The week started off great, and then out of nowhere, anxiety hit me like a ton of bricks. The lies screaming so fiercely in my face made it nearly impossible to hear the small whisper of God’s words speaking truth to me. Welcome to Coffee Hour with Chicklit Power and Faith-Filled Friday with Trench Classes United.
Have you ever experienced that, panic like a wave of the ocean threatening to overwhelming you?
I fought against it with all my strength and with the strength of the Lord, I decided, to praise God for all He had done for me and continues to do for me. it sounds easy to do, but during this time it took all of me to see any good. Obedience slowly calmed the storm, and then another crashing wave of lies would take me deep beneath the seas. As I cried out in desperation, I was reminded of where my help comes from; it comes from the Lord! As I was trembling, the emotion and lies were almost too much to bear and God showed up in an unsuspecting place: Facebook! God put in my line of sight a song I never heard before. Let me share a bit of it with you.
“Jesus, Jesus you make the darkness tremble! Jesus, Jesus you silence fear.”
Oh how these words resonated in my soul. I sang this with all my heart and declared Gods Amazing truth over me! Jesus, knew I needed this song right then and there, and I could feel the sea parting, and that I could once again breath, and I could clearly hear the whisper of Gods voice. He never left me, I know he sent His heavenly host to fight this battle for me.
I am learning that the enemy is threatened by us. He desperately wants to keep us distracted and unfocused, so we are no longer focused on our one true love at these times.
Beloveds, can you relate or is this something you are experiencing now? Please open your Bibles or reach out to prayer partners; rebuke the lies of the enemy and reassure yourself that they don’t belong with you. God is our helper, protector, and truth speaker. We are never alone! Hallelujah! I pray this scripture resonates deeply in your hearts and encourages you as it did me. Speak this Psalm of truth over you today: Psalm 121
1 I look up to the mountains--
does my help come from there?
2 My help comes from the Lord,
who made heaven and earth!
3 He will not let you stumble;
the one who watches over you will not slumber.
4 Indeed, he who watches over Israel
never slumbers or sleeps.
5 The Lord himself watches over you!
The Lord stands beside you as your protective shade.
6 The sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon at night.
7 The Lord keeps you from all harm
and watches over your life.
8 The Lord keeps watch over you as you come and go,
both now and forever.
