Lent Day 21


So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Isaiah 41:10

I don’t know about you, but I know there have been many times in my life where I can’t see past
the trial ahead. I let myself become overrun with worry, doubt, fear, you name it. It’s all too easy
to forget you are not alone when you’re in the midst of a storm.

But God. He is all too quick to remind me when I feel like I’m drowning, “I’m right here. I am with
you. I have gone before you and will see you through.” There is no trial, no mountain, no storm
that is too big for our God. He has already overcome it all, and He is faithful still to walk us
through everything we face.

Remember that even when you fear, doubt, cry, scream, are filled with anger or despair; he is
there. He upholds you. He fights for you. His promises are YES and AMEN. While maybe you
can’t see past what is right in front of you, He’s already been there, and has already conquered
it all.

Father, help us to remember we face nothing alone. That you go before us, behind us, and are
with us through it all. I thank you that you are a faithful father, and that you have overcome this
world; with You we have victory!
