Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him. [NLT] Psalm 91:1-2 #Verseoftheday
Verse of the Day
How long, Lord? Will you forget me for ever?
How long will you hide your face from me?
How long must I wrestle with my thoughts and day after day have sorrow in my heart?
How long will my enemy triumph over me?
Look on me and answer, Lord my God.
Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death, and my enemy will say, ‘I have overcome him,’ and my foes will rejoice when I fall. [NIV] Psalm 13:1-4
Have you been feeling disillusioned lately, even to the point that you’ve started to think you’ve been forgotten by Jesus? Have you started to think and speak like this psalmist in Psalm 13:1-4, since it appears things are just not working? Even the same psalmist said “But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation. I will sing the Lord’s praise, for he has been good to me” (Psalm 13:5-6) reminding you (and me) that just because you think Jesus May have forgotten you, He truly hasn’t. Because in the end you will experience the goodness of God over your life regardless of how you feel or what you think! So cheer up, you’re not forgotten, the struggles will never overcome you because He sees all that you’re going through and all will be well in the end. Your testimony will be like that of the psalmist who ended his tirade that even though he wondered if he’d been forgotten, in the end the goodness of God over his showed him that he wasn’t. Have faith in Jesus, all will work out just fine. #VerseoftheDay #bible #Jesus #Forgotten #faith
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. [NIV] 1 Peter 5:7 #Verseoftheday
Verse of the Day
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. [NIV] Isaiah 49:29
All human life is a warfare; there will always be one form of a struggle after another. It may be academic, trying to get that job, looking to settle down, family life, whatever it may be there will always be a season in your life when you will encounter a form of struggle or another, emotional, financial and so forth. The Lord says when you find yourself in a situation when you’re feeling lost, weak, weary, confused, He says He will give you strength and increase your power. It is to be expected, but don’t let it all overwhelm you. The battle is not over yet, you will yet see the goodness of God in this land of the living, and sooner than than you will ever realise, that season will be a distant memory in Jesus name. Amen. #VerseoftheDay #Devotional #Bible #Jesus #Struggling #Struggles #Season #Life
The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him. [NIV] Psalm 28:7
Verse of the Day
I have observed something else under the sun. The fastest runner doesn’t always win the race, and the strongest warrior doesn’t always win the battle. The wise sometimes go hungry, and the skillful are not necessarily wealthy. And those who are educated don’t always lead successful lives. It is all decided by chance, by being in the right place at the right time. [NLT] Ecclesiastes 9:11
We have come to share in Christ if we hold firmly till the end the confidence we had at first. [KJV] Hebrews 3:14
Life is uncertain, it is not always the best, the strongest or the fastest that reaps the rewards of life; it’s those who stubbornly keep persevering, holding onto the things of God in spite of what life throws at you. Why? Because in the end, in His time He will come through for you. And not giving up on God brings you that much closer to your breakthrough. William Feather said, “Success seems to be largely a matter of hanging on after others have let go” while Robert Brault said, “Stubbornly persist, and you will find that the limits of your stubbornness go well beyond the stubbornness of your limits,” I think that’s a good advice, I believe that’s how we ought to be with our lives when it comes to the things of God. Regardless of where we are in life, or the struggles we encounter, our refusal not to let go of God gives us that fighting chance to live the life He created us to live! Create your own chances with Jesus, you stand a better chance in life with Him on your side than without!! #VerseoftheDay #bible #Devotional #Jesus #Chances #Stubborn #Perseverance
And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people [NIV] Ephesians 6:18
The Lord bless you and keep you all. As we pray for ourselves lets not forget to keep one another in prayer. And may the Lord establish that which He desires in our lives in Jesus name. Amen #Verseoftheday #Devotional #Bible #Jesus #Prayer #PrayForOneAnother
