“If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, now may Israel say” Psalm 124:1, NKJV.
If it had not have been for knowing that the Lord was on my side, I would have already lost it. I would have thrown in the towel a long time ago. When it seemed like I was going down, He would always bring me up. When my family size increased, at the right moment, my income would increase too. When it seemed like my faith had been shipwrecked, He would allow a situation to show me I haven’t changed, and in fact, He made me stronger.
You have seen Him move too much in your past to not trust Him now. He has said time and time again that He is with you, and since He is with you, who can be against you? Your circumstance has no choice but to get better because of His promises. Your tribulation has no choose but to move out of the way of God’s goodness.
The Lord says don’t faint, but hope in Me. The Lord says have faith in Me because it will get better. The Lord says don’t turn from Me, don’t quit on me, because I already am making it better. He won’t let the enemy overcome you. He won’t allow you to go hungry. He won’t let you go without seeing His supernatural favor in your life. God is going to blow your mind with an outcome you didn’t realize He was capable of bringing to pass.
Prayer: Father, it looks like there’s no blessing in sight. But if it had not been for knowing You were on my side, I would have given up. But You are! I believe that it will get better! I choose to keep going and I declare all things are working for my good. Speak to me any direction that I need for this new year and I will follow You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
