But God! - Joel Osteen Ministries daily devotion 16 October Monday
"O LORD, how many are my
foes! How many rise up against me! ...But you are a shield around me, O
LORD; you bestow glory on me and lift up my head." (Psalm 3:1-3, NIV)
David wrote this verse, He was in a very difficult situation. He was
actually running for his life from his very own son who wanted to kill
him and take over the throne. Can you imagine?! David was probably
feeling overwhelmed, distraught, heartbroken, betrayed and abandoned.
Have you ever felt that way? But notice that David didn’t just tell the
Lord all about his problems. He told the Lord about his faith when he
said, “But You, God, are a shield around me…” David made the choice to
focus on God’s goodness no matter what.
have to remember, circumstances may be tough, but God is working behind
the scenes on your behalf. You may have a difficult relationship, but
God is your Restorer today. You may have an overwhelming need, but God
is your Provider today. The doctors may have told you that you have an
incurable disease, but God is your Healer today. Things may look
impossible today, BUT WITH GOD, all things are possible! If you’ll keep
that constant attitude of faith and victory, you’ll see the hand of God
move in your life, and you will experience the life of victory He has in
store for you!
A Prayer for Today
thank You for always being faithful and working in my life. Today I
open my heart to You and choose to focus on You instead of my
circumstances. I know that with You, all things are possible in Jesus
