Trust in the Lord and God Will Deliver You

Advertisements

” I will love You, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised; so shall I be saved from my enemies. In my distress I called upon the Lord, and cried out to my God; He heard my voice from His temple, and my cry came before Him, even to His ears” (Psalm 18:1-3, 6).

Trust in the Lord

The Bible says we should trust in the Lord with all our hearts, and not lean on our understanding. If we acknowledge God in all our ways, He will direct our paths (Proverbs 3:5-6). When King Saul heard that David was going to fight Goliath, he gave David his sword and his armor. Surely he thought, “God will deliver David if he had a sword and a shield. He reasoned within his mind that if David was going to have a chance against Goliath, he would need more than a sling and a stone.

But David was not a warrior, he was a shepherd. He could not walk with Saul’s armor. So David took the armor off and gave it back to the king. David told the king of the times a lion and a bear came and took a lamb from his father’s flock, How he killed them and delivered the lamb. Then David said to the king, “The Lord, who delivered me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear, He will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine.

When you trust in the Lord, God will deliver you. When you have a problem don’t look at how big your problem is. Instead of magnifying the problem, look at how big your God is. Whatever you are going through today, put your trust in the Lord and God will deliver you. Recall to mind the times that God gave you the victory over your circumstances, times when you knew without a shadow of a doubt that it was God who delivered you.

Be Confident That God Will Deliver You

When you say you trust in the Lord, do you believe God will deliver you? Or are you like Saul, depending on your wisdom and strength to deliver you? Saul was tall but Goliath was taller. Saul was a warrior but Goliath was a mighty warrior. No doubt, Saul compared his strength and the size to the size and strength of Goliath.

When David faced Goliath, he didn’t focus on his disadvantage. He knew he was no match for Goliath. After all, Goliath was a mighty warrior. All of Israel was afraid of him. But David recalled the times when God had delivered him from the seemingly impossible. He remembered how he was no match for the bear or the lion. But because he trusted in the Lord, he prevailed against them.

David did not focus on the fact that he was a mere shepherd. He focused on the Lord, who was his Shepherd. You see, David knew the Lord was his Shepherd and that He was with him even in the valley of the shadow of death. When trouble comes, do what David did: stand your ground and God will deliver you.

Power of Words

The Scripture says we have the same spirit of faith as God. It reads: “And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, ‘I believed and therefore I spoke,’ we also believe and therefore speak” (2 Corinthians 4:13). David believed God would give him the victory over Goliath and he spoke what he believed. He said to Goliath, “This day the Lord will deliver you into my hand, and I will strike you and take your head from you. And this day I will give the carcasses of the camp of the Philistines to the birds of the air and the wild beasts of the earth, that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel” (1 Samuel 17:47).

Your words have power. The Scriptures say, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue” (Proverbs 18:21). David spoke victory to himself and death to Goliath. In Psalms 91:2 the psalmist says, “I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in Him I will trust.” It is not enough to believe in God. Your faith must also speak.

By and by, your tongue will speak from the abundance of your heart. What are you saying to yourself? Are you speaking words that will cause you to be defeated, or words that will give you victory? The Scriptures say, we overcome the devil by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony (Revelation 12:11). Do not be intimidated by the size of your problem. Speak death to your problem. Put your trust in the Lord and God will deliver you.

Recovery From Emotional/Psychological Trauma

Emotional trauma is the result of stressful events that shatter your sense of security, making you feel helpless in a dangerous world; it can leave you struggling with memories and anxiety that won’t go away.
Emotional/psychological trauma could be caused by accident, injury, an unexpected violent attack, living in a neighboring known for crime, battling a life threatening illness; it could also be as a result of experiencing traumatic events that occur repeatedly like domestic violence, sexual abuse, bullying, loneliness, and addiction. It could also be caused by the sudden death of a loved one or deeply disappointing experience.

What are the symptoms of trauma?
*Anxiety and panic attacks; anger and irritability
*Fear, emotional numbing,depression and confusion
*Racing heart beats, mood swings, muscle tension and agitation
*Shame, guilt, feelings of sadness and hopelessness
*Fatigue, feeling of worthlessness, withdrawing from people.
*Ache and pains, obsessions and feeling of being overwhelmed.

What do you do to recover from emotional trauma?
1. Don’t isolate: Make an effort to maintain your relationships and avoid spending too much time alone
2. You don’t have to talk about the trauma all the time
3. Participate in social activities.
4. Join a support group for trauma survivors: connecting with them help reduce the sense of isolation; and hearing how others cope could help in your own recovery.
5. Volunteer to help others: In fact, this is a great way to challenge the sense of hopelessness that often accompanies trauma. Remind yourself of your strengths and reclaim your sense of power by helping others.
6. Make new friends if you live far away from family and friends; and avoid toxic people.
7. Self regulate your nervous system: No matter how agitated, nervous, or out of control you feel; it’s important you know that you can calm yourself.
8. Take care of your health
9. Get plenty of sleep
10. Avoid alcohol and drugs as their use can worsen your trauma symptoms, and increase feelings of depression, anxiety and isolation.
11. Eat a well balanced diet to keep your energy up and minimize mood swings.
12. Reduce stress by relaxation techniques such as meditation, deep breathing exercises and schedule time for activities that bring joy to you such as your favorite hobbies.
13. Forgive all hurts and forget the past as this can also worsen the symptoms.

Recovery from trauma takes time, and everyone heals differently. So, avoid being negative or hard on yourself.

Beyond all the tips mentioned above, is the power of God to heal your broken heart and mend your broken life in Jesus’ name.

“But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.” Isaiah 53:5
But, for you to be healed with His stripes, you need to be reconciled with Him.
Jesus is the only Mediator between God and man; and you can only be reconciled to God if you believe in Jesus; in what He accomplished on your behalf. What did He do? He, being the Son of God and the Mediator between you and God, paid the price of your iniquities(sin) by leaving His abode in Heaven, became flesh, at the appointed time, He was betrayed, crucified, died and was buried; but He rose on the third day granting victory to whoever believes in Him. He was sinless but He tasted death for you and me. He paid the ultimate price to grant us access to the Father and to His Kingdom because no one can access the Father without Him.
He says : “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life, no man cometh to the Father but by me.” John 14:6
We can’t access God’s Kingdom with good works, morals and religious activities alone; they are not enough to save your soul and reconcile you with your Maker, because it is written: “For all have sinned, and have come short of the glory of God” Romans 3:23
So, you simply need to believe in Jesus, repent of your sin, and be saved
“Whosoever call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved”
Talk to Him and He will heal you.
