You say:  “It’s not worth it.”

You say:  “I’m afraid.”

God says:  “I have not given you a spirit of fear.”  (II Timothy 1:7)

You say:  “I’m always worried and frustrated.”

God says:  “Cast all your cares on me.”  (I Peter 5:7)

You say:  “I don’t have enough faith.”

  1. This was a great idea for a post… awesome!


  2. Excellent Words of faith for encouragement! God bless


  3. It is vitally important to know what God has said. When we run into trials and troubles, we usually say “What am I going to do?” when what we should be saying is “What has God said?” His Word will not return void, so we can count on His truth. Reliance on the Word that God has spoken gives us reassurance and peace that passes all understanding.

  5. God’s word addresses every doubt, every need, every pain and any struggle that the world and Satan throws at us. Thanks for the reminder to always look to God’s word first!


  6. Studies show that when people think of what God would do, they access the same part of their brain used to determine what they, personally, would do. Whereas, when people think of what someone else would do, they use a different part of the brain.
    God is an alias for your conscience.

    I have to reblog this! What wisdom the bible gives us! You can get no better wisdom than from the words found in the Bible. Thank you for this post. Wisdom is better than riches as stated in Proverbs 8:11: For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it.

    Why do people always seem to be negative all the time? They look at their present situation and they only see what is in front of them and it does not look good in their sight. It does not look good because our hearts want the things in life to be good, but because of sin in the world, all we see is bad.
    If we look at things from this narrow point of view, things do indeed look bleak. However, there is one element that we have left out of the equation of life, the Lord God. When we have the Lord in our lives, our field of vision becomes expanded.
    While things look bad, we can still take joy in them because God can make the worse situation into something that would be for our good. When we are alone in this world, the Lord is there to place His mighty hand upon our shoulder and tell us that He is with us and that we are never alone. Let us stop thinking from a human perspective and start looking at life from the Almighty’s point of view and instead of seeing negativity, we will behold opportunities for Divine Glory for our God.
