God has got this!



Have you been burned lately?  Someone promised to do something for you and then it never happened?  Satan wants us to believe that we can’t trust God. Adam and Eve were the first to fall victim to this lie. God promises good to those who love him, yet we suffer abuse. We struggle day after day to pay our bills, and we can’t find work that pays well. Our families struggle with drugs and alcoholism. We are always facing one trial or another. We are afraid what will happen to us next.  We live most of our lives in fear.  Fear holds us back from trusting and believing God’s promises.  Fear makes us blind to the blessings we have, and makes it difficult to believe that there will be good things to come.
 

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’ Isaiah 41:10

God’s Old Testament people had a lot they could worry about. Their armies were being battered, their cities looted, and their cattle stolen. People were being captured and enslaved. Their nation was being nibbled away, leaving only a smaller and smaller core of what was once a mighty empire.  Isaiah had some wonderful words to tell them. They could trust and believe in a God who was not going to let them lose their true treasure. In fact, God would actually be using the hard things in their lives to help them! He said “Fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.”  He was their God and they were to understand He was in control.  What are you afraid of right now? Do you feel abandoned? Have you prayed for help? When you find yourself afraid, you need listen to the words of God, and remember that He is your God and He’s got this.

This is my Prayer: Lord forgive me for not trusting you in all times. Help me to abandon my fear and trust in You. Jesus give me the strength to come to You, the strength to endure this world and live for You.  God help me believe Your word, trust Your word, and live Your word. In Jesus name.
