As Bible believing Christians, we are to have confidence in the strength
and ability of the Lord. In Him is only perfect peace. Nothing ever
worries God or catches Him by surprise because our God is omniscient. The
Bible declares that God knows the end from the beginning. There are many
people in this world who choose to worry about situations in their life
rather than giving the worry to the Lord and trusting in His wisdom to
resolve that situation. The Prophet Jeremiah declared in Jeremiah 32:17
"Ah Lord GOD! Behold, Thou hast made the heaven and the earth by Thy great
power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for Thee." Be
encouraged to trust the Lord and know that in Him is perfect peace that
surpasses all understanding. (Isaiah 46:9-10) (Psalm 56:9-13) (Phil. 4:6-7)
I hope you are blessed and encouraged by today's message.
Napoleon was the greatest general of his day and one of the greatest of all
time. He was also an astute politician with an unconquerable will to win.
His goal was to rule the world and he seemed well on his way to achieving
History records how he boasted, "Russia next, then Britain, and Napoleon
shall rule the world."
When leading his army en-route to conquer Russia, one tiny snowflake fell
on Napoleon, 'Then another, and another, and another, and they kept on
falling until Napoleon's proud army was reeling back, broken and defeated'
not by an enemy's army nor even a single shot, but by a mass of tiny snowflakes.
Napoleon's response? "God Almighty was too much for me."

The next time you are tempted to fear the enemy or worry about a situation
in your life, remember what the scripture declares in Proverbs 18:10 "The
name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe."
He is our shield and buckler and nothing by any means can harm God's elect.
Encourage yourself in the strength of the Lord and know that He is with you
even in the midst of the storm.
Be strong and show your confidence in the God who created you and know that
in the end Victory is promised to come.
Read and meditate on these scriptures:
Psalm 61:1-4 "Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer. From the end of
the earth will I cry unto Thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to
the rock that is higher than I. For Thou hast been a shelter for me, and
a strong tower from the enemy. I will abide in Thy tabernacle for ever:
I will trust in the covert of Thy wings. Selah."
Psalm 91:1-4 "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall
abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, He is my
refuge and my fortress: my God; in Him will I trust. Surely He shall
deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
He shall cover thee with His feathers, and under His wings shalt thou
trust: His truth shall be thy shield and buckler."
Psalm 34:17-19 "The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth
them out of all their troubles. The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a
broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. Many are the
afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all."
All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
