A holiday message from God. via the Prophet Isaiah (41:10): “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” The perilous conflicts going on in several parts of the world are situations where only God can guide lasting solutions to problems that have a deep history. In our coming election year, the bitter power struggle between those wanting to establish an authoritarian form of government and those who want to retain our democracy causes widespread fear for our country’s future. Personally we might face health issues, relationship problems, financial uncertainty, and other worries. In order to remain strong, resilient and united, we need to depend on God’s promised help. Put a copy of His message on the bathroom mirror. Don’t become downhearted. Be a voice of reason.
