Are You Anchored by Our Defender!?
Hey B.F.F’s I have a few questions for you Who or what have you been anchored to? What has a hold of your faith? What kind of foundation are you standing on? Who is defending you? At a time where change and turmoil have spiked all around the world, I want to remind you that we have to rely on Christ, who is our firm foundation. “He will not let your foot slip— he who watches over you will not slumber;” (Psalms 121:3 N.I.V.) God knows everything that is happening all around the world, and it’s up to us to be anchored in his word and then allow him to defend and protect us during these times. In this case, the year 2020, where fear and uncertainty have set in before the year has even started good, I come to say this to you; no matter what circumstances life throws at you, we must not bow down to it. We must not let fear win, and even though the news and social media outlets unknowingly may prompt you to feel fear and feel defeated by this virus pandemic, you have to know our defense is Christ! This word stands no matter who you are because of who he is “A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling.” Psalms 68:5 N.I.V.
He is our great defender, and it’s our job to listen and follow his commandments. So “Nevertheless, God’s solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription: “The Lord knows those who are his,” and, “Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness.”(2 Timothy 2:19 NIV) It is time to come back to God, do, and say what he has placed on your heart.
So my next question is, What are you saying?! It is time to “Get out the message— GOD Rules! He put the world on a firm foundation; He treats everyone fair and square.” (Psalm 96:10 MSG) So in this hour, our faith has to speak. Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks. We must not go down in silence because our words have power. So speak to these circumstances, tell it to cease and desist. B.F.F.'s it is the time! Time to do what God has called for you to do. Please remember God is our defender, and the enemy wants to bring you out and shame you, but it doesn’t matter because God has your back, the victory is already won! So stop running, stop crying & began to say God is greater, God is bigger! “He won’t let you stumble; your Guardian God won’t fall asleep. Not on your life! Israel’s Guardian will never doze or sleep. GOD’s your Guardian, right at your side to protect you— Shielding you from sunstroke, sheltering you from moonstroke. GOD guards you from every evil; he guards your very life. He guards you when you leave, and when you return, he guards you now, he guards you always.” (Psalm 121:3-8 MSG) I leave you with these simple words: Our praise and faith has to see the bigger picture. This is the hour where the sons rise and take our rightful place & stop letting things of this world beat us down. Listen to this song and allow God to have his way and minister to you through these lyrics.
PRAYER: God, I trust you and take you at your word! This year 2020 is my year of faith and opportunity. I thank you for saving me and being my defender. I thank you for allowing me to be anchored in your word because your love is my greatest defense. The best decision I have ever made was to trust in you, so Lord let my praise become my breakthrough, my song become my triumph, and allow my worship to be my warfare. I believe my victory is in you, in your mighty name, I pray. -AMEN Until next time with LOVE, GRACE, and A HAPPY FACE, I love you!
