You are not alone. I walk with each of My followers, that they would not be lost to the ways of the world. Though you are drawn to the common, I give you strength and power, that you would not lose your way. Great are the temptations, but greater still My Spirit within you. Do not be downcast; you are not defeated. There is strength to rise again, forgiveness that your burden shall be only behind you. Do not fear the coming defeat. Each day brings battle, some easily thrown aside, others engulfing. But through it all, I am with you, that you would grow, and your strength would be shared to others who will go your way tomorrow. You shall stand the trials, for I do not leave you orphan. My strength is sufficient for you. In this world you will have trouble, but take heart, for I have overcome the world. Nothing forged against you will stand. I AM with you.
Isaiah 54:16-17 (ESV) – “Behold, I have created the smith who blows the fires of coal and produces a weapon for its purpose. I have also created the ravager to destroy; no weapon that is fashioned against you shall succeed, and you shall refute every tongue that rises against you in judgment. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord and their vindication from me, declares the Lord.”
Bottom Line: You may not be going through a trial now, but in life, there are always new challenges appearing on the horizon. Remember God’s Word for you. He is with you, and there is nothing that He does not see coming, and there is no time when He is not with you. Trials in life and in our careers build us. We need to trust God as He walks us through, knowing that no weapon forged against us will stand, and in His great wisdom, that even the tough times are good for us.
