"I will lift up my eyes to the hills from whence comes my help? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth."
Psalm 121: 1, 2
Trouble surrounds us everyday. For some of us a fire rages. We foresee the impending danger. Over the mountains, the smoke curls with a tail wind of flaming terror. Make no mistake about it fire consumes everything in its path. So, what do you and I do when terror invades our world? Do we run in fear? Perhaps! Or, do we practice the Kind David principle for successful living.
Eventually everyone faces a terror so overwhelming that our heart's faint within us. The fiery darts of our enemy knows no mercy. Satan wonders about your day looking for a foothold. Everything and everybody is fair game for this enemy. But, remember this, his raging firestorm of defeat needs a defenseless soul to fuel its flames. Don't become this defenseless soul.
Only the limitless power from Jesus Christ delivers those that trust in his resurrection power. Remember this morning that your victory depends our your point of view. Over the hills an army of angels waits for the commander-in-chief's orders. At the name of Jesus, the flames retreat, the walls crumble, and the enemy runs for cover. Remember always, when confronted by overwhelming defeat that: My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth. Then and only then will your day proceed with courage, grace, mercy, and victorious living.
