(Isaiah 41:13) For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear. I will help you.

The third round of stimulus checks issued by the government to help families and businesses buffer some of their financial strains is needed and much appreciated. Hopefully, the funds will give parents a chance to establish some leverage in their finances. As for businesses, there is an economic boost on the horizon. The checks are a good thing, but let’s face it – they won’t last long. Fortunately, we have a stimulus of our own called faith, and it activates the power of God in our life. We can trust in God to help us endure difficult times no matter how long they may last, until we can embrace better days and improved circumstances. Those times are well on their way. When God says He will help us, He means it; not just a time or two, but always. Keep your faith stimulated and firmly focused on trusting God. Thank Him for the many ways He takes care of you.
