The Lord Is With You
“fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God, I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10 (ESV)
When we are going through difficult times it is comforting to know that someone is there with us to hold out hand and to help us. There may be times when those you need around you to support you cannot be there and the feeling of loneliness begins to creep and we do not feel like we will make it.
"Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you." Isaiah 35:4
Many of us have had people who have done some not so nice things to us. When we have enemies, we can almost expect them to do things to us which are not going to be pleasant.
"And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?" Luke 12:25 (ESV)
Often we find ourselves worrying about things that happen from day to day. We worry about if we are going to have enough money to make it or our family and friends.
Stand In The Gap
"And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none." Ezekiel 22:30
Each of us know at least one person who is having a difficult time. Often when we are helping those who are in need, we try to do all the tangible things necessary to give them a boost, but we also need to help them take their problems to The Lord in prayer.
