VerseD: Psalm 59:16

But I will sing of your strength; I will sing aloud of your steadfast love in the morning. For you have been to me a fortress and a refuge in the day of my distress.
Psalm 59:16, ESV

Do you praise God daily for what He has done, is doing, and will do? Do you have a song on your lips every morning praising God’s holy name?

Do it. He is worthy (and it makes your day at least a little better.)

2 Corinthians 4:18

as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.
2 Corinthians 4:18, ESV

It is easy to get focused on the things of this world, but we are to look to the Kingdom of God. It is mostly insubstantial until Christ returns. Trust His promises that His Kingdom is growing and that He is coming again.

VerseD: Hosea 6:6

For I desire steadfast love and not sacrifice, the knowledge of God rather than burnt offerings.
Hosea 6:6, ESV

The Lord is looking for faithful servants and sons (and daughters!), those who sacrifice of themselves for the sake of Christ through whom we find our adoption – not merely giving out of their abundance, who give out of love, not obligation.

VerseD: 2 Thessalonians 3:3

But the Lord is faithful. He will establish you and guard you against the evil one.
2 Thessalonians 3:3, ESV

Christ’s faithfulness and strength is what sustains and empowers us by the Holy Spirit to the glory of the Father. Trust in Him, not your own ability to be faithful. (But endeavor to be faithful!)

VerseD: 1 John 1:9

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
1 John 1:9, ESV

There is no forgiveness without confession and repentance.

Give your sin to God, and find peace.

If it helps, tell a trusted Christian brother or sister.

VerseD: Psalm 55:22

Cast your burden on the Lord , and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved.
Psalm 55:22, ESV

God will help you believe and remain faithful.

Ultimately, He will bring you to His side, beside the immovable, immutable One.

Because of Christ.

VerseD: Genesis 15:6

And he believed the Lord , and he counted it to him as righteousness.
Genesis 15:6, ESV

The most important thing the Lord requires of us is faith and obedience. Without faith, we cannot be fully obedient. Without obedience, we show our lack of faith.
