Say to those with fearful hearts, “Be strong, do not fear; your God will come, He will come with vengeance; with divine retribution He will come to save you.” – (Isaiah 35:4)

 

In the midst of a space of uncertainty, I am surrounded by those who are a few steps ahead of me in this journey. I am encouraged to watch them embrace this very strength in the Lord, and see how He comes and moves on their behalf. Though it is a fight to fend off fear, our Heavenly Father holds us in His strong hands, and will help and uphold us where we think we are unable to go. Our God is just, and though we may not see justice in the immediate, we know that ultimately, His truth will reign, and all will have to give account before Him. May His help and healing uphold all who are facing fear, and may His strength encourage us to forge forward wherever He is calling us to go.

 

Oh sweet, fearful heart,Be strong and courageous

be strong, do not fear;

for the Lord will come,

His presence is clear.

Truth shall be made known,

and goodness shall reign;

allow Him to work,

call on the Lord’s Name.

The Lord, He is just,

righteous in His ways;

we need give Him room,

to order our days.

Dear Lord, lead us on,

help us to be strong;

let fear fade away,

and hope carry on.

 

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You come beside us when we are full of fear, and You encourage us to be strong in You. thank You that You are near, and that Your justice will reign, as You promise to save Your people who depend on You. Forgive us for allowing fear to keep us from pursuing You with our whole heart, and teach us to trust You with all that we are in all that we do. Lead us to love fearlessly, so that others too, may come to know the hope that is found in You alone. Let those who are looking, find a forever faith in You. Be glorified O God, as we are strong in You, trusting You to move on our behalf. Amen.
