You will be secure, because there is hope; you will look about you and take your rest in safety. Job 11: 18 NIV
“Troubles are often the tools by which God fashions us for better things.” As we remain faithful, He provides STRENGTH when we’re weary and worn. He opens our hearts to witness His greatness and find courage in the comfort of PEACE.
It’s hard to deal with pressure when trials lead us far away from calm. But the Bible has advice when we’re worried and afraid. “Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.” Romans 12:12. It helps to remember we don't have to battle burdens alone. 1 Peter 1:6-7 says, “So be truly glad. There is wonderful joy ahead, even though you must endure many trials for a little while."
When life tries to knock us down, God WILL anchor us in His shelter. He WILL help us find courage when we need to be reminded of His STRENGTH. He WILL allow us to remember who is handling our days and help us stay grounded in His presence.
He WILL open our hearts for Jesus. When the wind blows with furry, He WILL help us bravely hold on. When our faith is tested by the storms, He WILL remind us who WILL love us through EVERY situation.
We must remember who is fighting our battles! God will hear our prayers for mercy and bring HOPE to those who WILL be rescued. He will help us feel the light of His love even on the darkest days of doubt. He is GOD and HE loves us! The Lord himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.” Exodus 14:14 NLT
Dear God, thank you for PEACE that sets the stage for CALM. Help us find STRENGTH in Your presence. Remind us to be faithful and TRUST. Forgive us when fear creates doubt. When the wind blows with furry help us remember YOU WILL calm the storm. We’re so grateful for the power of Your authority. It gives us HOPE. Thank you for holding us close so we will find refuge in YOU. Thank you for Your mercy, grace and love. It covers us with everything we need to be restored. Amen
