A reminder for today
Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. (Isaiah 41:10)
My title for today is dust. Now there is something we can talk about. Hopefully your first thought was not from dust to dust. I wanted to quote a song: “And another one bites the dust” as we find ourselves in the last day of August. Tomorrow is the first day of September and it also marks the first official day for spring here in South Africa. This means that winter is finally over and we can look forward to warmer and greener weather. It also takes us into our rainy season so this dusty air that we have will finally be over. I love a rainy night.
Every person goes through different seasons in their lives. Sometimes we are in a warmer summer phase and sometimes we are in a colder winter phase, whatever the phase we are facing now God is confirming what He has been saying to us in the last two days. God reminds us here in Isaiah that we must not fear or be dismayed (discouraged), because He will be with us. He is our God and He will strengthen us and help us. He will keep us up with His right hand of righteousness. He will not let the enemy get the better of us and He will guide us through our seasons.
This verse is for you and me, my friend, because God wants us to keep fighting and keep spreading His gospel and we must keep our faith and continue to patiently trust Him with all our hearts. He knows what awaits us and He will carry us through it all.
As the dust settles and the wind calms down. We find ourselves in the midst of a war against evil. Beside us is the Lord and in us His strength and power. We are mighty warriors and we fear nothing. We stand our ground and we face our foe head-on. We are armoured with the armour of God and as walk into battle. Our blood pumping with Godly power and our lives protected with the promise of eternity. Raise your swords and fight the enemy with the mighty Word of God. You are a fearless and awesome warrior of God. Live it out.
Lord, arm us with your armour and give us strength and courage as we walk into battle today. Let us bring glory to you as we shout our praises to you. Lord, we know you are with us and we know you will never let us stand alone. Fill us with your Spirt and give us wings so that we will soar with your Word and carry it to all we meet. In Jesus name.
Have an awesome day, dear friend of Jesus.
