"By this I know"
By Joel Osteen
“We’ve all come through challenges and difficulties that should have stopped us. There have been problems that seemed too big. Obstacles that looked insurmountable, but somehow, we made it through. We’ve seen doors open that shouldn’t have opened, promotion that we didn’t deserve, people who for no reason went out of their way to be good to us. That wasn’t luck. It wasn’t just a good break. That was the hand of God pushing back forces of darkness, protecting us, healing us, promoting us. David says in Psalm 41, “By this I know the Lord is on my side. He has not let my enemies triumph over me.” When David looked at where he was and thought about all he had been through to get there – the rejection, his father leaving him out. King Saul trying to kill him, people slandering him, armies coming together and attacking him – he recognized that the whole time, God was behind the scenes, fighting his battles, not letting those enemies defeat him. It gave him a boldness, a confidence. He knew the Lord was on his side.”
Prayer (by author), Dear heavenly Father, help us to know today that there is nothing that we will be faced with that you cannot help us to overcome. We thank You for all the victories You have given us. We thank You for your Holy Spirit and the comfort and guidance He provides us. In Jesus name, amen.
