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 STRENGTH He provides. When lives are affected by the circumstances of living, God wants us to remember HE IS HERE. When things are going well and we breathe in calm, GOD IS WITH US. And when we can’t let go of fear, we mustn’t forget GOD IS WITH US EVERY SINGLE DAY.
HE loves us! In seasons of change, God guides and provides. He covers us with amazing grace and hears our prayers for mercy. He helps us experience the love of His presence and understand WHY we don’t have to handle life on our own.
God provides PEACE that passes understanding, HOPE as we learn to cope and COURAGE to keep on going. As we wake to new beginnings, he longs for us to examine our hearts, be aware of His nudging and choose to faithfully respond.
If we surrender worry to the One who gives us PEACE, surely, we will witness His blessings. The joy of the Lord IS our strength. If we embrace the love of a grateful heart, we will remember; no matter what the future holds, God will take care of us, HE IS HERE! His mercies are new each and every day. We can count on Him to know what’s best for our lives.
The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. Psalm 145:18-19
God, thank you for loving us through difficult days. YOU bring PEACE in Your presence. We will ALWAYS TRUST in You. No matter what the future holds, we know YOU will guard our steps and remind us to keep on going. We will give You the prayers of our praise and never forget how lucky we are to be held by Your holiness. Give us strength to remember YOU are HERE every day of our lives. Thank you for what You provide as we humble our hearts and remember there will never be a moment without You. Thank you for taking care of us and those we love. Amen
