Repeatedly throughout Scripture, God reminds us of our true identity: who we are and whose we are. It is crucial to hide the Word of God in your heart, so when the lying whispers of the enemy attack, you can refute them with truth. For those days when you need the encouraging reminder, here are just a few of those verses that declare the truth about our identity.
“Would you pray for me?” the young woman asked, head bowed and eyes hidden from my gaze by her long, dark hair. “It would be my honor. How would you like me to pray for you?” I asked as I took her hands in mine, after handing her a tissue to dry her eyes as the cascade of tears began to flow. “I need God to heal me…” her voice barely a whisper now, as the tears caught in her throat.
Focus on the next step. Too often, we look at the mountain before us and that overwhelms us, so we think we can’t do it. Facing an entire mountain is overwhelming, but taking the very next step is not.
Have you ever been surprised and stranded by a sudden change in weather? Sometimes, the battle to get to your destination can be fierce. Have you ever wondered how Jesus was able to sleep through a sudden storm?
Life and circumstances can be hard. Do you ever forget to breathe? Do you have to be reminded to take a breath? In those difficult circumstances, where do you place your focus and find peace?
God’s plans are good. When the path seems long or hard, keep your eyes on God. Nothing takes Him by surprise. You can trust Him and His plans for you.
