Thou art my help.

Psalm 127:1 (NKJV) Unless the LORD builds the house, they labour in vain who build it; unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman stays awake in vain.

Psalm 121:1-2 (NKJV) 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.

This morning I woke up with a song that I haven't heard in ages. I don't know the title but it goes thus..

My help is in the name of the Lord
My help is in the name of the Lord
For the Lord my God is mighty
My help is in the name of the Lord

I consider Psalm 127:1 to be one of the foundational scriptures of my life. It reminds me that the Almighty is the one who is charge of my life. I may try to do things my own way but all I am doing is labouring and in vain.

Lately, I've been stressing about so many thing..the why's, the how's, the when's, the what if's but I can hear the Lord telling me to relax and take it easy. He created me and all He needs from me is to love Him and to trust Him. He is my help because I know that He is the only one who can see me through the situations and circumstances that life brings my way. No man, woman, government or institution can take His place.

I am walking in the peace of God because I am tired of 'labouring'. I'm just telling every situation that "My help is in the name of the Lord" and I'm looking up to JESUS instead of looking at the circumstances around me. Remember Peter began to sink when he started to look around instead of looking up.

Are you facing big challenges, deadlines, seeming delays in some areas of your life? I just want to encourage you to call upon the name of the Lord. It is powerful and able to do exceedingly, abundantly, above all that you may be able to think or imagine (Ephesians 3:20).

Remember Sarah, it seemed to late for her but God brought her laughter in the fullness of time.
Remember Moses, he showed us that God has a secret path in the sea
Remember Joshua, those walls seemed to be insurmountable but they had to fall flat before the Lord of Hosts.
Remember Jehoshaphat, praise and worship were his weapons to defeat mighty, well trained armies.
Remember Elisha's servant, when his eyes were 'opened' he realised that those that that were for Him were more than those that were against him.

Miracles are not only for those in the bible, i believe that we are to experience them every day. The Bible says that these things were written for our examples. It is surely well. Be encouraged in the Lord and the power of His might. This week, walk in victory because the Lord is your help and He can do the impossible, only believe.

You are blessed and highly favoured.

I read Psalms 121 every day before i leave my house. I have learnt that Trusting in God is the only way to be have peace.

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

The Lord says, "I will guide you along the best personal pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you - Psalms 32:8

Blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence -Jeremiah 17:7

Trusting is not easy but it can be done. And i know he will give me strength for the day's difficulties. Tomorrow 's strength will be given tomorrow. My best word of my Almighty is " Be still and know that i am GOD" - Psalm 46:10.

This word calms me down because i know God is not a man that he should Lie.

you know this is my very first time on your blog, but i believe God led me here to complete the Word he had for me today. I started of my day in crying to God, asking him why? when? and instantly James 1:5 came into my spirit, i opened up my devotional and read Matt 6:25-34. I believe that God speaks to me (I can't say for anyone else) in threes. And reading this post of yours is the third portion of what He is speaking to me. So thank you my sister, and keep on being a vessel honour for the Lord's use. It is well with us all. Amen.

We just need to be reminded when the going gets tough and our minds are raging with what ifs and whys and whens. God is able to do it all nothing is too m uch for him we just need to ASK, BELIEVE AND RECEIVE. Thanks
