When you call out to someone to get their attention, but they don’t hear you (or pretend not to hear you), it can be disappointing and/or frustrating. Similarly if you send a text/IM/email to someone, it can also be disappointing and/or frustrating if you receive no response.

I love the Lord, because He hears my voice and my prayers. I will call on Him as long as I live, because He has turned His ear to me. ~ Psalm 116:1-2 (NIV)

God never frustrates us, He is always with us, and always listens when we speak to Him. So call out to God and He will hear you, and will answer your prayers.

Who have you put your trust in?

My hope is in God. He has proved to me over the years that putting my hope in Him is the best thing I could ever have done.

We’re not the only ones who sometimes need to be reminded that we must keep our hope in God…

O Israel, hope in the Lord! For there is loving-kindness with the Lord. With Him we are saved for sure. ~ Psalm 130:7 (New Life Version)

God loves us unconditionally, so why wouldn’t you put all your hope in Him?

When we hope for something, it can be just a pipe-dream, or it can be because it’s something that we truly believe will become reality.

You are my refuge and my shield; I have put my hope in your word. ~ Psalm 119:114 NIV

When we have hope, it makes life easier to cope with doesn’t it.

If it’s God we place our hope and trust in, we will never be disappointed, because He will never let us down, because He loves us and gives us hope for the future.

In Christ alone my hope is found
He is my light, my strength, my song
This Cornerstone, this solid ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
What heights of love, what depths of peace
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease
My Comforter, my All in All
Here in the love of Christ I stand

Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him. ~ Psalm 62:5 (NIV)

There is only one person who can truly give us hope. Hope for today, and hope for the future. God, where all my hope comes from.

The Lord gives strength to his people: the Lord blesses his people with peace. ~ Psalm 29:11

Finding peace in the midst of our busy lives can seem unlikely, but that’s not the kind of peace that the Psalmist refers to in the above verse – This refers to us gaining inner peace from God, so that He can give us the strength and guidance to face our busy and hectic life.

Give God the chance to help you find inner peace today.

Whatever we need, whenever you need it, God will be there when you cry out to Him, when you need help.

God can and will heal all your wounds and take away all your worries.

My God

Sometimes a picture can say more than lots of words

psalm912_my-refuge

 

Yesterday in Quiet Moments I spoke about how we need to spend quiet time with God away from the busyness of everyday life, so that we can simply prayer and read the bible.

However I’m conscious that sometimes it can be incredibly difficult to actually say a prayer, particularly when we’re going through a difficult period in our life. And sometimes, instead of praying all we can do is cry…but that too is ok, because He sees our tears and knows what’s in our heart.

There is a name I call in times of trouble
There is a song that comforts in the night
There is a voice that calms the storm that rages

If our faith in God is not 100%, we can convince ourselves that we can get by on our own. Unfortunately we all need God all the time – during goods days as well as challenging days, so today I simply want to remind you trust Jesus, because He is the answer to all we need.

The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. (Psalm 9:9)
