Do you have a fixer in your life? My husband, because he loves me, he wants to fix my problems. He’s by nature a fixer. When I’m scared about something, he wants to fix it, so I’m not afraid.
However, most times, I don’t need him to fix my problems. I need Him to love me and to point me back to the one who is our ultimate protector.
That verse reminds me of two things: First, sometimes, we don’t need the fix. We just need an encouraging word. What’s that encouraging Word? God’s Word.
The second thing it reminds me of is that God is there for me. He’s there for you. No matter what problem you're facing. No matter what fear you’re experiencing, Be strong and fear not! God is there!
Whatever it is you’re facing today, I’m sorry. I know it is hard and can be overwhelming but be encouraged. God loves you. He cares for you. He is and always will be there for you.
