I am finding lately, that when I let my mind wander off and not stay focused on God, I notice then that I am not believing God will help me and I am not trusting in his strength. I still try to go through life relying on just myself to figure everything out and I am relying on my own strength. Then I am in danger of being too worried about everything. Recently, God led me to this verse as a reminder to keep trusting and relying on him:.
2 Samuel 22:33 (Holy Bible New International Version):
“It is God who arms me with strength and keeps my way secure,”
Your verse reminds me of these from Psalm 91:1 – 7:
1 Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.[a]
2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”
3 Surely he will save you
from the fowler’s snare
and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
5 You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
That is a beautiful passage, Kathy! Thank you for sharing it.And thank you for all the reminders of how God takes care of us.
Psalm 91 has always brought me comfort since I was a young girl
