TODAY’S SOUL-LIFTING SCRIPTURE for Friday, November 12, 2021.
New International Version:
“So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?”(Hebrews 13:6)
Good News Translation:
“Let us be bold, then, and say, “The Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid. What can anyone do to me?”
Amplified Bible, Classic Edition:
“So we take comfort and are encouraged and confidently and boldly say, The Lord is my Helper; I will not be seized with alarm [I will not fear or dread or be terrified]. What can man do to me?
Beloved, as a child of God, you must be able to confidently say - Without any hesitation or doubt, in all times of perplexity and threatening want; in all times when you scarcely know whence the supplies for your necessities are to come, that the Lord is your helper, and be assured that He will not leave you to suffer. The Lord in the infiniteness of His power, wisdom, and goodness, is a real, present, universal, and permanent help against all trouble, and for all supplies in all cases, and at all times, to every one of His children. He said,I will never, no, never leave thee, no, never forsake thee, so you have the gracious presence of God with you in life, at death, and for ever. Men can do nothing against God, and against you, more so, God can make all that men do against you to turn to your good. Do not be afraid, because there is this blessed assurance that the Lord is on your side, and that He will marvelously help you. And no matter trials or troubles you may be facing now, you don’t need to be under any painful apprehensions, for God is your protector and friend.
