When I am afraid,I will put my trust and faith in You. In God, whose word I praise;In God I have put my trust; I shall not fear. Psalms 56: 3-4 Holy Bible Amplified Version
We all encounter trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares.
I have experienced such intense tribulation it was difficult sleeping, eating and functioning in society. Nothing helped me, not words from friends or councilors, nor self help books. It was only when I got down on my knees and in deep anguish cried out to Jehovah that He blessed me with an all encompassing love which strengthened me and stilled my heart with peace. The fear slowly ebbed away like darkness with the rising sun. There was no fear just peace and assurance of Jehovahs firm but gentle hand upon my life. I trusted Him and had faith in Him. He did not let me down, He never does. He filled me with confidence and an eagerness to attack and destroy the troubles. This process has been repeated every time trial and tribulation, sorrow and snares come my way.
When trouble comes my way I get down on my knees and pray. Joseph- Anthony; Green
Christian, no matter what you are enduring now get down on your knees and pray with all your heart. Jehovah loves you, He cares about you and longs to comfort you, fill you with peace, love, strength and confidence. But, first, you must ask for His divine intervention and then be obedient unto His counsel if you are to experience assured victory.
Prayer helps us to respond to misfortune with courage, to react with confidence and to rebound with enthusiasm. –William Arthur Ward
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) that You are always there, that You always care, that You bless me with strength, wisdom, peace, assurance and love whenever trouble great and small come crushing down upon me. I exalt The in the name of He who calmed the violent storm for His loved disciples Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.
