“The Lord replied, 'My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.’”
After a tumultuous season of spiritual warfare hitting the church and personal life, I felt like a battle-worn warrior. Though a woman’s heart is tender and sensitive to the needs around her, it’s also a two-edged sword where her emotions are easily battered.
“Lord, please help me through these times of weaknesses. Guard my emotions so that I will not be overwhelmed and fall prey to the enemy’s attack!” I prayed.
Then in my quiet time with the Lord, I felt God gave me the word from Exodus 33:14. Trials in life are unavoidable but God promises two things: His presence and His peace. When Moses was going through a hard time leading the Israelites, these were the two promises given to him and it was enough.
We may not be able to escape the trials of life, but God promised to be with us through it all. His presence will strengthen and guide us so we will not stumble and fall. He also promised His supernatural peace to go with us, so we do not worry but experience His Shalom that will anchor us. - By SC
