God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Psalm 46:1 NIV
We often hear people say “keep the faith” when we face difficult circumstances. In times of trouble, we try to remember God IS with us. But sometimes we forget to COPE with HOPE. We worry about what’s to come and need to be reminded who is in control.
Circumstances lead us closer to God. While we are held by His love, He arms us with everything we need to remain faithful and TRUST. God gives us strength and places peace in our hearts. He reminds us who handles all things. In the midst of trouble, He makes His presence known and allows us to experience how it feels to be hugged with the heart of His holiness.
We won't be crushed by the frailties of life. God will take care of us and those we love! The Bible says if we have faith as small as a mustard seed, God will hear our prayers and answer in His will. This is a promise that will keep us going.
God will speak to our hearts and give us wisdom. In moments of surrender, we’ll find courage to hold on tight and discover how it feels to be lifted. He will navigate our days and lay a trail for us to follow. He knows the longing of our hearts and will provide everything we need to welcome calm. GOD will carry us ALL of our lives.
We must patiently wait and keep the faith! God will help us remember WHY we're not alone. We must seek Him with all of our hearts, believe in His power to save and "never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.”
Dear God, Thank you for the power of Your love. We will faithfully trust You all of our days and seek You with humbled hearts. Fill us with HOPE while we’re held in Your arms of strength; safely in Your shelter. We will trust You today, tomorrow and forever! You are our refuge; our ever-present help in times of trouble. We BELIEVE in Your power to save. Thank you, Lord. Thank you! Amen
