God the Father Holds You in His Hands

"31And in the wilderness, where thou hast seen how that the LORD thy God bare thee, as a man doth bear his son, in all the way that ye went, until ye came into this place." (Deuteronomy 1: 31)

Even in the most desperate and desolate of times, know and believe that the LORD your God loves you.

Never look at your circumstances, but always look at the Cross, where Jesus died for you and as you, that you would receive His righteous standing before God the Father:

"For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: 4(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) 5Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;" (2 Corinthians 10: 3-5)

What was accomplished for us at the Cross, in full?

"For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father." (Romans 8: 15)

And then

"Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not." (1 John 3: 1)

 And of course:

"Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world." (1 John 4: 17)

You see, Beloved, you are in Christ, so you can rest assured that your Father in Heaven is carrying you through every storm, every trial you may face.

While Satan wants you to be distracted by what is going around you or within you, just bring every thought into captivity to this truth:

I am a child of God because of Christ Jesus, and I know that my Daddy-God is carrying me through it all!
