Recently, I was a bit discouraged. It was nothing major but I was feeling depressed. It was probably similar to what many have been struggling with.

This went on for a few days and even affected my sleep.

As I woke up one morning and came before God in prayer, I “googled” the words Bible and God’s leading. A slew of verses popped up on my computer screen and I opened one particular list. It was a list of all kinds of bible verses that dealt with the topic of God’s working in our lives. There were over 50 different verses.

I began to meditate on each one.

Throughout the day I read and reread them aloud over and over again.

As I continued to recite these verses, I felt more and more free.

The weight of discouragement lifted. By the end of the day I had a completely different attitude and, praise God, the depression left and never returned.

This world is going through some crazy times. Most of us are feeling our lives shake like never before. There’s uncertainty, fear, confusion and pure chaos.

Many don’t know where to turn, what to think and how to feel.

What we’ve thought as right is now called wrong. What we’ve always considered safe now brings insecurity and fear. What do we do? Who do we trust?

Hebrews 4:12 tells us that “The word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.”

When life is shaking, stand on God’s solid word.

His word never changes because God never changes.

It’s alive because God is alive.

It gives life because Jesus Christ is the way, the truth and the life.

Are you battling fear or discouragement?

Immerse yourself with the word of God.

Speak it into your life. Meditate on it.

It will bring life to your soul.

It will change how you think, how you feel and who you are.

It will set you free.

What if you stood on the never failing promises of God’s living word?

What if you prayed?
