Divine Note #45 - Comfort for my people from the Book of Isaiah


The message for you is to remember that God has your back no matter what is happening in your world, but you must have faith and trust him. He is a God of love and comfort. Look to him for answers to your life. This is what the Bible says you can have.

Remember that you can choose to hang on to his hand and ask him to help you. He does not want you to be afraid.
Isaiah 41:13 For I hold you by your right hand—I, the Lord your God. And I say to you, ‘Don’t be afraid. I am here to help you.'

Whenever you need comfort, talk to God instead of taking that drink, eating extra food, shopping, taking a drug or asking for advice from folks who may not know his heart. God knows you because he made you.
Isaiah 46:4 (NCV) Even when you are old, I will be the same. Even when your hair has turned gray, I will take care of you. I made you and will take care of you. I will carry you and save you.

When things feel bleak, do not get discouraged – take his hand. Ask God to help you make it through your situation.
Isaiah 41:10 Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.


Try singing praises and worshipping your God during your despair. You will feel so much better!
Isaiah 42:10 (NLT) Sing a new song to the Lord! Sing his praises from the ends of the earth!

Many of our problems occur when we keep going back and rehashing, talking about and reliving the past. God wants you to leave the past behind!
Isaiah 43:18-19 (CEV) Forget the Past The LORD said 18 Forget what happened long ago! Don't think about the past. 19 I am creating something new. There it is! Do you see it?

When you trust God, you get the strength you need to live your life.
 Isaiah 40:31 (NLT) But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.


This note was written days before the horrific earthquake in Haiti.
Isaiah 54:10 (NLT) “For the mountains may depart and the hills disappear, but even then I will remain loyal to you. My covenant of blessing will never be broken,” says the LORD who has mercy on you.

God is a God of mercy, love and kindness. He is waiting for his people to reach out to him. It is during these times that we need to remember that he is in control, but he will not control us.
Get your strength and comfort from God and then move to help those who need faith.

Blessings and Big God Hugs,
Blanca

When it hurts to care – Psalm 31:7

When it hurts to care – Psalm 31:7 Psalm 31:7 I will be glad and rejoice in your unfailing love, for you have seen my troubles, and you care about the anguish of my soul. One of God’s gifts to me is the ability to care about and pray for those who are ill. But right now, my mother is at the end of her life, and another key person in my life recently received bad health news. I also follow the Facebook journey of a courageous 12-year old girl, Jessie Rees ,  who suffered from two inoperable brain tumors. She passed away a few days ago. I am sad. But it’s interesting that in my sadness, I’ve come to appreciate how God works my faith steps. Before I decided that God’s purpose for me was greater than my own purpose, I had a hard time being close to people because it hurt that they might die or leave me. God opened my understanding (and healed me) so that I could come to terms with that and step into the gifts of compassion he planned for me. I started to feel that familiar hurt e

Moments with God: When all you can do is cry. Luke 7:36-40

July 7, 2013 Remember the story of the woman who poured oil over the feet of Jesus, wept and kissed him? Luke 7:36-40 The Voice Luke 7:36-40 The Voice translation  Once a Pharisee named Simon invited Jesus to be a guest for a meal. Picture this: Just as Jesus enters the man’s home and takes His place at the table, a woman from the city—notorious as a woman of ill repute—follows Him in. She has heard that Jesus will be at the Pharisee’s home, so she comes in and approaches Him, carrying an alabaster flask of perfumed oil. Then she begins to cry, she kneels down so her tears fall on Jesus’ feet, and she starts wiping His feet with her own hair. Then she actually kisses His feet, and she pours the perfumed oil on them. That's how I felt.  Yesterday I had a memorable “point in time.”  My ear tuned to a melody:  “ The King of Heaven’s Armies is right here by my side . “   Tears trickled down my cheeks unexpectedly. The Lord knows my real heart (and your rea

I am grateful that I can trust God. Psalm 56:9

Psalm 56:9 When I cry out to You, Then my enemies will turn back; This I know, because God is for me. I have learned that I must rely on God in all things – big and small. I must cry out to him when I’m dealing with life. I tend to want to handle things on my own, but I have a bad track record. I’m not good without God. We can rely on God when we know God. We can decide that God is a stranger and choose not to know him or we can get to know him so we can rely on him when the enemy approaches. The enemy will approach. Know God. Let God be on your side.
