Encouraging Words with Pastor Bruce & Suzi Elman
These are by far challenging and uncertain times; the Word of GOD should be your anchor to get through. And in our verse of the day, we find Isaiah writing about our source of hope, which is MESSIAH YESHUA.
Here GOD promises us strength, help and protection. Moreover, He gives two commands: “Do not fear, and do not be anxiously looking around you.” One of Satan’s successful traps is distraction! He knows that fear can choke faith! He works hard to make unsettling circumstances our focus! Once our attention is diverted from GOD, then prayer and worship are in short supply, and then anxiety and doubt have room for growth!
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.
The emotions of anxiety and doubt don’t belong in a believer’s life! Let’s use the spiritual anchors found in GOD’S Word to keep us steady in our faith.
With lots of prayers & love, Shalom!
