Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. Isaiah 41:10
It is the LORD who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed. Deuteronomy 31:8
Sometimes unexpected things happen out of nowhere. This can be rather disconcerting. I have experienced anxiety or nervousness initially.
I could panic, I suppose, but my reaction isn’t to give into anxiety and fear. Inwardly something calms my heart, (the Holy Spirit), and I pause. I breathe in deeply and exhale slowly. I remember who I am.
I am a child of the Most High God. God promises He will never leave me or forsake me. I know He is in control, no matter how high the waves get or the storms swirl. I know He is with me.
It really doesn’t matter what the trouble is! I know that when I awaken, I am expected to do the next right thing and trust Him. I turn my thoughts outward, toward helping another. I relax in the assurance that everything will work out for my good, no matter how things might appear to the contrary.
Money problems? There will be a way to get through; God will create one.
People problems? God works miracles for our good and the good of others, despite how things may appear. God will direct my life so that everything works out as He desires it to.
Someone I love is ill? Am I frightened I will be left alone? No, for I am never alone because God is always with me, strengthening me and holding me up. He will care for those who love Him and be with them just as He is with me.
