Quick post: I just would like to share a text from Rick Warren. By the way, I replaced all the "you"s with "we" because I believe this is for all of us. :)
Be Undefeatable: Lean on the Lord
"No one will be able to defeat you all your life. Just as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you or forget you." (Joshua 1:5)
We need to learn to lean on the Lord. It doesn't mean just believe in Him - it means depend totally, completely, and exclusively on God. When we lean on something, we expect it to hold us up. We can lean on the Lord.
The key verse was taken from the book of Joshua. And if we study his life, we'll find that as long as he leaned on the Lord, he was undefeatable.
When we think we can't do something on our own power, that's okay. Lean on God, and He will give us His power to do what He has called us to do. We lose our fear when God is near, and He's promised to always be with us.
Some of us are leaning on other people. They may be Christians, they may be godly people, but they will let us down because they're human, because nobody's perfect. There is no guarantee that the person we lean on the most will even be around for any length of time. We need someone who cannot be taken away from us. We need to learn to lean on the Lord.
Proverbs 3:5-7 says, "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." We can trust God with our future. Learn to lean on Him.
I highlighted the part which struck me the most. When we know that God is on our side, we will never be afraid of anything because we know that He's more than too strong, He's all-powerful. And as He said, He has already overcome the world. :)
I was looking for a photo that would best suit this post and I saw this:
Not that we will never act at all, but in everything we do, we always seek God's help. And whenever we get good results, we don't own the credits, but give back all the glory to Him. :)
Let me end with this beautiful quote from Tita Chit:
No matter how softly you whisper a prayer, God surely listens. When you trust in Him, miracles happen.
I have God. I am undefeatable! ♥
