Jesus has overcome...

I have said these things to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” 
~John 16:33

Ah, friends!! I hope you are all doing well...
These have been busy days... and somewhat challenging days for me.

God is showing me the value of moment by moment dependence on Him. Refining me. Causing me to press into Jesus, the sovereign One. What a trustworthy Savior He is! He loves His children more than we can fathom!

When the way seems unclear and anxieties want to thrive, I'm learning that moment by moment, when I turn my eyes on the Lord, peace comes.  Anchoring myself in God's goodness!

He is faithful.

He is all powerful.

He has everything in His hand.

We are not alone...

So I turn and listen to Him...

And His words bring comfort.

“Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!”
~Psalm 46:10

He created *all* things. Every human heart. Everything. It's by His will that they exist and were created. Nothing escapes His notice. 

“Worthy are you, our Lord and God,
    to receive glory and honor and power,
for you created all things,
    and by your will they existed and were created.”
~Revelation 4:11

He is so worthy of our praise! He is working all things for our good and making us more like His Son.

We're more than conquerors through Him! So let's be still and know that in every moment God is working all things His glory!!

When life seems overwhelming may we run to Jesus who has overcome the world!

A quote for the day...

Words of life...

This morning as I read in the Bible I came across these verses in Philippians 4:

" not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.  And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
 verses 6-7

These verses never fail to point me in the right direction! What an amazing promise of peace we have when we earnestly pray and give thanks to the Lord. Giving Him our burdens.

It's so easy to become anxious, isn't it?  But praying shows our dependence on the faithful One ~ Jesus! God's grace is here for each moment...


Do you have any Bible verses you would like to share? Life verses or recent portions that you've come across that have blessed you?
Leave them below in the comment section! I would be encouraged to read them! Thank you! :-)

Keep resting in the Sovereign One, friends!
