Thursday morning in my daily Bible reading from 1 Chronicles 28:20, King David is sharing a prophetic word over the people of Israel and in particular his son Solomon who was set to become the new king of Israel. He tells Solomon, “Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don’t be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. He will see to it that all the work related to the Temple of the Lord is finished correctly.”
As I read the king’s word to his son and his people, I heard the Lord speaking to my heart these words as well. Be strong and courageous, as we do the work of the Lord, don’t grow discouraged and do not fear because God is with us. He will never leave us nor forsake us, He will see to it that His work in and through us is completed and that it is done right and well.
Whatever you may be going through today, know that God is for you and not against you. Stay steady and focused, continue to do what God has called you to do and to live the way God calls you to live. He will complete His work in you and through you.
