"Take courage and be stouthearted, all you who hope in the Lord." Psalm 31:24
In times of trouble, we need to be reminded God IS with us. He carries us through the storms and knows when we’re weary and weak. He helps us find HOPE and COURAGE to remember we are held by the power of His love.
Often, we feel burdened by the pain of doubt. But God finds the way to help. As we learn to TRUST, we begin to understand He IS capable and able to do what we cannot.
We must never underestimate His authority. He will help us face our fear and acknowledge the worry of wonder. He will provide for our needs. God will offer PEACE in His presence and take care of those He loves.
We must “occupy hopefulness” and remember we’re NOT alone. Things may be difficult now, but we must believe better days WILL come! God loves us. We might not know how everything will work out, but He does! We must be faithful, open our hearts for peace, rest in the comfort of His care and never forget where to find strength. Surely, He WILL handle our days. He is GOD and He is faithful!
God, thank you for waking us in Your presence. Please give us STRENGTH to fight our battles. YOU know how to handle our needs and help us find COURAGE and PEACE. Please be with those who need to be reminded YOU are working for the good. We will put our HOPE in YOU, faithful Father! We will give you our praise in EVERY situation, as we gratefully TRUST in YOU. Thank you, Lord! Amen
