Life as we know it seems to be ‘unbearable’ - given all that is going on with inflation, high cost of living, rumors of war, wars and natural calamities such as earthquakes and floods.
It appears as if all is doom and gloom, but as God’s children and the kingdom citizens we are, the Lord would like to remind us that there is no reason to fear.
The rhema word from the Lord in this season is that He has wrapped you in His arms.
The word ‘arm’ in Hebrew means ‘zᵊrôa’ (zer-o'-ah) which, when translated means strength, help, power and mighty.
Here are some Scriptures to remember that speak to the arm of the Lord and His unmatched strength, might and power.
1. The arm of the Lord Is strong and powerful.
Through it He delivers and redeems His children from hardship, oppression (Exodus 6:6; Deuteronomy 4:34; Deuteronomy 26:8)
You have no reason to fear economic hardship, downturn or that you'll be unable to pay your bills.
As long as you trust the Lord, He is faithful to make a strange way especially for you and work all things out for your good.
You will not lack or beg for bread (Psalm 37:25) and He will daily load you with His benefits (Psalm 68:19)
2. There is shelter/help from danger and attack in His strong outstretched arms (Psalm 91:4).
You need not fear life’s storms, the terror of night, the arrow that flies by day, the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, the plague that destroys at midday, warfare, resistance and attack from the enemy.
His arms are a stronghold for you in times of trouble (Psalm 9:9)
He will hide you in the day of trouble (Psalm 27:5; Psalm 119:114)
3. His arm will save and deliver you...
from your afflictions, the attacks from the enemy, those who hate you and plot against you because you put your trust in Him (Psalm 34:19-22, Psalm 89:10, Isaiah 52:10)
His arm is not too short to save you nor is His ear too deaf to hear you when you call (Isaiah 59:1).
As a result of this assurance, you can depend on God (Psalm 118:15-16)
4. The Lord’s arm is powerful
When He moves He does glorious, marvelous things (Psalm 98:1)
God is well able to do great things, and unsearchable, marvelous things without number (Job 5:9;Jeremiah 32:17)
Praise Him in your waiting.
5. His arms bring restoration, reward and judgement (Isaiah 40:10, Isaiah 30:30 and Isaiah 51:5)
6. In His arms you experience His love, communion with Him and rest (Isaiah 40:11)
Earnestly press into His presence in the secret place for you shall reap if you do not faint.
God is consistent. He is a man of integrity.
Find peace in the safety of being wrapped in His strong, powerful outstretched arms and in your conviction that you know whom you have believed. Remain persuaded that He is able to keep that which you have committed unto Him against that day (2 Timothy 1:12)
