Psalm 118:21 I thank you for answering my prayer and giving me victory!
Today was such a day.
Yesterday (I hate to admit) I had a real fight against my negative side all day long. It’s not what I normally experience when I go to church, but it’s what I struggled with yesterday and it leached over into today as well. As I prayed this morning I kept falling asleep and I couldn’t concentrate. That happened when I first started praying every morning but rarely happens now. Later, as I walked around my Jericho I struggled with knowing what to pray beyond concern for friends that I have.
I just couldn’t pray as boldly as I usually can.
Until I started reciting to myself the promises the Lord has given me.
Psalm 25:10 The Lord leads with unfailing love and faithfulness all who keep his covenants and obey his demands.
Psalm 27:14 Wait patiently for the Lord. Be brave and courageous. Yes. Wait patiently for the Lord.
Psalm 27:8 My heart has heard you say, “Come talk with me,” and my heart responds, “Lord, I am coming.”
Proverbs 23:18 You will be rewarded for this: your hope will not be disappointed.
Because we have God’s Word, we have God Himself. Soon I was feeling his strength lighten my load and I was able to grab my belief again.
And it all comes back to the name I have chosen for this film production company:
Thus Far the Lord Has Helped Films.
And so I thank the Lord with Psalms 118:21
I thank You (Lord) for answering my prayers and giving me victory. In Jesus Name, Amen.
