About three years ago I wrote a nugget of wisdom that I like to revive from time to time. It says “The Lord has carried you this far. He’s not going to drop you. Your problems and circumstances are not too heavy for Him. He can handle all the weight the enemy is adding to your life.” I feel so much comfort when I read it. The Lord carries me every day. That is how I see Him and that is what I expect Him to do. He takes care of me and He holds me all the time. There isn’t a day when He doesn’t carry me. He makes sure that I don’t get hurt and that I don’t get damaged. Accidents happen and bad things take place but it doesn’t mean that the Lord stops carrying me. It is because He carries me that I am resilient and I refuse to give up. I can get discouraged at times. It is part of being human but the Lord doesn’t let me go down the rabbit hole of hopelessness. His hope pushes me forward and it wakes me up from the nightmare that the enemy wants me to accept as my life. Things get better. Things change. Things improve because the Lord carries me. Today I want to remind you that the Lord is carrying you right now. He will carry you tomorrow and He will continue to hold you and to assist you. You can expect His hand to be over you and to protect you. Don’t get distracted by the bad breaks. They can be very bad but they don’t stand a chance against the goodness of God. Have courage. Stay strong. The Lord will carry you and get you to the finish line.
Even if you are going through a valley of trials and tribulations today, the Lord is still carrying you. He has gotten you this far and He is not ready to let you down. He can’t. It’s not in His nature. God will give you the means to make it through the worst times. He is so powerful that nothing can get in His way and nothing is too difficult for Him. Take comfort in His love for you. You are protected and you are loved. God will make sure that you can make it to your destination. It may take a long time but it will happen. Stand strong in His might. Stay strong and hold on to the truth. The truth is that you are surrounded by the Lord and He is with you all the time. Don’t look left and right. Look at the Lord straight ahead of you. He is taking care of what’s on your left and what’s on your right. Think about how a little child is carried around by her father. She has no fear. She feels secure. She knows she is in good hands. She recognizes that she is in a safe zone in her father’s arms. You are in a safe zone in your Father’s arms. Know that you are shielded. Say it to yourself. Declare God’s protection over your life. Declare His power and His protection. You are in the best hands there is. God carries you all the time despite your awareness of His goodness. Make His goodness real in your life by talking about it and by thanking Him for carrying you.
Your problems are not too heavy for the Lord. He can hold them in His hand and crush them. Today decide to see your problems as the elements of the enemy that can’t destroy the peace in you. Refuse to back down and enjoy the power of God’s hand in your life. God is not only carrying you but He is giving you the power to carry on when things go sour. When the tribulations are so intense, He gives you the ability to keep walking and to keep going. When the sadness is too much to bear, He reminds you that He bore your sorrow on the Cross. The Lord carried you on that cross. He had you in His mind and He had you in His heart. He carried your burdens and He put an end to the misery. Don’t accept misery and sadness. Don’t give them a space in your life. You are above them thanks to the power of the Lord. God is carrying you and holding you way up high about the darts of the enemy. No matter what you are going through right now, God is still carrying you and you are going to make it. May God bless you and protect you and remember that He will always love you!
