Dare To Hope

The thought of my suffering and homelessness is bitter beyond words. I will never forget this awful time, as I grieve over my loss. Yet I still dare to hope when I remember this: The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning. I say to myself, “The Lord is my inheritance; therefore, I will hope in him!”  Lam. 3:19-24 (NLT) There are times in our life when we go through seasons of suffering. During these moments, days or years the losses may appear too great and the pain too much to bear. It is in these moments that we must have a “Yet I Still Dare to Hope” praise. When you dare to hope in God, it means that in spite of the pain and difficulty you are enduring, you choose to believe God will deliver you. It’s a personal declaration that no matter what it looks or feels like you will trust God to change your situation for the better. It’s a leap of unshakable faith that cannot be penetrated by your circumstances. Don’t let moments of discouragement cause you to doubt God. Let your downheartedness be greeted by a will that honestly desires to trust God for all things and in every situation. Unwavering confidence in God is the antidote to a disquieted spirit. As you meditate on the verse of the week remember that when you go through difficult times, dare to hope in God. He sees you and His faithfulness continues to flow towards you. May His grace rain down on you and His mercy uplift you in every weary place. Let’s go and grow together. ADaubon

Many are saying of me, “God will not deliver him.” But you, Lord, are a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head high. I call out to the Lord, and he answers me from his holy mountain. Psalm 3:2-4 (NIV) Sometimes when you are going through difficult seasons in your life, there will be many who doubt that God will deliver you. Often it is when your situation is at its worst, others will try to put limitations on what God can do for you because of their limited faith. There are some that genuinely do not desire for your situation to change or get better. When your faith is being tested try to drown out the noise of the naysayers and trust God even more. Don’t let seeds of doubt be planted in your heart and mind from those who do not know what God is about to do in your life. As we focus on the verse of the week, believe that in your challenging times God will cover you in the midst of what you’re going through. He will change your countenance and bring you joy where there is sadness. He will bring you serenity where there is chaos and uneasy feelings. He hears you when you cry out to Him and He is faithful to come to your rescue. Don’t give up now, no matter what anyone says. Believe for yourself that God has not forgotten you and His faithfulness towards you will never cease. God has you and all that concerns you in the palm of His hand. Stay encouraged!

The Lord is a shelter for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. Those who know your name trust in you, for you, O Lord, do not abandon those who search for you. Psalm 9:9-10 (NLT) Have you ever experienced overwhelming excessive burdens in your life? Do you feel like the weight of the world is on your shoulders? Have you ever dealt with afflictions and distress that seemed too much to bear? Today, God reminds us that He is our present help in the times of trouble. Before you give up, try trusting God. When you are at your lowest know that God can meet you right where you are and lift you up to a higher ground. People may abandon you and others may disappoint you, but God will never forsake you. As we meditate on the verse of the week, seek God’s face for every concern in your life. Lay it all before Him and receive strength, rest and peace from on high. God remembers you and He sees all that you are going through. You are not alone and with Him you can make it through anything and everything that comes your way. Hold on, hang in there and don’t give up. God’s got you! Let’s go and grow together. ADaubon

He always stands by his covenant—the commitment he made to a thousand generations. Psalm 105:8 (NLT) God is true to His word, and He remembers what He has declared over your life. While you are waiting on the promises of God, don’t get discouraged when difficult times occur. Though storms may come, and challenges arise trust that God has not forgotten you. What you go through on the way to where you are going only prepares you for your destination. As we meditate on the verse of the week seek God’s face for clarity and comfort as you wait for His covenant promises to manifest in your life. He stands by what He says, so keep the faith and don’t lose hope. He has not forgotten you. Let’s go and grow together. ADaubon

May your unfailing love be my comfort, according to your promise to your servant. Psalm 116:79 (NIV) God’s promise is that He will always be there for us. His love is consistent, nurturing, uplifting and soothing to every aching place in your heart. He’ll encourage you when you’re down. He’ll console you when you’re hurt or grieving. He will give you relief from your burdens and peace in the midst of your storms. He will support you and prop you up on every leaning side. As we meditate on the verse of the week, find comfort in knowing that God has promises of provision for you. He will meet you right where you are. Find rest today from all your worries and concerns.

Prayer Answering God

I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears. Psalm 34:4 (NIV) Seeking God is an act of faith. When we put our trust in God, we must believe that He is faithful to move on our behalf. The Lord sees you and He hears you; He will answer your call. As we meditate on the verse of the week, take all your burdens to God. Give Him your concerns, pain and hurts. He will rescue you and keep you safe. As you depend on Him, all your fears and doubts will have to submit to His authority. God is a prayer answering provider. Pursue Him and He will protect you. Keep the faith and continue to press forward. Let’s go and grow together. ADaubon

Firm Foundation

The Lord makes firm the steps of the one who delights in him; though he may stumble, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with his hand. Psalm 37:22-24 (NIV) When you delight in the way of the Lord, you will follow His lead for your life. God sees your heart and He will prepare the path ahead of you. If you should stumble along the way, God will uphold you and prevent you from falling. If you should get off course, He will lovingly guide you back. As we meditate on the verses of the week, if you feel like you are on unstable ground in any area of your life, ask God if you are walking in His will? When we long for God and truly desire to be in alignment with His purpose for our life, He will keep us on solid ground. He is your support and firm foundation. Be confident in knowing that God’s got you! Let’s go and grow together. ADaubon

But as for me, it is good for me to draw near to God; I have made the Lord God my refuge and placed my trust in Him, That I may tell of all Your works. Psalm 73:28 (Amp.) There are many things and people that would like you to trust in them. Always remember there is no safer place to be than in the arms of God. God is your covering and He will keep you from all harm. God will protect you and shield you from all your enemies. Your season of testing will become your testimony. Have faith in God that He will bring you out, and after you get your deliverance share it with the world. Thank God for what He is doing in your life and praise Him in advance for what He will do in the future. Let’s go and grow together. ADaubon

The Great Protector

If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling,
no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; Psalm 91:9-11 (NIV) God is our protector, but you have to declare it over your life. Believe with your heart and mind and proclaim that the Lord is your refuge. He’s your shelter in the time of storm. He charges His angels to watch over you. Today, serve notice to everything in your life that is attempting to cause you fear and say, the Lord is fighting for me and I shall not be moved, hurt or harmed. Now go forth, with your head high, without fear or trembling and live your best life. You’re covered! Let’s go and grow together. ADaubon
