It is no secret that life can be rough. When our life seems out of control, that is a good time to remind ourselves that God is in control. Whatever you face, amidst the struggles and anxious thoughts and worries of life, God is there strengthening us and helping us. Here are 8 verses that remind us that God is in control.

  4. “Tell everyone who is discouraged, Be strong and don’t be afraid! God is coming to your rescue…” Isaiah 35:4
  5. “The Lord is my light and my salvation—whom shall I fear?  The Lord is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid?” Psalm 27:1

He knows what concerns you, and He’s got you covered.
