God’s pleasure is caring for His sheep. He does this by the Holy Spirit, which He has given to all His children in order that we may live. Through His nurturing spirit, He restores our soul.
He restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness
for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
No trial is too great and no tribulation is too strong that it would hold back God’s hand from our lives. His love for us is greater. Things can change in a moment; therefore, brothers and sisters, let God’s love flow through us as a testimony to those who are lost.
God will never abandon us. He will never forsake us. Our joy comes from knowing we have His love to comfort us. He will replenish the light in our eyes and apportion strength to our bones so that we can overcome daily the ruthless attacks delivered by the evil one.
All glory belongs to our God. Praise Him from the mountains. Praise Him from the hills. Praise Him from the countryside. Praise Him from the ocean. Bless Him and praise Him always. His love endures forever.
Jesus commanded us not to be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Today’s trouble is enough for our mind to resolve, for God will provide us with the strength to overcome whatever ails us. Daily we are to look to God for guidance.
“And he said to his disciples, ‘Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat, nor about your body, what you will put on. For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing. Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds! And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? If then you are not able to do as small a thing as that, why are you anxious about the rest?’”
We should not worry about the coming days. We should meditate on the present moment as if it were our last. Whatever may be stealing our thoughts is seldom important. Whatever we need is seldom in our thoughts.
If we come to rely on God for all things, He will provide for our needs. We ought not to worry, as worrying brings anxiety. What is anxiety? To fear is to be anxious and not trust God. Trust God and he will relieve the anxiety.
Trust in the Lord in all you do, and He will bless you without restraint. His goodness is great, His mercy is sure, and He will give you of His abundance so that you can live according to His will.
Trust in the LORD, and do good;
dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness.
Delight yourself in the LORD,
and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the LORD;
trust in him, and he will act.
He will bring forth your righteousness as the light,
and your justice as the noonday.
The Lord is good in all of His ways. He discerns the spirit, gives to the humble and calls the lost into the fold. He gives wisdom to His shepherds and His judgments are righteous. All good things come from the Lord.
All glory belongs to the Lord our God. His power is from everlasting to everlasting. Let us give of our hearts to Him and He will richly reward us with joy, peace and grace. No one can come between our God and us; therefore trust the Lord in all things.
Let us be humble in all our dealings, never taking credit for what others have done but giving credit to the one owed. For as long as we do good, our reward in heaven will never fade; whatever we bind here, God will bind in heaven.
“Whoever desires to love life and see good days, let him keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit; let him turn away from evil and do good; let him seek peace and pursue it.”
(1 Peter 3:10-11)
Our trust is in the Lord. He knows what is good and beneficial for us as we move toward becoming like Him. When we do good, we are His to do as He pleases. He is the one who will receive the glory and He is the one who will give us the reward.
Let us not grow weary of doing good. Our joy comes from doing God’s will as Jesus had done when He gave Himself for us. Could we give more than Christ had given? Our will should be God’s will, for that is how we grow to become like Him.
Finally, brethren, do not hold back God’s spirit from performing a good work with your hands. He will surely bless you for allowing Him to use you in every way He could use you. He is not one to show favoritism to gain advantage. Therefore, do good always.
When all hope is lost is when the Lord will provide the most. He will lift us from calamity. He will lead us away from strife. He will cover us with His power so that we do not need to be anxious in the day of persecution. He will protect us.
Blessed be the Lord,
who daily bears us up;
God is our salvation. Selah
Our God is a God of salvation,
and to GOD, the Lord, belong deliverances from death.
No evil in the world can overcome the Lord. He is good and faithful to His word. He will not let the guilty go unpunished. His judgments are sure, right and just. No one is like the Lord, for His mercies will never fail. His blessings for our lives are provisions for our souls.
In all things, therefore, let us give thanks to the Lord our God; He is good. He will give of what He has and will raise us back to our feet. No matter how painful a trial we face, He will not allow us to stumble.
Give praise to God for He is good. He will rescue us from plague. He will deliver us from disease. He will remove us from the presence of illness. Praise the Lord with a joyful shout. Praise His name in all the world.
Praise the LORD!
Praise the LORD, O my soul!
I will praise the LORD as long as I live;
I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.
Put not your trust in princes,
in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation.
When his breath departs, he returns to the earth;
on that very day his plans perish.
Our happiness is in the Lord. He has saved us from the penalty of sin. He has freely given us life through His son Jesus’ death on the cross. Our life is His and we are His. All glory belongs to God for His love for us lasts forever.
Lift your hands to the Lord our God, for He is good. He is faithful to His promises and will give peace to us in our time of need. He will always draw near to us. He will never forsake us. His love for us will never fail. Praise the Lord always!
Let us pray to the Lord our God for help. He is readily listening for our words. He wants to know us, and He wants us to trust in Him. Through Him, we are safe. Through Him, we will not perish.
Trust in the LORD forever,
for the LORD GOD is an everlasting rock.
For he has humbled
the inhabitants of the height,
the lofty city.
He lays it low, lays it low to the ground,
casts it to the dust.
The foot tramples it,
the feet of the poor,
the steps of the needy.
From the first breath we took, God was there. He watches over us, making sure we will not stumble and fall. His angels surround us, protecting us in all that we do. We should not fear to have God the Father rescue us. He gave His son Jesus so that we might live.
Let us praise God for He is good. He loves us, guides us and takes care of us in our time of need. Let us praise Him for all His generous gifts. He blesses us with peace, gives us security and leads us through trial when we need Him the most.
Let us give of our worship to the great and only God. For whatever we are suffering, He will give us rest. His love for us will never grow cold, for His love never fails. He will always look after us, and He will always be there for us.
