I am not a careless God. When I allow difficulties to come into your life, I equip you fully to handle them.
For nothing is impossible with God. — Luke 1:37
Do not fear your weakness, for it is the stage on which My power and My glory perform most brilliantly.
Let all who take refuge in you be glad; Let them ever sing for joy. — Psalm 5:11
My power flows most freely into weak ones aware of their need for me.
Faltering steps of dependence are not lack of faith; they are links to My Presence.
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak… They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. — Isaiah 40:29, Isaiah 40:31
If you learn to trust Me — really trust Me — with your whole being, then nothing can separate you from My Peace. Everything you endure can be put to good use by allowing it to train you in trusting Me. This is how you foil the works of evil, growing in grace through the very adversity that was meant to harm you.
Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord, is the Rock eternal. — Isaiah 26:4
Remember that I can fit everything into a pattern for good, including the things you wish were different. Start with where you are at this point in time and space, accepting that this is where I intend you to be.
We are assured and know that… all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good… for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose. — Romans 8:28
My Peace is such an all-encompassing gift that it is independent of all circumstances. Though you lose everything else, if you gain My Peace you are rich indeed.
You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in You. — Isaiah 26:3
