In the weakness of your flesh, on the rough and uneven road, and in the dark low valley and the unknown direction the Lord is leading you, it is the Lord your God that your faith relies upon.
It is His promises and His Holy Spirit that your confidence lies. It is in His life sustaining power and His dependable guiding hand that keeps you going, that keeps you from giving up or giving in.
So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day.
For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:16-18
He will do as He has promised. The Lord your God will move and perform everything He has said He would do. When the clock strikes 12, on that very second He has preordained according to His will and timing, He will not delay, He will not wait one more moment. But He will send out His word, His command, and it will all be accomplished.
For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven and do not return there but water the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth;
it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it. Isaiah 55:10-11
Though the tests are strenuous and taxing, the trials fiery and furious, and the weight and pressing that you had to endure is beyond others’ comprehension.
Yet the Lord is with you. He has never left or let you down. He has always been there to hold you and keep you, and you will one day bear witness to His amazing power to keep you until the very end by His mighty power.
You are witnesses of these things. And behold, I am sending the promise of my Father upon you. But stay in the city until you are clothed with power from on high. Luke 24:48-49
There will come a day, there will come a time that all will see and hear of the wonderful, amazing, and marvelous power of the Lord God Almighty.
On that day there will be no denying the testimony of all the grand and awesome things He has done. It was all Jesus and His power, it was all His will, and it was all the power of His Spirit that led you and brought you through each and every tumultuous and treacherous thoroughfare.
Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.
And He who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to His purpose. For those whom He foreknew He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, in order that He might be the firstborn among many brothers.
And those whom He predestined He also called, and those whom He called He also justified, and those whom He justified He also glorified. Romans 8:26-30
