Weekly Snippet: 5 Verses to Guide and Encourage

No matter what happened this week, there was probably at least one moment when you needed some encouragement, deliverance, or guidance from God.  If one of those situations is still weighing heavily on you at this moment, I hope you'll take a moment to read each of these verses slowly and carefully, really analyzing what the tell you about God and about the circumstances you are facing.  Each of them has helped me at different times this week, and I hope they will help you, too.  Pray over each one, asking God to help you understand it and apply it to your life.  When you reach the end, I hope you will walk away feeling refreshed and encouraged as we head into the weekend.

  • "Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things" (Philippians 4:8 NIV).
  • "For the word of the Lord is right and true; he is faithful in all he does. The Lord loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love" (Psalm 33: 4, 5 NIV).
  • " Even now my witness is in heaven; my advocate is on high.  My intercessor is my friend as my eyes pour out tears to God; on behalf of a man he pleads with God as one pleads for a friend" (Job 16: 19-21 NIV). 
  • "To those who by persistence in doing good seek glory, honor and immortality, he [God] will give eternal life" (Romans 2: 7 NIV).
  • "For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline" (2 Timothy 1: 7 NIV). 
  • " Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God" (Philippians 4: 6 NIV). 
Be at peace and rest, my friends. Put your life, your future, your plans, and your cares in Jesus' hands, and let Him carry you through anything life puts you through.  Until next time, stay savvy and may God's face shine upon you (Psalm 67: 1-3)!
