The devil will use fear to keep you from the plans God has for your life. He knows if he keeps putting doubts and fear in your mind you will never step out in faith to achieve what God has planned for you. Turn to God, put your trust in Him alone. When you are afraid, step out in faith knowing that God will never lead you in the wrong direction. Don’t let fear keep you from living the life God has planned for you.
Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust and will not be afraid, for the Lord God is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation.
With all the uncertainty in the world around us we can put our trust in God our Savior. We can face anything and not be afraid because God is our strength and our salvation. God loves you and he is for you. He has always been there for you in the past and he will always be there for you in the future.
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.
I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.
How awesome to have a friend in Jesus. He knows you, he cares about you, and he loves you. He’ll never leave you and you can always count on him. He wants to spend time with you so you will never feel alone. You can tell him anything and know that he will never betray your trust. Jesus is the best friend you could ever have.
You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy.
For whatever reason, be it sin, mourning, sickness, or something else, if you are in a season of darkness turn to God. He is the restorer of light and by his grace he will turn your sorrow into joy, your brokenness into beauty. Trust God to restore you to the person he created you to be.
All the days of the oppressed are wretched, but the cheerful heart has a continual feast.
You can choose to be worried and troubled or you can choose to trust God and be happy. The way to a happy heart begins in giving thanks to God in every situation. You can always find something to be thankful for even if you have to look a little harder. Be grateful for the little things that God can use to fill your heart with joy.
