Drowning under Waves of Hopelessness? There is #AlwaysHope
Do you feel like you are drowning under emotions? Have your enemies (circumstances) come in like a flood and NOW your life is flooded with overwhelming hopelessness?
Running, David was Drowning under Waves of Emotional Hopelessness
David too was overwhelmed! He was running while his enemies were searching for him. Even while hiding in a cave David was overcome by his emotions. However, he cried out to God! Psalm 18 is a remarkable remembrance of God’s faithfulness when His enemy surrendered him like a flood.
David was a man after God’s own heart!
David was a man after God’s own heart! Did he sin? Yes! However, David humbled himself asking God’s forgiveness! It’s in that forgiveness David wins the battle. Consequently, He lived a righteous life asking God to reward his Faithfulness.
“The Lord has dealt with me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands he has rewarded me.” Psalms 18:20 NIV
GOD’s Way is Perfect!
Perfectionism is unattainable! We strive and strive to be perfect and holy in accordance with God’s Word but that is a feat of impossibility. If we consecutively repent of our sins of pride then we open the floodgates of heaven and forgiveness flows through our lives. We begin to live a life Worthy of Praise by incorporating God’s Word daily into our every day lifestyle. I delight in God’s Word every morning I encounter my God through my Bible App https://bible.com
““As for God, his way is perfect: The Lord’s word is flawless; he shields all who take refuge in him.” Psalms 18:30 NIV
God Arms (Trains) us for Battle
In studying God’s Word I am able to comprehend and correctly respond to whatever situation occurs in my life! God arms me with HIS Strength.
“It is God who arms me with STRENGTH and keeps my way secure. You give me your shield of victory, and your right hand sustains me; your help has made me great.” Psalms 18:32 NIV
Yes, God Arms me for battle YET, the victory has already been won. Henceforth, I will Praise and Exalt my God no matter how I feel or what my circumstances entail.
“You armed me with strength for battle; you humbled my adversaries before me.” Psalms 18:34 NIV
Exalt and Praise Be to God my Savior, my Avenger!
“The Lord lives! Praise be to my Rock! Exalted be God my Savior” Psalms 18:46NIV
“He is the God who avenges me, who subdues nations under me, who saves me from my enemies. You exalted me above my foes; from a violent man you rescued me.” Psalms 18:47NIV
“Therefore, I will praise you, Lord, among the nations; I will sing the praises of your name.” Psalms 18:49NIV
The Victory is Ours! Walk in It
“He gives his king great victories; he shows unfailing love to his anointed, to David and to his descendants forever.”
Psalms 18:50 NIV
