Did you know God is for you? Often I forget this simple yet profound truth. Life becomes messy, I fail Him and yet He is still for me. I’m not always perfect in fact, I’m far from it. This week on my Facebook I posted “Troubled believer, rest easy tonight. The Lord is your Shepherd; You shall not want.” I feel like this message needs to be echoed this week. What ever you’re going through, please don’t lose hope. Cling to the Shepherd and He will guide you.
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
Psalms 23:1-6 KJV
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified. What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
Romans 8:28-31 KJV
