Have you ever felt that you’ve not accomplished anything important? Here at the Jordan River where Jesus was baptized, do you hear God speaking to you today? “You are my beloved, my beloved child. And my love, my favor, always will rest upon you.”
Mark 1:11, NLT, You are my dearly beloved Son and you bring me great joy."
Life has changed so drastically for all of us. As we go through the various challenges of life, especially in this “new normal,” remember that we have nothing to fear. Elohim Ozer Li, which means, God is my helper, is also the sustainer of my soul. He holds up my soul, He keeps it, He supports it. How can we get through this time? With Elohim Ozer Li, God is my helper.
Psalm 54:4, NASB:
Behold God is my helper,
The LORD is the sustainer of my soul.
Jehovah-Jireh means not only that God sees but that God provides. This name of God tells me that even before we came into this unusual situation that we are all going through around the world, God saw it, and He provided for us.
Genesis 22:14: Abraham named that place "the LORD Sees" (CEB).
And Abraham called the name of that place, "The LORD-Will-Provide" (NKJV).
In the Bible the Greek word for ‘endure’ is a combination of two words that give us a beautiful dual meaning, says Raquel Arrais. One, that you can remain under (sustain) problems; and two, that you have the capacity to stay under the load of troubles. In other words, having endurance means you have physical strength to bear the burden of the problem as well as strength of character put up with the problem.
Romans 5:3, 4 (NLT): “We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation.”
