“Remember thy word unto thy servant, upon which thou hast caused me to hope.
This is my comfort in my affliction; for thou word hath quickened me (given me life).
The proud have had me greatly in derision; yet have I not declined from thy law. remember thy judgment of old, O Lord, and have comforted myself. Horror (indignation) hath taken hold upon me because of the wicked that forsake thy law.
Thy statutes have been my songs in the house of my pilgrimage.
I have remembered thy name,O Lord, in the night, and have kept thy law.
This had I, because I kept thy precepts.” Psalm 119:49-56 ZAIN
As Jesus had promised us that he would never leave us comfortless but that once we give our lives to Him and trust him as our Savior He is always there, always through the good, the bad, every single day as we go through this life which is full of uncertainties simply because it IS life. The promises that we cling to are promises of the goodness of the next life.
But Jesus wants us to have joy and peace ,and love and rest for our souls as much as possible in this life.
As you go through you day, think of all the wonderful promises and comfort that God has given and that he has promised for the days ahead and let that word be the hand that holds your hand as you walk through these last days in which we find ourselves.
God’s word of prophecy fulfilling all around us and let that word be that voice encouraging you that in it is all going to be alright in the end.
And a scripture we have all used time after time, myself included but one so powerful, so comforting that we need to remind ourselves of it every day.
Romans 8:31: “What shall we then say to these things? IF GOD BE FOR US, WHO CAN BE AGAINST US?”
All these things being, things that come at us, hardship, trials, thirst, hunger, circumstance,grief and not forget the attacks of the enemy and his agents.
These “things” in that verse meaning anything and everything but in all these things HE WILL TAKE CARE OF YOU.
Because as others have said in the past, “We have read the Book, we know we do win in the end”!
