God wants His people to prosper in all that they set their hearts on doing.
His Word says that when other people fail, His children will succeed. When other people are buried in defeat, His children will lead lives of victory.
The Lord is your refuge and strength whenever trouble of any variety knocks at your door. As a child of God, safely covered by the blood of Jesus Christ, you have no need to fear—even when things around you seem to be falling apart.
Even if the earth is removed from its foundation and the mountains slide into the sea, you should not be moved by fear— God will bring victory and deliverance in every single situation.
That’s the inheritance of the servants of God Almighty. The promise of Psalm 46:1-3 is the foundation of every blessing in your life:
“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, even though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; though its waters roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with swelling.”
The life of a child of God is a life of faith and trust, putting Him above everything and everyone in your life, just as Jesus identified as the most important commandment in Scripture:
“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength” (Mark 12:30).
That’s the prerequisite to receive any of God’s wonderful blessings, promises, and protection. Knowing that, now might be a good time to examine your heart to make sure it’s focused in the right direction so you can experience the victories He has in mind for you.
