He will restore you and turn your sorrow into joy, your brokenness into beauty, your wailing into dancing.

My Deliverer

Psalm 34 19 2

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 difficult times but don’t give up hope. Remember, the Lord has gotten you through tough times before and He will get you through them again. 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 Him and He will get you through the troubles that come your way and in due time you will be delivered from them all. If not in this present life than surely in the hereafter where there will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain but only eternal happiness.

God Hears You

Psalm 86 7

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 86:7

When I am in distress, I call to you, because you answer me.

In this world we will have troubles. They can be troubles we bring on ourselves by our own actions or they can be brought on from other people. Sometimes they’re from the devil who tempts us and schemes against us. It can be an illness or hardship beyond our control. They can be troubles that last for a day, for a while or for a season. The important thing to know is that when you have a relationship with God you can always call on Him and know that He hears you and answers you. God hears your every prayer and when you learn to trust in Him, He will give you peace. Even when you can’t find the right words to pray God hears your heart.

Unashamed and Courageous

Philippians 1

 Verse of the Day:  Philippians 1:20

I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death.

God’s grace and the hope He gives us means we don’t have to be ashamed of any suffering we may encounter for Christ. We must have the courage to follow Jesus and declare Him to be the Son of God, the Messiah and the Lord of our lives no matter what is going on around us. People may mock or ridicule us for our faith and as believers in Christ when things are not going well or when we face troubles but do not be shaken for we serve a mighty God. Be courageous and determined to always do your very best to obey the call of God in all circumstances.

Keep On Keeping On

James 1 12 2

Verse of the Day:  James 1:12

Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.

There will be trials, there will be tough times, but God is with you and if you don’t give up you will be blessed. Be patient in afflictions, keep believing and keep praying. It’s no surprise that we will face adversity Jesus said we will have troubles but to take heart because He has overcome the world. So when these troubles come stand firm in your faith and trust in the Lord. Stay strong, you are not alone, and it will all be worth it in the end for when that day comes you will receive the crown of life, which is a gift from God.

Thankful

Psalm 30 12

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 30:12

To the end that my glory may sing praise to You and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.

It’s so important to thank God for what He has given us, what He has done for us and for who He is. Although our lives are not perfect and we may have troubles, we have so much to be thankful for. Even with everything going on in the world, we still have so much to be thankful for. No matter what is going on in our lives, there is always something to be thankful for so count your blessings instead of your troubles. Never stop giving thanks to God, even with your last breath, for He truly is worthy of all our praise.

Praise the Lord at All Times

Psalm 34 1.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 34:1

I will bless the LORD at all times; His praise will always be on my lips.

 

No matter what is going on in your life praise the Lord!  In good times praise the Lord, in difficult times praise the Lord.  At all times praise the Lord because praise invites God’s presence into your situation. Praise gets the focus off of you and onto God and when you focus on God it changes your heart and increases your faith. When something is troubling you start praising God.

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.

Peace

John 14 27.jpg

Things are going to happen in life that make you sad, scared or are just hard to get through.  When your heart is hurting, troubled or afraid turn to Jesus, He’ll give you peace beyond compare.
