Who need

Encouragement from God

Inspired by the 46th Psalm

Dear Lord,

I need you.

I am desperate for your help.

I am desperate for your wisdom.

I am desperate for your miracles.

Calm me.

Soothe me.

Refocus me.

I will listen to you.

I will remember that you said, "Be still and know that I am God."

As I read your words, I will allow you to calm me.

I will remember that -

I am not desperate - I just feel desperate.

I will put on the belt of truth. I will speak truth.

And the truth I will speak is:

I am not desperate; I am safe in the arms of my God.

I am surrounded with God's love.

I am a much - loved child of the King of all Creation.

God is comforting me.

God is covering me.

God is leading me.

Today, I will focus on the love and all-sufficiency of you -
my Heavenly Father.

Change the "am" to "feel" in the first few lines.

So it would be:  I feel desperate for your help. I feel desperate for your wisdom. I feel desperate for your miracles.

Psalm 46 is a Psalm

about going through difficulty

while holding onto God.

Below is a news story

from January 2017

about a Bible

that weathered the storm.

The World

may fall apart.

My Life

may seem to fall apart.

But no matter what happens,

I will remember God's words:

"Be still and Know that I am God."

Years ago
during a difficult time,
I found Psalm 46 in the Living Bible.


As I read Psalm 46
in that translation
it brought me great comfort.

Its plain - spokenness
  connected to my heart.


I am going to write it out below,
hoping that it blesses you.

Psalm 46
The Living Bible

God is our refuge and strength,
a tested help in times of trouble.

2 And so we need not fear even if the world blows up and the mountains crumble into the sea.

3 Let the oceans roar and foam;
let the mountains tremble!

4 There is a river of joy
flowing through the city of our God—
the sacred home of the God above all gods.

5 God himself is living in that city; therefore it stands unmoved despite the turmoil everywhere.
He will not delay his help.

6 The nations rant and rave in anger—
but when God speaks,
the earth melts in submission and
kingdoms totter into ruin.

7 The Commander of the armies of heaven
is here among us.
He, the God of Jacob, has come to rescue us.

8 Come, see the glorious things that our God does, how he brings ruin upon the world

9 and causes wars to end throughout the earth, breaking and burning every weapon.

10 “Stand silent! Know that I am God!
I will be honored by every nation in the world!”

11 The Commander of the heavenly armies
is here among us!
He, the God of Jacob, has come to rescue us!

Note that our
Shoes of Peace page gives a short devotional
on the Psalm 46 verse:

"Be still and know
that I am God."

Verses to use to call out to God

Out of the depths have I cried unto thee, O Lord.

Lord, hear my voice:

let thine ears be attentive

to the voice of my supplications.

Psalm 130:1-2 KJV

Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer.

From the ends of the earth will I cry unto thee,

when my heart is overwhelmed:

lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

Whispers of Love

from my Father God

Psalm 46 KJV

1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

2 Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;

3 Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.

4 There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.

5 God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early.

6 The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted.

7 The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.

8 Come, behold the works of the Lord, what desolations he hath made in the earth.

9 He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire.

10 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.

11 The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.
