Kanaan Message for Today
Once — perhaps it was only yesterday — you saw how God answered prayer, helped you in your troubles and brought you through your afflictions. Once — perhaps it was only yesterday — when you were very sad, you saw how He comforted you and did not allow you to be tempted beyond your powers of endurance. Do you think that the God of yesterday is not the same as the God of today? Believe that just as ‘Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and for ever’, so is God your Father the same for all eternity. He will take care of you today as well. He will not allow you to be tempted beyond your powers of endurance today either, but will carry you through. Cling to this knowledge in implicit trust. Then you will overcome all difficulties through faith in the One whose power and love are the same today (Hebrews 13:8, 1 Corinthians 10:13).
