The Lord Is Always There

"The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him." Psalm 28:7
Life is full of its ups and downs and unexpected turns that can take us by surprise. A few ups and downs we can handle most of the time, but when we feel like everything is down and there are very few ups it becomes difficult to navigate the things we are going through. When we do all that we can do to make and we are faced with challenges seemingly every time, we can become weak and want to give up. It is in these times we need to trust The Lord to be our strength. The Scripture reminds us the Lord is our strength and He is our shield to protect us from all dangers. I encourage you today to remember The Lord is your strength, even when things are trying to knock you down. Do not look for your strength in people or things, your strength comes from The Lord. The Lord is your shield, and He will protect you from all things. When you call on The Lord He will be there to help you. When things in life become difficult, and you do not know if you will make it, keep trusting The Lord. When things in life are well, and the sun is shining on you, trust The Lord to keep you. When you are in need do not look to everything and everyone else look to The Lord and He will be all the help you need. You can rejoice and sing praises to His name because you know for yourself, He will never leave you alone and He will always be by your side in every situation. I know where my help comes from, and The Lord is always protecting me and keeping me in all situations. I will sing praises to His name forever, and without a doubt I know, "It's My Year To Get My Thing From My God!"
Lord thank you for always being there to help me. Thank you for never leaving me alone and keeping me in those times of loneliness. Thank you for being my God. I love you Lord. In Jesus Name Amen.
