Today Reminder – 24 July 2015 (Day 13 – Forward)

A reminder for today
"Do not be afraid, for I am with you. I will gather you and your children from east and west.” (Isaiah 43:5)

Moving forward can be a scary thing at times. It feels as if you are blind folded while you try to walk on a wall. You carefully take each step feeling your way forward careful not to step of the edge, because you have no idea how high the wall is. Life is very similar to that and we often find ourselves in unfamiliar areas where we are careful to take a wrong step or even take a step.

As we step out and onto our wall, the Lord reminds us today that He is with us and we should not be afraid. He will gather us and our children (or family or friends) from the east and the west. He will carry us over that wall and He will remove our mistakes (transgressions) as far as the east is from the west (Psalm 103:12). 

This distance between the east and the west represents God’s endless love and His endless determination to see us succeed. He wants us to open our hearts and trust His guidance. So when we walk out on that wall. We will follow His voice that will guide us, but not only will He guide us by giving us direction, He will also stand beside the wall to catch our feet when we slip just to place them back on the wall so that we can safely continue.

Today the Lord reminds us that we can step forward into the unknown and He will take us through it. 

Have and awesome day dear friend of Jesus
