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 we're affected by circumstances of change, HE IS HERE in the midst of whatever we encounter in our lives.
When things are going well and we breathe in calm, GOD IS WITH US. When we can’t let go of fear, GOD IS WITH US. And when we need to be reminded to TRUST Him so much more, He nurtures desire to seek His presence and welcome the power of His STRENGTH.
In seasons of change, God guides and provides. He covers us with His grace and hears our prayers for mercy. He helps us experience the love of His greatness and remember we don’t have to handle life alone.
He provides PEACE that passes understanding, HOPE as we learn to cope and COURAGE to keep on going when it's hard. 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. As we embrace the love of a thankful heart, we will remember why God WILL take care of us and those we love. HE IS HERE! His mercies are new each and every morning. 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
Dear God, thank you for loving us through every moment of our days. We find PEACE in Your presence as we TRUST in Your ways and remember they are better than our own. Help us walk in FAITH and step with gratitude. Thank you for the goodness of Your LOVE. It reaches us in so many ways as You hold us in the palm of Your hands. Amen
