The Scriptures are all powerful in breaking down strongholds, raising up those who are pressed down, and guiding us into experiencing the Lord’s victory over all things. In this segment we set forth a series of subjects with appropriate Scriptures that strengthen faith, and lead to overcoming in the Lord.
Subject areas will be changed regularly, and previous scriptural readings and commentaries may be accessed by clicking different weeks in the calendar below.
Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him; do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass. Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; do not fret ...it only causes harm. Ps 37:7-8.
Resting and waiting on the Lord can be quite difficult when we are feeling stressed. The most positive way to find rest is to enter into the Lords rest. Because He is in us, and we in Him, we can ask Him to be our patience, our quietness, and our rest in Him. A lack of rest may cause us to fret, resulting in all kinds of physical and psychological distress.
The Lord knows the days of the upright, and their inheritance shall be forever. They shall not be ashamed in the evil time, and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.
This is an assurance to the upright in the Lord that their eternal inheritance is kept intact, and furthermore, they will be provided for in times of hardship.
The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, and He delights in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down; for the Lord upholds him with His hand. Ps 37:23-24.
God directs the paths of upright, keeping them in His will. He does not promise freedom from harm, even suggesting that they may have distresses and trouble. But the assurance is that even though they may fall, the Lord will always be there to restore their wellbeing.
