Because God love us, we can trust how He wants to shape our lives.

From Isaiah 45:9:  “Woe to those who strive with their Maker, earthen vessels with the potter!  Does the clay say to the one who fashions it, ‘What are you making’? or ‘Your work has no handles’?”

If we expect God to work according to our timetable, we’re likely to face disappointment.  Ours is a long-term walk of faith.

From Hebrews 11:1-3:  “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.  Indeed, by faith our ancestors received approval.  By faith we understand that the worlds were prepared by the word of God, so that what is seen was made from things that are not visible.”

Jesus promised peace for those who trust in Him, and He delivers on His promises.

From John 16:12-13:  “But to all who received Him, who believed in His name, He gave power to become children of God, who were born, not of blood or of the will of the flesh or of the will of man, but of God.”

The shortest distance between a problem and a solution is the distance between your knees and the floor.

From Luke 22:39-41:  “He came out and went, as was His custom, to the Mount of Olives, and the disciples followed him.  When He reached the place, He said to them, ‘Pray that you may not come into the time of trial.’  Then He withdrew from them about a stone‚Äôs throw, knelt down, and prayed.”

Though our physical body ages, our soul stays young as we continually grow in the Lord.

From Psalm 92:14-15:  “In old age they still produce fruit; they are always green and full of sap, showing that the Lord is upright; He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.”

Every time you see a cross, remember what it really was–an instrument of execution.  Though the scene of your redemption was horrendous, Christ turned the cross into a place of great triumph.

From Colossians 2:13-14:  “And when you were dead in trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you alive together with Him, when He forgave us all our trespasses, erasing the record that stood against us with its legal demands.  He set this aside, nailing it to the cross.”

When God asks us to surrender our will to His, it’s our job to trust He will show us the way.

From Proverbs 3:5-6:  “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own insight.  In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths.”

No matter how many good deeds we’ve done or how many mistakes we’ve made, God’s love for us remains the same.

From Isaiah 49:15-16:  “Can a woman forget her nursing child or show no compassion for the child of her womb?  Even these might forget, yet I will not forget you.  See, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands; your walls are continually before Me.”

No matter what you have or don’t have, true wholeness comes from Jesus alone.

From Philippians 4:6-7:  “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.  And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

When we learn from experience, the scars of sin can lead us to restoration and a renewed intimacy with God.

From Psalm 119:67-68:  “Before I was humbled I went astray, but now I keep Your word.  You are good and do good; teach me Your statutes.”
