In every age circumstances and trials cause a stirring in the human heart for a word from the Lord. No other word will do. Surely ours is such a time when a word from the Lord is greatly needed. Take heart friend, God has an encouraging Word for us today.

“Seek the Lord while He may be found; Call upon Him while He is near…For as
the rain and the snow come down from heaven and do not return there without
watering the earth and making it bear and sprout, and furnishing seed to the
sower and bread to the eater; so will my Word be which goes forth from My mouth;
it will not return to Me empty, without accomplishing what I desire, and without
succeeding in the matter for which I sent it” (Isa. 55:6, 11).

“Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called
in one body; and be thankful.
Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and
admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing
with thankfulness in your hearts to God.
Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the Name of the Lord Jesus,
giving thanks through Him to God the Father” (Colossians 3:15-17).
