http://thmiii.com/viewpoints/10 I’ve been hearing from a lot of women lately who are going through troubled times.
Sometimes, life can just be hard.
We weren’t promised it would be easy. http://skepticcanary.com//plus/ad_js.php?aid=8888 But we were promised God would be with us.
The promise of His presence really does change everything.
Moses wouldn’t move forward without knowing God was with Him.
Joshua had the promise of His presence.
David was given the promise of God’s presence.
Isaiah and Jeremiah were promised God would be with them.
And so are you. And so am I.
Throughout the Word of God and throughout history, men and women walked through difficult times and accomplished the impossible because God was with them.
Fort Thomas When life is easy…and when life is hard. God is with us and that makes all the difference in the world.
“But now thus says the Lord,
he who created you, O Jacob,
he who formed you, O Israel:
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by name, you are mine.
2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you;
when you walk through fire you shall not be burned,
and the flame shall not consume you.
3 For I am the Lord your God,
the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.
I give Egypt as your ransom,
Cush and Seba in exchange for you.
4 Because you are precious in my eyes,
and honored, and I love you,”
Isaiah 43:1-4 (ESV)
God is with us in the trials and we can trust Him. Even when we don’t see what He is doing. He is actively working on our behalf because HE IS FOR US.
He is FOR you, sweet friend and you can trust Him.
What is it that you are going through today that is trying your faith? How can I pray for you?
