Standing on God's Promises

Standing On His Promises: He Fights For Me!

Standing in a hurricane

Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God. – Psalm 42:5 NIV

Why do I fret? Worry devours peace, anxiety robs sleep. Why are you downcast, oh my soul? Where is your hope?

Hope in God! Hope in God!

The year’s been bumpy already, you know? Ever have a string of events that feel like crashing breakers? The fierce waters erode what I thought were solid foundations. But, in the middle of one of these tides, God showed me something amazing.

He fights for me.

Wow. I don’t know if you’ve ever realized that. He doesn’t just protect me, He fights for me.

That changes things. I don’t have to figure out how to do these battles. He fights for me. I don’t have to worry that my strength will fail. He fights for me. I don’t have to lie anxiously scheming out a plan. He fights for me.

Why am I downcast then? There’s not a good reason. Praise Jesus, the warrior who has fought to the other side of death. He fought for me.


What are you doing here?

Written by one of my favorite bloggers, this reminds me of God’s promises. He will walk with me in the quiet moments of peace and in the fierce, stormy times. He will never leave me.

Thanks, Bill, your words spoke to my heart while I sipped my coffee this morning!

The seeds of doubt creep in. You begin to question your abilities. You don’t know what the next move is.

Welcome to the club!

 1 Kings 19:11-13 NIV

Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake.12 After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper.13 When Elijah heard it, he pulled…
