More than conquerors

I lift up my eyes to the mountains - where does my help come from? 
My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip - he who watches over you will not slumber;
indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.
The LORD watches over you - the LORD is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night.
The LORD will keep you from all harm - he will watch over your life; the LORD will watch your coming and going both now and forevermore.
Psalm 121 AMP

This week we, as a family, have been reminded of so many things, including 

  • to keep lifting our eyes up - to Him
  • to always look to the LORD for help
  • that He watches over us

When in our world there seems to be no other options, He always has options. We are so grateful to have received His mercy and grace this week.  There is one song that I have been playing over and over - Amazing Grace

I pray that what God has done for Victoria this week brings encouragement and hope into your life, and a knowing that He makes a way, always.

No test or temptation that comes your way is beyond the course of what others have had to face. All you need to remember is that God will never let you down; he'll never let you be pushed past your limit; he'll always be there there to help you through it. 1 Corinthians 10:31 The Message

This is true. He doesn't let us down - He just does things differently to what we expect. He doesn't let us be pushed past our limit - He knows our weaknesses, and wants to fill us with His strength. He's always there to help us through it - He doesn't walk away and leave us to go through it alone, He is beside us, and often carrying us.

Question for today, what are you looking to the LORD to do? We are still looking to the LORD to bring complete healing for Victoria. We are thanking Him every day for what He has done and what He will do.  

So today, let's give thanks for what God has done, and more importantly for Who He is. 

Jesus said to him, I am the Way, the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father except by (through) Me. John 14:6 AMP

And in Him, who are we? We are more than conquerors...

Yet amid all these things we are more than conquerors and gain a surpassing victory through Him Who loved us. For I am persuaded beyond doubt (am sure) that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things, impending and threatening nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:37-39 AMP
