14 Verses To Help You Focus On Who God Is

A great way to start and end your day is to simply think about who God is. Here are 14 verses to remind you of a few of God's character traits. Read these aloud and remember who He is! 1 Corinthians 10:13 | God is FAITHFUL No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. 1 John 1:5 | God is LIGHT This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. John 3:16 | God is GENEROUS For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. 1 John 4:8 | God is LOVE Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.

5 Verses For Uncertain Times

Whether or not life is uncertain is simply a matter of perspective. While I may feel uncertain about what is coming next, God does not. He is certain and He is not worried. When you were a child riding in the back seat of the car, there were many times you didn't know where you were going. Your parent(s) did, though. Most of the time, it didn't even cross your mind to be nervous about your uncertainty, because you trusted the driver's knowledge and ability to deliver you to the destination. God's knowledge and ability are far superior to the driver of that car. He is not uncertain. Not only does He hold tomorrow, He knows what tomorrow holds.  Here are five verses to read aloud when you feel some of life's uncertainty creeping in. Matthew 6:26 "Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?" Proverbs 3: 5 -6 "Trust in the LORD w

7 Verses For The Moments You Feel Alone

You can get through this! Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through him who strengthens me. Use your times of solitude to draw closer to God. Luke 5:16 But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. God is with you. He is in control. Isaiah 41:10 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.  Jesus knows exactly how you feel. 1 Corinthians 10:13 No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. Even if everyone abandons you, Jesus never will. Proverbs 18:24 One who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. Don't be afraid to tell God how you feel. 1 Peter 5:7 Cast all your anxieties on him, because he cares for y

12 Verses For a Rough Day

I received an email today from a friend requesting a few encouraging verses. I shared a couple with her and then thought perhaps I should just post them here as well. Maybe these will be an encouragement to you as well. We can all use a little more hope, joy, and peace. John 16:33 -- I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” Isaiah 26:3 -- You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you. 1 Peter 5:7 -- Casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. Psalm 4:8 -- In peace I will both lie down and sleep; for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety. 1 Peter 1:3 -- Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, John 16:22 -- So also you have sorrow now, but I will see you
