"I am with you!"


The Lord appeared to Issac at Beersheba and said,

"I am the God of your father Abraham.

Do not be afraid; I am with you.

I will bless you and give you many descendants because of my promise to my servant Abraham."

Issac built an altar there and worshipped the  LORD.

Genesis 26 : 23- 25.

Build an altar in your heart to the LORD and worship Him.

He will be with you and bless you and your descendants.

The Eternal Light.


No longer will the sun be your light by day

Or the moon be your light by night:

I, the LORD, will be your eternal light:

The light of my glory will shine on you,

Your days of grief will come to an end.

More lasting than the sun and the moon.”

Do not be afraid...I will save you..


“Do not be afraid, I will save you.
I have called you by name, you are mine.
When you pass through deep waters,
I will be with you;
Your troubles will not overwhelm you.
When you pass through fire,
You will not be burned;
The hard trials that come
Will not hurt you.
For I am the Lord your God.”
Isaiah: 43:1-3
