“Do not fear, for I am with you. Do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will give you strength, and for sure I will help you. Yes, I will hold you up with My right hand that is right and good.” [Isaiah 41:10]
My heart goes out to those that have been affected by the hurricanes in both Texas and Florida, and those that experienced the earthquake last week in Mexico. Being that I am in California and watch most of the world’s disasters from my laptop or TV screen, it is hard to imagine the reality and extent of the damage done. I believe strongly that we as Christians MUST remain effective in prayer for our local communities, but also globally.
Much of our world is living in fear — fear of the future, fear of the natural disasters happening all around us, fear of politics and the decisions being made, however, as Christians, we must take a different stance. We serve a good God infinitely greater than any trial we face. We serve a Heavenly Father that loves us, and has His eye on every single detail of our lives.
I want to remind you again of Isaiah 41:10 and read it as though God himself is speaking this to you directly, “Do not fear, for I am with you. Do not be afraid, for I am YOUR God. I will give you strength and help you. Yes, I will hold you up with My right hand that is right and good.”
Please join me today in prayer for those across our globe that are going through unexplainable tragedy, but also pray for a revelation of God’s goodness in the midst of what is happening. Fear has no place in our lives. We serve a God who is fully in control!
