This past week I have not spent too much time in God's word and I know that the less time I spend in His word, the more frustrated I get, the more people irritate me, the more things annoy me. Having said that, when I have dipped into His Word I have found gems.
Here they are:
Psalm 84 v 10: For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand [anywhere else]; I would rather be a doorkeeper and stand at the threshold in the house of my God than to dwell [at ease] in the tents of wickedness.
This scripture tells me that even if sometimes the grass looks greener on the other side, and sometimes it looks as though the unrighteous prosper, to be with the Lord, walking His way, even though sometimes it looks hard and unfair to us, it is the only place to be in.... His hands, His will!
Isaiah 46 v 4: Even to your old age I am He, and even to to hair white with age will I carry you. I have made, and I will bear; yes, I will carry and will save you.
This scripture tells me that He never changes, He remains the same, no matter where I am in my life, He will carry me and support me and be there for me.
Such great and encouraging scriptures. I feel the need to absorb them into my being. I hope they are an encouragement to you too.
