Trusting Devotional (Words from the Lord Series)

My daughter, I AM in control, I AM God of the mountains and God of the valleys.

Is My arm so short it cannot reach? Have I not said and shall I not perform? 

I lay things on your heart for encouragement and direction, not to create fear or tension. 

Know that El Shaddi is present and a very comforting presence. Know I AM opening and I shall close those doors behind, soon and very soon. 

You've been tested. I AM is your escape. Rest against my breast and under my wings. Selah. 

It is not Santa Claus but the God of heaven and earth at work on your behalf. Rest daughter, rest in Jesus.

[ Sin, Confession and Redemption ] Surely the arm of the LORD is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear. (NIV)

When I came, why was there no one? When I called, why was there no one to answer? Was my arm too short to ransom you? Do I lack the strength to rescue you? By a mere rebuke I dry up the sea, I turn rivers into a desert; their fish rot for lack of water and die of thirst. (NIV)

Prayer: Dear Jesus, we know from rescues over and over that your arm is not too short. We lean on those arms today and trust you to become huge in the face of our request and needs. AMEN
