Words to Live By in Troubled Times (3)

‘The Word of our God stands forever.’
 Isaiah 40:8 NKJV

Here are some more wonderful promises from the Bible that you can rely on when trouble comes:

(1) ‘Because you have made the Lord… your dwelling place, no evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; for He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.’ (Psalm 91:9–11 NKJV)

(2) ‘The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him, and He delivers them.’ (Psalm 34:7 NIV)

(3) ‘I will take refuge in the shadow of Your wings until the disaster has passed.’ (Psalm 57:1 NIV)

(4) ‘The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.’ (Psalm 34:18 NIV)

(5) ‘The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and His ears are attentive to their prayer.’ 
(1 Peter 3:12 NIV)

(6) ‘He reached down from on high and took hold of me; He drew me out of deep waters. He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me… He rescued me because He delighted in me.’ (Psalm 18:16–19 NIV) 
(7) ‘Do not gloat over me, my enemy! Though I have fallen, I will rise. Though I sit in darkness, the Lord will be my light.’ (Micah 7:8 NIV) (8) ‘You will have courage because you will have hope. You will take your time and rest in safety. You will lie down unafraid, and many will look to you for help.’ (Job 11:18–19 TLB) 
(9) ‘Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us.’ (Ephesians 3:20 NIV)
