In our walk with God, us Christians live complex lives. We have successes and failures, we feel all sort of emotions and we have to face various obstacles. In this article, I want to share with you a list of ten fragments from Scripture that will come in handy in various situations.
If you are worrying, read Matthew 6:19-34. Remember: God takes care of everything when you put your faith in Him. Besides, as Jesus points out, worrying doesn’t prolong anyone’s life.
If you are lonely or fearful, read Psalm 23. Remember: When The Lord is your shepherd, you lack nothing and should fear nothing. Trust in His goodness and His love, which follow His children forever.
If you are in sorrow, read John 14:1-6. Remember: Jesus is The Way, The Truth and The Life. You shouldn’t let your hearts be troubled if you trust that Jesus will show you the way to Paradise (His Father’s house).
If you are grateful, read Psalm 103. Remember to praise God for all He has done, is doing and will do for you. King David gave us great examples of how to praise The Lord in prayer.
If you are disappointed with other people, read Psalm 27. Remember: Seek The Lord, seek His Name, seek His Face, seek His beauty, and He will grant you confidence and help you face whatever enemies may come against you.
If God seems far away, read Psalm 139. Remember: God is everywhere and, even though we might not feel His presence sometimes, He is close. Like the psalmist, we should marvel at the omnipresence of God even in the most secret of places, and praise God for His vast knowledge of the future.
If you need courage, read Joshua 1. Remember: Joshua needed courage when he was installed leader, after Moses’ death. When we feel scared or uncertain about whether we can overcome certain challenges, we should read the words of encouragement that God gave to Joshua.
If you are in danger, read Psalm 91. Remember: God will deliver you from any troubles if you put your faith in Him. Psalm 91 is a reminder of the fact that God always helps those who obey Him and seek Him.
If you have sinned, read Psalm 51. Remember: it is important to confess our sins to God and to ask for His forgiveness. We should also ask Him to change our hearts and our souls according to His Will.
If you want to be more like Jesus, read John 15. Remember: it is important to be in Him in order to bear fruit. This chapter will also teach you about how to face the adversities of the world.
