God's Arm is Strong and His Hand is Skillfull...We Must Believe.

Deuteronomy 1:29-32

"Then I said to you, `Do not be shocked, nor fear them. `The LORD your God who goes before you will Himself fight on your behalf, just as He did for you in Egypt before your eyes, and in the wilderness where you saw how the LORD your God carried you, just as a man carries his son, in all the way which you have walked until you came to this place.' "But for all this, you did not trust the LORD your God, who goes before you on your way, to seek out a place for you to encamp, in fire by night and cloud by day, to show you the way in which you should go.

Referencing Genesis 1:14, 15 God said "let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons…

Referencing Matthew 10: 26-27"Therefore do not fear them, for there is nothing concealed that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known.

27"What I tell you in the darkness, speak in the light; and what you hear whispered in your ear, proclaim upon the housetops.

Referencing 1Samuel 2:10"Those who oppose the LORD are broken into pieces. He thunders at them from the heavens. The LORD judges the ends of the earth. He gives strength to his King and lifts the head of his Messiah."

Psalms 135:7 He is the one who makes the clouds rise from the ends of the earth, who makes lightning for the thunderstorms, and who brings wind out of his storerooms.

Proverbs 11:23 The desire of righteous people ends only in good, but the hope of wicked people ends only in fury.

I praise God that He has instructed us to not worry about tomorrow but to live THIS day within the mercy and grace He provides us. I thank Him that He is faithful to give us the sign and wonder each morning that He is with us in the lights above us as well as within each of His children. I am awe of His faithfulness as each day comes to a close and I have seen His hand at work to provide, protect and increase His goodness where needed.

To Quote Isaiah:

Don't you know? Haven't you heard? The eternal God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, doesn't grow tired or become weary. His understanding is beyond reach.

To Quote Christ:

I've told you this so that my peace will be with you. In the world you'll have trouble. But cheer up! I have overcome the world."

God set all time in place He marked the days and the years. We do not know these times, but He does. So today when you are afraid do not loose heart..”cheer up, your deliverance has already taken place.” Be as Habakkuk stretch your neck out and wait eagerly for Him to show up and show out for you.  Just look at His track record of doing this.  His arm has NEVER been too short!

I pray that as you read this all your troubles are as water gone by. I pray that you will “Let what God said Be.” It is waiting for you.

With the Love of Christ,
