Why are you cast down, O my soul?
And why are you disquieted within me?
HOPE IN GOD, for I shall yet praise Him For the help of His countenance.
The LORD gives us so many reasons to rest and trust in Him:
- He provided salvation for us through the substitutionary death of His precious Son on our specific behalf!
- He lives within our hearts with a readiness to comfort upon any honest request!
- He is performing the holy procedure of sanctification in the lives of other believers around us who are being compelled
to build others (like you and me) up in our faith...just watch and wait for that helping hand!
- He promises us a wonderful heavenly home of perfect peace, and when He makes a promise, He is faithful to keep it!
- He is omniscient...just one of his many glorious attributes...and has seen the end of your life's plan (Romans 8:28),
and as The Great Shepherd of the sheep, is working on a moment by moment basis to lead you to the green
pastures of the knowledge of Jehovah Jireh (God our Provider).
- He loves you unconditionally! Yes, without reservation!
- He is the Mighty God, and at the same time, the Everlasting Father -- the matchless combination of Power and
Compassion -- whatever your prayer, I'm sure, Abba ..."Daddy" (Romans 8:15) can handle it! (Matthew 7:11)
HOPE IN GOD TODAY!!!
