Psalm 94:18-19

Psalm 94:18-19 (NLT)

 18 I cried out, “I am slipping!” but your unfailing love, O Lord, supported me.

 19 When doubts filled my mind your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer.

I cannot think of better words to comfort the soul in times of uncertainty. The world is going through a pandemic and doubts about God’s will, grace, & existence is running rampant. The noise of anxiety is extremely loud in many of our ears.

It can feel like we’re constantly slipping never gaining a strong foothold but the scriptures above give us traction. We can cry out to the Lord! We can let the Lord know exactly how we feel with the expectation that He will help us. Why? Because His love for us is unfailing. That love can never be defeated or trampled upon, disease can’t make it fail, worry can’t make it fail, nor will a pandemic make it fail. We are covered in love and that should be reassuring to many a weary soul.

The comfort we gain from the Lord will renew our hope. That hope is in better days to come because we have strength and grace through our Lord Jesus Christ. He will help us get past difficult times. The slipping will cease as God catches us and places our feet on the solid rock of Jesus.

 Be of good cheer!

6 thoughts on “A WORD FOR THE SOUL

  1. I am struck today by the name of this site: Words That Surround Your Soul. … You might think that it is your spirit-man that needs the ascendancy, not the Soul. … The great Apostle John clears something up for us. III John 2 says “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth”. … We are attacked and afflicted primarily in our minds and emotions, both part of the Soul. Renewing of the mind, by the Word, is how we get over into victory. John indicates that we need to address what goes on in our Souls, in order to turn things around. And he says “above all”. And his declaration is earnest, ‘cos he knows. He’s under the unction of the Holy Spirit, God-breathing His Word at the pen of John, opening up HOW we humans are to function in this earth around all the noise. The noise affects our mind and our emotions. We renew our minds over the noise, so that the Word is louder than the other noise. THEN, and ONLY THEN, does the spirit-man gain the ascendancy, and our souls and our bodies fall in line. This is how it works. Every time. … Thank you, Rhonie, for Words That Surround and Kick-start the Soul, and get us above the fray.
