VerseD: Psalm 19:1

The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.

There is no reason to not believe in God. Creation itself points to a Creator.

The wise will find their way, also, to the Son of God.

VerseD: Exodus 14:14

“The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.”

We can learn from Israel escaping Egypt that God will defeat our enemies, and in fact He has. Primarily, He has defeated Satan and death, who will be destroyed after Christ’s return.

VerseD: Matthew 6:33

But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
Matthew 6:33, ESV

We have no guarantee we will get everything we need in this life. Jesus promises us that if we seek His righteousness (realize the truth of Christ and obey Him), our ultimate needs are met, i.e. forgiveness of sin and eternal life.

But God also likes taking care of us in this life!

VerseD: Proverbs 2:8

It can be hard to NOT worry in life. However, if we continuously draw near God through prayer and thank Him for everything in life – even the hard stuff – we will find His strength keeping us afloat and beyond worry.

VerseD: Colossians 3:13

bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.
Colossians 3:13, ESV

We are family by Christ’s blood. Sometimes family gets annoying and offend each other.

Get over yourself and love them fiercely. You may even be the offensive one!

VerseD: John 14:27

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.
John 14:27, ESV

When anxiety and fear start to weigh you down – the moment they hit your mind and heart – turn to Jesus. His Holy Spirit will guide you into the Father’s strong, loving arms and whisper “I have it under control. Trust Me.”
