He Fights for You…

‘I will never leave you or forsake you’

God is at work at all times, in all places, and in every circumstance. But the key to benefiting from His work is to ‘wait on Him.’ This involves trust in whom He is, faith in what He is able to do, and patience in that He knows the perfect time. Isaiah tells us that, “For since the world began, no ear has heard and no eye has seen a God like you, who works for those who wait for him” (64:4) and “…those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint” (Isaiah 40:31).

For these reasons, we who place our faith in the redeeming work of God through Jesus Christ and His Spirit, can ‘come to Him when we are weary and burdened, and He will give us rest for our souls’ (Matt 11:28-30), and you can ‘cast all our anxiety on Him, because He cares for you’ (1Peter 5:6-8). If we ‘who wait on the Lord’ stumble, we can be assured that we will not fall, ‘for the Lord upholds us by His Hand’ (Ps 37:24; 145:14), and that no matter the ‘crucible’, ‘we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us’ (Phil 4:13), ‘… knowing that in all things God works for the good of  (And here is the Key again) those who love him, who (this is those who have entered into His salvation by faith) have been called according to his purpose’ (Romans 8:28).

God is at work… infinitely! You can profit from His work, bound up within an extraordinary relationship, if you would just ‘cast all your cares on Him’ (1 Peter 5:8) and put off your own wants and desires’ (Gal 2:20), and “Take His yoke upon you. Letting Jesus teach you, because He is humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For His yoke (which is to glorify the Name of God) is easy to bear, and the burden He gives you is light” (Matt 11:29-30).

Hope is within reach… you just have to grasp hold of His Hand which is stretched out to you. He loves you with all His heart… that heart which was wounded on the cross for you. Reach out today and find rest in His grasp…

Choose wisely…
