Where do you find your security? Does it lie in your success? What about your finances? Or are you counting on family? When one of these crumbles, our sense of security is shaken. There is a stronger rock to stand on that will withstand any quake. That firm and tested stone is Jesus. If you get down or depressed because of bad news, your foundation may depend on something other than the hope found in Jesus.
Our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.
~ Phil 3:20
Beyond the bounds of time and space
Look forward to that heavenly place,
The saints’ secure abode;
On faith’s strong eagle pinion rise,
And force your passage to the skies,
Strong in the strength of God.
Proverbs 12:1, 15; Proverbs 13:1
In Jesus’ Name, I Pray God’s Will for You
I pray that you will have a humble heart that listens to advice. May you realize that a wise man seeks advisers, but a foolish man assumes his ways are always right. May you love discipline, for with it comes knowledge. I pray that you will not hate correction, for by it you will gain wisdom. May you heed the instructions of those in authority over you. May you have a teachable heart that never tires of learning.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
One of My names is Wonderful Counselor. I understand you far, far better than you understand yourself. So come to Me with your problems and insecurities, seeking My counsel. In the Light of My loving Presence you can see yourself as you really are: radiantly lovely in My brilliant righteousness. Though My righteousness is perfect, you will continue to struggle with imperfections—yours and others’—as long as you live in this world. Still, your standing with Me is secure. Nothing in all creation can separate you from My Love!
A good counselor helps you recognize truth and live according to it. Actually, I was born and came into the world to testify to the truth. So be open and honest when you bring Me your concerns. Also, fill your mind and heart with My Word, which contains absolute truth.
A wonderful counselor is not only extremely good at helping people but also able to inspire delight or pleasure. Delight yourself in Me, beloved, and I will give you the desires of your heart.
For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; and the government will rest on His shoulders; and His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.
~ Isaiah 9:6 [NASB]
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
~ Romans 8:38–39
Pilate said, “So you are a king?” Jesus responded, “You say I am a king. Actually, I was born and came into the world to testify to the truth. All who love the truth recognize that what I say is true.”
~ John 18:37 [NLT]
Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.
~ Psalm 37:4
