Say it !!!

Proverbs 24:10 If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.

       How often have you wished you had wings so you could just fly away from all your fears and problems? Honesty would include most of us saying this very thing in our hearts. I think the reason God created us without wings is that we would do just that, fly away. 
      The Psalmist says it clearly in Psalm 55:6 And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove! for then would I fly away, and be at rest. 7 Lo, then would I wander far off, and remain in the wilderness. Selah. 8 I would hasten my escape from the windy storm and tempest. 
      Yes! We would hasten or escape from the storm in our life. However, we were created to go forward in life with an expectation of winning the battle raging over us. God has made us victors and not victims. The Lord has given us His assurance and presence. Heb.13:5 He will never leave us nor forsake us.
      The Lord helps us strengthen our resolve and faith to accomplish what He put in our hearts and minds to do. He says in Joel 3:10 Let the weak say, I am strong. Again the LORD wants us to say what our position is. In Psalm 107:2 Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy. It is true that there is a lot of negativity in the world, but we do not have to be inundated by it. 
      We have a Savior who has overcome every possible attack that can mount up against us. We are more than able to fight back, but we do it through the Holy Spirit. 2 Cor. 10:4  For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds. 
      Plus we have a promise that if we are tempted to cower and give up the battle, then the Lord says in 1 Cor. 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. 
      What if we fall to this temptation? Praise the Lord that there is grace and forgiveness for us to the asking. What will I do then? I will believe what God says about me and I will say what the Psalmist says in Psalm 91:2 I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. Just say it!!
