Words For Courageous Living


I am at my wit's end. What should I do? Where should I turn? These questions are asked often by everyone in this world. One just can't get away from decisions. When things are not going as one would like them to, then the intensity of the above questions rises.

At that point the Lord speaks to us through 2 Cor. 14:11,

"Lord, there is none beside you to help."

None beside you to help. You see there are times when there is NO one to come to your rescue. Your only hope is in God.

It was sorta funny the other day when I heard someone say, "Well I guess I will just have to trust the creator of the universe." Just--the creator of the universe. (Let me say-that's funny.) And, it may be in your difficulty that has been allowed to enter your life, that you will have to renounce everyone and cast yourself on the Almighty.

Let me put it this way: PUT GOD BETWEEN YOU AND "YOUR FOE". From experience, it works.

Let's join together in prayer.

Lord, you who have created the universe and all that is contained therein, know of this one reading these words. I ask, in the name of Jesus that you summon unexpected reinforcements (at your timing) to aid this one. May they believe, really believe, that you are between them and the trial.


As someone has penned:

"When nothing whereon to lean remains,

When strongholds crumble to dust;

When nothing is sure but that God still reigns,

That is just the time to trust."
