《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?” (Heb 13:6)
Meditation one: Are you walking in your life’s deepest valley of shadow? Are you facing a sinister environment, a crushed mess, a besieged situation, or a grave ill? If you are a child of God, and He is your God Abba Father, why not cast all the difficulties, burdens, and struggles to God now? God promised and said: “Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you.” (Isa 49:15) If God is for us, who can be against us? (Rom 8:31)
Meditation two: Why can Christians boldly say “I will not be afraid!” under any circumstances? It is not that we have a way, but because God is a very present help in trouble. He is our great shepherd. He has promised time after time: “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.” (Isa 41: 10)
Prayer: God heavenly Father, thank You for your promise of being with me. Please strengthen my faith, let me not only know the promise that You are mindful of me, but more importantly, make me completely trust Your promise. I want to seize all of Your promises, because the promises of the Lord will never change, nor will it perish, and will be done after all. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen!
