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…

The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith [our ability to confidently trust in God and in His power].”Luke 17:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version
There is a reason we need to humbly request the Lord to increase our faith.
The number one reason is because as we increase our faith (which means trust) in our Beloved we get to know Him ,love Him and worship Him more and more thereby getting ever closer to Him.
The number two reason is that when our faith increases so too does our confidence in the Lord whenever satan comes a knocking. Having confidence in the Lord terrifies satan and his minions. Number three is because when others observe our faith it is a great witness to the power of Christ. This is a powerful witnessing tool.
Show me the way, Lord, let my light shine As an example of…

I always used to think doubt was a bad thing. I thought that I must not truly be a Christian if I had doubt. But what I’ve come to learn is that doubt is something that we all experience at different times in our life. I’ve also learned that my times of greatest doubt have also been my times of greatest faith. Even though I had my doubts, I would turn to God in prayer to help me through my weakness, uncertainty, failure and loneliness. I may not have been certain of the how, but I knew that He would be faithful and trustworthy, as He has shown Himself throughout Scripture.
Whenever I dwell on my doubt, and feel ashamed for feeling this way, I ask myself this simple question: Where do I turn in my time of doubt? My answer thus far has always been, God. It is…
