I had let a few things discourage me and our loving Father knows our heart better than anyone else ever could. I had taken it to Him in prayer, but my spirit was still down. Today I was going into prayer and I heard Him say why are you cast down My daughter? The King of Glory is fighting for you. Oh my heart!
I quickly went to Psalm 42:11, “Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, [who is] the health of my countenance, and my God.” And then on to Psalm 43:5, “Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope in God: for I shall yet praise him, [who is] the health of my countenance, and my God.” I felt a praise begin to arise as I turned on over to Psalms 24:8-10, “8 Who [is] this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle. 9 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift [them] up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. 10 Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he [is] the King of glory. Selah.”
Oh why are we cast down when God is our countenance? Why are we disquieted within ourselves when the King of Glory is in control? Who is the King of glory?! Oh child of God The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle, the Lord of host… the Lord who fights for US is King of glory. That just encouraged and revived my spirit. It is my prayer that it lifted yours as well! No matter what this week holds, the King of Glory is is fighting for us. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
