Food for Soul

“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

Fear. One of the enemy’s most popular weapons that he uses against us. Worry, anxiety, fear…can overwhelm us with a thick shadow of darkness, controlling our every move and decision.

Yet reality tells us that so much of what we spend our time worrying about never even happens. Living under the weight of the “what if’s” is a hard place to dwell. 

His words are “life” words, soothing to our soul, calming to our spirits, giving power to our days.  

Be assured, He is with you in whatever you face, amidst the anxious thoughts and the worries of life. He is there, strengthening, helping, and He holds you in His hands.

Replace those fearful thoughts with His words of truth. And sleep in peace tonight. He knows what concerns you, He’s got you covered.

God is with you.
