it's very interesting... just as I was opening my email this morning.. a thought came to me. I wonder if God is really with me.. like how would I know when he's angry with me and all that... and then I read this... and I thought well... that was a quick answer... so I thought I'd share.. maybe it can encourage one other person... maybe you
As you take a few moments right now to read this letter that God has put upon my heart to share with you today, I believe that you will find encouragement and strength for your daily walk with the Lord. We have a friend in God who sticks closer than a brother!
I sense in my spirit that you may be one of the people who is going through difficult challenges and circumstances. If you have situations that are worse than being caught between a rock and a hard place, know that God did not promise us that the road would always be easy or that the cross would never get heavy. He just promised us that we would never walk alone. Child of God, He will never leave us or forsake us.
No matter what you are going through this moment, dear one, I want to encourage your heart. Whatever we are experiencing right now is less than nothing when we evaluate it in the light of the future, which God has in store for us. He has a magnificent eternity planned for you! In fact, this verse implies that creation is actually standing on its tiptoes, yearning for the day when our glorious destiny becomes reality.
We occasionally think that God will only answer our prayers when we have been good, or that He will turn away from us when we are bad. But even on your best day, you will never be good enough to earn God's favor, and even on your worst day, you will never be out of the reach of His mercy and grace. His acceptance of us is not based on our performance, but rather on the performance of His own dear Son who redeemed us.
I challenge you to CONNECT with Jehovah Shammah, the God who is there, and with His empowering eternal purpose. When His "super" hits your "natural" there will be a combination that will result in God's supernatural power working in your life!
Remember, you will never walk alone!
