In Christ we are given so many freedoms — freedom from law, sin, death, etc. But one of the greatest freedoms we have is to boldly come before the Creator of the universe, the God of all time and creation, and speak openly and confidently with him. Incredibly, we mortals can enter God's world with our problems and be confident that he hears us and cares about our concerns. Almighty and most holy God, I know that without your grace and attentive care my requests to you would go unheeded. But I also am confident that because I am your child, my requests matter to you. Thank you for hearing my prayers each day.
Thank you for caring about my concerns. Thank you for being patient with my impatience and tender with my frustrations. A week or so ago I put together a massive post with well over a hundred bible verses about money and talked about how we need to make sure that we always put God first in our lives before money — and everything else. No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other.
You cannot serve God and money. Matthew One thing that occurred to me in the midst of listing all those verses, however, is that I never really touched on a topic that seems to be especially important right now in the midst of a double dip recession when so many people are having a hard time. The idea of looking to God for strength in the midst of hard times.
Today I decided to bring together some encouraging and challenging verses talking about how and where we need to find strength in the midst of turbulent times. I hope you find them uplifting as well. Psalm God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.
Proverbs The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run into it and are safe. Isaiah So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Exodus The Lord is my strength and my song; he has given me victory. Psalm The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. Isaiah Those of steadfast mind you keep in peace—because they trust in you. Trust in the Lord forever, for in the Lord God you have an everlasting rock.
Psalm You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance. Deuteronomy It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed. Deuteronomy The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms. Psalm When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears, and rescues them from all their troubles. Isaiah In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength. It can be so easy to give into worry, fear and despair, but with Him we can find strength, and look forward to wonderful things.
He gives us hope! Isaiah Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.
Luke Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life[a]? Philippians Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

When the wicked advance against me to devour me,it is my enemies and my foes who will stumble and fall.
Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear;though war break out against me,even then I will be confident. Joshua Be strong and courageous; do not be frightened or dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. Psalm The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.
He fulfills the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cry and saves them. Isaiah Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid. The Lord, the Lord, is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation.

Through faith in Christ we are given a spirit of power, love and discipline, and for that reason we have nothing to fear. Psalm When I called, you answered me; you made me bold and stouthearted. Psalm I have set the Lord always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken. Psalm 1, Praise the Lord! Happy are those who fear the Lord. They are not afraid of evil tidings; their hearts are firm, secure in the Lord. Their hearts are steady, they will not be afraid. Philippians 4: I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation.
1 John 5:15
I can do everything through him who gives me strength. Hebrews For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who in every respect has been tested as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore approach the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Deuteronomy ,8 Be strong and bold; have no fear or dread of them, because it is the Lord your God who goes before you.

50 Bible Verses about the Word of God - ynykyvykeb.tk
I am rejoicing with you! Good words Peter, I always love reading your blog. I am 51 years old. I am in the age range where I spend significant time thinking and reading about and planning for retirement. I would like to write a blog about retirement and even that is a very broad subject when you stop to think that it affects every area of life.
But, sometimes I think that there are already too many blogs already. What do you think? Thank you so much sharing your wisdom of the scriptures, this is one I live by: I hope you will consider adding it to you list. But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches and glory by Christ Jesus Philippians Many a times we may think we are left alone to live on our own but the fact is that the more we feel the pain and agony in our lives..
This is a great list. Thanks for sharing it. Personally this is my favorite verse when I need to find strength. For when I am weak, then I am strong. Thanks so much for the list! Very timely. So much to be thankful for but sometimes life gets us down. Hopefully this will give hope to those of us to need a lift! Psalms 91 helps me through also. Thank you for the following scriptures that helps to strength my Faith.
Many more blessings! Jesus I trust in you. This says a strong profession in faith. I find it hard to memorize scripture when in trouble. I have been through series of turbulent times and what keeps me going are wholesome stories in the bible demonstrating God at work. Christians need to visualize the personality of God in situations. Although I love the verses and I feel like printing them off for display at the dressing mirror.
I will be bookmarking as well, i currently going through a tough time the past three month from accident, transmission went out, another accident, and IRS. I am trying not to have a break down but keeping myself being positive without thinking negative on why i am going through this storm. This is helping me out alot thank you. I feel your pain Annette. Having a savior that we can rely on really helps to weather the storm — or storms — as the case may be.
The Lord always.. His word says he will never leave us or forsake us. Asking why is self defeating, know that He always take care of us and after having these trials and tribulations, and believe me I have gone through them also, He rewards us so much in the end. Thanks Pat. Romans —31 "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to His purpose. For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.
And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified. What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? Proverbs "Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. Psalm "The Lord has done it this very day; let us rejoice today and be glad. Ephesians —32 "Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of evil behavior.
Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you. John "I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart.
