My Daily Devotional


Do Not Be Discouraged

“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.”
Isaiah 43:2

We are all going to have times of trouble in our lives, but we have God’s promise that He will be there to comfort us at all times. The Lord is faithful, and He will see us through our troubles and trials. Our strength comes from Jesus, and although our troubles sometimes seem to overcome and overwhelm us, He will not forsake us, as He promises us in the scripture above. Our problems and trials cannot cripple the love He has for us; it cannot shatter our hope; it cannot corrode our faith; it cannot destroy our friendships; it cannot suppress our memories; it cannot silence our courage; it cannot invade our souls; it cannot conquer the Spirit, but most of all it cannot steal our eternal life. We need to stand on God’s promise, when we face our trials and troubles, and realize who is really in control. Our God is in control, and although we don’t sometimes understand all things that happen to us, we need to put our complete faith and trust in Him. God can heal all wounds and take away the hurt. He can make us whole again, and restore and renew us, if we will only trust in Him. Without God in our life we would be swept away in the troubles of life, and would not be able to withstand the hurts and pains that befall us. We can all find the peace, contentment, joy and love that God can bring, by knowing and trusting in Him, even through our difficult times. So if you are struggling with something right now, look up, not out in the world for help, and God will help you to overcome.

Robert William Brock, Jr. I was born in Pineville, Kentucky, the son of Robert William Brock and Irene Napier, I grew up in the beautiful southeastern part of Kentucky.

After retiring from health care I have devoted the past ten years to a ministry, having founded and directed the Nehemiah Network, which provides assistance to the needy people in our area, by bringing together the numerous community organizations, churches and businesses to work collectively to meet the community needs. The Nehemiah Network concept has now spread throughout the nation and over 10,000 programs have been developed, in almost all the states, adopting the framework of the Network.
