THE LORD is FAITHFUL

“Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help and rely on horses, who trust in chariots because they are many and in horsemen because they are very strong, but do not look to the Holy One of Israel or consult the LORD!” (Isa. 31:1)
This verse has been a blessing to me for a long time since I’m a person who tries to take care of things myself. The older I get, the more I understand what I cannot do by main strength and effort, but the Lord is always faithful and He never fails us. When I get stressed and overwhelmed, it is usually because I have forgotten the simple fact that God is and God can, when I’m not and I can’t. The times when He shows me my need and my lack are the times when He is ready to fill me up with all that He is. Blessings of love, mercy, and kindness during this day of thanks to the Lord for all He has given us.
