“In the coldest of days, I will warm you.” By Maria Coffyn, DOTK Writing Community

“My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” Psalm 73:6

As summer is coming to an end, and fall is slowly rearing its head, I found myself experiencing feelings of dread as all I could see were the cold winter months ahead. For the past several years I have suffered with a body that becomes debilitated as the barometric pressure leaves me unwell due to a condition I’ve had for several years.

Last night as my mind started to go to that dark place, the Lord stepped in and with a clear and concise voice said, β€œStop. Why do you go to places that I have not yet taken you to yet? Why do you allow the enemy to cause you to fear as he attacks your mind with horrors that will never happen and vain imaginations that will leave you crippled.

Don’t let the weather dictate how you will feel. Rely on my Word to lift you up and out of your distress. I have instructed you in the way you should go. And that way is one day at a time with me. My way does not include false imaginations, worry, fear, anxiety of the future. Rather, you will bring all of your worries to me and I will calm you. You will pray to me for your healing. You will take my hand and allow me to lead you and guide you. When you are tired and weary, you will rest with me. When you obey me in this way, you will be in awe at what I will do for you.

So, this winter, don’t fret but rest for I will not bring more to you than you can bear. I will make a way for you. In the coldest of days, I will warm you and in the longest of nights I will speak loving words over you as I bring a deep sleep to you. This solstice will find you well for I am your God and I will heal you. You will not suffer through the winter but because you have trusted me, even the dreariest of days will find you joyful in the light of my love.”

Prayer: Father, I pray for anyone who may suffer from physical or emotional pain in cold winter seasons. I pray they would seek your face and allow your love and the truth of your word to lift them up and out of the darkness. I pray you fill them with your peace and joy as they trust in you. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
