1 Chronicles 28:20
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
20 David also said to Solomon his son, “Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you until all the work for the service of the temple of the Lord is finished.
I came across this passage a couple of days ago. Here’s what I wrote in my journal:
When God gives us a task to complete, (or a trial to face, or a new season of our lives) He sees us through. No matter how hard the work is, there is HOPE when we remember God IS with us. When we have that hope, we have PEACE which helps us allow God to be in control, keeping worry and fear at bay.
What are you facing today that seems too hard to handle on your own? Invite God in and see how He sustains you with His hope and His peace.
I am praying for you!
Father, please be with my sweet sister today. She is facing the unknown…anxiety, fears, and worries threaten to mis-direct her actions and reactions. Help her to see Your way, to cling to the hope she has in You alone. Jehovah Shalom (our God of peace), please flood her with Your peace as she seeks to make decisions and choices today. Amen
