My Inspiration For Today…

Today while reading my bible this scripture stood out for me:

Isaiah 41:10 & 11 [NIV]
10 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. 11 “All who rage against you will surely be ashamed and disgraced; those who oppose you will be as nothing and perish.

I do all of my bible studying in the Amplified bible. So the Amplified put it like this:

10Fear not [there is nothing to fear], for I am with you; do not look around you in terror and be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen and harden you to difficulties, yes, I will help you; yes, I will hold you up and retain you with My [victorious] right hand of rightness and justice.

11Behold, all they who are enraged and inflamed against you shall be put to shame and confounded; they who strive against you shall be as nothing and shall perish.

A Christian is not what I am it is WHO I am, and that doesn’t mean I am better than or worse than any body else it just means that my outcome and my outlook should be different! It is truths like the ones stated here in Isaiah 41:10 & 11 that make life a lot easier to live!

Peace & Love!

    Regina thanks for this post it is much needed for me. I like studying with the NIV but i like the way the amplified put it too. A Christian is not what I am it is who Iam. I love it. My friend said my package did arrived the other day. I will check it when I return home.
