“Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.” 1 Peter 5 6-7
Accept each day just as it comes to you, remembering that I am sovereign over your life. Rejoice in this day that I have made, trusting that I am abundantly present in it. Instead of regretting or resenting the way things are, thank Me in all circumstances. Trust me and don’t be fearful; thank Me and rest in My sovereignty. -Sarah Young, Jesus Calling
“The Lord is my strength and song,
And He has become my salvation.” Psalm 118:14
Today’s devotional in Streams in the Desert is encouragement for the believer in times of darkness (click to read). If you feel like you’re groping your way in darkness I encourage you to read the whole passage. “The first thing to do is nothing. When you’re rattled, don’t rush. When you don’t know what to do, don’t do it. While we trust, God can work. The peace of God must quiet our minds and rest our hearts.”
If you desire God’s best in your life and want to make your life count, then you can expect to travel the road of adversity. -Walking with God, Life Principle #7
God is the Light, bringing peace to quiet our minds and rest our hearts, taking all of our anxiety. He is my strength and song- He is the corner stone.
“The stone which the builders rejected
Has become the chief corner stone.
This is the Lord’s doing;
It is marvelous in our eyes.” Psalm 118:22
