If you are anything like me and you are going through a valley of trials and tribulations, I wanted to remind you (including myself) the Lord is still carrying you. There is a confirming promise found in Isaiah 46:4 and it reads, “God throughout your lifetime— until your hair is white with age. I made you, and I will care for you. I will carry you along and save you.”
If this promise is true; which we know it is, we haven’t made it this far to be let down. God can’t fail because it’s not in His nature to fail. God will always give us the means to make it through the worst of times. He is so powerful that nothing can get in His way and nothing is too difficult for Him. We can take comfort in His unwavering love! In fact, we are protected by the very same love that redeemed us.
The good news is that God promises that we will make it to our destinations (Phil 1:6). I know it may take a little longer than expected, but it will happen. Therefore, be strong in His might. Stay faithful and hold on to the truth. The truth is that we are surrounded by the Lord and He is with us at all times (Heb 13:8). Don’t look left and right. Look at the Lord straight ahead of you. He is taking care of what’s on our left and what’s on our right.
Think about how a little baby girl child is carried around by her father. She has no fear. She feels secure. She knows she is in good hands. She recognizes that she is in a safe zone in her father’s arms. Beloved, we are in a safe zone in our Father’s arms. We must remember that we are supernaturally shielded. We must declare God’s power and protection over our lives. We are in the best hands there is. God carries us all the time despite our awareness of His goodness.
So, no matter what you and I are going through right now, God is still effortlessly carrying us and undoubtedly, we are going to make it.
May God’s unyielding grace bless you, keep you, protect you, empower you, encourage you, inspire you, and remember that He will always love you!
