All My Hope
“The Lord taketh pleasure in them that fear him, in those that hope in his mercy.” Psalm 147:11
There is no doubt that the Lord is all-powerful. His power is shown and displayed in our lives daily. The Lord has and continues to show Himself strong and mighty in all situations in our lives.
The Lord’s Battle
“And that all this assembly may know that the Lord saves not with sword and spear. For the battle is the Lord's, and he will give you into our hand.” 1 Samuel 17:47 (ESV)
We are going to have some battles that we are going to have to fight. We are also going to fight some battles that are not ours to fight, but will find ourselves fighting them. Then there are some battles that we will want to fight, but we will not be able to fight, because they are not our battles.
"And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;" 2 Corinthians 5:18
Every day God blesses us in a variety of ways and many of them we can take for granted. There are days when all will go right and we can see the light at the end of the tunnel, and then there are those days when everything is bleak, dark, and there is no light anywhere.
God Gives Increase
"So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase." 1 Corinthians 3:7
Through the many challenges and ups and downs in life, God has been good to us, and despite all that we have faced we have had some great success in life. We know that it was not ourselves who made the way or opened the door, but we know that it was God; and if it had not been for Him, we could not have been where we are right now.
