Is. 50:7 Because the Sovereign LORD helps me, I will not be dismayed. Therefore, I have set my face like a stone, determined to do his will. And I know that I will triumph.
Don’t let life throw you for a loop. The Lord is sovereign over life and if you are living in him, there is nothing that is beyond his ability to see you through. You can overcome any obstacle in your way because the Lord is your helper.
Let the Lord help you; set your face like a stone. Determine in your heart that you will do His will. Don’t let anyone or anything take away from you your focus. Set the desires of your heart on the Lord. Commit to living a life that pleases Him. Determine in your heart that you will say no to sin. Determine in your heart that you will strive to live a holy life. Seek the Lord above everything else and He will help you to do it.
You will not fail if you set your heart on doing God’s will. You will become holy in Him. You will be led by His hand. You will overcome all the obstacles Satan puts in your path, for greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world.
If you find that you don’t have the determination you need to follow through on your commitment to do His will, ask the Lord to help you. Ask Him to strengthen your resolve. Ask Him and He will do it. His help comes through His Word and in your prayer closet. There is no way around it. If you want to do God’s will for your life and please Him, you must be consistently and faithfully into His Word and in touch with Him.
So many like to live on what they think they know. However, with the Word a little knowledge does not go a long way. There is so much the Lord wants us to know and understand beyond what we know. No matter how much you study the Word of God, there is more to learn. No one ever masters it all. The Lord uses His Word in different ways to minister to us, depending on our needs at the moment. The same passage we study today may be used by the Spirit to address our needs tomorrow in a totally different way.
For those who are determined to seek the Lord out daily to do His will, they will live in victory.
