Isaiah 41:10 (NLT)
Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.
You might not think this scripture goes along with my topic....but.....I love what it tells us:
"Don't be afraid, for I am with you."
Don't be afraid that you don't matter...that what you say won't count....that it won't touch some body's heart....because...if you are prayerful about what you say and do....then God is gonna be right there with you...and show you the way....and you're gonna have an impact on somebody...somewhere....somehow!!!
"Don't be discouraged"
I went to bed Sunday night a bit discouraged over a couple of situations in my personal life. In my prayers Monday morning, I asked God to send me some kind of encouragement....and just a while later....I received the most encouraging, uplifting e-mail from a dear, sweet friend. I thanked her for listening to God's prompting to write me....and I thanked God for answering my prayer!!!
How in the world can we think we don't matter....when He hears and answers our prayers....in the most unique, wonderful ways....ways that we could have never planned out ourselves!! Only God!!!
"for I am your God"!!!
What more can we even add to those precious words....
FOR I AM YOUR GOD!!!
"I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand".
I was in a situation a few days ago....where I prayed and asked God for a "sign". Even in the midst of my prayer...especially after I raised up my head and looked around me....I doubted that God would answer my prayer in the way that I asked!
But....HE DID....He answered my prayer EXACTLY the way I had asked.
So....you know what I did...first of all I thanked Him. But, then I went out of the building I was in....got in our car....and sat and cried. You know why??? Because....GOD HEARD ME!!! HE HEARD ME OF ALL PEOPLE!!! HE HEARD WHAT I ASKED....HE LISTENED TO ME....HE ANSWERED MY PRAYER.
Talk about giving me strength....and helping me....and holding me up with His victorious right hand!!
Only God....only God....only God!!!
Ain't He good???
Oh, Yes He is!!!
In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!
