Never Alone

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

God promises that when you feel burdened and overwhelmed by life, He is with you. When you feel like you are drowning or going through the fire, lost in the wilderness, He is with you. Jesus will not allow you to be consumed by the trials and tribulations in life. Life threatening medical diagnosis, unemployment, conflict in the family, conflict in the workplace, unkindness, being the target of gossip, backbiting and lies - God is with you.

No matter what attack satan tries to throw at you through people, places or things, He is your Protector, Provider, Healer and Savior. Life is not easy, being a Christian is not easy, nor for the faint of heart. God Never promised it would be easy, but He does promise to be with you. So I tell you this, do as Jesus says - Be anxious for nothing, Fear Not, because He has already made your enemies and satan your footstool and is moving all obstacles out of your way, so that you can fulfill the purpose and plan He has for your life.

Hold no resentments, forgive, repent and move on. Don't look back, keep doing what God has called you to do and be. He promises to fight your battles. No weapon formed against you shall prosper, no mountain can stand in your way, because God is with you and on your side.

There are many lessons in trials and tribulations. Trials increase your Faith. You grow closer to God and you come to the realization of what matters - keeping God first, Prayer, fulfilling His plan for your life, and family. Nothing is more important than these four God given gifts, desires and actions.

God will always work out for your good what the enemy meant for your harm. Jesus promises He will withhold no good thing from those who love Him. Pray without ceasing, get your eyes off of your circumstance and keep you eyes on Christ. Your Victory comes from seeking and serving God, prayer, studying the Word of God, going to church, and loving each other, as Jesus loves us.

So no matter what you encounter in life - know and remember this always - you are not alone. Jesus Christ goes with you through the valley and will always lead you to the mountaintop. His love, strength, protection, mercy and grace will keep you for the rest of your mortal and eternal life, until you hear Him say, "Well Done thy Good and Faithful Servant."

Be blessed always,
