“Fear not; for I AM with thee; be not dismayed; for I AM thy God; I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of MY righteousness.” (Isaiah 41:10 KJV)
I love the many promises of God. Today, you may be going through a difficult time. You may be facing a situation that you thought would never come into your life. You may even feel that all hope is nearly gone. You could be facing a major sickness or illness. Your financial status could be declining faster than you can manage to hold onto. A loved one or close friend may have turned their back on you without sufficient cause. You may be facing the unexpected loss of a job; or even worse the loss of a precious loved one. These are devastating times in our lives when “man’s words” only offer temporary comfort but they don’t “fix” the hurt or dismay…Even the most sincerest of words seem to fall on barren soil…
But, GOD’s WORDS are NOT man’s words. God’s Words are True and Faithful. His Words have stood the test of time and will continue to do so until the end of time…You needn’t fear for what lies ahead…For, GOD himself will show you the way…It might take time; but time well worth the wait…For, God has a plan for you and for your life that only HE can orchestrate and cause to come to pass.
God sees your tears. God knows your pain. God hears your pleas. And, HE alone can open doors that no man can shut and HE can close doors that no man can open…He can strengthen you. He can help you. And, HE will uphold you with His own Hand of righteousness. You may not know which way to go or which way to turn, but GOD DOES.
Today put your complete and total trust in GOD through His son, Jesus Christ. Fall on your knees in prayer asking HIM to show you the way and to give you the HOPE you need to face each and every day until this season of your life is passed. No, you will not stop missing a loved one who is gone, but the pain will eventually become more bearable. No, you may not get the old job back. But, God may have a better job in store for you…No, the door of opportunity you missed may be gone, but GOD is the Great Creator (ELOHIM) who can “create” new out of HIS own limitless domain.
“Fear Not…”Trust in God today and every day. For in doing so you will find strength to face each day’s dawning knowing that GOD is on your side…And, if God be for us, who can be against us?
Remember, God Loves YOU!
