Psalms 28:7 “The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and He helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise Him.”
In good times and bad, David found strength in GOD’s power and presence, hope in GOD’s promises, and courage in GOD’s provision and protection. The LORD was both his personal strength when his own strength failed and a shield against fear, doubt, and those who sought his life. -We too can find strength, hope and courage in the power and presence of the LORD. We can practice casting our anxieties on the LORD by stepping away from attempts to allowing our worries to control us. Instead of entertaining thoughts that will ruin us in our faith, let us lean into and trust the reassuring words of GOD. Once we do this, we can see that our anxiety is not a thing on which we should focus. GOD’s Word and His SPIRIT will give us joy, peace and strength through CHRIST JESUS our LORD.
O LORD, I praise and thank You for being my STRENGTH and my SHIELD; my heart trusts in You, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to You in song, for You are my strength. Thank You that You are my refuge, my hiding place, my shield and my strong tower. Today, I welcome You and I pray Your will be done in my life for Your praise, honor and glory. In JESUS’ Great Name. Amen.
Keeping You In Our Prayers,
