When we know not how to interpret a circumstance, when our hearts begin to lose courage, when we must hold overwhelming thoughts or feelings at bay ours is to proclaim His word, for it will not return to Him void. Find a passage that speaks to your Spirit, for His word is active and living, and repeat it out loud – meditate on it, let it become the chord that binds us to our anchor – Jesus Christ. This is the fight of our lives – believing Him more than how we feel, what we see, or what we think/feel could be the possible outcome. God can do all things, beyond our imagining. Silence the noise and bask in the truth that He is our God!
“Everyone helped his neighbor, and said to his brother, ‘Be of good courage!‘ So the craftsman encouraged the goldsmith; he who smooths with the hammer inspired him who strikes the anvil, saying, ‘It is ready for the soldering’; when he fastened it with pegs, that it might not totter. But you, Israel, are My servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the descendants of Abraham My friend. You whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called from its farthest regions, and said to you, ‘You are My servant, I have chosen you and have not cast you away: fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. Behold, all those who were incensed against you shall be ashamed and disgraced; they shall be as nothing, and those who strive with you shall perish. You shall seek them and not find them – those who contended with you. Those who war against you shall be as nothing, as a nonexistent thing. For I, the Lord your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you. Fear not, you worm Jacob, You men of Israel! I will help you, says the Lord and your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel. Behold, I will make you into a new threshing sledge with sharp teeth; You shall thresh the mountains and beat them small, and make the hills like chaff. You shall winnow them, the wind shall carry them away, and the whirlwind shall scatter them; you shall rejoice in the Lord, and glory in the Holy One of Israel.'”
