Verse Of The Day : For you have delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling. Psalms 116:8
Thought of The Day : When we escape death, tears and destruction God is the power behind it, for that is His mercy.
LISTEN : God never fails. He is always there for those who fear Him, believe and hope in His mercy. He delights in their prosperity. The Bible says, “The LORD takes pleasure in them that fear him, in those that hope in his mercy.” (Psalms 147:11). Whom God loves He delivers from death; wipe away tears from his eyes, and keeps his feet from falling. It is not possible to be defeated when God is the leader of your battle. My dear, are you confused and frustrated? Have things got so bad with you that you think it’s all over with you? Relax! We have a God who does great things. He will change your story. (Jeremiah 32:27). No matter how bad a situation is, if it is handed over to God by faith, change happens without delay. (1 Peter 5:7; Mark 5:25-34). Shattered dreams and heartbreak are fixed in God’s presence. Broken homes and marriages are mended in His presence; a death sentence can be changed to longevity; sicknesses and diseases are replaced with good health and vitality through the power of God. Beloved, God can cancel the death sentence that is designed against your life. He can wipe your tears away and keep your feet from falling. In our verse of the day David said, “For you have delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling.”(Psalms 116:8). So, if you can put your trust in God He can shield you from evil with His hands. God is powerful enough to dislodge forces of darkness and strip them of their weapons just for your sake. Friend, be strong in the Lord. Don’t worry about how ugly and shattered your life is; rather trust God for a miraculous transformation, and believe that God will keep you from disasters and heartbreak. Henceforth, keep saying to yourself – God will be there for me no matter what! Be wise!
