Still Moments – Scaffolding of Strength


I know who goes before me. I know who stands behind. The God of Angel Armies is always by my side. (Chris Tomlin, Whom Shall I Fear)

“Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord will personally go ahead of you.  He will be with you; He will neither fail you nor abandon you.” (Deuteronomy 31:8)

Let me assure you of one thing today. God is with you, not just within shouting distance, not a phone call away, but with you, right beside you, within you, carrying you. Isaiah 43:2 says, “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.”

When, not if, you face trouble, the promise is God will be with you. He will be your foundation, your protector, your scaffolding of strength. Be still and rest in His strength today.
