2020 was quite a year. The whole world went upside down, inside out, up, down, and through the trenches of life. It is easy to feel defeated and down. Believe me, I felt that way. Plans were changed, cancelled, postponed, and TBD. Everything I wanted did not always come to fruition. God just said, “Not Yet.”
I heard a message that put things in perspective and hit me.
God will not fail you, forsake you, nor forsake us.
WOW! That struck a nerve. Though life has beaten me, us, and our world, God allows me to keep moving. I am still alive. I still have provision even in the mist of uncertainty. I still have little victories while waiting for breakthroughs and big moments.
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”-Deuteronomy 31:6
I just want to encourage you all. God knows your pain and insecurities and He’s still got you. He is not letting you go. It may look bleak and concerning but God has not forgotten you. He is still sustaining you even in the tiniest things..things that we will never know on this Earth.
I have to remember always that God hears and sees me. All things are meant to mold and change us, whether good or bad. But God is still God. God is still Supreme. He knows all things. He sees all things. He works through all things.
For the Lord takes delight in his people; he crowns the humble with victory.-Psalm 149:4
I can attest that God has not steered me wrong, not ONCE. God has given us VICTORY. We win because He won. The battle is hard and there will be losses. But it will get better because God makes things better. I believe that for myself and you all.
God will not leave you worse than before. He is still with you. May you feel the love, comfort, and security of Him in your life today, tomorrow, and far beyond 2021.
