Dear Precious Friends,
On this beautiful new day I was pondering what to share for such a time as this. I've had many people reach out to me for prayer for what is happening in our world and for their personal life happenings. We have been discussing all year Psalm 90:12 "Teach us to make the most of our time so that we may grow in wisdom." We know the reason we are here is to Love God and Love Others. What better way to rob us of our purpose than to discourage us.
The enemy wants us be discouraged and live in fear. So when fear comes a knocking on the door we have to stand firm in truth. This comes by spending time with the Lord, knowing His word, praying and worshipping HIm. We then realize God wants us to use the gift of today, the promises God has given us, the fact that we have today and today is potent to the promises of God. Let us see His goodness and celebrate in the land of the living. God's kingdom moves when we claim His promises and trust Him... let us bow before Him and pray Psalm 90!
Let us see your miracles once again and let us see your glory at work. Let's get more bold in our prayer and instead of fear we ask Him for gladness in the places where we see misery.
Today we have access to the word of God... Life is hard, Pray God's promises. Give us gladness in proportion to our former misery. May we live this day on purpose, with beauty and flourishing in mind. Our world needs the gifts God has entrusted to us. Don’t look at this world as a problem to be fixed, but rather, as an opportunity to know, experience, and reflect God to souls that desperately need to know Him. If you wake up and find yourself weighed down by the world and the events that are happening, turn to Psalm 90 and pray the verses.
Here's a list of 5 go-to verses for when you wake up feeling the weight of life’s struggles.
I pray these verses will encourage you and bring you one step closer to relief from your battle wounds, just as they have for me.
1. Lamentations 3:22-23 ESV
“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”
2. Psalm 59:16 NLT
“But as for me, I will sing about your power. Each morning I will sing with joy about your unfailing love. For you have been my refuge, a place of safety when I am in distress.”
3. Isaiah 41:10 NLT
“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.
4. Psalm 30:5 NIV
“For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.”
5. Psalm 90:14 NIV
“Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.”
Now my friends, lets go and and share His love as we claim His promises.
