Encouragement in Christ
"What is God's Word for ME?"
He sent from above, He took me;
He drew me out of many waters.
He delivered me out from my strong enemy,
From those who hated me.
For they were too strong for me.
They confronted me in the day of my calamity,
But the Lord was my support. Psalm 18:16-18
Just recently someone asked me what are my "go to" scriptures in the bible; the verses that really, really encourage and speak to my heart, soul and spirit. Certainly I've got hundreds of scriptures that heal my soul. In fact, there are some scriptures that I think God wrote just forme! There are like wise specific scriptures in the Bible God wants to use to speak right to your own heart; right where you are, specifically for what you are facing. Although I am happy to share my "go to" scriptures, I want to encourage you to read the scriptures for yourself! Don't wait for someone to hand you a book, chapter and verse! You need to search through scripture and let the Holy Spirit quicken your heart to what He wants to say to you!
Spending time in the book of Psalms is so very encouraging during life's difficulties. Don't just read the psalms, but meditate on the words in your heart. Talk with the Lord about what you are reading. Quite often a set of verses will speak to your heart. As time goes on and you look to the Lord and His Word for direction, YOU will have your own set of "go to" verses.
