Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand. Isaiah 41:10 NLT
Sometimes, things don’t go as planned. When circumstances change and life becomes difficult, God longs for us to TRUST He will handle our days and witness the heart of His love. He is HERE in the ups, downs and in-betweens. God continues to remind us HE is in control when we need to held in peace.
God hears our prayers for mercy. When we’re tested to the limit, He arms us with everything we need to fight our battles and believe in the power of His STRENGTH. When we’re weary and weak, He pulls us closer to the heart of His love and helps us find relief.
We don’t have to handle life on our own. God will open our eyes so we will focus on Jesus and witness the power of His love. He will grow our desire to consider WHY we need Him so we will learn to cope with HOPE.
Life won’t always take us where we want to go, but there will never be a day without God’s purpose. He has a PLAN for our lives. When the timing is right, He will reveal His will as we choose to bravely hold on to His promises.
The Bible says, “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11 Oh, how we need to allow Him to guide and provide and walk on the path of truth.
In the WAIT of what will happen next, God will remind us better days are coming! We mustn't doubt His ability to carry us through every moment of our lives. He will cradle us in care and lift us where we will experience His greatness and witness the fullness of His amazing love. “When things don’t go according to plan and expectations fail us, we must reflect on the many ways GOD never fails us. “
Dear God, thank you for the plans YOU have for our days and strength which comes from surrender. Humble our hearts to remember YOU will be faithful forever. Help us focus on the power of Your love, so we will endure the challenges we face. Thank you for helping us remember we don’t have to handle life alone. Draw us closer to Jesus so we will experience how it feels to breathe in the fullness of YOU and welcome the peace which will come when we faithfully TRUST. Thank you, Lord. Amen
