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 the power of strength, He helps us recognize our own.
Sometimes, we don’t feel strong. We struggle with fear. The uninvited beast manipulates our lives and tries to steal our joy. We have trouble focusing on what is good. But, in moments to rescue, God finds the way to reach us. He opens our hearts for Jesus and helps us examine our lives. He reminds us why it’s okay to admit that we’re weak. And, He renews us!
Jesus knows our hearts. He helps us find strength of our own. He sets the stage for good to come and teaches us to be patient. And, when we have been humbled by the power of His love, He teaches us to trust.
We must trust in the power of love. God will remove what’s holding us back from finding content. 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 us where calm is found, if we surrender and humbly remember who’s in charge of our days. He will bless the heart of our faithfulness.
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 not forget YOU are so much BIGGER than our fear. Amen
