Today’s Topic:  He Knows

Today’s Text:  Isaiah 44:2-3   This is what the LORD says—he who made you, who formed you in the womb, and who will help you: Do not be afraid, O Jacob, my servant, Jeshurun, whom I have chosen.  For I will pour water on the thirsty land, and streams on the dry ground; I will pour out my Spirit on your offspring, and my blessing on your descendants.

In the midst of our greatest joys there can be heartbreak. That is how we tend to look at life. But what if we turned that around and so that our first thought was that in the midst of our greatest heartbreaks there can be joy?

I was overwhelmed with that thought yesterday as I read from Isaiah 44 and saw these words:

This is what the Lord says – He who made you, who formed you in the womb, and who will help you…”

The God who made me will help me, so I do not need to be afraid.

When I am thirsty for relief from the anguish of my trials, God will pour water on me.

When my emotions are drying up because of the heartbreaks of life, God soften my heart again with streams of grace and mercy.

When I tend to worry about the outcome of my offspring, I hear the promise of God that He will pour out His Spirit upon them.

He knows what I need and when I need it. What an awesome God He is.

Now I must trust Him.

Pastor John

One thought on “God Knows

  1. Having just had surgery Thursday I can completly relate. My prayer life has been changing recently from begging the Father to help others with their problems to thanking Him for seeing them through whatever life is handing them. Trusting Him to already be giving them what they need and opening their eyes to see His love surrounding them. Mine too!
