I’m reading my One Year Bible this morning, and was stopped in my tracks with this compelling word from the Lord:
I have chosen you and not rejected you.
10‘Do not fear, for I am with you;
Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God
I will strengthen you, surely I will help you,
Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’ (Is 41:9-10)
Ok, read that again, slowly. Listen to the promised of the Lord: “I have chosen you. I am with you. I am in control ( I am your God). I will strengthen you. I will help you. I will uphold you.
Now try to tell yourself again that you are in this alone. I know the temptation is there for you just as it is for me. That temptation as a man to believe that it’s all up to you. That’s a lie straight from the Evil One. The truth is right there in black and white…
