Stop Running!

20130515-224025.jpg

I don’t know about you, but when I run away from what I need to deal with, I get tired. Something tells me you do, too.

Don’t run from your problems, run to God instead. Running from your problems makes you tired. Running to Jesus brings rest. When we are rested, we are better able to fight the enemy. So, run to God, rest up, and then be ready to stand firm in the face of the enemy. Oh, and prepare for victory, cuz it’s on the way!

Blessings,

Sarah

Stand and See
By Joel & Victoria Osteen

You need not fight in this battle; station yourselves, stand and see the salvation of the Lord on your behalf, O Judah and Jerusalem.’ Do not fear or be dismayed; tomorrow go out to face them, for the Lord is with you.” (2 Chronicles 20:17 NASB)

Do you ever find yourself avoiding a difficult situation? Many people today run when things get hard. They run from their problems. They run from responsibility. They run from people they don’t like. They run from the past. They run from anything that makes them uncomfortable. Instead of facing the issue and dealing with it, they look for the path of least resistance, which isn’t the path to victory. If we are going to embrace all that God has for us, we have to learn how to face our challenges head on.

Notice that today’s verse doesn’t say, “Keep running until you see the salvation of the Lord.” It doesn’t say, “Bury your head in the sand until God delivers you.” It doesn’t say, “Worry all night and try to figure things out until a miracle takes place.” No, God wants us to stand strong, set our faces like a flint, and fight the good fight of faith. And the good news is you don’t have to do it in your own strength! God is on your side. He’s equipped you with His supernatural power to overcome every obstacle.

Today, know that God is with you. He is for you. You are equipped to overcome. Stand strong, stand in faith, knowing that you will see the salvation and deliverance of Almighty God in every area of your life!

Prayer:
Father, I humbly come to You and ask You search my heart. Show me any area in my life that I need to surrender completely to You. Help me to stand strong and see Your salvation in every area of my life! In Jesus’ name, amen.
