – God is there for you!

Psalm 138:6 ‘Though the Lord is on high, yet He regards the lowly.’

He knows what you are facing, and He is aware of what you are going through, even those things deep within your heart. God wants to bring those things that He is working on in our lives to a point of completion and perfection. God does not want you to battle with the same thing on and on.

Psalm 138:8 ‘The Lord will work out His plans for my life!’ (LBT)

Psalm 138:8 ‘The Lord will perfect that which concerns me!’ (NKJV)

The question is, can we find the courage, to rest in His faithfulness, knowing that no matter what happens, He will be faithful? Let go and let God!
