Life is not easy. Things do not always go our way. We still have to trust God and pray, praise and seek Him.
Mark 11:22 NLT Then Jesus said to the disciples, “Have faith in God.”
God is always the same. Hold on to His unchanging hand. Have faith in God. There are times when things do not make sense. We have to decide to trust and believe in these times.
Romans 8:28 NLT And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.
God is with us! Believe He is who He says He is. He is in control. He is our heavenly Father. We are not to be afraid.
Jeremiah 17:7 NLT But blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence.
Satan’s greatest weapon is fear. Do not allow fear to rule our lives. We cannot function fully while wallowing in fear. This truth is especially important in todays world.
2 Timothy 1:7 NKJV For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
Fear will blind you to how much God loves you. The next time you have a choice to fear or trust, choose TRUST! Take the time to recite the following scripture believing its truth! Let’s be bold and speak this truth over ourselves, our homes, finances, businesses, and health.
Psalm 27 NLT
1 The Lord is my light and my salvation—so why should I be afraid?
The Lord is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble? 2 When evil people come to devour me, when my enemies and foes attack me, they will stumble and fall. 3 Though a mighty army surrounds me, my heart will not be afraid. Even if I am attacked I will remain confident.
4 The one thing I ask of the Lord—the thing I seek most—is to live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, delighting in the Lord’s perfections and meditating in his Temple. 5 For he will conceal me there when troubles come; he will hide me in his sanctuary. He will place me out of reach on a high rock. 6 Then I will hold my head high above my enemies who surround me. At his sanctuary I will offer sacrifices with shouts of joy, singing and praising the Lord with music. 7 Hear me as I pray, O Lord. Be merciful and answer me! 8 My heart has heard you say, “Come and talk with me.” And my heart responds, “Lord, I am coming.”
9 Do not turn your back on me. Do not reject your servant in anger. You have always been my helper. Don’t leave me now; don’t abandon me, O God of my salvation! 10 Even if my father and mother abandon me, the Lord will hold me close.
11 Teach me how to live, O Lord. Lead me along the right path, for my enemies are waiting for me. 12 Do not let me fall into their hands. For they accuse me of things I’ve never done; with every breath they threaten me with violence. 13 Yet I am confident I will see the Lord’s goodness while I am here in the land of the living. 14 Wait patiently for the Lord. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the Lord.
The Lord is our strength.
Ephesians 6:10 NKJV Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.
Deny fear, stand up and claim the word.
Greater is He who is in me than he who is in the world (1 John 4:4).
Fear not (Isaiah 41:10 and a lot of other places in scripture).
He has plans to prosper and give you health, a future and a hope (Jeremiah 29:11).
God will make a way (Isaiah 43:19).
God is greater than any thing (Psalm 113:4-6).
God is for us ( Romans 8:31).
Emmanuel means God IS with us. If then God is with us, what should we fear? Nothing.

Ephesians 6: Be Strong In The Lord (Motivational)
Pray with me please
You are a good Father. You bless, protect and strengthen Your children. There is nothing that You can’t do. You are above all. There is nothing that is more powerful than You. We worship and praise You for Who You are. Thank You for Your great love for us. Even while we were sinners, Christ died for us. We didn’t have to be perfect first. You loved us even while we were in rebellion against You. Thank You for Your perfect love. Thank You for living inside of us. Thank You for the freedom and power we have in Jesus. Father, help us to know who we are in Christ, that the old man is gone and behold You are making us new. Let us continue to grow in Your word. Strengthen us Lord and open our eyes to where we have let fear take place in our lives. Help us to resist that fear by believing and quoting Your word. We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. Praise Your holy name forever. We love you Father and we pray all this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
We are instructed to bear one another’s burdens, (Galatians 6:2) so if there are any prayer requests feel free to leave them in the comment section. I would be honored to pray with you.
