“But the Lord said, “My grace is all you need. Only when you are weak can everything be done completely by my power.” So I will gladly boast about my weaknesses. Then Christ’s power can stay in me.”
2 Corinthians 12:9 ERV
Man this time in my life is creating an even greater need in me to trust God, to depend on him to keep my mind and my heart close to his word.
Death after death is being reported almost to the point where my mind can’t grasp it. It’s starting to feel unreal and I’m becoming unaffected because it’s too much.
Then my good common sense kicks in and the Holy Spirit begins to refresh my mind and send some confirmation that God does not lie. Scripture after scripture to help me
“And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 4:7 NIV
“Praise the Lord! Every day he helps us with the loads we must carry. He is the God who saves us. Selah”
Psalms 68:19 ERV
“Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.”
1 Thessalonians 4:13-17 NIV
“I say this because our hope of being right with God comes through faith. And the Spirit helps us feel sure as we wait for that hope.”
Galatians 5:5 ERV
