The Lord is your portion! He is your Rest! He is your Rock! He is your Fortress! He is your Strong Tower! Your ever Help in Time of Need! Your Abba Father! Your Confidence! Your Strength! Your Hope! Your Love! Lean on Him and not on your own understanding! Give everything over to Him and His will, then move forward in the confidence of the Lord! For He is with you! He will never leave you or forsake you! For you are His child!
Many times and in many situations the Lord places you where you do not like, where you do not understand, and sometimes when you can not even stand. You have been pressed into the floor with such a hard and heavy load of suffering. But He has a purpose and a plan for each and everyone. He does not let anything go wasted on His children, but uses them to grow, shape, mold, and make us into His image. You know that it is painful, confusing, difficult, and sorrowful, and if one more feather of difficulty is laid on your back it will break.
But great is His faithfulness and great is His steadfast love that He does not leave us there. He does not give us more than we can bear. At times we think He will, but He picks us up just at the right time. Just as a loving father picks up his child and comforts them and speaks kindness to them, lovingly soothes their tears.
Then later when you look back on that struggle, you will see how truly amazing it was and the great changes He accomplished through it all. Then you can rise and shine and praise and give God the Glory and worship your Lord and Savior! Sing for joy for all the Lord has done, tell of His great works of His wonderful mercies all the day long!
21 But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: 22 The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; 23 they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. 24 “The LORD is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.” 25 The LORD is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him. 26 It is good that one should wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD. 27 It is good for a man that he bear the yoke in his youth. 28 Let him sit alone in silence when it is laid on him;
