“Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid. The LORD, the LORD himself, is my strength and my defense; he has become my salvation.” Isaiah 12:2
And indeed HE is my strength and my defense. In one of my previous posts, I talked about how life can throw so many obstacles at you but trusting in the Lord and leaving it all to him is always the best thing to do.
Sometimes, it can be difficult to stand on your own two feet. Whenever you feel like you can’t put your trust in man (as you shouldn’t always), there is always God…whom you can put your trust in at all times. The best conversations I have is with God. Don’t get me wrong, I have amazing friends (whom I call my sisters), a supportive partner and the best parents EVER; that I can talk to/ turn to during those uneasy stages in life however, as I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned how to keep certain things between myself and the God I serve. The same loving individuals I’ve been blessed with also preach about the importance of trusting and confiding in God as opposed to man at all times. Life has never been easy and at times, I’ve found myself battling with the enemy and always wondering why he wanted to destroy me so badly. Well…first of all, he is the enemy. Second of all, I always remember people saying, “the enemy targets the weak..” well yes he does. Or has he already suceeded with the weak? If he knows your vulnerable points, he will most certainly use that to succeed in his wicked plans. I remember at one stage in my life when I use to pray and talk to God about everything that was bothering me. After closing my prayer and asking God to lift those burdens up, I will go back to worrying, stressing out and feeling extremely unhappy. My prayers were meaningless. I honestly can’t for the life of me understand why I didn’t trust God enough, in the past. I mean he’s never failed me before. But my prayers were so weak and at the time, I felt as if the enemy knew what my weaks points were and he tried to use that to destroy me. Well that was an ultimate fail! I am no longer afraid to put my trust in HIM. Neither am I holding onto any burdens, especially when the Lord himself has told me to let go and be at peace mentally. Happiness is certainly my portion! And it feels great too. Not every day comes easy and there will be unfortunate events happening here and there; but opening up to the Lord and allowing him to give me strength to deal with the bad as well as the good (and knowing when to give it all to him), has been one of the best desicions I ever made.
