Face the Opposition


.
Don’t be afraid or discouraged
The LORD your God is with you wherever you go. –Joshua 1:9
Face the opposition
Trust in the Lord – The Everlasting God
Who gives strength to the weary
Face the wind
Expect, look for, hope in the Lord
And Soar! –Isaiah 40:28-31
.
Isaiah 40:28-31 Amplified Bible (AMP)
28 Do you not know? Have you not heard?
The Everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth
Does not become tired or grow weary;
There is no searching of His understanding.
29 He gives strength to the weary,
And to him who has no might He increases power.
30 Even youths grow weary and tired,
And vigorous young men stumble badly,
31 But those who wait for the Lord
[who expect, look for, and hope in Him]
Will gain new strength and renew their power;
They will lift up their wings [and rise up close to God] like eagles [rising toward the sun];
They will run and not become weary,
They will walk and not grow tired.

From NetBible Isaiah 40:28-31
* v28 affirms that the Lord is not limited temporally or spatially nor is his power and wisdom restricted in any way. He can and will deliver his people, if they respond in hopeful faith (v31a)

    When it looks impossible in the face of opposition, remain steadfast – abide and endure! Remember the Lord is not afraid of impossible odds!

    Romans 12:12Rejoice{Be joyful} in hope, endure in suffering, persist{continuing steadfastly} in prayer.

    endure[5278] = to remain i.e. abide, not recede or flee
    – to preserve: under misfortunes and trials to hold fast to
    one’s faith in Christ
    – to endure, bear bravely and calmly: ill treatments

    persist[4342] = to courageously persevere and not faint
    – to be constantly diligent/devoted to

    Unstoppable God
    Sanctus Real

    I wish I knew when this mountain in my way is gonna move
    I hope it’s ok to tell the truth
    Sometimes the doubt starts to win
    Yeah, I’d be lying if I told you I was anything but weak
    Right now my struggle is all I see
    But I’m not giving in
    My story will not end in defeat

    Cause nothing can stop an unstoppable God
    He’s not afraid of impossible odds
    This is the promise that I’m standing on
    Nothing can stop an unstoppable God
    This is the promise that I’m standing on
    Nothing can stop an unstoppable God

    will not listen to the lie that says it can’t be done
    I know my war is already won
    And I’m claiming victory
    Cause I know who’s fighting for me

    Nothing can stop an unstoppable God
    He’s not afraid of impossible odds
    This is the promise that I’m standing on
    Nothing can…
