We know dear brothers and sisters, that God loves you and has chosen you to be His own people.
Live with confidence and walk with your head held high knowing that God loves you and has chosen you to be His own people. You belong to the Father because the Father chose you. How wonderful is that? To know that God Himself chose you should give you the faith you need to follow Jesus wholeheartedly.
being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
Have you ever felt like it was taking way too long for God to change you? You might even have wished you could rush God into changing you over night. We all do, but it doesn’t happen that way. You need to be confident that in His way and in His timing he is changing you. We know this because He always finishes what He starts, so when you feel like you’re not changing fast enough, have faith and trust that God is still working on you.
Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.
We are not always good at waiting, it’s just our nature. We get impatient, frustrated, and start to doubt God’s will in our lives. But we need to be confident in God’s goodness. We need to wait on the Lord’s timing, hope in his mercy, and believe in his promises!
If you need something you should go directly to the source. Take it to God in prayer, be bold and confident with your personal petitions, with the right motives, and be persistent. If your prayers are not answered immediately keep praying, keep asking, and keep believing.
Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him.
Hope is a gift from God. Hope is confidence in his love for me. Hope is the expectation of my future with God. Hope is the optimism I have that no matter what may come God will get me through it. Hope is the anticipation of drawing closer to God. Hope is the courage to do what’s right. Hope is the assurance I have knowing that with God all things are possible.
I will declare that your love stands firm forever, that you have established your faithfulness in heaven itself.
We can be assured that God honors and fulfills his promises. We can rely on God’s faithfulness which has been founded in heaven. Our hope and confidence in him lies in his faithfulness because his Word is true and trustworthy forever and ever.
We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.
If our hope is anchored in Jesus, when we go through storms we can be confident that we will remain connected, safe, and secure. Whatever storm we face we can trust that Jesus will never leave us and our hope is never misplaced.
