Psalm 23:4 says, “Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.”Having faith in the darkest valley— during a global pandemic, for example—is bold. It’s natural to feel fearful right
now, but believers can have a bold faith and hope during a crisis because of who our God is.

He is never changing, even when our world does. (Malachi 3:6)

He is all-powerful, strong and able to do anything He wills. (Psalm 147:5, Romans 1:20)

He is all-knowing, having knowledge of everything past, present, and future. (Isaiah 46:9–10)

He is faithful and always will be. (2 Timothy 2:13)
 
And He is so much more. He is beyondwhat we can conceive in our limited human minds. His purposes and
promises are sure, even when we don’t understand them. Even when we aren’t sure where He is or what He’s doing.

As Charles Spurgeon said:
“God is too good to be unkind and He is too wise to be mistaken. And when we cannot trace His hand, we must trust His heart.”
 
Again, trusting God and having faith during a pandemic is a bold stance. But do you know what else is bold? Coming
before the Almighty God of the universe in prayer.
Hebrews 4:16 instructs us: “Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain
mercy and find grace in the time of need.”

Come boldly to the God who is unchanging, always faithful, and never
caught by surprise. Keep your faith in Him and let the knowledge of who He is calm your fears.
Forward this to someone who needs encouragement for today.

Please pray for my husband who has been having such a hard time at work. I just found out that he was issued a written warning. I am so worried.

"Hi I need prayer to completely defeat lust in my life and the after affects, it has been a source of many of my problems, thank you very much for your prayers! Also... I need prayers so that I can go to bed early, so that I can be productive during the day, also that I can pay all my bills off. And get out of debt, so that I can give generously to deserving ministries... marriage with Rosa (newly weds)! Reconciliation with my daughters. And a good relationship with my Ex. Dyna that she would be on fire for God! Thank you very much for the prayers... amen... blessings to you!... Andy"
