Encouraging Moments, 8
Today so many people are discouraged and feel helpless because of the state of our economy. All over the world there are famines and drought, a lack of food and water. But God sees all and knows all and He is in control of all things. Here are a few Scriptures to encourage you.
“But even the hairs of your head are all counted. Do not fear; you are more valuable than a great number of sparrows.” Luke 12:7
“Consider the ravens, that they neither sow nor reap; they have no storeroom nor barn, and yet God feeds them; how much more valuable you are than the birds!” Luke 12:24
“He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things?” Romans 8:32
“ My God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Messiah Yeshua.” Philippians 4:19
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” Philippians 4:6
“Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Messiah Yeshua to all generations forever and ever. Amen.”
Our life is but a thread— a thread held together by FAITH:
faith in the Lord that He will see us through our strife and pain.
Our life is but a thread— a thread held together by TRUST:
trust in the Lord that He will take care of our needs.
Our life is but a thread— a thread held together by HOPE:
hope in the Lord that He will always be with us.
Father, we pray for those who are in need. You see that the cost of everything is rising today, food, rent, fuel, everything. We ask that you meet people’s needs, and give them a financial blessing in their lives, and Father, we also ask for those who have no one they can call a friend to talk to, send them a friend today, and Father don’t forget those who are in need of shelter. We know that you are our Shelter, but today make a way for them to have a permanent place they can call home. We thank you Father, as Psalm 73:26 says “My flesh and my heart may fail, But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.”
