Just a few verses that spoke to me…
Yet I am always with you; you hold me by my right hand. You guide me with your counsel & afterward you will take me into glory. (Psalm 73:23&24)
I love these verses & how the show us God’s love for us & desire for us. We see his initiative to have a relationship with us; he is holding us, he is guiding us & he will take us into glory. We don't have to chase after him & hope he will accept us. He is always with us.
My flesh & heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart & my portion forever. (Psalm 73:26)
Our courage & strength can (& will) fail us, but we can have confidence in God. He is always there.
Then I thought, “To this I will appeal: the years of the right hand of the Most High.” I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago. I will meditate on all your works & consider your mighty deeds. (Psalm 77:10-12)
It's important for us to take time & remember what God has done for us. Remind ourselves of his faithfulness, focus on it & allow it to renew our faith when we falter.
Your ways, O God, are holy. What God is so great as our God? You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples. (Psalm 77:14)
We need to remember God’s faithfulness in our lives & then we can be strengthened in knowing that God is holy & sovereign & has the power to perform miracles.
We have such an awesome God. He doesn't need us, but he wants us. He is with us & will strengthen us. He will show us his faithfulness again & again.
But as for me, it is good to be near God. I have made the Sovereign Lord my refuge; I will tell of all your deeds. (Psalm 73:28)
