Trust in the Lord~Your Refuge, Your Strength

worry stone

But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God;
I trust in God’s unfailing love for ever and ever.
~ Psalm 52:8

He only is my rock and my salvation, My stronghold;
I shall not be shaken. In God my salvation and my glory rest;
The rock of my strength, my refuge is in God.
Trust in Him at all times, O people;
Pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us. Selah.
~ Psalm 62:6-8

Trust in the LORD with all your heart
And do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He will make your paths straight.
~ Proverbs 3:5-6

Go With God

Trust in the Lord
Accept His promises
Head His word
Acknowledge His ways
Embrace God’s blessings
Know that He is God
Rest in His love unending
Practice grace and mercy

Depending on God *Jesus Calling

The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms.
He will drive out your enemies before you, saying, ‘Destroy them!’
~ Deuteronomy 33:27

For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels,
nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers,
nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing,
will be able to separate us from the love of God,
which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
~ Romans 8:38-39

My daily devotional today was inspiring, so I figured I would share the blessing!

From Jesus Calling: Enjoying Peace in His Presence

January 21
I WANT YOU TO BE ALL MINE. I am weaning you from other dependencies. Your security rests in Me alone–not in other people, not in circumstances. Depending only on Me may feel like walking on a tightrope, but there is a safety net underneath: the everlasting arms. So don’t be afraid of falling. Instead, look ahead to Me. I am always before you, beckoning you on–one step at a time. Neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, can separate you from My loving presence.

In God’s Hands!

The gracious hand of our God is on everyone who looks to him,
but his grate anger is against all who forsake him.
Ezra 8:22b

We serve an awesome God! He is always there to guide and protect, to keep you in His refuge, and to graciously supply all your needs!

There are numerous verses in scripture that refer to God’s hand being upon you, and as I read the book of Ezra, I found six verses about God’s gracious hand being upon them (and there are only 10 chapters!).

When you trust in God and call upon His name, you can fully trust that he is with you! It is His hand alone that leads you out of trouble and into safety. It is His hand alone that protects you from the enemy, from the principalities of darkness! It is by His hand that you have courage to stand on the Word of God and speak it into the lives of others. It is by the Lord’s hand that you are provided wisdom. All this just in Ezra…10 small chapters, with so many reminders that God has you! Imagine if you did a study on “the gracious hand of God”, how inspiring that would be! Hmmm….I think that may be my next writing!

Blessings to each of you and may you feel the hand of God moving in your life!
In God’s love ❤

Shadow of His Wing

Keep me as the apple of your eye,
keep me in the shadow of your wings.
~ Psalm 17:8

Shadow of His Wing–A Psalm

The LORD is my refuge and strength
My God in whom I trust
I will dwell in the shelter of the Most High
Resting in the shadow of the Almighty
He will cover me with his feathers
Under His wings I will find refuge
His faithfulness will be my shield
He will command His angels to guard me in all my ways
They will lift me up in their hands
I will call upon the LORD and He will answer
he will be with me in times of trouble
He will deliver me and honor me
God will bring me salvation
Amen!

The Storm

The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer;
my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge,
my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
~ Psalm 18:2 ~

The Storm

Grey clouds hover
Blocking the sunlight
Storms on the horizon
Flooding the soul

Winds blow wildly
Tossing me to and fro
Holding tight to God
I will never let go

Lightening crashes
Blinding the heart
Causing confusion
So easily I fall apart

The thunder resounds
Bringing heartbreak and pain
But this to will pass
For God will break the chain

Clouds will clear
Winds will fade
Within this storm
I will not be afraid

For God is near
He holds me in his hands
Peace will come
For in Him I stand

Psalm 41:1-4

Hear my cry, O God;
listen to my prayer.
From the ends of the earth I call to you,
I call as y heart grows faint;
lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
For you have been my refuge,
a strong tower against the foe.
I long to dwell in your tent forever
and take refuge in the shelter of your wings.
Psalm 41:1-4
