" Why are you cast down, o my soul? and why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God."
When the battles in your life are raging out of control,and your strength is wasting away,
why not encourage yourself in the truths of God's Word?
Are you experiencing bittness because you have been wronged and there is seemingly no way to successfully defend yourself?
Why not encourage yourself in the truths of God's Word?
Open your Bible to Romans 8:28
God has ordained everything that happens in your life. And why has he done that?
The answer is:
For your good
and for His glory.
You may not think there is any "good"
or and "glory" in your situation,
but God says otherwise.
Reassure yourself that God's ways
are higher than your ways.
He is not obligated to explain His ways to you or to me. His ways are perfect and for the most part are passed finding out. Isn't this what trust is all about? We do not walk by sight but by faith.
He is near to you.
He is at hand.
He is your refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble
He is your personal, all powerful,
Thank Him for His great mercy
in making you conscious of your helplessness.
He is just as truly your Helper
when He is chastening you,
as when He is delivering you from trouble.
Trust Him today.
He is not far away.
Trust Him today!
