Yesterday, God allowed me to carry the burdens of my sisters who posted on my blog or who submitted a prayer request to Proverbs 31. The last I heard, we had almost 500 prayer requests submitted yesterday - that is a one-day record for us.
All day as I prayed, I sensed that the Lord wanted to work miracles in many lives. I continually asked Him for that for my sisters in pain. If God worked a miracle in your life, please tell us about it. We will give Him all the glory.
This morning, I spent some time in God's Word, asking Him to show me scriptures that would encourage those who are worried, fearful, anxious and shaken. Below you'll see what He selected. I pray God's Word continues to lift you up in these difficult times. God's not going anywhere, and neither am I.
In His Love,
Deuteronomy 31:6, "Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you."
Romans 8:36-39, "As it is written: 'For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.' No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Mark 6:50-51, “Immediately he spoke to them and said, 'Take courage! It is I. Don't be afraid.' Then he climbed into the boat with them, and the wind died down. They were completely amazed …” (I loved that Jesus climbed in the boat!!!)
Psalm 91 – all of it! http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=psalm%2091&version=NIV
Psalm 25:3, “No one whose hope is in you will ever be put to shame, but they will be put to shame who are treacherous without excuse.”
Psalm 33:20, “We wait in hope for the LORD; he is our help and our shield.”
Psalm 116:7-9, “Be at rest once more, O my soul, for the LORD has been good to you. For you, O LORD, have delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling, that I may walk before the LORD in the land of the living.”
1 Corinthians 2:9, “However, as it is written: "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him.”
Ephesians 3:20, “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.”
We praise you God for what You have done, what You are doing right now that we can't see, and what You will do! We will give you all the glory for Your might acts. Open our eyes to see you at work. Bring Your Holy Spirit to comfort, encourage, strengthen, refresh, give discernment and hope. We can't do it without You. But in You all things are possible. Be our strength today. Be our hope today. In Jesus name, Amen.
