“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.” Isaiah ‬ ‭41:10‬ ‭NLT‬‬

I know that this hasn’t been an easy week for a lot of people, due to illness, stressful family situations, work situations or just because of what we are hearing as we watch the news right now! But the Word of God is always, ‘Don’t be afraid!’ My reaction is always, that sounds great but how do I stop those fearful feelings? It’s a matter of focus and action. We need to be reminded that whatever the circumstance God IS with us, that when I can’t see a way, He still does. When I’m out of ideas, He isn’t! When I feel weak, I can rely on His strength. When I feel like I’m falling, He will lift me up! Let’s fix our eyes on Jesus. Let’s trust in His promise. Let’s not isolate ourselves, but let’s acknowledge the fears if we are feeling overwhelmed, sharing with someone we trust and asking for some prayer! And if we are able, let’s make every effort to gather with the family of God this Sunday. Jesus’ invitation is still, ‘Come to me…’ let’s do it ❤️🙌🏼🙏🏼
