He Will Be

“He will be.” These three words hold such strength for me today. They sound so promising—so sure. A friend e-mailed them to me this morning, knowing that I’m going through a tough time dealing with my brother’s cancer. Reading those simple words, “He will be” brought scriptures flooding into my mind:

He will be… My Comforter - when my heart aches from a sadness I’ve never known before: “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit” (Psalms 34:18).

He will be… My Peace - when I wake up in the middle of the night with anxious thoughts: “Don’t be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will keep your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6).

He will be… My Helper - when I don’t know how to help and which choice is best: “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble” (Psalm 46:1).

He will be… My Answer – when I don’t have one: “Before they call I will answer; while they are still speaking I will hear” (Isaiah 65:24).

He will be… My Strength - when I feel helpless because I can’t change what is: “He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak” (Isaiah 40:29).

He will be… My Hope - when I forget to take my eyes off this world and look up: “I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living” (Psalm 27:13).

He will be… My Conqueror - once and for all, someday: “He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away” (Revelation 21:4).

He will be… My Preparer - when I forget that this world is not my home: “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him” (I Corinthians 2:9).

He will be… My Promise - when I need to be reminded that He won’t go back on His word: “And this is the promise that He has promised us—eternal life” (I John 2:25).

He will be… My Anchor - when the world, as I’ve known it since I was a little girl, is being turned upside down: “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8).

And He will be…for you, too. Whatever you might be going through or will go through, He will be everything you need. You’re not alone. He will be.
