The Scriptures are all powerful in breaking down strongholds, raising up those who are pressed down, and guiding us into experiencing the Lord’s victory over all things. In this segment we set forth a series of subjects with appropriate Scriptures that strengthen faith, and lead to overcoming in the Lord.
Subject areas will be changed regularly, and previous scriptural readings and commentaries may be accessed by clicking different weeks in the calendar below.
Oh, how great is Your goodness, which You have laid up for those who fear You, which You have prepared for those who trust in You in the presence of the sons of men! You shall hide them in the secret place of Your presence from the plots of man; You shall keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues. Ps:19-20.
To fear God is to revere him, to obey Him, and to trust Him. When you display your reverence and trust of Gods faithfulness before your fellow man, He will draw you into His abiding presence, and keep you safe from the evil plots of those under the control of Satan.
But as for me, I trust in You, O Lord; I say, You are my God. My times are in Your hand; deliver me from the hand of my enemies, and from those who persecute me. Ps 31:14-15.
Revelation 12:11 says, And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. In this reading we have an example in Davids testimony of his belief and trust in God, a testimony that breaks the power of Satan, and paves the way for Gods victory to be manifested. His belief that his times were in Gods hands, is an affirmation that he was in Gods keeping, and no one could snatch him out of Gods hands before Gods timing.
Oh, love the Lord, all you His saints! For the Lord preserves the faithful, and fully repays the proud person. Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, all you who hope in the Lord. Ps 31:23-24.
To hope in a spiritual sense is to have an assurance of Gods faithfulness to preserve those who love Him, and trust in His faithful care and protection. He shall strengthen your heart assures us that He will remove anxiety and fear, things that also have an adverse effect on the health of our physical hearts.
