HE Will Carry Us

What is it that we need most in this life? When we are going through something that we can't change...can't fix...and at times can't even seem to wrap our minds around...we need to feel the closeness of our LORD. All we have to do is remember that HE is as close as our next breath. Literally, meaning without exaggeration, we are covered by HIM. The LORDS amazing love is draped over us just like a blanket. HE made us...HE cares for us...HE loves us...HE will save us...and HE will carry us.

Isaiah 46:4b
I made you, and I will care for you.
I will carry you along and save you.
Just when we think we can't go on, the LORD reaches down and picks us up. Can't you just feel HIM cradleing you in HIS arms and holding you close to HIS chest? That's what HE does when it all seems to be falling apart...Because HE loves us. 

Since we know GOD's love, we trust GOD's love.  We totally rely on HIM for everything. 
Why? Because GOD is love! Pure love!!

1 John 4:16
 And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.
God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him.

HE is the one that gives us just what we need to get up and face each new day.  We don't have to do anything on our own. The LORD is with us through each day with all the peace, hope, joy and strength that we are going to need. We just have to trust HIM.

Psalm 29:11
The Lord gives his people strength.
The Lord blesses them with peace.

Psalm 31:24
Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart,
All you who hope in the Lord.

Proverbs 3:5
Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;

Isaiah 26:3-4
You will keep in perfect peace
    all who trust in you,
    all whose thoughts are fixed on you!
Trust in the Lord always,
    for the Lord God is the eternal Rock.
