There are times when it seems difficult for us to offer praise…
when we’re experiencing problems that are affecting our days.
But if we can just envision being held in Jesus’ loving arms,
we will be more confident that He will shield us from what harms.
Those same arms were outstretched for us on Calvary’s cross
in order to pay sin’s penalty, so that our souls would not be lost.
Life is not without its challenges, but an overcomer is who you are.
Jesus overcame the world–He’s our Bright and Morning Star.
Keep walking by faith and give to Him all of your worries and cares.
Praise Him for His love and promises to answer your prayers.
The Lord is fully aware of every concern that’s on your heart.
He’s the mighty God of Israel who caused the Red Sea to part.
If it seems that “pharaoh and his army” are ready to overtake you,
praise God for His powerful love and that He will not forsake you!
P. A. Oltrogge
