He carries us

I love the voice of my God. It is so sweet. It gives hope and faith to my tired soul. Deuteronomy 1:29-31, "Then I said to you, 'Do not be in dread or afraid of them. The Lord your God who goes before you will himself fight for you, just as He did for you in Egypt before your eyes, and in the wilderness where you have seen how the Lord your God carried you, as a man carries his son, all the way that you went until you came to this place.'"

There's been a lot going on around here. Some wonderful and others a terrible reminder of the wickedness of sinful man. Areas of confusion, spiritual attack, time of testing...and then times of great rejoicing and overwhelming thankfulness. No matter what is going on, our God is faithful. Sometimes I have had to tell myself that over and over until I could believe it deeper. 'I believe, help me overcome my unbelief.' Our God carries us. All the way until you come to "this place". Whatever it may hold, wherever it is- it will be good. But so is this- I am being carried. Lord, don't stop until you finish this work in me. I don't ask for deliverance, but to see your glory,your face more visible, to feel your presence sweeter, and to be more given and more used by you. Don't stop until you have done what you desire. I don't want the easy way. I want you. Only you. Oh that my life would show that all I have is you! Make it be! I can't fight this, but you can. I can stand strong on your Word. You are faithful. Faithful to your name. Faithful to your word. Continue to empty me. Teach me. I don't know what to do, but keep my eyes upon you. Rejoice, my soul, you are found in Him. My rescuer. My prince. My beloved. Come Lord. 'As a deer pants for flowing streams, so pants my soul for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God?' Oh, that I may see you.
