A while ago, while I was still a dorm director at Western, I planned a devo that included some scripture that was meant to be encouraging and helpful. At the time I sure was! There was a lot going on back then. When I re-read the blog this morning, It was encouraged again. So, I want to share those passages again as I find myself in need of a fresh look at God’s Promises and LOVE!
Psalm 121: 3-8
“He will not let your foot slip–He who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.
The LORD watches over you–the LORD is your shade at your right hand; the sum will not harm you by day nor the moon by night.
The LORD will keep you from harm–he will watch over your life; the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.”
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.”
Philippians 4: 6-7
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace that transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
1 Peter 5:6- 7
Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.”
I hope you find peace in these words where ever you are today! Have a great week!
