He Makes a Way

With God’s help we will do mighty things, for He will trample down our foes. – (Psalm 108:13, NLT)

Only God can make us strong. Only God can defeat our enemies! – (Psalm 108:13, ERV)

 

Sometimes, our enemies are those who oppose that which we know needs to be done. However, so often, our greatest enemy in accomplishing the very things that God has called us to do, is ourselves. Fear, doubt, time constraints, lack – every conceivable reason why we should not be able to do the very thing that He is calling us to do, rises within our hearts and minds and challenges us, telling us it is impossible. On our own, it usually is. That being said, with God’s help, we can do whatever it is that He is calling us to do. He provides the strength, courage, time and resources needed, just as they are needed, so that each next step will be met, if we only dare brave to keep moving forward. May we rise up in faith, trusting that God will provide all that we need to do whatever He is asking, and that all of the seeming impossibilities will fade as we choose to keep moving forward. God makes a way where there seems to be no way.

 

The dreams He’s planted,

the promises made;The Reason for Reverence

are for our pursuit,

as God makes a way.

Regardless of size,

and our perceived lack;

our God is greater,

and He has our back.

He goes before us,

and prepares the way;

we‘re meant to press on,

seek His will each day.

Where we are headed,

may be a slow climb;

but each day take steps,

all His will, not mine.

Lord, renew our strength,

flood us with Your grace;

take opposition,

grant us strength to race.

 

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that with Your help, we can do mighty things. Thank You that You trample our foes, and silence the voices that try to tell us that the things You call us to do are impossible. Thank You that You can make us strong to trust You to provide all that we need to do what You are asking. Forgive us for allowing anyone or anything to have a voice that speaks louder than Yours. Teach us to trust You more, so that we would hold fast to that which You have spoken, no matter how things appear. Show us how to love others in a way that blesses and encourages them to run their own race with the strength and endurance that You alone provide. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we trust You and Your help to do mighty things in Your strength. Amen.

He fights our battles,

may we sing His praise;

all honor to Him,

the Keeper of days.

We take position,

stand firm in our faith;

do not be afraid,

when foes we must face.

Our deliverance,

lies in God alone;

be not discouraged,

the outcome is known.

“You will not have to fight this battle.  Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the Lord will give you, O Judah and Jerusalem.  Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.  Go out and face them tomorrow, and the Lord will be with you.” – (2 Chronicles 20:17)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that our battles belong to You, and that we are only called to what You ask us to do.  Grant us ears to hear You, and hearts to understand, so that we may stand firm in our faith and forever trust in You.  Forgive us for our fear and discouragement, and please grant us reminders of Your strength and Your presence in the midst of our messes.  Thank You that when we abide in You, we never stand alone.  Grant us courage for every foe we may face.  Please strengthen those in the throes of the fight, and may all know that victory is found in You.  Help us to encourage and strengthen each other in You, so that many may come to know the help that comes from Your mighty hands.  All praise to You, God.  Amen.
