For I hold you by your right hand. I, the Lord your God. And I say to you, ‘Don’t be afraid. I am here to help you. Isaiah 41: 13 NLT
Sometimes we forget God is closer than we think. He opens our hearts for Jesus and reminds us who handles ALL things. He carries the burdens we share and helps us remain faithful. He teaches us HOW to TRUST.
With arms open wide, Jesus extends His love. He reaches out and longs for us to make a connection that will change our lives. He desires us to welcome what He chooses to provide and recognize WHY we need Him.
As we’re connected to the One who saves, we begin to understand the gift of His holiness. Christ helps us witness mercy and grace. When we welcome His presence of PEACE, we begin to see how He takes care of us. We feel the goodness of His love and embrace the power of His STRENGTH.
Why should we waste time worrying? The Bible says, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4: 6-7
God will open our hearts for Jesus. There’s power in the mention of His name! As we seek Him and pray, He will hear us! He will pull us from the worry of wonder and lift us where we see glimpses of good. He will remind us who is working in our lives and give us courage to endure...
God will make sure we are carried EVERY day of our lives as we humbly welcome Jesus and allow Him to bless our lives. He knows what He's doing! We must seek Him with all of our hearts, TRUST in Him, choose to remain faithful and gratefully hold on tight.
Dear God, thank you for opening our eyes to the blessing of this day. Forgive us when we try to handle life on our own. Renew our hearts and help us learn to TRUST. We will lift our hands to the One who saves and humble our hearts for Jesus. We will be reminded how much we are loved, as we discover how it feels to be held in the arms of His HOPE. Thank you, Lord. You bring PEACE to our souls while we're cradled in care. Thank you for Your faithful LOVE. Amen
