God's Reminders




Me: God, I don't want to do this. 

Jesus: God is at work within you, helping you want to obey him, and then helping you do what he wants. -Philippians 2:13 TLB

Me: Right. But I don't want to do this. I want you to fix it. 

Jesus: Patient endurance is what you need now, so you will continue to do God's will. Then you will receive all that he has promised. -Hebrews 10:36

Me: Right. But why do we have to do this? I don't want to do this. I want you to fix it. 

Jesus: God's ways are as hard to discern as the pathways of the wind, and as mysterious as a tiny baby being formed in a mother's womb. -Ecclesiastes 11:5

Me. Please make me strong. Please let me honor you. Please stay at my side. 

Jesus: Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble at them, for the Lord your God is the one who goes with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. -Deuteronomy 31:6

That your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men but in the power of God. 1 Corinthians 2:5

Out of his glorious, unlimited resources he will give you the mighty inner strengthening of his Holy Spirit. -Ephesians 3:16

Through Christ you have come to trust in God. And because God raised Christ from the dead and gave him great glory, your faith and hope can be placed confidently in God. -1 Peter 1:21

Me: I love you. 

Jesus: We love because he first loved us.-1 John 4:19

God is Bigger than this and Jesus can Fix-It.
