Be confident in my nearness….

Isaiah 40: 29, 31 He gives power to the faint, and strengthens the powerless. […] Those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.

“My beloved, how weary you are! Do you think that I do not see your weariness? Am I not with you in your weakness? Do not despair, even when I tell you more is coming. But begin today to rely totally on me. I am your strength. My children, even if all about you things are falling to ruin, even if hope seems an illusion, be confident in my nearness. Believe that I am with you—your deliverance is at hand. Just as Pharaoh remained obstinate before Moses, so you see the powers of evil standing firm in their pride. But Pharaoh did not triumph. No, the triumph is reserved for me and for those who remain steadfast in me. Believe, hope, and wait in joyful expectation, for the Triumph is near!”

O my Jesus I thank and praise you for your care of you little servants. You can see our weariness. Help us to drink from the well of your strength and we will be sustained in all things as we wait in joyful hope for the coming triumph. Jesus we trust in you! Amen.
