Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 04/21/13

This week’s scripture is from Joshua:

Jesus Christ 4“I will not leave you nor forsake you.”  (Joshua 1:5b)

The Lord does not abandon us. When we suffer sickness or loss, when failure or sin trouble our lives, God does not forsake us. When Satan comes hard against us like a hammer blow, when his assault is relentless, dragging on and on, when the days become weeks and the weeks become months, when our strength is spent and our faith is severely tested, the Lord is still there. He never leaves or forsakes us; even if He is silent, He is still there. In the face of hardships and troubles we need to stand our ground, for it is not our strength that brings the victory. The Lord is our strength; press into the Lord; pray and praise the Lord. Let us proclaim that our strength is found in our Lord, for He is ever with us, and ever faithful.

May the Lord bless you with the assurance that He is ever with you and never leaves you.
