When you’re surrounded on every side

2 Corinthians 4:8-9 We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.

Promise to Prosper

Psalm 62:6  He only is my rock and my salvation; He is my defense; I shall not be moved.   Often, people think troubles cannot move God’s children. That isn’t so! Troubles can move us.

Don’t Lose Hope

Psalm 31:24  Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart, All you who hope in the Lord.   The famine drove Naomi, her husband and two sons out of Israel in search of greener pastures. It must have been a depressing journey to Moab. Naomi was going empty handed to a foreign land […]

Death is Defeated

Psalm 23:4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.   King Ahab and his evil wife, Jezebel, listened as Elijah prophesied an extreme drought over the land of Israel. After leaving the king’s palace, God commanded […]

God is worthy of praise

Psalm 69:30:  I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving.  (KJV) The psalmist chose to praise the name of God with a song.  The psalmist who was hurt, broken, disappointed ends this psalm by having an assurance in God Almighty.  He never did want to talk about […]
