TODAY'S WORD 4U 2DAY
Promises for difficult times (3)‘The word of our God stands forever.’ Isaiah 40:8 NKJV
Here are some more promises from the Bible to encourage us in difficult times: 1) ‘You have made the Lord your defender, the Most High your protector, and so no disaster will strike you, no violence will come near your home. God will put his angels in charge of you to protect you wherever you go’ (Psalm 91:9-11 GNT). 2) ‘The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them’ (Psalm 34:7 NIV). 3) ‘I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings until the disaster has passed’ (Psalm 57:1 NIV). 4) ‘The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit’ (Psalm 34:18 NIV). 5) ‘The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their prayer’ (1 Peter 3:12 NIV). 6) ‘He reached down from on high and took hold of me; he drew me out of deep waters. He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me…he rescued me because he delighted in me’ (Psalm 18:16-19 NIV). 7) ‘Do not gloat over me, my enemy! Though I have fallen, I will rise. Though I sit in darkness, the LORD will be my light’ (Micah 7:8 NIV). 8) ‘Having hope will give you courage. You will be protected and will rest in safety. You will lie down unafraid, and many will look to you for help’ (Job 11:18-19 NLT). 9) ‘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’ (Ephesians 3:20 NIV).
Over the last three days, we’ve read 25 promises. Now let’s share them with others. Write down each one separately, then give them out to people at church, friends, or people you work with. (It might even help you start a conversation about God with your non-Christian friends).
