Faith Strengthens

Our souls need strength from the spirit!

In times of weakness our souls (mind,will, and emotions) search for strength. Well, I know mine does. It searches for a security to hold onto and be held by that can only come from the embrace of truth from God.

Its in those weak places where crying out to God can meet the depths of need from within. Journaling, worship, prayer, meditating in truth and often times quietening the soup to hear the still small voice of the spirit saying “Daughter, I am looking out for you” comes and comforts the heart.

strengthening the souls of the disciples, encouraging them to continue in the faith, and saying, “Through many tribulations we must enter the kingdom of God.”
Acts 14:22 NASB

Relying on Him in all things helps us to trust in God and strengthen out souls. It helps shift our mindset from things of this world to setting out thoughts and affections on things above(Colossians 3:2).

This helps us persevere in the faith and keep pressing on knowing in whom we have trust and hope to he ever with us to see us through. The anchoring of our faith in the Rock that is Jesus helps when trials come.

Yes, we may be swayed in our emotions, all in our logic, and bend our will to be of our own choices. But, with enough of the truth if the word in us we wont go too far off course and get back on track and end up being stronger than we once were.

May we keep fighting the good fight of faith with our spiritual weapons, yeilding the sword and going to war in prayer. Battle prep has a training and strengthening ground and its on between trials we should be prepping for the next battle.

Time Spent

How we manage our time in a day is up to us!

I do believe I am going to incorporate spending more time in the word of God and studying.

One day who knows when though, but we must prepare nonetheless to hide the word in our heart for when the actual written text is taken from us.

In my current studies of Psalm 119 one of the verses are: “I have hidden your word in my heart.” Now that is a statement to behold. The psalmist proclaimed that he hid the word of the Lord in his heart. After all, most if not all the psalms were penned by David. King David known as a “man after Gods own heart”. Yes David has his faults and short comings as we all do. But still he was known as such.

Have we hidden the word in our heart?

I may have some nuggets in me, but the question then becomes are those nuggets enough to hold me in the test, trial, tribulation or temptation comes?

How is my attitude, stance, faith, emotions, words spoken when those thing come? Because those will reveal if you do or do not have enough of the word hidden within or not.

Do I faulter and retreat into the old of worry, doubt, fear and anxiety? Or, do I see it for what it is, cast the care on the Lord, do what I can and go on by faith that it is all gonna work out?

Its our choice!

My choice (surrender) is pressing me to insert more into my heart and mind to be able to fight the good fight of faith! Learning to walk more by faith and not sight. Allowing his truth and goodness to pierce the dark places within to bring newness and light.
