The past weeks, and yes, the past year, have been some rough and stressful times – in the US, in Haiti, across the world.
Today I thought I’d just share some verses that I’ve found especially … helpful… in the midst of the madness.
Take a moment, forget that they are nice-Bible-verses-you’ve-read-a-hundred-times.
These are promises given by God!
They are powerful.
And, I’m finding, they are true…
I wish God changed everything – my situations, and me – in the blink of an eye.
And it’s scary and stressful that he doesn’t. But I am finding that as I DO what he says to do (which frequently, is just trusting him) HE does what he has promised!
For God has not given us a spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7
Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act. Psalms 37:5
You can go to bed without fear; you will lie down and sleep soundly. Proverbs 3:24
Don’t bargain with God. Be direct. Ask for what you need. This isn’t a cat-and-mouse, hide-and-seek game we’re in. You’re at least decent to your own children. So don’t you think the God who conceived you in love will be even better? Matthew 7:7-8
God reminds us, I heard your call in the nick of time; The day you needed me, I was there to help. Well, now is the right time to listen, the day to be helped. II Corinthians 6:2
He’s got it covered!
