This morning when I woke up the first thing I did was reached for my bible. I was seeking comfort and assurance as I am wrestling internally over the news that my mother’s cancer has returned. I hate the unknown, and I’m trying to keep my thoughts from going into a panic mode. As a daughter of the Most High, naturally my comfort should be sought in Him and so I wanted to see what His word would be today to hold me up. Psalm 121 was what I came across, another one I need to memorize! It did bring comfort to me, as well as the verse hanging on my wall, Isaiah 41:10. These will be my strength verses to meditate on today.
Isaiah 41:10 (New King James Version)
10 Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’
A Song of Ascents.
1 I will lift up my eyes to the hills—
From whence comes my help?
2 My help comes from the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.
3 He will not allow your foot to be moved;
He who keeps you will not slumber.
4 Behold, He who keeps Israel
Shall neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The LORD is your keeper;
The LORD is your shade at your right hand.
6 The sun shall not strike you by day,
Nor the moon by night.
7 The LORD shall preserve you from all evil;
He shall preserve your soul.
8 The LORD shall preserve your going out and your coming in
From this time forth, and even forevermore.
