My Dear Friends, Brothers and Sisters in Ukraine,
My heart is heavy as I read and watch the news. This morning as I read the Psalms I have prayed so many of those words over you.
As you are attacked, as you shelter in basements, as you hear the air raid sirens, know that God is beside you. He will give you strength for today.
There is so much in the Bible that I could write to you, but I think these words of Paul expresses my heart for you…
“I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. It is right for me to feel this way about you all, because I hold you in my heart, for you are all partakers with me of grace, both in my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel. For God is my witness, how I yearn for you all with the affection of Christ Jesus. And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.”
Philippians 1:3-11 ESV
Even as the attack rages, HE IS WITH YOU!
Remind yourself that God is with you.
