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…
