“Do not lose heart because of these two smoldering stubs of firewood.”
(Isaiah 7:4 NIV)
God comforts King Ahaz’s fears by saying, “Yes, they look like torches burning now, but in My sight, I see them as blown-out candles. Do not fear them.” Likewise, in relation to every adversary we face, God gives us a determined destiny. Whether this is something that affects us emotionally, mentally, psychologically, materially, financially, spiritually, or ethically, God has it all in His strong, steady hands if we belong to Him. We must believe this by faith, which only comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God (Romans 10:17).
