Psalm 55:16 (NLT)
But I will call on God, and the Lord will rescue me.
When was the last time you called on God? Was it when you were in trouble? Or was it when you had a difficult, life-altering decision to make and used Him as a last resort? How long ago? Weeks? Months? Years? Did He answer? Did you receive a solution to your problem or a comfort for your grief or instructions to follow on your decision? Did you continue to call on God after He answered?

Psalm 147:5 (NLT)
How great is our Lord! His power is absolute! His understanding is beyond comprehension!
God knows everything. The depth and length of His knowledge is incomprehensible. His strength and power is evident in the earth and is abundantly majestic. He is aware of everything about His earth and His people even into every detail of our future. He is great and there is no one like Him.

James 4:10 (NLT)
Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up in honor.
Humility is tranquility of spirit, quietness of heart, the deepest honor, and an attainable goal. It is a place of total dependence on and trust in God. We honor God with an attitude of meekness and an understanding that everything we could want or need must come from Him. Humility is an honor for those who embrace it and seek after it because it is where God pulls out His choicest servants. FULL POST

Galatians 5:14 (NLT)
For the whole law can be summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
Learning to love isn’t easy, but it is necessary to learn the lesson of love. Love is the language that all of humanity speaks. We may not be able to understand each other’s language or culture, but there are few people who do not understand love. FULL POST

Matthew 14:30 (NLT)
But when he saw the strong wind and the waves, he was terrified and began to sink. “Save me, Lord!” he shouted.
Oceans (Where Feet May Fail) is one of my favorite songs to listen to. It isn’t just a powerful song, but it’s a brilliant truthful message about trust and faith. When our problems are so enormous and so unfathomably deep, it is a comfort to know that the enormous and unfathomably infinite God is deeper and greater still.

Psalm 139:7 (NLT)
I can never escape from your Spirit! I can never get away from your presence!
You are never alone. This isn’t the tagline to a horror movie or the assurance of an insurance or security company. This is the comfort and the promise of God Almighty. Wherever we go, He is there. Whatever we do, He is there. Nothing and nobody ceases to be under His watchful eye. FULL POST

Ephesians 1:17-18 (NLT)
I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people,
When we think of God, we often connect Him with terms such as faith, hope, love, peace, Heaven, Hell, life, and eternity. Rarely would we put God in the category with imagination, innovation, and creativity. To some, theologians, in particular, God is holy and therefore has nothing to do with human imagination. I’m sure they have their reasoning, but that is not altogether true.
God is not just the God of our souls; He is God of our minds. He cares about our eternal lives and about our lives right now. To think God is only concerned with scriptural principles and theological doctrines is to put Him on a short circuit. God is concerned with such things, but He is just as concerned with how our imagination takes us from glory to glory. FULL POST

Philippians 4:7 (NLT)
Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
Could you use some real peace in your life? We all can. From hectic schedules, chaotic homes, and frenetic workspaces, peace seems like a pin on our radar screen. But it doesn’t have to be. It can be foremost in our lives and can define how we work, relate, and rest.
Regardless of the storms around you, the troubles about you, the chaos in front of you, and the negative feelings within you, Jesus offers peace that overcomes any and every situation. It’s not the pseudo, sitting on an island, yoga posture, soft and slow music kind of peace. This peace only comes when everything is going just right. The peace that Jesus gives is for all times — when everything is good and when everything is totally wrong. FULL POST

1 John 4:16 (NLT)
We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in his love. God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them.
“God is love.” This is a powerful statement of comfort. An affirmation of certainty and sureness. It gives us a firm conviction and confidence that in a cruel and cold world, true love flows from Someone who is perfect and all-knowing not because He is a part of the idea of love, but because He IS love.
Every human being needs to be loved. It is intrinsic to a high quality life that we belong to someone and that we know someone accepts us and cares for us unconditionally. When we lack love in our lives, we resort to dangerous behaviors and develop negative attitudes towards ourselves and others. We not only need to know that somebody loves us, but that we are able to love someone else as well. When we doubt love, we doubt our own worth. FULL POST

Hebrews 2:18 (NLT)
Since he himself has gone through suffering and testing, he is able to help us when we are being tested.
Jesus Christ came to earth in the form of a human so we could reconcile our fears, frustrations, and feelings with Him. Jesus is merciful and faithful to us because He has been through what we’re going through. God ensured that Christ could side with our feelings so we would never have to go through life on our own.
Christ passionately suffered for us, not just in the form of temptation, but in the form of death. Since He has gone through the harshest of punishments for an infinite number of crimes and sins that He did not commit, He is uniquely qualified to help us when we’re being tested and tried, tired and tempted.
