It’s hard to believe it’s been 15 years since 9/11. I don’t think any of us will forget that day. That day changed all of us and it changed our country.
Joshua 1:9 reminds us that no matter what we go through God is with us. In the midst of tragedy He is our only hope.
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.
God wants us to trust him. Trust Him in this crazy, messed up world.
Trust him when bad things happen like terrorist attacks, when children are diagnosed with cancer, when a loved one passes away.
I’m reminded of what Mom told me before she died, “I don’t always understand God but I trust Him.”
So in the midst of chaos we trust Him.
- God is trustworthy!
Sovereign Lord, you are God! Your covenant is trustworthy, and you have promised these good things to your servant. 2 Samuel 7:28
- God will never leave us!
Those who know your name trust in you, for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you. Psalm 9:10
- God’s love never fails!
But I trust in your unfailing love. I will rejoice because you have rescued me. Psalm 13:5
- Christ is Our Hope!
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13
We are on earth at this time in history for a reason and we each have a purpose. So don’t lose heart! Be strong and courageous, He is with us!
What do you need to trust God in today?
Have a blessed day!
