DAVID RECOUNTED HIS VICTORIES TO OVERCOME!
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
Life will always be full of challenges, but the Bible says do not be afraid.
Isaiah 41:10 Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Don't be afraid of the things God is calling for you to overcome or grow from. Strength comes by enduring through suffering, challenges, pain, and great difficulty, but be encouraged that the joy of the Lord will give you strength.
When David volunteered to go out and fight the giant Goliath, nobody encouraged him. Everyone told him, "You're too young. You don't have the right armour or weapons. He's much bigger and more experienced than you are," and on and on. Even King Saul questioned David's ability to overcome the boastful Philistine. But David encouraged himself by recounting the victories God had given him in the past.
If you want to do something for God, you must understand that there will be hundreds, maybe thousands of times when Satan will come against you to discourage you. Why? Because he knows you must have the courage to go forward and fulfill God's good plan for your life. When you become discouraged, you become weak and lose the courage you need to go forward. What must you do in times of discouragement? Shake it off in faith and recount the victories God has already given you. Have confidence that He will be strong in your weakness and use you for His glory.
Thankfulness leads to happiness. Be thankful for your journey, no matter what that looks like. Through thankful meditation, the Holy Spirit will enter in when you ask Him to and give you the strength, tools, and power to overcome.
May the glory of God shine bright with you today and always. Continue to support, share and contribute to our magazine where possible so that we can continue to share God's love, inspire faith, and fuel your purpose, in Jesus' name!
Sincerely with all my love,
