Testimony Tuesday

“But You, O Lord are a holy shield for me, My glory and the One who lifts up my head. I cried to the Lord with my voice, And He heard me from His holy hill.” Psalm 3:3-4

God has been my shield. He has heard each of my cries as He sits on High looking low. Thank You Father! Today I received some good news from my doctor, another battle won in the war He’s fighting on my behalf. 

It’s no coincidence that the Lord gave me a word for 2015, “still.” Still as in “Be still and know that I am God” Psalm 46:10 and “The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.” Exodus 14:14. He knew in advance the magnitude of what I would be facing. 

Despite His faithfulness, I continue to struggle with whether or not I deserve His goodness. But I came to the conclusion today that I don’t. However God “remembers that we are dust” and covers us with His grace and mercy daily. Thank You Lord!

Anyway, one thing is clear: it’s not me who wants good, it’s God who knows what’s good for me while I keep wishing wrong things. I’m a fool who needs to learn to shut up and be still. God help me be still and don’t let me do my follies.

Jesus pointed out “who can add a single cubit” to their lives from worrying. It’s an exercise in futility and demonstrates a lack of trust and faith in God b

  2. I believe God taught one thing to the Jews for forty years in the deserts of Sinai: to follow God wherever He takes you. It’s very difficult yet equally important! He loves us completely.
