"Do not despair!
The Mighty Hand of God will rescue you!
I know Yahweh gives me all that I ask for and brings victory to his anointed King. My deliverance cry will be heard in his holy heaven. By his mighty hand miracles will manifest through his saving strength."
Psalms 20:6 TPT
Is there something God has promised you, but you have not yet seen it come to fruition? Have you felt close to giving up on his promise? Or doubt what you heard?
The timing of God is such a mystery to me. I’ve seen him work in the lives of others and in myself over and over again, but usually his timing of that work is very different than what I imagined.
In this Psalm, David is sure that God gives ALL that is asked for. He knows that God brings victory, listens, and saves. I think he also knows that sometimes we have to wait for those things to happen. We must believe that the hand of God is mighty, the mightiest of all, and he will absolutely use it in our behalf!
I feel like our country needs the work of God’s mighty hand. When I see everything that is happening all over our nation, I hear God say, “Do not despair!” When I pray for his mighty hand to manifest across our nation, I hear him tenderly reassure me that his work and his love for us is abundant and he will expose all truth through his mighty hand. He will!
I lean on this promise often. Not only for myself, but for my children and grandchildren. When I see the rampant lies that flourish in our country, I sometimes fear for them. This is when I have to continually go back to the promise of God and believe that he absolutely will give victory to his children.
The issue of identity is especially concerning and controversial. Young children are struggling with their gender and making life changing decisions. They are grasping for guidance and truth. The enemy continues to feed us lies about who God is and who we are.
God bring your mighty hand upon the hearts of your people and lead us to your heart!
I am saddened by the impact on our children. The heartbreak of the issues our children face today is astounding. Yet, God tells us to not be in a place of despair, but to believe that He will bring victory. Victory over identity. Victory over loss. Victory over every lie. Victory over child trafficking. Victory over immigration. Victory in our schools. Victory in places we do not even recognize. Victory in our leadership. Victory in relationships. Victory for our constitution. Victory over fear. Victory!
Courage is ours, and as I struggle with some of the places our country stands, and the issues our children face, I am praying for courage to speak out, speak up, and speak in love. Courage to believe that whatever happens, the mighty hand of God will intervene and give me all that I need; what are you praying for?
