The Lord who rescued me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear will rescue me from the hand of this Philistine.” Saul said to David, “Go, and the Lord be with you.”

 

If you’re going through a difficult time remember that you can have courage in your current situation because you know God has brought you through difficult times before and He’ll do it again. God was with you then and He’s with you now.

Rely on God’s Love

1 John 4 16.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  1 John 4:16

And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.  God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.

 

If your first thought of the day is “God loves me” it will change the way you react to things that happen throughout your day.  No matter what happens tell yourself, “It’s going to be okay, God loves me”.  You can rely on God’s love for you and His strength will get you through the most difficult days if only you would trust in His love for you.

God Will Get You Through It

2 Corinthians 4 8-9.jpg

 

Verse of the Day: 2 Corinthians 4:8-9

We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.

 

It’s not how many times you get knocked down, it’s how many times you get back up.  Jesus said we would have troubles then He said not to worry because He overcame the world.  Bad things happen, it’s how we handle them that matters.  Trust in the Lord with all your heart and have confidence in His love for you because He will get you through your troubles.

The Lifter of My Head

Psalm 3 3

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 3:3

But you, O Lord, are a shield about me, my glory, and the lifter of my head.

 

Thanksgiving Day is over and not everyone has or was able to spend time with family and friends.  For some, the holidays can be lonely and even a sad time. I sometimes feel it too. I miss loved ones that have passed and those who can’t be near me. But we are not alone, God is with us in every moment of every day. If we focus on the Lord, His goodness and our blessings He will get us through it.

God Will See You Through It

Psalm 34 19

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 34:19

A righteous man may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all.

 

The Bible never says that we, as believers in Christ, will not have troubles or that our lives will be problem free.  However, it does say that though we may have troubles, the Lord will deliver us from them all.  This verse gives us hope and encouragement to know that when you go through something difficult God is always there to help you get through it.

Deliverer

Psalm 34 19

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 34:19

The righteous person may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all.

 

Life can sometimes 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.  Keep your focus on God and He will get you through the troubles that come your way.
