“Reminded Daily Of His Amazing Strength”
By Zach Wood
Psalm 46:1-3 NIV
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.
I need constant reminders in my life because there are many things I tend to forget. There are things I need reminded about at my work place. I have to make notes and be reminded by my boss and co-workers so that I don’t forget certain duties. I need to be reminded by my wife and my girls of things that I forget with my home life. They also help me to remember things I have forgotten about events coming up and things we have planned to do.
There are commercials on TV often that I see of a supplement to improve memory and I think I need it! I think most of you out there could relate to me, regardless of your age. We easily forget things. We need constant reminders. I not only need reminders of things I forget to do, but I also need reminders daily of things I don’t need to worry about. All my life, I have been guilty of often being a worry-wart. I really do not like that fact about myself, but I just have to deal with it daily and try each day to be better about it.
I often find myself not only needing reminding about things I need to do, but also needing reminded of the powerful strength of God in my life and all that He can do and still does! My precious wife has to repeatedly remind me that He is in control and I need to stop worrying about things of the future. God calls out to me daily in many ways to remind me that He is bigger than anything in the world and He can handle everything in my life. I just need to take a chill pill and let Him be in control of my life.
Friends, we have absolutely nothing to fear in life. We don’t need to worry. We so often forget that God is way bigger than anything that can scare us or worry us in life. He cannot be outdone! Nothing can be bigger than Him or overtake Him! We all need to be reminded daily that He is our refuge and strength. He is our security when we don’t feel safe. He is our Rock to lean on. He can handle everything that we cannot.
I hope and pray that today and every day we will be reminded that God is Almighty God. We can rest in Him, knowing that He is in total control. So many things are going on around us in our lives, often at the speed of light. However, He reminds us that He is in control and that we just need to trust and put our hope in Him as our refuge and strength. He is our help in ever-present trouble. He is always will be!
