Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 03/17/13

This week’s scripture is from Isaiah:

Jesus Christ -- Heinrich Hofmann“God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid; ‘For Yah, the Lord, is my strength and song; He also has become my salvation.’”   (Isaiah 12:2)

The Lord said that in this life there would be troubles, there would be tribulation. Such is life, even for those who love Him and are called according to His name. Our Lord was called a man of sorrows, for He came into a fallen world, and He wept over it and those who live in it. Yet the Lord laid down His life only to take it up again, to rise up triumphant with victory in His hand. He said to come to Him for His yoke is easy and His burden is light. He is our strength and our shield, our Savior in whom we trust. Fear not.  This life cannot defeat us if He is our Lord and our salvation, for our life is now in Him in whom we trust.

May the Lord bless you to trust in Him in every situation, in every circumstance.
