“He makes wars cease to the end of the earth; He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two; He burns the chariot in the fire. Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth! The LORD of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah”Psalms 46:9-11 NKJV
We serve and awesome God. He holds all things in His hands and He has spoken all things into existence. Sometimes we lose sight of how awesome the Lord is because we get focused on the circumstances that stand before us. But nothing is impossible.
I often meditate upon this promise because it puts my spirit at rest. Many times in life we can feel overwhelmed, but knowing that God is fully in control of every circumstance allows us to walk in His peace.
His peace is beyond human understanding. The peace of God exist in the midst of the storm. We walk in His peace when we are surrounded on every side. No matter what we face we can know in our hearts that Jesus is greater. No matter the circumstance, no matter the diagnosis, no matter the trial we can know that our God is greater.
He is our shield and our protector. The enemy will lie to us and tell us that God has forgotten or abandoned us. But the truth is He will never leave us not forsake us. Keep your eyes focused on the Lord this day and know that your redeemer lives. He will have His way and move in His due time. You are not forgotten. Hold fast my brother and sister because the Lord of glory is coming. His glory, power, authority, and love will be made manifest in us. Hold fast and stand upon the promises of God. He is ever faithful.
