David Jeremiah

Recognize the goodness that God has bestowed on us and acknowledge that He has our best interests in mind. As we walk with God, we come to realize how He uses even difficult situations in our lives to help us grow in our faith and learn to trust in Him. We come to understand why certain doors were opened to us and others were closed. When we can trace this pattern and see that God did all of this for our benefit, we can trust that He will do the same in every situation we face.

Francois Fenelon

What are you afraid of? Let God act. Abandon yourself to Him. You will suffer, but you will suffer with love, peace and consolation. You will fight, but you can carry off the victory, and God Himself, after having fought with you, will crown you with His own hand. You will weep, but your tears will be sweet, and God Himself will come with satisfaction to dry them. You will not be free any longer to give yourself up to your tyrannic passions, but you will sacrifice your liberty freely, and you will enter into a new liberty unknown to the world, in which you will do nothing except for love.

I’ve learned that closed doors are not threats to my destiny. I’ve learned that when someone exits my life, the right person enters it. I’ve learned that people lie. I’ve learned that God keeps his promises. I’ve learned that people will betray you, but God is loyal. I’ve learned that you can be alone while standing in a crowd. I’ve learned not to be concerned with what people think about me because frankly, most people don’t think about me. But God knows my name.

When facing life’s troubles, Paul lists three instructions:

1) Be joyful in hope.
2) Be patient in affliction.
3) Be faithful in prayer.

While counter-intuitive to the natural man, this reaction is natural for the believer. It comes by the incredible privilege of having a daily relationship with Christ. No matter what we are facing, when He is our treasure, we find the grace that is needed bubbling up in our souls. Instead of passive hopelessness, we find ourselves active and secured by an enduring, steadfast, unshakeable, supernatural, blood-bought strength. Instead of retreating, we’re able to pray and release God’s love, power, and answers for ourselves and for those around us.

A. B. Simpson

Fear is born of Satan, and if we would only take time to think a moment we would see that everything Satan says is founded upon a falsehood. He is the father of lies. Even his fears are falsehoods and his terrors ought to serve as encouragements. When Satan tells you, therefore, that some ill is going to come, you may quietly look in his face and tell him he is a liar. Instead of ill, goodness and mercy shall follow you all the days of your life. And then turn to your blessed Lord and say, What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee (Psalm 56:3). Every fear is distrust, and trust is the remedy for fear.
