“4Say to him, ‘Be careful, keep calm and don’t be afraid. Do not lose heart because of these two smoldering stubs of firewood—because of the fierce anger of Rezin and Aram and of the son of Remaliah.”-Isaiah 7:4 (NIV)
This morning as you start your day, feel free to take a deep, slow breath. When you see the smoke and the fire approaching in your life—or if you are in the fire—feel a sense of calm. Latch on to the knowledge that God has instilled in you: that you are His son or daughter, and that He is most definitely looking out for you! No matter what your situation is, or how suffocating the smoke from that fire may be to you, He is providing you air. He’s giving you room to breathe.
It could be men plotting against you, looking out for themselves and ill intentions. It could be concern for your family or close friends, and their situations that you feel responsible for. Maybe your job isn’t working out as smoothly as you’d hoped, or you’re jobless and searching for the next opportunity. Either way, stay calm—you have the Heavenly Father fighting and working in your corner. And not only is He working for your best interests; He loves you and knows your pains!
Do not be afraid. Do not let intimidation cripple you. Find your calmness in God this morning, and let Him live inside of you.
