Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 04/12/15

This week’s scripture is from Deuteronomy:

jesus_white“…fear not, neither be discouraged.”   (Deut.1:21b)

When life becomes hard as a nail, when we are bearing a cross that is too hard for us to bear, we can wonder where the Lord is in our suffering and pain. When the money has run out and all is gone, the Lord can seem far away. When the diagnosis is not good and we need healing, but we don’t know if healing is going to come, we can wonder where the Lord is in our doubt and despair.

Yet the Lord does not forsake us, for in every circumstance no matter how hard, God is for us and not against us. He is there already. His love is already there; His strength is already there. Look to the Lord for He will look after you; trust in Him. Draw near to the Lord and let Him draw near to you. Listen to His heart, and He will give you peace.

May the Lord’s love bring you peace and strength.
