God will see to it that in the eyes of those who are now your enemy, you will one day be esteemed.  They will respect your stand because you are standing alone, doing what is right.

From Proverbs 16:7:  “When the ways of people please the Lord, He causes even their enemies to be at peace with them.”

With each new dawn there is delivered to your door a fresh, new package called “today.”  All the grace we need will be supplied by Him as we live out that day.

From Psalm 9:10:  “And those who know Your name put their trust in You, for You, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You.”

If the pace and the push, the noise and the crowds are getting to you, it’s time to stop the nonsense and find a place of solace to refresh your spirit.  The good news is God will hear and He will help.

From Psalm 42:1:  “As a deer longs for flowing streams, so my soul longs for you, O God.”

You know the human response to panic?  First, we are afraid.  Second, we run.  Third, we fight.  Fourth, we tell everybody.  God’s counsel is just the opposite.  Don’t be afraid.  Stand still.  Watch Him work.  Keep quiet.  It’s then that He does it.  He takes over!

From Exodus 14:13:  “But Moses said to the people, ‘Do not be afraid, stand firm, and see the deliverance that the Lord will accomplish for you today, for the Egyptians whom you see today you shall never see again.'”

Each of us has some area of pain and suffering in life.  The world around us would have us run from that burden–to resent it, hate it.  Instead, we should embrace it.

From Matthew 10;38-39:  “And whoever does not take up the cross and follow Me is not worthy of Me.  Those who find their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for My sake will find it.”

When you find yourself slumping in shame or giving way to guilt, remind yourself of this:  You have been chosen by the Good Shepherd.  He wants you in His flock.

From John 15:16:  “You did not choose me, but I chose you.  And I appointed you to go and bear fruit, fruit that will last, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask Him in My name.”

We aren’t just thrown on this earth like dice tossed across a table.  We are lovingly placed here for a purpose.

From Ecclesiastes 3:1:  “For everything there is a season and a time for every matter under heaven.”

God has a course mapped out for your life, and all the inadequacies in the world will not change His mind.  He will be with you every step of the way.  And though it may take time, He has a celebration planned for when you cross over the “Red Seas” of your life.

From Philippians 4:4-7:  “Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice.  Let your gentleness be known to everyone.  The Lord is near.  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.”

Rather than live with reluctance, let’s live with exuberance.  Instead of fearing what’s ahead, let’s face it head-on with enthusiasm.  And because life is so terribly short, let’s do everything we can to make it sweet.

From James 4:14-15:  “Yet you do not even know what tomorrow will bring.  What is your life?  For you are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.  Instead you ought to say, ‘If the Lord wishes, we will live and do this or that.'”

God misses nothing.  He’s looking out for us.  He’s listening to our prayers.

From 1 Peter 3:12:  “For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their prayer.”
