This is for you, my friend.
You are many. You are grieving, hurting, struggling, doubting.
And you need answers:
“Is God listening?” “Does He see?” “Does He care?” “How can I know He will be there for me?”
The answers are there,
Remember this and be brave; take it to heart, you transgressors!
Remember what happened long ago, for I am God, and there is no other;
I am God, and no one is like Me.
I declare the end from the beginning, and from long ago what is not yet done,saying: My plan will take place,
and I will do all My will.
I WILL HOLD YOU:
“Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you; I will help you;
I will hold on to you with My righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
I WILL CARRY YOU:
“I will be the same until your old age, and I will bear you up when you turn gray. I have made you, and I will carry you; I will bear and save you.” Isaiah 46:4
I WILL DRY YOUR EYES:
“He will destroy death forever. The Lord God will wipe away the tears from every face and remove His people’s disgrace from the whole earth, for the Lord has spoken.” Isaiah 25:8
I WILL CALM YOUR FEARS:
I WILL SHOW YOU HOW YOU’RE BEAUTIFUL:
“The Spirit of the Lord God is on Me, because the Lord has anointed Me to bring good news to the poor.
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and freedom to the prisoners;
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor, and the day of our God’s vengeance; to comfort all who mourn, to provide for those who mourn in Zion; to give them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, festive oil instead of mourning, and splendid clothes instead of despair.
And they will be called righteous trees, planted by the Lord to glorify Him.” Isaiah 61: 1-3
I WILL WALK WITH YOU:
“Now this is what the Lord says—the One who created you, Jacob, and the One who formed you, Israel–
‘Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; you are Mine. I will be with you when you pass through the waters, and when you pass through the rivers, they will not overwhelm you.
You will not be scorched when you walk through the fire, and the flame will not burn you.'” Isaiah 43: 1-2
I WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU:
“When You did awesome works that we did not expect, You came down, and the mountains quaked at Your presence.
From ancient times no one has heard, no one has listened, no eye has seen any God except You, who acts on behalf of the one who waits for Him.” Isaiah 64: 3-4
Praying that today you will be encouraged by His Word and by His presence in your life…
