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 His love.
The Bible has advice when we’re weary and weak. “Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.” Romans 12:12. It helps to remember we don't have to battle our 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."
God sees inside the worry of wonder when we’re feeling overwhelmed. He knows our struggles. When we experience difficult days, He wants us to TRUST in Him, let go of our control and BELIEVE He WILL handle every moment.
HE wants us to stay focused on following Christ. God longs for us to step closer and remain tethered to what is right. He arms us with everything we need to battle the devil’s lies and remember we are valued and loved! He helps us walk in truth and cope with HOPE to see us through whatever comes our way.
God opens our eyes for Jesus and guides us through days. He lifts us with arms of strength and gives us courage to be brave and hold on. He allows us to see glimpses of good while we’re held by His holiness and BELIEVE in His power to save.
God WILL find the way to remind us He is HERE in the midst of what we hold. We don’t live alone! When God speaks, “I AM HERE” we must take time to listen and truly hear what He has to say. His voice of reason will love us through anything we face.
We will never have to fight battles alone. GOD loves us! The Lord himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.” Exodus 14:14 NLT
Oh, how we need to cling to this promise. God will take what we surrender and place JOY where it belongs. Jesus will move us where HE wants us to arrive; held in the arms of His holiness, blessed by His presence in our lives and safely removed from the devil’s lies. It is where we will ALWAYS find perfect PEACE.
Dear God, thank you for PEACE that sets the stage for calm. Help us find STRENGTH in Your presence. When we’re weary and worn, help us remember who takes care of us and those we love. We’re so grateful for the power of Your authority! It helps us TRUST in YOU and welcome HOPE to cope. Thank you for holding us in Your holiness. It’s where we learn to live without fear and doubt. Help us walk in truth in the name of Jesus and leave the devil behind! YOU are worthy of love EVERY day of our lives. Thank you for the many ways YOU guide and provide. Thank you for blessings to come and Your faithful love that covers us in so many ways. Amen
