Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. ~ Proverbs 3:5-6

Often you may face obstacles in life. You did not anticipate them, did not ask for them, and many times you have no plan on how to overcome them. Earthly sources don't have the answer, self help books don't offer you a way out, the answer is trusting in the Lord.

The life that God gave to us has morphed into a major challenge to our spirit and our health. It has been unkind and filled with demonic energy. To survive, you must connect to a power source that is greater and more powerful than demonic energy. The source that enables you to control your responses to negative stimuli, and overcome obstacles and challenges is Jesus Christ.

Secure your relationship with Him through prayer, meditation and reading His life story.

“Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!” ~ Psalm 46:10

In times of trouble, your first reaction is panic, fear, and worry. You are frazzled as you comprehend the gravity of the situation, then you worry that it is unsolvable. It is in those times of fear and fretting when you must Be still.

When you are at war against any enemy, you must first be still, calm the spirit, and call on the Lord to guide your steps. God is telling you that "I am GOD, I am All Powerful, and you are my child." When you know this, you understand the value of having a well maintained relationship with the Father.

Knowing the power of God eases your worry. Having a solid relationship with Him lets you know that you are never alone.. and whatever comes your way, He walks with you, He has the solution and His promise to never forsake you is assurance that He has control of your situation, and He will turn problems around and make them work for your good.
