When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. Isaiah 43:2 NIV
Time and again, we hear stories of God’s unfailing love and the promises of truth He places in our hearts. When lives are affected by the circumstances of living, we need to be reminded God IS with us. When things are going well and we find the breath of calm, we need to reminded God is with us. And when we have forgotten how to let go of our fear, we must not forget God is with us.
God loves us! There will never be a day without the power of His love. As the seasons of change affect our lives, He knows how to guide us. He covers us with mercy and leads us where we begin to understand; we cannot live without Him.
God provides PEACE that passes all understanding; HOPE as we cope with what happens next and COURAGE to keep on going…As we wake to new beginnings, we must examine our lives and be willing to humble our hearts for Him. We must be ready to feel His tugging of our hearts and ready to respond.
The Bible says, The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. Psalm 145:18-19 We must be honest with ourselves as we’re held in the arms of the One who created us to love Him. God will handle our every need. He will walk us through the valleys of doubt and bless us with the power of His strength. He is God! He knows the plans He has for the future. We must TRUST in Him and never doubt His ability to know what’s best for our lives.
Dear God, thank you for helping us humble our hearts for YOU. Thank you for Your peaceful presence. We will trust You all of our days and faithfully remember who handles every single thing. We will love You with the prayers of our praise and never forget how lucky we are to be held by Your holiness every day of our lives. Thank you, Lord! Thank you. Amen
