THIS. This. Do you know this to be true?
Think about whatever it is that may be on your mind today or something you’ve been struggling with– Do you think your emotions about that would be different if you handled it thinking- “Jesus, how will we walk through this together?”
You see, I am convinced that loneliness is satan’s favorite word and that isolation is his primary tactic. He knows that if he can convince us that we are going through this life alone, we will be far more inclined to believe his lies.
We will accept the burdens on our back and forget to take them to the cross.
We will evaluate based on our own strength and not that of our Father’s.
We will fear the future because we will forget whose hand we are holding.
Wherever you are, whatever you do, wherever you’ve been, and however you got there, you do not walk alone. Not a single step.
The dark is a lot less scary when you’re grasping the hand of a friend, isn’t it? And how about when that friend is the Savior of the world? Does your fear still cripple you? Probably not.
So whether you have to physically hold your Bible and let that represent His hand or whether you have to stop every hour and remind yourself of this truth, do it. You’re never alone my friend!!! How insanely awesome and comforting and thoughtful is our Jesus?
“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” -Isaiah 41:10
