January 3, 2020 Save Article

BIBLE MEDITATION:

“So we may boldly say: ‘The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear. What can man do to me?’” (Hebrews 13:6).

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:

If you are going to face this year with steadfast resolve, you must find your contentment, your companionship, and your confidence in Christ. And then you'll find your comfort in Christ. Then you may boldly say, “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?”

I'm not trying to tell you life’s going to be all honey and no bees. No, the Christians in the book of Hebrews faced heartaches and trials. They had opposition from family, friends and foes alike. They faced mockery and brutality. Yet they could boldly say, “The Lord is my helper."

Friend, this coming year may be difficult for you. But I am telling you that you can stand upon the promises of the Word of God.

ACTION POINT:

We don't know what the coming year will bring—sickness, heartache, or trouble. But I do know you can boldly say, “The Lord will be my helper. I will not fear. What can man do to me?” Find your contentment, your companionship, and your confidence in Jesus. In Him, you will find your comfort and your courage.
