“You have also given me the shield of Your salvation, And Your right hand upholds me; And Your gentleness makes me great.” (Psalm 18:35, NASB)
“Life is 10 percent how you take it andÂ 90 percent what you make it …
God gently deals with us. It didn’t look like gentleness at the time, but when David later reflected over all those years of persecution, he said, “I see the gentle hand of God in all of this.” God wants you to go higher and farther. Let Him make you.
The path of your walk with God is lined with both trials and blessings. When the way becomes rough and difficult, He promises sure footing to get over the obstacles.”
