Encouragement For Today

Two people are facing a difficult day today. A day that has been a long time coming. Now it is here.

I sent this email to them in the hopes that it could be an encouragement. I thought I would post it here. Perhaps you need some encouragement and some assurance that He is a good God and loves you, and that “His will governs all.”

Good morning,

Praying for a real sense of God’s abiding presence in you today—filling you, and leading you each step of the way.

May you go forth with humility, courage and boldness, and with the assurance that “His will governs all.”

It’s time to step into this day with confidence that you’ve done all you have been asked to do.
I know that all you have done, every step along the way, has been bathed in deep and serious prayer.
You are ready.

You are not alone today.
You have a host of warriors at your right hand and your left.
You have an army of people standing with you in prayer, both in this life and in the life-to-come.

Don’t forget that this is the Lord’s battle. It is not “up to you.”
Open your heart, wide, and trust Him to fill it and direct you.

May God’s great love overshadow all you do and say today.

Rest. Trust. Be at peace.
Rest in His providence and in His righteousness.
“He IS a good God who loves mankind.”

Remember:

“The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and He knows them that trust in Him.”
Nahum 1:7

“Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.”
Isaiah 41:10

“The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?”
Psalm 27:1

May God’s good and perfect will be done in the lives of all.

  9. Great reminder of the strength we have in Jesus – and it’s up to us to help remind others. Last year, I faced cancer and six rounds of chemotherapy. My twin brother sent me e-mails like this and it really helped me control my fear. In one e-mail, he said angels would be looking at me wondering why I was afraid since I had God behind me – thought that was an interesting perspective.
