The comfort and security of the Lord is something that we should think on
more often. Many times when a problem comes our way, we are not quick to
call upon the Lord for guidance and strength and so we lose the joy of
being at rest in Him. We need to remember what the Bible says concerning
our trust and strength in the Lord. The Bible declares in Isaiah 26:3,
"Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee: because
he trusteth in Thee." No matter what troubles come our way, when our mind
is focused on the Lord, He promises that we will be kept in perfect peace.
Keep this in mind the next time you're tempted to worry or fear.
I hope you are blessed and encouraged by today's message that shows how we
should always be quick to call upon and keep our focus on the Lord.
JESUS IS ALWAYS WITH YOU
I was blessed with my 1st son, David, 6 years ago; he is a wonderful boy.
He listens to me and obeys me, whatever I teach him he never forgets, he
holds onto it like a treasure. So I felt impressed in my heart that I need
to speak with him more about the Lord so that he can always have the fear
of the Lord and the love of the Lord in him.
When he was about three, he used to be very scared of lightning, so I told
him not to be afraid and that Jesus is in his heart, and that whenever he
was afraid all he had to do was touch his heart with his hand and say
Jesus I love you and thank you for being with me. Ever since then, whenever
David was scared I saw him touch his heart with his hand and then smile.
Last month I was going through a lot of turmoil, my husband had been laid
off from his job for 5 months, we were getting financially drained out and
I was totally confused and overwhelmed. So I put both my two boys (I have
a 6-month-old boy also) to bed and went to the living room and was waiting
on my husband who had gone to the store.
I was feeling lonely and I just started crying my eyes out and I heard the
bedroom door opening and I saw David walking towards me. I immediately
wiped my tears and smiled. He knew something was wrong so he walked up to
me and said, "Mommy are you alright? Are you afraid of something?" I said,
"Yes honey mommy is a little afraid." Immediately he took my right hand and
placed it on my heart and said, "Jesus is with you mommy, He is always with
you, don't be afraid, He will take care of you and mommy I will take care
of you too."
When I heard him, tears of joy just flooded. I hugged him and then looked
up towards Heaven and said, 'Father forgive me for I was not looking at my
blessings and joy and your security but instead I was looking at the storm,
thank you Lord for being with me'.
Jesus is always with you and He will take care of you. Next time you are
afraid, just place your hand on your heart and you will immediately know
that Jesus is there for you. Remember Isaiah 43:5, where the Lord says,
'Do not be afraid, for I am with you'.

When the storms of life are raging all around you and the enemy is trying
his best to make you want to lose your joy, be quick to keep your focus on
the Lord, and because you have, there shall not be anything that can rattle
the peace that God has instilled within you heart. (John 14:27)
Read and meditate on these scriptures:
Philippians 4:6-7 "Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and
supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your
hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."
Colossians 3:15-16 "And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the
which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. Let the word of
Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one
another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your
hearts to the Lord."
Psalm 56:9-11 "When I cry unto Thee, then shall mine enemies turn back:
this I know; for God is for me. In God will I praise His word: in the LORD
will I praise His word. In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid
what man can do unto me."
All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
