As I celebrate another year of life today, Iâ€™m reminded of what God has done for me. No matter what difficulty Iâ€™ve faced over the year, God has drawn me out. Hallelujah! When I felt overwhelmed, God reached out His hand. He wouldnâ€™t let me sink, and He wouldnâ€™t let me slip. He took hold of me and rescued me from the deep waters of opposition that raged against me.
He will do the same for you. Scripture says that when the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will raise up a barrier against him. If you are facing adversity, know that you are not facing it alone. God is with you, and He is for you. He will draw you out!
Today, I say to all of my friends and those that follow me on social media, who over the past year may have been affected by major difficultities of life, know that you have only made it this far because God reached down, held you, rescued you and drew you out. Hallelujah! Today, on the day of my birth, I know that it was God who was working behind the scenes, that has brought me this far and Heâ€™ll do the same for you. He will bring us out better and stronger.
“He reached down from on high and took hold of me; He drew me out of deep waters. He rescued me from my powerful enemyâ€¦”(Psalm 18:16-17, NIV)?
Pray With Me
Yahweh, thank You for Your grace and mercy that has held me together this year. Father, I reach out my hand to You today, knowing that You have been an ever present help in my day of trouble. God, I thank You for another year of life, and in advance for all that You are doing, and for bringing me to a place of peace, in Jesusâ€™ Name! Amen.
