I wrote a song in 2010 (during the hardest season of my life.) My mother was going through cancer.
🎶 “If our God is for us, who can be against us? He will keep His promise, even in the darkness. He’ll wipe away your tears and say, it’s going to be ok. I know His love will never fade away, so lift your hands and say… I will cry unto the God most High, my heart is fixed, my heart is fixed on You. I’m moving closer, closer, closer to you, God. 🎶
My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed: I will sing and give praise.
It’s fitting for this year, 11 years later.
Fix your heart on Jesus. He is our HOPE.
Situations happen … sometimes really bad situations. God uses them to reveal Himself in a way that we didn’t know Him before.
If we’ve never been through the rough times, we wouldn’t know Him to be our Healer. Deliverer. Waymaker. Provider. Protector. Strength. Peacemaker.
We don’t know the value of the Light until we’ve walked in darkness.
When the Israelites were slaves to the Egyptians, God told Moses to go and tell Pharaoh to let His people go. Moses asked: “Who should I say sent me?”
God replied to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: I AM has sent me to you.”
I AM means I will be whatever you need me to be whenever you need me.
Isn’t God so amazing?
If you need a friend, He is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. If you need love, He is the Everlasting Father. If you need a miracle, He is the miracle worker. If you need strength, He is the Mighty God. If you need peace, He is the Prince of Peace. If you need guidance, He is the Counselor. If you need joy, He is Wonderful. If you need provision, He is the provider.
He is your “I AM”. He will be whatever you need Him to be when you need Him.
In the new testament, He revealed His name, Jesus! God came to earth as a baby. He was born to save us from our sin. Yes, God is ONE.
“Listen, Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is One.
You can find rest in Jesus, my friend. He is unchanging. He is faithful. He is good. Always good.
Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
Thanks for reading. I hope this brings encouragement to you today. -Tonya
