I remember pacing the hall nervously, my stomach unsettled. It was the first time I’d been called to pray for the nations in the front of the church before God and everybody. I had no clue what to say. Would I just stand there like a trembling statue unable to speak?
Finally, I recalled the One who indwells me. Holy Spirit has never let me down. I talked to Him about it, and I could feel Him smile as He took me to:
Isaiah 50:7 (AMP)
For the Lord God helps Me,
Therefore, I have not been ashamed or humiliated.
Therefore, I have made My face like flint,
And I know that I shall not be put to shame.
This verse gave me the assurance that all would go well. I knew I could trust God! Sure enough it was true once again. As I stood microphone in hand they announced the topic. Clueless my mind was numb. Then it was time to go on, “Ok, Holy Spirit, You are on," I said. And the words came and they flowed.
Thank You Holy God! You are faithful and true! I can trust You with everything in my life!
So have you, my friends, had God experiences that renewed your strength and deepened your faith? Are there certain verses in the Bible that sustain you? If not, I highly recommend that you seek the Lord’s face and ask Holy Spirit to show you one or more verses that you can carry always in your mind. My favorite one that covers a lot of situations is:
Psalm 138:8 (AMPC)
He will perfect that which concerns me.
May your day be bright with His perfect light!
