You don’t have to be brave on your own!

by montejosmemorials on February 24, 2017

I pulled this book off of the shelf as I was cleaning this week and realized what a forgotten gem I had found! It’s out of print, but the author has written many more books.

The Psalms are an incredible tool for us to reset our worship! I know I teased you with this book that’s not available, but here’s the gist of it! Choose a Psalm and meditate on a specific attribute of God in that Psalm all day. Journal, post it on the mirror, however you like to keep things in front of you, to meditate on what you’ve learned from that Psalm.

Today I looked at Psalm 34, focusing on God as our Refuge.

I will extol the Lord at all times; his praise will always be on my lips.

My soul will boast in the Lord; let the afflicted hear and rejoice.

Glorify the Lord with me; let us exalt his name together.

I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears.

Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame.

This poor man called, and the Lord heard him; he saved him out of all his troubles.

The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them.

Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.

As our children have gotten bigger, I have found myself more fearful in certain aspects of being a mom than I was when they were smaller. Even though I have always believed God has loaned them to me, when they were small and I was able to physically take care of them, it felt easier. The bigger they get, it’s more of a walk of faith, trusting God to take care of them. This Psalm says “He delivered me from all my fears.”

One of the things God has led me to do is recite back to him what he’s shown me in his word. The enemy loves to bring doubt, and if we keep positive affirmations coming out of our mouth, we strengthen our belief and cause the enemy to retreat. You don’t have to be brave on your own, but because of who you are through Jesus.

Do you struggle with fear? Speak out, “I have been delivered from all my fears!”

Is it shame? Remind the enemy, “I am radiant, not covered with shame.”

“I am saved, I am delivered, I am blessed!!!”

You will believe what you speak, so speak life!

If you are reading this and don’t have the security of knowing God, take that first step. He loves you and wants you to experience the benefits of his word here and now, as well as the security of eternal life. Ask him to take over your life, forgive you for your past mistakes and sin, and to set you on a new path. Connect with a local church, so you can learn and grow.
