Isaiah 41:10 (NIV) Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Do not be dismayed for I am your God. I will strengthen you. I will help you. I will uphold you with my victorious right hand.
We live in a world that is, at times, a scary place. We live in a world that is, at times, a discouraging place. We live in a world where life-changing losses can be so painful and so intense that it seems we will never recover. However, with God’s help, and with the help of encouraging family members and friends, we can recover.
During the challening days of life, we are wise to remember the words of Jesus, who reassured His disciples, saying, “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid” (Matthew 14:27 NIV). Then, with God’s comfort and His love in our hearts, we can offer encouragement to others. By helping them handle the challenges of life, we can, in turn, confront our own problems with courage, determination, and faith.
Prayer- Lord, even when I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil because You are with me. Thank You, Lord, for Your perfect love, a love that casts out fear and gives me strength and courage to meet the challenges of this world. In Jesus name, Amen.
