Hi friend! Hope you all had a wonderful holiday. It’s been a while since I’ve written but will be posting more this week. I am currently reading through an Amy Carmichael Devotional nd this one was such a good reminder to trust and rest in God’s peace. Be encouraged!
2 Thess. 2:16
These two familiar words ring in our hearts like bells. Dr. Way translates “strong
consolation” as all-prevailing encouragement. And he speaks of the hope of our heart as an anchor on which our soul rides safely: it cannot slip, it cannot break.
Everlasting consolation, what a word of joy that is! Some of us are tempted to wonder about the future. We
look ahead, and imagine, and fear. For us there is something especially vital in this
great thought of consolation that is not for today only, but for endless tomorrows.
Another word was written surely for any of us who are looking beyond the borders of
today: Isaiah 26:3–4. Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind (imagination) is stayed on Thee: because he trusteth in Thee. Trust ye in the Lord for ever: for
in the Lord JEHOVAH is everlasting strength.
