Be Encouraged In 2013!!

“GOD is not a man that He should lie, nor a son of man that He should repent; Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?”(Numbers 23:19)

To so many of us, 2013 has been a look at a new beginning, a fresh start, a change from the clouds that may have overshadowed 2012. But, there are many of us, though the calendar year has changed, the feelings of depression, grief, & separation still drown out the hype of the new year. It may have been the loss of a loved one, the impediment of an illness or injury, or the lack of fulfillment of a promise or “Word” that was received. Many of us may feel that GOD has forgotten about us, though the Bible states that He has carved our names on the palms of His hands (Isaiah 49:16). Others may feel when we needed Him the most, He has deserted us, though The Word says that He will NEVER leave us nor forsake us (Hebrews 13:5). Beloved, I know that, in the midnight hours, when there is no one there but us, and the tears are streaming down our faces, we ask the question, “What’s wrong with me? Why am I so wretched?” But, people of GOD, the Bible is very clear is stating that we are fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14). Beloved, understand that though it may seem dark right now, it might feel like we are alone, we may feel like our prayers and cries are hitting the ceiling & bouncing back down like GOD does not hear them, KNOW THIS TODAY: GOD has heard every prayer, every cry, every sigh of our heart; every silent tear that streams down in the midst of being supportive of others. Don’t believe me, the Word says that the eyes of the LORD go to and fro throughout the earth, looking to show Himself strong in the lives of those whose hearts are perfect towards Him (2 Chronicles 16:9). Do we not remember in school, during any testing, the teacher is silent? It does not mean He is not there!! The LORD surely is there at every turn, every bend, every bump, and is still loving on you as He did from the very first. Do we not know that we are the APPLE of His eye (Zechariah 2:8)? Understand that even in our roughest time, when we feel the worst, that we have blown it for the umpteenth time, He still loves us (John 3:16), I want us all to know today, this January 1st, 2013, that GOD loves you where you are, & loves you so much more NOT to leave you where you are! He will surely bring to pass those things He has shared with us in our secret times of prayer, even more so for He has many thoughts of good & blessing for us (Jeremiah 29:11). Please have faith in GOD, His Word will show itself true in our lives. BE ENCOURAGED!!
