Reflections on Bible verses

Psalm 56:3
When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.

You Are Not Alone

God said, “I will not forsake my people!”

The Lord is with us.
And with Him near—everything is different.

Even a serious illness.
Even death.
You aren’t facing illness or death alone
—the Lord is with you.

You may be facing marital struggles,
but you aren’t facing them alone.
The Lord is with you!

You may be facing debt,
but you aren’t facing debt alone.
The Lord is with you.

Your family may turn against you,
but God won’t.

Your friends may betray you,
but God won’t.

You may feel alone in the wilderness,
but you are not.
He is with you!

Job 42:2 NKJV

I know that You can do everything,
And that no purpose of Yours can be withheld from You.

You Can, because He Can

You can ask the Lord
because He will not give you a wrong answer.
You can wait upon the Lord
because His timing is always perfect.
You can trust in the Lord
because He makes no mistakes.
You can hope in the Lord
because He holds your future.
You can rest in the Lord
because He is in control of your life.
You can lean upon the Lord
because He is completely faithful.

7 Good Things…to Affirm about Guidance

We are all in need of God’s guidance in our lives—
when to move forward,
when to slow down,
when to wait,
when to say “yes” and when to say “no.”

The most important thing in knowing God’s guidance
is not about knowing a formula, but knowing God;
not about hearing opinions, but hearing God’s voice;
not about striving, but resting in God’s wise and wonderful will.

Here are 7 affirmations of faith relating to God’s guidance:

I don’t know the next step on the path, but I know the Guide
(Psalm 32:8).

I don’t know the next chapter in the book of my life of faith,
but I know the Author and Finisher.
(Hebrews 12:2).

I don’t know the best decision to make, but I know the Counselor
(Isaiah 9:6).

I don’t know how the need will be met, but I know the Provider
(Philippians 4:19).

I don’t know how I will get through, but I know the Way through
(Isaiah 43:16)

I don’t know all the answers, but I know the Truth
(John 16:13).

I don’t know how this will turn out,
but I know the One who cannot fail and never makes a mistake.
(Ephesians 1:11).

I know the One in whom I trust.
2 Timothy 1:12 (NLT)
