As I prayed for that sweet family this morning I was reminded that we are all called upon to trust God in ways that seem insurmountable.
Some years ago now we had four children, five and under. Our baby Jacob was a mere three months old and we found out that we were expecting our fifth dear baby! Oh my! To say that I was feeling a bit overwhelmed would be an understatement.
That morning as I read my Bible, the Lord met me and encouraged me with this verse:
"Listen, all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem and King Jehoshaphat: thus says the LORD to you, 'Do not fear or be dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours but God's.'"
2 Chron. 20:15
I've got to believe that the Lord has a sense of humor. I have thought about that verse many times since then as I have relished my "great multitude" of children.
Oh! How strong His arm is for you, in whatever challenge you are facing...
