Don’t fear, because I am with you;
don’t be afraid, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
I will surely help you;
I will hold you with my righteous strong hand.
Isaiah 41, 10
God keeps me. And yet He sometimes smashes things that I’d like to keep for myself. Since I had set my security on a person or on my career. And God wanted that I am dependent on Him alone. So God slowly took me everything on which I trusted, so that I trust HIM. And now I can truly say: He helps, He holds me with His righteous hand. It is not nice at all, if God "cuts" us. But the result is good and wonderful. We want to allow it , when God is working in our lives and takes us things, without which we supposedly can not live. HE is there, even in these courts, and He says: " Do not be afraid my child! For I am there, I’ll help you, I will make you strong, I keep you in my helpful hand!"
Thank you, Father, that You hold me. Even if everything wavers, You’re there. At the end You are the one who wins. Thank You that I can trust You, even in a dark night. You can already see the morning! You are the God who takes care of His children.
