Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 11/06/16

This week’s scripture is from Deuteronomy: Jesus risen

“The Lord is the One who will go before you. He will be with you; He will not leave you or forsake you. Do not be afraid or discouraged.”   (Deut. 13:8 HCSB)

Sometimes it is difficult to see or to know the way forward. It can be hard at times to see the path ahead when we can see only obstacles and roadblocks or are hindered by darkness. Sometimes it seems as if there just is no way to move on, or we become fearful of making the wrong choice on which way to go. It can bring us to a standstill or even force us backwards.

But when we put the Lord first in our life, when we put every situation in His hands, we need not be concerned, for the Lord always knows which direction we should go. If we will ask His guidance and follow Him, He will never lead us astray nor get us lost. Let us remember that we are His followers, and let us follow Him, wherever He leads us, for He loves us, and He has promised that He will never leave us, for we belong to Him; we are His and He is our loving God.

May the Lord bless you with His love and assurance.
