“He sent from above, he took me, he drew me out of many waters. He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them which hated me: for they were too strong for me. They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but the Lord was my stay.” (Psalms 18: 16-18)
We can’t do it alone. The opposition often seems much bigger than we are, its daunting presentations and predictions mesmerizing and overwhelming. The enemy to our good lives can appear strong and vicious, and we ourselves feel weak and victimized.
But, there is always God with us. He is ready to bring us His angel inspirations from on high and His perfect and strong and changeless Principle as our stay, our sure and steady foundation. Our God is Love, and Love saves from hate, from the darkness that would bury us and the accusations that would cage us in fear and doubt. God is not weak or worried. He is established Omnipotence, believing no lies about His idea, and ready to raise us up to see what He sees.
You are never in a pitiable state. You are always in a perfect place for a rescue, for a divine conquering of evil, and a victorious overcoming not only of the trouble that would tempt you to believe, but also of the fear that would keep you from seeing your freedom at hand. You are not weak, but you are humble and ready for God. You are poised for Love’s Christ to come to you, and to show you tenderly but with firm confidence, that you are never overpowered because God will always keep you with Him—safe, sound, and at peace.
