What Jesus Means to Me During Black History Month

We all have a responsibility to remember the things God has done. We can remember the work of the Lord throughout history, through our family lineages, and our personal lives, and we should tell these stories to our children. Our history and legacies should not be forgotten. They are all a part of God’s redemptive story. Therefore, we can look back even to the difficult times and remember when God delivered.

Do you remember the great things God has done for you? Have you forgotten his mighty hand at work in your life? The same God who delivered the Israelites and African Americans out of slavery is all-powerful to deliver you from whatever situation you are in today. Remember who He is and what he has done. If He did it before, He can do it again. He most certainly will deliver you.

If you find yourself in a dry place today, I give you the same words God gave to Joshua when he and the Israelites came out of the wilderness: “Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go (Joshua 1:9).” Jesus is with you always, even until the very end of this age (Matt. 28:20). He is our mighty deliverer!

Trust God! Hold on, my sister. Hold On!
