Find Strength and Comfort in the Word

“Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in Your law. ” Psalms 119:18 Disillusion and dejection are very common today, giving people a melancholy and gloomy outlook on life. In order for you to live and not merely exist, it is essential to have a positive attitude towards life. When everything goes well, enjoy life and praise GOD. But when things do not go that well, you need a strong faith to overcome the stumbling blocks and step out triumphantly. To prevent falling prey to discouragement and pessimism in such times, search the Scriptures for testimony of the...

A prayer in Times of Discouragement

“My soul is weary with sorrow; strengthen me according to Your word. Keep me from deceitful ways; be gracious to me through Your law.” Psalms 119:28-29 To whom do you turn when you feel completely disheartened? Turn to Word of GOD and His commandments. There you will find renewal. Even the psalmist who was weary and “laid low in the dust” (Ps.119:25) found renewal in wanting to know more of GOD and His ways. In the secular and self-assured world, we live in, despair is common. Even when you feel most discouraged, seek God’s help to enable you to fully...

I will Always Have Hope

“As for me, I will always have hope; I will praise You more and more. My mouth will tell of Your righteousness, of Your salvation all day long.” Psalms 71:14-15 What an incredible privilege it is to tell others of the wonderful things that GOD has done for you. Recall GOD’s protection and guidance in your life and tell someone about how He has helped you in the past. Place your trust and hope in GOD. Believe that He will never leave you but will strengthen you and be with you in every time of trial and affliction. Let the...

Light in Times of Darkness

“Even in darkness light dawns for the upright, for the gracious and compassionate and righteous man.” Psalms 112:4 Every believer must accept that there will be times when dark clouds of affliction will cover your path. At first GOD is such glorious reality to you and joy floods your life, but the clouds of despondency will soon appear. When that happens, it is essential to reestablish the truth that GOD is unchanging; His love for you is exactly what it has always been. You may find the darkness hard to accept and GOD may seem far off, but hold on...

A Life Based on Trust

“I have learnt to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty.” Philippians 4:11-12 As a follower of Christ you have powers at your disposal that enable you to tackle life positively and constructively. Remember that dynamic discipleship is based on faith that finds expression in deeds, not in feelings. Focus on the fact that GOD loves you, even though you might be experiencing the darkest time of your life. Acknowledge the fact that He will never leave you, even though you may not be...
