Meditate with Power!


Rest, Trust and Wait on God!


Isaiah 40:30  Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; 31 but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.

Meditate on God’s Word!  God is there, even in the toughest of times. Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. Psalm 23:4 His presence is ever with us and will strengthen us in our time of need.   You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. Psalm 23:5-6

His love is beyond our understanding and description. Even when the nation Israel rebelled His love was constant.   This is what the Lord says: “The people who survive the sword will find favor in the wilderness; I will come to give rest to Israel.”

The Lord appeared to us in the past,[a] saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness. I will build you up again,and you, Virgin Israel, will be rebuilt. Again you will take up your timbrels and go out to dance with the joyful.  Jeremiah 31:2-4

God’s promises are always true!  This is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says: “When I bring them back from captivity,[c] the people in the land of Judah and in its towns will once again use these words: ‘The Lord bless you, you prosperous city, you sacred mountain.’ 24 People will live together in Judah and all its towns—farmers and those who move about with their flocks. 25 I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint.”  Jeremiah 31:23-25  Rest, trust and wait in the promises of God!

God’s Grace!


Psalm 107:21   Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for mankind.

Meditate on God’s Word!   God’s grace is powerful and hears our cries. Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and he brought them out of their distress.29 He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed.30 They were glad when it grew calm, and he guided them to their desired haven. Psalm 107:28-29 

God’s grace can take what was barren and make it fruitful again.  He turned rivers into a desert, flowing springs into thirsty ground,34 and fruitful land into a salt waste, because of the wickedness of those who lived there. 35 He turned the desert into pools of water and the parched ground into flowing springs; 36 there he brought the hungry to live, and they founded a city where they could settle. Psalm 107:33-36


God’s grace called you, saved you and will keep you until the day He calls you home.  For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:8-10 

Let God’s grace carry you today!  Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; 31 but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles;  they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:30-31 Thank God for extending His grace, love and mercy toward us!

God’s Love for Us!


Psalm 103:2   Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits—who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases.

Meditate on God’s Word!   Sometimes in our own personal pain and sorrow we forget that God’s love is constant.   Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever. Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story— those he redeemed from the hand of the foe, those he gathered from the lands, from east and west, from north and south. Psalm 107:1-3 He loves us and is always there even during the storms of life. Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress.He led them by a straight way to a city where they could settle. Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for mankind, for he satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things. Psalm 107:6-9


Even during our times of weakness, God is there, holding us in His hands. Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress.14 He brought them out of darkness, the utter darkness, and broke away their chains. 15 Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for mankind, 16 for he breaks down gates of bronze and cuts through bars of iron.  Psalm 107:13-16


Let His love, mercy and grace carry you today as you wait on Him.  Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress. 20 He sent out his word and healed them; he rescued them from the grave. 21 Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for mankind. Psalm 107:19-21

Let God carry you today!

God is Good!


Psalm 30:4-5  Weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.

Meditate on God’s Word!   God is good all the time, even during your time of recovery, He is there!  “I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten— the great locust and the young locust, the other locusts and the locust swarm,  my great army that I sent among you. 26 You will have plenty to eat, until you are full, and you will praise the name of the Lord your God, who has worked wonders for you; never again will my people be shamed. Joel 2:25-26 His love, mercy and power are without limits.  Praise the Lord, my soul, all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits—who forgives all your sins  and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. Psalm 103:1-4


He understands your pain, sorrow and discouragement and He will restore you. He does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities. 11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him; 12 as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us. 13 As a father has compassion on his children,  so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him; 14 for he knows how we are formed, he remembers that we are dust. Psalm 103:10-14



Wait on His grace to uplift you back to the favor He has and is showing you today through His Word and just praise him today. Praise the Lord, you his angels, you mighty ones who do his bidding, who obey his word. 21 Praise the Lord, all his heavenly hosts, you his servants who do his will. 22 Praise the Lord, all his works everywhere in his dominion. Praise the Lord, my soul. Psalm 103:20-22
