When times are tough, the Lord is our only security.  

From Matthew 6:25, 31-32:  “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?  Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?’  For it is the gentiles who seek all these things, and indeed your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.”

God has a plan for us, mysterious though it may seem, and we want to be in the center of it.  All the risks notwithstanding, the center of God’s will is still the safest place on earth to be.

From Psalm 130:6:  “My soul waits for the Lord more than those who watch for the morning, more than those who watch for the morning.”

Listen carefully!  Jesus Christ opens the gate, gently looks at you, and says:  “Come to Me, all you who labor and are over burdened, and I will cause you to rest.”  Just come.  His provision is profound, attainable, and right.

From Psalm 32:7:  “You are a hiding place for me; you preserve me from trouble; you surround me with glad cries of deliverance.”

God’s voice isn’t all that difficult to hear.  It’s right there, ink on paper.  Count on it–that book will never lead you astray.

From Psalm 38:15:  “But it is for you, O Lord, that I wait; it is you, O Lord my God, who will answer.”

All whom God uses greatly are first hidden in the secret of His presence, away from the pride of man.

Few acts have a greater impact on those who mistrust us and abuse us than our telling them we forgive them, and we are asking God to forgive them too.

From 1 Peter 4:8:  “Above all, maintain constant love for one another, for love covers a multitude of sins.”

God can use our authority and our abundance and our promotion.  With authority comes the need for accountability.  With popularity comes the need for humility.  With prosperity comes the need for integrity.  

From James 4:10:  “Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will exalt you.”

Make no mistake about it, “He’s got the whole world in His hands.”  In doing so, he weaves everything together into His design.

From Proverbs 16:20:  “Those who are attentive to a matter will prosper, and happy are those who trust in the Lord.”

God has entrusted to us a great deal.  He knows that we can do all things by His grace, so He’s trusting in us to trust Him.

From Psalm 31:7-8:  “I will exult and rejoice in your steadfast love, because you have seen my affliction; you have taken heed of my adversities, and have not delivered me into the hand of the enemy; you have set my feet in a broad place.”
