DID YOU ever believe that our Savior had forsaken you in your darkest hour?
The people of Zion said (in Isaiah 49 verse 14) “The Lord has turned away and forgotten us.”
Those involved in First Nations ministry risk being deceived by the enemy, through ‘discouragement’, into believing that they’ve been forsaken.
TODAY, I INVITE YOU to pray with me that our Native people and those serving in Native Ministry will be encouraged.
Psalm 33:4 says “The Lord is truthful; he can be trusted.”
Isaiah 41:13 says, “I am the Lord your God. I am holding your hand, so don’t be afraid. I am here to help you.”
Isaiah 42:3 and 4, mentions that the Lord will not break off a bent reed or put out a dying flame, and that He won’t quit or give up.
Ask our Creator to allow our First Nations people and those serving in Native Ministry to know that He will not fail or forsake them.
I like to study with 5 translations. As you go through these studies, I encourage you to do the same. “The Scriptures” is a translation that includes the original Hebrew names and has the books in chronological order. The Contemporary English Version (CEV) is a translation that is written for ‘oral tradition’ peoples and it flows well while reading it aloud. The Amplified version is one where meanings of words and phrases are ‘amplified’ for better understanding. The King James Version (KJV) is the translation that works well with Strong’s Concordance. The Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) is a great companion version that I find gives great insight.
Joshua 1:5; Isaiah 42: 3-4; 1 John 1:9; Isaiah 49:14-20.
