Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of March 15, 2015

JoBeth36He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me. They confronted me in the day of my disaster, but the Lord was my support. He brought me out into a spacious place; He rescued me because he delighted in me. Psalm 18:17-19 (NIV)

Have you ever felt like you are faced with enemies too powerful to overcome? Sometimes we find ourselves in the midst of overpowering circumstances feeling like there is nowhere to turn and no one to help. These scriptures remind us that even when we are confronted with disasters and powerful foes, underneath our shaking knees we have the unshakable strength and support of the all powerful, almighty King of kings and Lord of lords. Because our Heavenly Father delights in you and me, He rescues us from any captivity and brings us out into the freedom of open spaces with new opportunities. Whatever we face today or tomorrow we must not forget to rejoice in the truth that the Lord delights in us and will always be our strength, our deliverer, and Savior. All glory, honor and praise to our God! Yes, amen!
