Today Reminder – 30 December 2015

A reminder for today
So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the LORD your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you." (Deuteronomy 31:6)

South Africa is caught up in a terrible drought and everywhere you go you see newspaper billboards expressing their concerns at the days ahead. Food prices are going to go up and water is going to be scares. They talk about are current water levels in our damns and today I saw the worst one. A farmer shot himself because of this drought. 

The world around us can be caught up in a drought or it could go through a season of plenty. The fact is just as the world around us has seasons and weather problems, so does our lives. We can also go into a time of drought where we are in the midst of a massive challenge that consumes us and drives us to our very last drop of strength and often destroys us. What do we do when there is no hope? Taking your own life or giving up is not the answer or to lie down in a hopeless bundle hoping it will go away is also not going to help us. God says that we must be strong and courageous and we should not be afraid nor panic in the midst of our problems. The Lord our God goes out ahead and He will never fail us nor abandon us. This is so awesome and probably one of the most powerful promises in the Bible. God made us to be victorious through all our problems. He made us to stand and never give up; otherwise He would have never sent His only Son to die for our sins. If God loves you so much then it is clear that He will carry you through your storms. Don’t give up my friend.

Lord, thank you for reminding us that you will never fail us and that you will never abandon us. Please let us make this Word part of every day and strengthen us through your Holy Spirit so that we will not give up. In Jesus name. 

Have and awesome day dear friend of Jesus.
