In the weakness of your flesh, on the rough and uneven road, and in the dark low valley, God was with you. When you walked in unknown directions the Lord was the one who led you. It was all Him. God was in control the whole time.
It is in His promises and His Holy Spirit that your confidence lies. It is in His life-sustaining power that kept you going. By His sustaining hand, He upheld you in every trial and attempt by the devil to destroy you. Here you are stronger and emboldened like never before.
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 make it happen and not delay. He will not wait one more moment. But He will send out the 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 are fiery and furious and the pressing that you had to endure is beyond what others can comprehend.
Yet the Lord was and is with you. He has never let you down. He has always been there to hold you and keep you. You will one-day bear witness to His amazing power to keep you until the very end by His mighty power. Such an amazing God!
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. For many, it will be too late, but that day will come.
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. It was all the power of His Spirit that led you and brought you through each and every treacherous thoroughfare.
Likewise, the Spirit helps us in our weaknesses. 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
