The Nearness of God

In my greatest moment of weakness and need, the presence of God is all the more evident and changes everything. His peace is like none other. There is a sense of calm and order that comes over me even while my circumstances remain unchanged - because I am changed in that moment. His spirit emboldens me to keep going, keep believing, keep trusting. My heart is strengthened, mind renewed and perspective properly fixed on Him. 

This past week has been physically challenging for me. When I am physically struggling in my health, I am more vulnerable and quite frankly, weaker. My defenses are down. And it affects me emotionally. Sometimes it just feels like a "perfect" storm - you feel overwhelmed and on the brink of breaking. BUT GOD. Truly, when I am weak, He is strong. His Living WORD literally carried me through this week. Every day, God's Word was timely and perfect. 

“This is why I tell you: Don’t worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Isn’t life more than food and the body more than clothing? Matthew 6:25

Cast your burden on the Lordand He will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken. Psalm 55:22

For I, Yahweh your God, hold your right hand and say to you: Do not fear, I will help you. Isaiah 41:13

When I did not have the strength, God's word was my strength. He breathed life into me and it changed everything. Friend, turn to God's word. It is the source of our life, the basis for which we build a strong foundation. When we cannot find the words to speak or pray, God's Word is more than enough. The nearness of God dispensed through His Living Word. Calling these bones back to life.
