Isaiah 12:2

Isaiah 12:2

12:2 Surely God is my salvation; I will trust, and will not be afraid, for the LORD GOD is my strength and my might; he has become my salvation.

This is one of those verses that I like to call a “Power Verse”. What exactly is a “Power Verse”? You might be asking. Well, a Power Verse is any portion of scripture that speaks to you in any given moment. Is this a theological term? Not by any means. This is a simple term which I made up for those verses that strike me as deeply profound in the moment. For scriptures such as this one.  Often are the times that I have to remind myself to trust in God. To trust in God’s will for my life. To trust in the calling that God has placed upon me and to not be afraid. I turn to verses such as this one in Isaiah to reinforce the faith which I cling to. To remember that even Isaiah, a mighty prophet of God, had moments of doubt and uncertainty and fear. And he held onto and grew stronger in his faith in God. And so shall I. And so shall you.

Mighty, magnificent God, help me to always trust in you. Amen

Mighty, magnificent God, help me to always trust in you. Amen.
