Faith In The Solid Rock

God is solid and firm and worthy of our trust!

For too long I tried to rely on my strength and will to get things done. Little not knowing at the time that was operating from my strong self-will.

It has taken time and I still struggle with it at times to fully rely on God to be my strength and to pull on Him and His will for my life to submit my will to His.

This is because of building a intimate relationship with God through His word, praying, and worshipping Him for who He is.

In myself I used my strengths as a stronghold and those fortresses were fortified with dececption, self-righteousness, and lies of the world. These have had to be torn down to build new strongholds of the word inside my soul.

“God is my strong fortress; And He sets the blameless in His way.
2 Samuel 22:33 NASB

Now that God has used Pastor Juanita Gibbs powerfully in my life to help bring down those strongholds. Which leave voids that have to be refilled with good things. Those good things come from the word of God.

Slowly constructing new and better strongholds take time, and much meditatiom of thr true word of God. Practicing what His word says to live out and constantly pulling on self-control when things want to pull me away from getting into His word and back into the old ways and stronghold habits.

Trusting fully in His word and resting upon Him in it takes confidence that God is not man who can lie and ee can rest in His faithful goodness. My soul cam take anchor in the solid rock that is God.

Greetings Readers! I began blogging in Aug 2017 about my personal experiences, thing I have going on in my life that I am working toward overcoming. I write my blogs to help encourage others that may be going through some of the things like I have dealt with in life to show them there is help and hope no matter what we are going through in life. My writings have helped me to begin to write my very first book and it is coming along greatly and I sure hope to have it published perhaps next year would be great. So, please stay tuned for that! I want my life to help inspire others to keep going and to not quit when life gets hard. We all may face different things but we can learn from each other if we see how we overcome in an area that another may be struggling in. I write to encourage and uplift to bring a glimmer of hope when there isn't much offered out there in the world today. I have been an avid reader for years and this year has been a year of me putting my writing out there for the world to begin to see as I have of others. ~Love Life ~ Live Life~ ;)

  1. Good post. Sometimes it’s hard to fully give up every area of our lives to God. It can almost feel irresponsible at times, but He always knows best. You’ll only get so far in your own strength.

    1. Thank you. That is true it is hard to give up areas of life to Him. But once we do its a world of difference.

      Our strength is limited where His is limitless. 🙂

  2. He’s the solid rock on which I stand. When we begin to trust Him fully and completely let go it makes a lot of difference and takes the burden off. But of course, doing so isn’t always easy but very much possible.
