Protection for Overcomers

Yes, I’m still in the Overcomers series.  I have been taking some time in writing another article and finding myself remembering that Overcoming is hard work.  There are times that I feel like what Scripture says about King David.

1 Samuel 30:6 Moreover David was greatly distressed because the people spoke of stoning him, for all the people were embittered, each one because of his sons and his daughters. But David strengthened himself in the LORD his God.

Oh, no one’s thinking of stoning me…(at least not that I know of!!!) but sometimes Overcomers need to strengthen ourselves in the LORD.  There may be others trying to hold up our hands and keep us encouraged and the support from brothers and sisters is wonderful!  But at other times, it’s a do-it-yourself-in-God project.  We need His protection and His strength.  So we go to Scripture.  We need to listen to uplifting hymns of praise and vindication.  We read historic prayers and pray our own new ones with what little strength we have.

Are you weary and burdened?  Do your mind and body feel all worn out?  Strengthen yourself in the LORD and know that there’s spiritual protection for Overcomers.

Protect You
