Love Notes from God: Day 3

Love Notes from God:
I Will Help You

There are times in our life when it seems like trials surround us. Temptations set in, and we start to feel the pressure of our circumstances. Tough times seem to come come right after a moment of joy or a mighty victory. When our situations begin to overwhelm us, it starts to feel like we’re in a batting cage struggling to hit the balls being fired at us. It gets exhausting. Sometimes life gets hard, but there is good news. Good news that it can and does get better. That no matter how you feel or what happens, God does exist and He deeply loves you. No matter how awful things become, no matter what happens, we can never be separated from God's love. God tells us to "fear not", because He is with us. That means stop losing sleep about that situation. Stop worrying about what the outcome will be. Don't be afraid of the future. God tells us not to be in distress, because He is our God. He will strengthen us, He will help us. God says that He will "uphold you with His righteous hand." That means simply that when the path is not clear, He is your Shepherd. He will lead you to the right path and show you the way you should go. Listen to His guidance. When God upholds you with His righteous hand, fatigue, exhaustion and weariness will lift, for you will find rest in Him knowing that He loves you and that everything is going to be OK.
