In The Time of Trouble...

Do not be seized with alarm and struck with fear, little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom!

Luke 12:32 [AMP]

The Bible says that in the days of trouble, men’s hearts will fail them because of fear. But fear is not your heritage. You are called to be a man (or woman) of faith in the MOST HIGH. So, stop focusing on the bad news and proclaim the Good News that Jesus Christ is Lord!

You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours.

Psalm 128:2 [AMP]

A lot of people have become alarmed because their 401k may have lost thousands of dollars. Others because their pay has been cut. Some have experienced all of the above... and more! But fear not, for THE LORD is your God. He will not allow you to be forsaken nor to beg for bread (Psalm 37:24-26).

All the days of the desponding and afflicted are made evil [by anxious thoughts and forebodings], but he who has a glad heart has a continual feast [regardless of circumstances].

Proverbs 15:15 [AMP]

Rather than lose sleep over worry and cogitating over all of the bad news that is broadcast 24 hours a day... spend that time worshipping and praising THE LORD your God. He has already walked out your steps and ordered them (Psalm 37:23).

Show me a sign of [Your evident] goodwill and favor, that those who hate me may see it and be put to shame, because You, Lord, [will show Your approval of me when You] help and comfort me.

Psalm 86:17 [AMP]

There is an old saying that he who laughs last, laughs best. Well... people may be laughing at you now... but don’t be upset over their scorn. THE LORD your God will show you a sign of His evident goodwill and favor. Those who see God’s hand moving on your behalf will have nothing but shame over their despicable behavior... when they see how THE LORD your God helps and comforts you in the times of trouble.

Return to the stronghold [of security and prosperity], you prisoners of hope; even today do I declare that I will restore double your former prosperity to you.

Zechariah 9:12 [AMP]

You may have lost money with the economic downturn... but never lose hope!

The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace.

Numbers 6:24-26 [NIV]

This is a classic Hebrew blessing that you should repeat over yourself, your spouse, your children... all to whom you wish to keep under the loving watch and care of THE LORD your God.

I shall not die but live, and shall declare the works and recount the illustrious acts of the Lord.

Psalm 118:17 [AMP]

Even though satan wants to kill you, he can’t. Permission denied! You have a job to do... you have to tell people of the love of God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So ignore the lies of the devil and continue to live the good life. Or, as Marilyn Hickey says... let the word of God live big on the inside of you!

Behold! I have given you authority and power to trample upon serpents and scorpions, and [physical and mental strength and ability] over all the power that the enemy [possesses]; and nothing shall in any way harm you.

Luke 10:19 [AMP]

You have power over all that satan has in his arsenal. Walk as the mighty man or woman of God that you are and overcome by the Blood of the Lamb and by the word of your testimony. Put the above scriptures in your heart and recite them out of your mouth. You will notice the difference in your life!
