God Is The Strength Of My Heart

Man praying to God about his problems

Whom have I in heaven but you? And besides you, I desire nothing on earth. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. ~ Psalm 73:25-26

These are the words of the Psalmist David making such a pious declaration of faith in the midst of trial and temptation.

Not everyone have that level of grace to persevere. I will even go as far as saying that a great number of persons succumb to the pressure and the stormy winds that blow their way.

On the other hand, we are witnesses to the atrocities that are taking place around the world today.

We question why bad things happen to good people. The wicked seem to be prospering,  while men and women of faith, we are called to exercise patience so that faith may work and we even experience times of sorrow and grief.

It seems also that the ungodly and the wicked,  as if by some special privilege, they are exempted from the common lot of sorrows.  They appear to have the greatest share of the comforts in this life.

Notwithstanding that, we as believers  and those who serve the true and living God are called to be brave, to be bold and to be of good courage and to stand in the midst of trials and controversy.

And as Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” 

Note from editor:

The full edited version of this post was lost during a power outage and at a time when my back up systems and post recovery system also failed. I decided against re-writing the post and to publish as is. It is my hope that this short version will be of encouragement and a blessing to you.

Hebrews 11: 1 (NLT) says, “Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.”

About Yvonne I. Wilson (774 Articles)
Yvonne is a positive thinker, a catalyst for change, and a conduit through which holistic healing takes place and destiny is fulfilled. Her ministry through her blog, Empowerment Moments, came at a very low point in her life and was born out of much adversity, persecution, physical abuses, and rejection to the point of her being suicidal. She was left feeling defeated and shrunk back by fear. But through some miraculous means, God has given her pain purpose and a unique voice through which He speaks to touch the untouchable, to reach the unreachable and to empower, inspire, motivate, encourage and uplift the hurting and spiritually wounded to bring about healing and wholeness - mind, body, soul and spirit, one person at a time.

  1. This is a very nice post Yvonne!

    In its shortness it says exactly what it is supposed to say. And as you point out in your post – as well as in the fantastic quote of Martin Luther King – where someone stands shows in times of struggle and challenge 🙂

    • Thanks a lot llka for your encouragement. Things do not always go the way that we planned it, but like the needle found in the haystack, so it is you have caused me to see the glimmer of light and hope at the end of the tunnel.

      Hope and faith help us to see the victory even though fear and disappointment want us to think defeat.

      Continue to enjoy the rest of the weekend. 🙂
