Good Evening to All!
The Book of Psalms is one of, if not the Most liked books of the Bible.
Psalm 91 is a passage that has been quoted many, many times.
(9) Because you have made the LORD who is my refuge, Even the Most High your
(10) No Evil shall befall you,
Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;
(11) For He shall give His angels charge over you,
To keep you in all your ways,
(12) In their hands they shall bear you up,
Lest you dash your foot against a stone.
(13) You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra,
The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.
(14) "Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him;
I will set him on high, because he has known My name.
(15) He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will deliver him and honor him.
(16) With long life I will satisfy him,
And show him My salvation.
(Psalm 91:9-16 NKJV)
This is a passage that I like to refer to when I am wanting to encourage people. We tend to make our problems SO BIG, and forget how big God is. If we will stop focusing on our problems until the seem to big to handle and go to God with them, we would see that they aren't near as bad as we seem to have originally thought. My Pastor used a great example one day while teaching on this. He pointed to a point on the wall, and ask if we could see it. Naturally, we said no, because it was just a small pencil mark. then he had some people come up to the wall and asked them again. Of course then they could see the point on the wall. What he was trying to get at is that by completely focusing on the problem and worrying about it, we allow it to get bigger and bigger until it consumes us. If we would STOP and think about God and How BIG HE is, and that there is NOTHING that He cannot handle, our problems would seem a lot smaller.
I challenge you. Copy this Passage down or print this out and put it somewhere you can see it all of the time. When you start worrying about your problems, or even just getting depressed Say a little prayer and ask God to take over this problem. Remind Him that He says in His Word that the battles we face are NOT our battles they are His because He said He would fight them for us, then READ THIS PASSAGE. I guarantee God will hear your prayer and this passage will help you and lift your spirit. As long as we have a power like this to hold us up, how can we be afraid? If God is for us, who can be against us? Romans 8:31 NKJV
Good Night to All and May God Bless!
