The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged."- Deuteronomy 31:8
I just want to start by saying, I HATE CANCER!
Last week, I found out 2 good friends my same age were diagnosed with breast cancer!! YES, within days of each other! This was a shock to say the least, Add to that 3 other gals younger than us all diagnosed within the past year or so. Not to mention 2 others who have fought the breast cancer battle and are now cancer free for several years.
It just seems to be coming faster & faster. At times, it seems like cancer is winning. It is easy to react and ask where God is in all of this.
As I prayed for my friends and many others dealing with other types of cancers, the Lord reminded me of His Word and what He promises.
I hope this scripture reminds us all today that God is still for us!
My Daughter, I see you. I see you struggling to understand. I hear you crying out to me during the night when you should be sleeping. I know all about those fearful thoughts that try to convince you that I am not here.
Let me tell you, sweet girl, I am right where I have always been. I have not moved one inch!
Your enemy is trying to convince you that I have forgotten you, but that could not be further from the truth. You see, my princess, when I told you” I would never leave you, nor forsake you”, I meant it forever. It is impossible for me to lie.
I know you fear the unknown. The unpredictable future. I hear the ‘what-ifs’ that are ricocheting in your mind. I know you, my love. I know every thought.
And I want you to know today, my daughter, that you are in the palm of my hands. I know you wonder how that is possible when circumstances are shouting otherwise, but remember…I cannot lie.
You are my precious girl. The one I made with that inquisitive mind, that spunk and personality. You were formed exactly as I needed you to be for Me. There was no mistake made in you.
Today is the day I want this truth to sink into your heart so deep and so strong that you remember this day as being a day that everything changed…..You are My daughter. I love you. You are NOT forgotten.
Most importantly today, you can be courageous & not afraid today as we walk this path together because I have already gone before you and I know the way! I have set things in motion. I have lined up care you know nothing about yet. I AM FOR YOU! I have your best interest and nothing less.
I need you to remember….I CANNOT LIE. You need to know that today, or tomorrow. And maybe again in a couple of months. I need you to commit to memory
“My GOD CANNOT LIE!”
This truth will be one for you to draw strength on in days to come.
This enemy enjoys seeing you hurt and destroyed. He wants nothing more than to have you blame me for any bad situation. He will use any tactic available to distract you from the precious relationship we share.
My Sweet Daughter, know today that I am here. I am for you. I have already gone before you. There is no reason for you to be afraid, you only need to hold My Hand and let Me carry you when you get tired. I promise to be whatever you need.
“I have gone before you and I will never leave you. You do not need to be afraid.”
You only need to Trust Me.
I AM GOD AND I CANNOT LIE.
