His master replied, “Well done, good and faithful servant!  You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things.  Come and share in your Master’s happiness!”

With all the things we encounter in this life, the pleasant and the harsh, this is to be our goal…to serve in faithfulness.  And our reward is God’s blessing and promise of sharing in His happiness eternally.

What areas test your faithfulness?  Take them to the Lord and ask for His divine help in your struggles today.

Be strong and courageous.  Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.

Terrified and discouraged...words that those who face disease and trials can readily identify with.  But these emotions don’t push one forward, they instead paralyze and make us feel isolated and alone.  The Bible instead encourages us to be strong and courageous as we recognize we aren’t alone as we walk through our trials…God is with us wherever we go!

Not to us, O Lord, not to us but to your name be the glory, because of your love and faithfulness.  Why do the nations say, “Where is their God?”  Our God is in heaven; He does whatever pleases Him. (vs. 1-3)

You who fear Him, trust in the Lord–He is their help and shield. (vs 11)

Sometimes we just need to be reminded of truth.  We want to ask questions, even rail out against His will for our lives…and yet our God is in heaven; He does whatever pleases Him.

And when we at last step out of ourselves, responding to our challenges in faith and entrusting ourselves to Him, we find He is our help and our shield.  He may not remove our hardship, but He is faithful to walk that journey with us.

We praise You, God our Father,  for being our help and our shield!

In my distress I called to the Lord;  I cried to my God for help.  From His temple He heard my voice; my cry came before Him into His ears.

In times of personal distress it is natural for us to call out to God.  Even those who don’t claim a relationship with God find themselves doing so as trauma or stress hits full force.  It is important to know that our cries don’t evaporate into thin air.  They are heard.  They come before a loving God who is willing to help us through our trials and wants us to lean on His strength.

We praise you God for hearing our cries for help!
