Verse of the Day: Psalm 34:15
The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are attentive to their cry.
Who are the righteous? Righteousness is more than the things we do; it’s what Jesus did for us on Calvary. We are made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus Christ. And this is true for everyone who believes, no matter who we are. (Romans 3:22 NLT) Because we have been made right with God we can rest assured that when we are in distress we can cry out to Him and be comforted in knowing that He hears us.
Verse of the Day: Psalm 34:19
The righteous person may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all.
Life can be hard and at times may even seem unfair. You will go through tough times but don’t give up hope. Keep your mind on the things above. Keep praying. Cry out to God and be comforted in knowing that He hears you. Keep your focus on God and He will get you through the troubles that come your way and in due time you will be delivered from them all.
Verse of the Day: Lamentations 2:19
Arise, cry out in the night, as the watches of the night begin; pour out your heart like water in the presence of the Lord.
God wants you to come to Him with the good and the bad. It’s easy to bring to the good through praise and thankfulness but we also need to bring our troubles to Him. He already knows what you’re going through but He wants you to bring it all to Him. It doesn’t matter if it’s anger, frustration, confusion, pain, suffering, lay it all at His feet. Don’t hold back, pour your heart out to God and He will give you peace.
Verse of the Day: Psalm 61:2
From the end of the earth will I cry to thee, when my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
There are times when we may feel far from God, when we feel alone, when our heart feels sad and overwhelmed. He is always there for you, He is in control and you can turn to Him with all your troubles. Cry out to the Lord and ask Him to strengthen your faith, for He alone is your rock and your salvation.
Verse of the Day: Acts 20:19
I served the Lord with great humility and with tears and in the midst of severe testing by the plots of my Jewish opponents.
There will be times when you will go through something so difficult you cannot see the light of day through your tears and your faith will be tested. You might even feel like giving up on God but that’s when you need Him most. Prayer is the most powerful weapon you have. Cry out to God, He hears you and He loves you. Don’t give up instead give it all to God.
Verse of the Day: 1 Chronicles 16:11
Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always.
No matter how many times you cry out to God for strength He will be there. He hears you every single time. Don’t give up, don’t stop seeking the Lord. Don’t let anything keep you from seeking His face.
Verse of the Day: Psalm 34:15
The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are attentive to their cry
As believers in Jesus we have been made righteous through Christ on Calvary and not by our own doing. We have, therefore, been adopted into the family of God the Father. We can rest assured that He watches over and protects us and when we cry out to Him we know He hears us.
