Psalm

The good things in life


God defines life’s good things quite differently than we do, and they’re achieved only by seeking Him. When we make the Lord our top priority, He gives truly good things, such as intimacy with Him, satisfaction, joy, and divine help.

Hearing Your God

Without God’s Word, we would know very little about Him and nothing about redemption. So never take your Bible for granted. Each time you open it, you are hearing God’s voice speaking directly to you. Take advantage of this privilege and read it regularly.

Your Guide

Who is your guide? Are you following celebrities or news reporters? Are you trusting in politicians or business leaders? If you’ve placed your absolute faith in anyone or anything other than your Heavenly Father, you’re already off course. He is our one trustworthy Guide. Seek Him.

The Nature of Discouragement

Understand that discouragement: Is something we can choose; is universal; can recur; is conquerable.

While it’s a natural response to difficult circumstances, we have the power to choose a different response. No one else is responsible for our discouragement.

If we trust in the Lord’s promises and His character, our feelings of discouragement will slowly be replaced by hope.
