Don’t be afraid, for I am with you.
Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you.
I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.
Today I see the oncologist. This is the easiest appointment we have had so far, yet somehow, it has become the one that has me undone.
Let all that I am wait quietly before God, for my hope is in Him.
He alone is my rock and salvation, my fortress where I will not be shaken.
This morning, EVERYTHING I have read has been about worrying. About not worrying. About keeping my focus on Jesus and being assured that He has everything under control. Radiation therapy, husband’s salvation, Hannah’s travel, neighbor issues, work issues; these are not too big for Him. He has them under control.
The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.
Then why, if I know this, if I know GOD IS IN CONTROL, am I shaky? How do you get His words and promises down in you? How do they become your normal response?
