Stand With Me



A little mountain has appeared on our horizon. I'm in the midst of preparing for meeting this mountain. Most of all, standing on His WORD, trusting my Jesus, allowing His peace to invade and overtake me, leaning against His chest to hear His heartbeat to stop any doubts surfacing in me.

Honestly, I am completely inadequate to deal with this situation. I am not an expert. Praising that His power rests on me and is sufficient for me in the midst of my weakness.

In all honesty and humility, I admit I cannot climb this mountain in my own strength. Only in His. Will you stand with me this week? Will you agree with me? Will you speak His WORD over this situation in our family?

As God leads, would you speak the power of His WORD over me as I prepare this week. Will you join with me as I declare that His promises are true and never fail despite what the world may say?

I'm standing on these. I would be honored to have you join me; read it out loud with me today, proclaim them with me over my situation, and if you have a mountain in your life, proclaim them over yours. WOOHOO! Getting excited just typing them up!

You, Lord will bless me and all the righteous; as with a shield You will surround me with goodwill and favor - Psalm 5:12

You are the glory of my strength, and by Your favor my horn is exalted and I walk with uplifted face. - Psalm 89:17

I shall find favor, good understanding, and high esteem in the sight (or judgement) of God and man. - Proverbs 3:4

God's grace (His favor and loving kindness and mercy) is enough for me; for God's strength and power are made perfect and show themselves most effective in my weakness. Therefore, I will all the more gladly glory in my weaknesses and infirmities that the strength and power of Christ may rest upon me! - 2 Corinthians 12:9

I fearlessly and confidently draw near to the throne of grace, that I may receive mercy and find grace to help in good time for every need (appropriate help and well timed help, coming just when I need it). - Hebrews 4:16



Looking forward to posting after my 'meeting the mountain' to share with all of you how Jesus did it! (Then I can share more specifics) Until then, let's do a little praising together ... because we have the favor of God.

I will stand with you Sara. I know He is able, and that it is in our weakness that He shows Himself strong.
Praying His peace will fill your heart and that His grace will see you through.

I can't wait to hear about the victory over the mountain! Faith as small as a mustard seed, girl. Even that kind of faith can move what stands in front of you.

I only wear jeans occasionally and I rarely wear t-shirts, but I know you'll receive the prayers of this sister anyway. :)

Praying for you and will watch see to see what HE does! Psalm 5:12 is one of my favorites of all time and I pray this over me and my family every single day. Will be praying for you too!

Praying, watching, waiting,
Sharon

Sarah,

Whatever the mountain may be in your life at this time, it's so much easier climbing it with God who enables us with His strength to go forth and reach the top.

Praying for whatever you are enduring that God will provide abundant strength and grace for you to handle it.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

With God by our side, no mountain is too high, no valley too deep nor a desert too dry. Trust in Him, He'll see you through!

Praising Him, Joan

From 2 Chronicles: The battle is not yours but the Lord's. Take up your positions and stand firm, and see the deliverance the Lord will give you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow and the Lord will be with you.

Jehosaphat and his people bowed down in worship before the Lord.

He appointed me to sing to the Lord and to praise him for the splendor of his holiness......

From 2 Chronicles 20--

God be will you,
Love,
Dianne
