Who is standing between you and your test?
How well can you stand and face the giants in your life? What do you see when you look at the challenges? What do you see when the enemy is heading your way?
Would you say, "I see something bigger than me!" .... "I see someone who is unbeatable."..."I see something that is unstoppable." ...." I see someone who would crush me to the ground." What do you see? Do you see nothing between you and your test?
Many are the test and trials of life? Many seem too big a problem to overcome. Sometimes the wieght of life's challenges seems like an enormous army coming up against you (alone). It seems like there is no way of escape.
But if you would just stop and look with your heart instead of your eyes...you will see God between you and your enemy. He is the only inevitable, unstoppable, unshakable warrior who will fight and ensure that you overcome and go through the red sea, safely. It is only then you can move unto your next step of prosperity.
2 Chronicles 14:11(NIV) 11 "Then Asa called to the Lord his God and said, “Lord, there is no one like you to help the powerless against the mighty. Help us, Lord our God, for we rely on you, and in your name we have come against this vast army. Lord, you are our God; do not let mere mortals prevailagainst you.”
Be encouraged! It's a new day filled with new blessings. Yesterday's gone, tomorrow is yet to come, today is all we have. Pep-up your morning.
