You Are Firmly Held By God

The enemy loves to torment us with worry, fear and anxiety when we are the most vulnerable. Let's face it, we're all a bit vulnerable right now. We are still in a worldwide pandemic that has affected our lives socially, emotionally, physically and financially. We are in the midst of a very contentious election season in our nation. There is civil and racial unrest in our nation and riots in many of our cities. Add to that all of the challenging circumstances that we experience living life on sin-sick planet earth, and yes, we are definitely vulnerable right now to satan's tricks. Thank God, that we have the Captain of the Lord of Hosts, Jesus Christ and His angel armies, fighting on our behalf. We also have the sword of the Spirit, the Word of God, as our weapon to use against satan's lies.

The other night, I woke up in the middle of the night tormented by anxious thoughts about everything from the upcoming elections, to the future, to finances, to our children and grandchildren. I knew that my mind was under attack by the enemy...  (Join me for the rest of this post on Sunday, October 25th  at Woman to Woman Ministries, where each Sunday I share a bit of Sunday Soul Food!)

still following,


  1. Elizabeth, I don't often read the Amplified and I so love that you share from the AMPC. "I will not. I will not. I will not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake you nor let you down, relax my hold on you! Assuredly not!"

    Those are powerful and reassuring words for us all to hold onto. Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing them! Blessings! xo

  2. This has definitely been a verse I go back to often!

  3. Oh, how we need to hand our anxiety over to God. Especially in the nighttime hours. Blessings to you as you continue to encourage others in the anxious days.

  4. I often remind myself in these days where my anxiety and doubt come from, and what a great reinforcing scripture this is to hold on to. Thanks for sharing this much needed read today.
