People with their minds set on you [God], you keep completely whole, Steady on their feet, because they keep at it and don’t quit. Conquerors will sit alongside me at the head table, just as I, having conquered, took the place of honor at the side of my Father. That’s my gift to the conquerors!
Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns.
Isaiah 26:3 ~ Revelation 3:21 ~ James 1:2 ~ Philippians 4:6
