God is our strength, provider, and protector. He is a very present help in the times of need. God is aware of the things we need to conquer in our lives, before we even have visibility on them. Psalm 46:1 informs us that “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in times of need”. When we turn our eyes to God, setbacks become valuable experience. We no longer live in bondage because we now know and understand that regardless of life circumstances, heartaches, or struggles in the midst of it all; God is right there with us.
We cannot allow ourselves to become so discouraged that we become fixated on the past, (past mistakes, failures, what we should have, and could have done) instead of focusing on moving forward in faith. God has opportunities, promises, and purposes waiting to be revealed and presented to us. As women, as mothers, sisters, daughters, wives, girl bosses, friends, and sheroes; we have to constantly remind ourselves “she shall not be moved”, then make every effort to conquer our struggles by FAITH. When we become rooted in the Word of God disappointments start to turn into victories and the victim soon becomes the survivor. God’s desire is for us to live a fulfilling, faith-led, joyous, and prosperous life. He never said that it would be easy, but he did promise to comfort and guide us through it all.
JessThoughts....It is imperative that in this season we remain faithful and prayerful, on our glamorous days as well as those trying days. Regardless of what may be going on in our lives or around us, we have to start operating within the power that God has blessed us with. God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved, is truly one of the most precious promises God has blessed us with. That tells us that although life is designed to throw obstacles across our paths, we can still stand firm on the word of God with immovable, unshakable, unwavering faith.
Philippians 4:6 reminds us to not worry or be anxious for anything, but by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, to submit those requests up to God. Today I challenge you to never allow the struggles of life to detour you from your purpose or the promises of God. Build a solid foundation with faith based confidence knowing that if God called you to it, he will surely see you through it.
"God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved; God shall help her, just @ the break of dawn" (Psalm 46:5)
Peace, Love, & Blessings
