Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah. Psalm 46:1-3
What a GREAT comfort we have through the word of God, we who put all our trust in Him.
We all need to learn our lessons. One can be a VICTOR AS LONG AS YOU STAND ON GOD'S WORD and act upon it. You have to believe the scriptures and make these your own. If He says I will never leave you nor forsake you, then you have to practise this and walk in that faith of trusting His word.
If I tell you to try one of my home baked cookies, and tell you how good they are... you would never know it if you don't eat one. You may even think that they are not good,because I baked them. The above can be compared with the goodness of God's word, which you should "eat" and making it your own, because the Father says that His Word is good food for our soul. This means to make His word your own and act accordingly.
Just being religious or a church goer does not mean a thing to God. He says: "Be doers of the Word." Many live in defeat because they are not practising Christianity, but are Christians by the word only.
