Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine. Isaiah 43:1b

What I need most from God is the realization of His presence with me. And, what God needs most from me is my desire to live in close relationship with Him. Scott Walker (Daily Guideposts 2020)


You and I can always hold on to hope because we worship a good and faithful Father in heaven. God is always faithful to us, but what about our faithfulness to Him? True faith means walking on God’s path at all times and not straying or being lured off by fleeting temptations and distractions.

We may not always feel that Jesus loves us or that God is good – especially when we hit hard times or major challenges – but we have to remain faithful, knowing that God is good and He has our best interests at heart even when we don’t understand what they might be. Life’s ups and downs are tests of our faith. We can’t abandon God when things turn bad or forget to pray to Him when things are going well, not if we expect God to be faithful to us at all time.

If a man born without arms or legs can be the hands and feet of Jesus, so can you. Nick Vujicic (Be the Hands and Feet – Living Out God’s Love for All His Children)
