This Week's WORD

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or discouraged because of the king of Assyria and the vast army with him, for there is a greater power with us than with him. With him is only the arm of flesh, but with us is the LORD our God to help us and to fight our battles.
2 Chronicles 32:7-8

Are you facing a king and his vast army today? Fear not, my friend. For the King is on your side, and His power is greater!

May you rest in the assurance that the King will fight your battles.
See you back here Monday.

I love this verse! It's very similar to another favorite of mine in Deuteronomy: Be strong and of good courage. Do not be afraid. For the Lord goes with you. He will not fail you or forsake you!

Have a great weekend!

Did you know the phrase that is said by Jesus in the Bible more than any other is "Do not be afraid" or some form of it ("fear not!"

I think he really doesn't want us to fear, but to trust in him. Amen.

Karen, I have been in such a bad mood ALL day. I've been directing at everyone around me, and I'm ashamed of myself. I need to get on my knees and pray about this right now, cause it looks like it could ruin my weekend. I was sitting here wondering what you would tell me. Thank you for the message. I really needed to read this.

I just love how God hedges us from behind and goes in front. He is our rear guard.

Love this great reminder today that God is able!

I really like that you do this on Fridays!

it is one thing to know this and yet a whole other thing to BELIEVE this. i have worked so hard this past year to BELIEVE it as we go through financially stretching times. Money is such an insignificant thing to the Lord. He gives and takes away. I just need to rest in him and my life will be what he wants it to be. but that is so easy to SAY and so HARD to live!

Some days it is just so hard for me to put on my Armor.....I am so glad I can find such peace in knowing God is able to fight my battles for me.

Needed this. Know it, been standing on it! Even have some wonderful praise reports in a different area...but I grow weary...so it IS GOOD to have others around me of strong faith to help cheer me on during this time! Thank you, Karen!
