Just as we used the double-edged sword of Scripture to fight fear, we are going to use Scripture to encourage ourselves to trust God. These are some of my favorite verses about trust, worship, rest, and the hope we have in God. Put them up somewhere that you will see them frequently for some Holy Spirit motivation!
Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.”
Philippians 4:4-7 “Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again; Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 4:13 “I can do everything through him who gives me strength.”
Psalm 28:6-7 “Praise be to the Lord, for he has heard my cry for mercy. The Lord is my strength and shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song.”
Psalm 62:1-2 “My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.”
Psalm 95:18-19 “When I said, “My foot is slipping,” your love O Lord, supported me. When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought joy to my soul.”
Matthew 11:28-30 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
Prayer for Today: Father, thank you for Your words of life to us. Help us to use them in a way in which they become a part of our identity, so we can use them to overcome. Thank you for Your great love for us, Your provision for us, and Your victory for us. We love You. Amen!
