Yahweh Sabaoth

Psalm 46:11 (HCSB) - :Yahweh of Hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our stronghold. Selah.

Yahweh of Hosts - the Lord of Hosts in the KJV - the One who is ready to help us in times of trouble. The word "hosts" is Sabaoth in the Hebrew and means a host is ready to serve or to fight.

This helps us to understand that God is aware of our problems, they didn't come as a surprise or catch Him unawares.  He is ready to come to our aid. The term has been translated also, the God of the fighting angels. He has myriads and myriads of angels standing at the ready to come and fight for us. However, you need to come and ask Him for this assistance. 

Today, muse over the fact that we do have power available - stop focusing upon our problems and start focusing upon God. If we focus upon the Enemy we get discouraged. If we focus on God we find strength. He promises us the victory.
