“Know that the Lord is God. It is He who made us, and we are His; we are His people, the sheep of His pasture.” Psalm 100:3
Say with confidence that the Lord is God and we belong to Him. Know this when you feel alone, know this when you feel abandoned by others, know this when you feel weakened by life’s trials and tribulations. God is with us; through Him we can endure through our struggles. Through Him we can forgive others their trespasses. Through Him we we can find rest and comfort. Through Him we have the assurance and strength to greet each day with joy and expectancy despite our circumstances. We know we serve a mighty and loving God. Let our behaviors reflect this.
May the Lord be with you today and always.
“But where can wisdom be found? Where does understanding dwell? Man does not comprehend its worth; it cannot be found in the land of the living.” Job 28: 12-13
Man understands on his level. His wisdom is his own. Many well-intentioned people will offer you guidance and wisdom during your trials and tribulations. Although they mean well, their understanding is limited. Much like the advice offered to the suffering Job by his friends Eliphaz, Bildad, Zophar and Elihu, human wisdom cannot provide complete answers or comfort. Only God is able to provide us with the endurance, strength, discernment, and peace needed to persevere through life’s inevitable troubles. We don’t have to always reject a sincere friend’s guidance, but the only truth we should accept is God’s. Turn to Him now.
May the Lord be with you.
“The Lord your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with Hs is love. He will rejoice over you with singing.” Zephaniah 3:17
Stay the course, though it may be hard. Remain obedient and faithful in the face of adversity. Do not rely on your possessions or your own wisdom. God is our true source of strength, peace and happiness.
Peace and love be with you.
“The Sovereign Lord is my strength; He makes my feet like the feet of the deer, he enables me to go on the heights.” Habakkuk 3:19
When problems come, they seem to come back-to-back, knocking the wind out of me and shaking my confidence. I try to not to let these moments rattle me but it happens as it happens for all of us from time to time. When we make the Lord our strength, however, He enables us to withstand difficult situations with confidence and assurance. Whatever difficulties you may be experiencing today, do not lean to your own understanding but, instead, lean on God for peace through it. He is with us and will deliver us, restoring our faith and making our feet like that of the deer, able to go on the heights.
God bless you.
