Hope in God // 09-10-18

“Why are you in despair, O my soul? And why have you become restless and disturbed within me? Hope in God and wait expectantly for Him, for I shall again praise Him For the help of His presence.” Psalm 42:5‬ ‭AMP‬‬

I don’t know about you, but I spend far too much time listening to myself rather than listening to God! What I need to do more of, like the psalmist, is not to listen to myself but to talk to myself; tell myself what God says and remind myself who He is. I need to encourage myself in the Lord, rather than let my thoughts discourage me! Lord, help me to look up and look forward with hope today, to set my heart on You and the help of Your presence; to focus my mind on that which is good and worthy of praise! Thank You for the hope I have as I fix my eyes on You, Jesus 🙏🏼
