… and He will rescue us again.

January Encouragement 2024

Heart


"We think you ought to know, dear brothers and sisters, about the trouble we went through in the province of Asia. We were crushed and overwhelmed beyond our ability to endure, and we thought we would never live through it. In fact, we expected to die. But as a result, we stopped relying on ourselves and learned to rely only on God, who raises the dead. And He did rescue us from mortal danger, and He will rescue us again. We have placed our confidence in Him, and He will continue to rescue us." {2 Cor. 1:8-10 NLT} 


When I saw this picture I connected with it on a very personal level and immediately knew I had to use it in this encouragement. Jesus has rescued me so many times even before I began following Him and He still rescues me today. 


The face on this lamb reflects the helplessness we all feel at one time or another. It can feel as though we're lost in the woods, and the flames are all around us. Those flames can take many forms, such as the pain of heartbreak, loss, confusion, and feelings of worthlessness and depression. 


I go back to what Paul and his ministry team were going through in Asia. They didn't think they would live through the overwhelming crush of troubles. They expected to die!


Paul also says, "But as a result, we stopped relying on ourselves and learned to rely only on God, who raises the dead. And He did rescue us from mortal danger, and He will rescue us again. We have placed our confidence in Him, and He will continue to rescue us."


Let me just stop and thank the Lord for a moment…


THANK YOU LORD FOR RESCUING ME!

THANK YOU LORD FOR RESCUING US!

THANK YOU LORD!

THANK YOU LORD!

THANK YOU LORD!


We pray you have a very blessed year!
