Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you. Deuteronomy 31:6

God lovingly created us to serve Him with a grateful heart. He is in charge of days. The Father of grace readies us to rise. He opens our eyes to discover His presence of PEACE. In moments to feel His power of strength, He helps us recognize our own.

Sometimes, we don’t feel strong. Worry robs us of content. We struggle with fear and forget it can dominate our lives. We have trouble focusing on what is good. But, in moments of need, God finds the way to reach us. He opens our hearts for Jesus. He shows how to examine our lives. And, He reminds us why it’s okay to admit we are weak. 

Jesus knows our hearts. He readies us to recognize what must be surrendered, before we find strength of our own. He sets the stage for good to come and teaches to be patient. And, when we have been humbled by mercy, He teaches how to trust. 

We must trust in the power of His love. God will remove what’s holding us back from finding joy. He has a plan for our days. He will guide and provide for His children. If we pray and remain faithful, He will remove our fear. He will lead where calm is found, if we surrender and humbly remember who’s in charge of our days. 

God will give us PEACE! He will arm us with everything we need to recognize the love of His faithfulness. He will change our hearts and use us for His glory. And, when He has prepared us to be good and faithful servants, doubt WILL diminish. Fear will not dwell where PEACE prevails. God will not allow it! He is good! God WILL make us stronger. 

Dear God, Thank you for Your everlasting love. Thank you for Jesus! Forgive us when we focus on our worries and forget to trust in You. Help us find strength to remember who will break the chains that bind us. And, help us never forget; You are so much bigger than our fear. You know what’s best for our lives! Amen
