The Battle Is God’s Not Yours

Pure Glory

by Hazel Straub

The battle belongs to you, my God of Peace and Lord
In your love I rest, not in the might of flashing sword
Safe from the trial of distressful battle, my fears depart
Your embrace heals, consoles, all of my wounded heart

You are my strength, comfort, help, and shield
The battle won by trust in your love, as I yield
I rest in you, enjoying the comfort of your breast
Letting all my fears and anxiety go, while I rest

My confidence is in you for victory is sure
You give me vision and provision is assured
The guarantee in you comes in tranquil trust
No need for me to run, fret or frantically rush

You make me peaceful, comforted, whole and complete
Broken places healed, I’m soothed, filled full and replete
You are my rest, restoration, refreshment and health
My prosperity comes by faith and…

You’re Never Disadvantaged

Vistas of Hope

Dear Someone,

This letter is for you. You that is deeply hurt, you that have been loved less by those you expected to love you the most. You that have been let down by your family. You that was gracefully broken at a time you had no control over your emotions. You that have been a victim of real love but in bad timing. You that have received more rejections than acceptances. You that have received more rejections because of your address than your age and weight combined, this letter is for you.

Commit And Trust In The LORD

Pure Glory

by Hazel Straub

Before you do anything, commit yourself to the Lord and trust completely in Him. Then your thinking conforms  to God’s thinking. As a result, what you do will succeed.

Before you do anything,
put your trust totally in God and not in yourself.
Then every plan you make will succeed. (Proverbs 16:3 TPT)

Peace Be Still

Pure Glory

by Hazel Straub

Ever notice how fear will immobilize you? The more you think about whatever causes you to be fearful, the less you think about the greatness, faithfulness and love of God. You feed the fear and all rational thought exits.The key to living victoriously, is taking worry, anxiety and fear captive, replacing it with thoughts of how much God loves and cares for you.

For though we live as human beings, we do not wage war according to human standards, for the weapons of our warfare are not human weapons, but are made powerful by God for tearing down strongholds. We tear down arguments and every arrogant obstacle that is raised up against the knowledge of God, and we take every thought captive to make it obey Christ. (2 Corinthians 10:3-5 NET)
