David was surrounded on all sides by difficulties and dangers and was afraid for his life yet he trusted in God. He acknowledged and admitted his fear and then asked God to show mercy on him and help him. If he had let fear over take his faith, he may have had a different outcome. Likewise, the enemy 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 accomplish 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 is with you and He will equip you for what He has called you to do. So many people never achieve the success God has planned for them because they are too afraid to take the first step. Don’t let fear keep you from living the life God has planned for you.
Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
I am personally inviting 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 by faith to really seek and experience Him for yourself. A good place to start is by praying and reading the Word of God daily.
And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
If you’ve never gone through something so difficult that you can’t see how you’re going to make it through and you can’t see the light at the end of tunnel these may just feel like words on paper. But I’m here to tell you from personal experience that God will see you through hardships and He will provide for your needs if you trust Him with all of your heart. Turn to the Lord, He is the Light of the world, He is a way maker. It may not be in a way you were expecting but God will provide enough to meet your needs. In times of need, turn to God. In times of plenty, be a blessing to someone in need because sometimes God uses others to bless you and at other times He may ask you to be a blessing to someone else in need.
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 God calls you to do something, He gives you the strength and courage to do it. You don’t have to worry if you’re smart enough, gifted enough or skilled enough. All that matters is that God is with you. The Lord has commanded you to be strong and courageous. When you are afraid or discouraged, turn to God. It doesn’t matter what it is, you don’t have to do it alone, He will be with you every step of the way. Trust in God and in His power. He will give you the strength and courage to get through anything He calls you to do.
Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.
Life is not always sunshine and flowers. There are days when bad things happen, days when sadness creeps in and there are days when we just feel lonely. In these times, you need to lift your head toward God and give praise to your Savior. The way to forget your troubles is to remember God’s goodness. God loves you more than you will ever know. Turn to Him in your times of trouble. Thank Him for all the good in your life. He hasn’t forgotten you, He is close to the brokenhearted. Put your hope in God and rely on Him to get you through even the darkest of days. Let your faith and hope in God be the path to victory.
The LORD is good to all; he has compassion on all he has made.
God is the definition of perfect goodness. He is kind, caring, compassionate, generous and merciful toward all who seek Him. There isn’t a single person God is not ready and able to bless. There isn’t a single person God isn’t willing to show mercy and forgiveness to. There isn’t a single person who God does not want to have eternal joy. Everything from God is good and all good things are from God. Turn to God and seek Him with all of your heart so that you may know His everlasting goodness and love.
Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him.
There may be times when all your efforts lead to disappointment, your plans don’t work out, temptation may seem to great or your current situation seems hopeless. Don’t lose hope, turn to God, leave it all in His sovereign hands. Wait patiently on the Lord and on His promises. Find rest in the Lord for when you put your problems in God’s hands He puts peace in your heart.
Turn to me and be saved, all you ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other.
Turn to God and be saved. You won’t find salvation in idols, in man, not even in yourself. Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord. (Acts 3:19) God loves you so much He made a way for you to be reconciled with Him when He sent His only Son, to die on the cross for your sins. Jesus is the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Him. (John 14:6) Jesus is the Savior for the lost, the light for those in the dark, the strength for the weak, the comforter for the discouraged and the healer for the sick. God is offering you salvation while there is still time.
The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.
Everyone has days when they feel discouraged. You might be having a really bad day when nothing seems to go right and you just feel like giving up. Those are the kind of days when all you can do is turn to God and give it all to Him. When you do, He reminds you that no matter what you’re going through He is with you and He will never leave you. He will always be there to guide you, to strengthen you and to protect you. Trust in the Lord and He will give you the courage to keep on going.
