Wow! This is great news!
God speaking in the book of Isaiah says this, Isa 43:18 (ISV) “Don’t remember the former things; don’t dwell on things past.
Isa 43:19 Watch! I’m about to carry out something new! And now it’s springing up—don’t you recognize it (it’s growing)? I’m making a way in the wilderness and paths (of water) in the desert.
My friends, it doesn’t matter what you have been through up to this point. God says He will carry out new things, produce new opportunities, and bring new life into your situation.
He even says, if need be, He will bring life to the wilderness and pour out water like a flood into the desert, just so He can bless you!
Oh Hallelujah! 🙂

When everything around us is constantly shifting and changing, where can we go to find safety?
Well, take a look at this scripture setting in the Bible. It says in Psalm 40:1-2 (ISV) I waited expectantly for the LORD, and he took notice of me and heard my cry.
Psa 40:2 He plucked me out of a pit of confusion, even out of the quicksand; he placed my feet on a rock and established my steps.
My friends, there is not a better place to find security and safety then on a good solid rock. Especially, after experiencing the uncertainty of ones life, (when it flashes before our eyes) while attempting to be rescued from quicksand.
Just breathing a sigh of relief in that moment, allows us to be so thankful for having the rock close by.
The solid rock symbolizes God. He is the One unchangeable thing/person/personality in these uncertain and changing times. When we are reliant on Him and His Word. When we have a relationship with Him through His Son. Then the ending result will be the safety and security that we so desperately need and desire in today’s fluid society.
Always, always, always please remember to run to Him and not away! He is always our answer and never the problem. He is always near us, ready to be our hiding place. The psalmist put it like this in, Psalm 32:7 (ISV) You are my hiding place; you will deliver me from trouble and surround me with shouts of deliverance.
Oh praise the Lord! He is our deliver!

Gen 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
My friends, if anyone is an expert on how things were formed or created, it is the One doing the creating. In this case, it is GOD!
Psa 90:2 says…Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.
God was God before He created the things now seen. The heavens (the universe with the sun, moon, stars, planets, solar systems, and galaxies). And the earth and all that is on or in it.
This includes us, mankind! He created man/woman in His image. He created us with a free-will. That is a will to decide to do what is right or wrong. However, if we follow Him, He says, He will be with us forever. He will never leave us or forsake us.
My friends, if I was ever going to look to and follow someone, it would be the One who knows everything about me and my future. The one whose very breath, gave man life!
He is the One who existed before anything that we can see with our physical eyes. I know when we get to heaven our eyes will be amazingly shocked with the beauty of our Lord and the majesty of His home.
He existed before all things and He will still exist when its all gone. Oh praise the Lord!
Do you presentlly feel like you are too tired, weak, or deficient in your physical, mental, financial, or spiritual state, to face the present challenges in your life?
Well, I have good news for you! The Bible says in…2Cor. 12:9 (KJV) And he said unto me, MY GRACE IS SUFFICIENT for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
My friends, when we operate in our own strength, we can only go so far. However, when we operate in His strength. Then even when it seems like we have reached the end of ourselves and/or our abilities, we can still go further…because of Him.
“HIS GRACE IS SUFFICIENT” for us!
Did your notice this is present tense?
His grace “is“!
My friends, it “is” presently working in our life! It “is” presently sufficient! So even in the natural when we reach our point of weakness. Or the end of our rope, (so to speak) then especially in that moment, “HIS GRACE IS” available for us and we receive our strength in Him.
Oh Praise the Living King, Jesus Christ the Righteous Son of God, our Lord!
Thank You Jesus for being our GRACE! Thank You that You are more than enough for every situation in our life! You are our sufficiency, amen and amen!

Psalm 91:5-9 (KJV) Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
Psa 91:6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
Psa 91:7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
Psa 91:8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
Psa 91:9 Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;
My friends, God does not want us to walk in fear, even in fearful times! Verse 9 says, if we make the Lord, our refuge (The Most High Lord, Jesus Christ). The One whose name has been made higher than ANY OTHER name. **Php 2:9-11 (GNB) For this reason God raised him to the highest place above and gave him the name that is greater than any other name.
Php 2:10 And so, in honor of the name of Jesus all beings in heaven, on earth, and in the world below will fall on their knees,
Php 2:11 and all will openly proclaim that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. **
My friends, if we run to, dwell in, and remember…His presence is surrounding us. Then no matter what comes our direction, we know He is right THERE with us. Protecting us! Keeping us safe in Him!
So even if, the terror strikes at night or the arrows (missiles) fly in the daytime, we can run to and trust in Him!
Oh Hallelujah! 🙂
