I lie down and sleep: I wake again because the Lord sustains me.
If you’re reading this, you woke up this morning, not everyone did so be thankful for another day the Lord has given you. Remember, no matter what is going on your life you can rest in the arms of God. If you turn to Him, He will give you protection and peace. Have a blessed day!
For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
The Bible, which is the Word of God, isn’t some old irrelevant book of stories. It is alive and active today and forever more. If you begin to read God’s word, I promise, it will begin to change your life. Whatever you are going through the answer is in God’s word.
Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
I urge you to experience the infinite goodness of the Lord. He is perfect in every way, the author of all good things, everything about him is good and he loves you. Turn to him, put your hope in him, and put your trust in him alone. He is the only one that can fill your heart with peace. You will never know what it’s like to have a relationship with the Lord until you make an effort to really experience Him for yourself through prayer and reading the Word of God.
Be careful how you think; your life is shaped by your thoughts. (GNT)
If you think your thoughts don’t matter you are very wrong. When you think about things or believe something whether it’s good or bad, it turns into things you do, if you do these things enough times it turns into a habit. Your habits determine your character and your character determines who you are in life and where you will spend eternity.
Have I not commanded you, be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.
When you feel weak, afraid, or discouraged turn to God. He heals the brokenness and brings peace and joy. You don’t have do it alone, he’ll will be with you every step of the way. Trust in God and he’ll get you through it.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Every now and then I have one of those days when I feel so tired that everything just hits me all at once. I just feel like climbing into bed and sleeping for a week but I know I can’t. I have too many responsibilities to take care of. So, I close my eyes and ask God to give me strength to make it through the day and I remind myself that I CAN do all thing through Christ who strengthens me.
I will consider all your works and meditate on all your mighty deeds.
During prayer take time to be still and reflect on all that the Lord has done for you. This is especially helpful when your current circumstances are challenging. Remembering the ways God has been merciful to you in the past will give you comfort and peace as he brings you through your present situation.
