“I am writing to you, little children, because your sins are forgiven for His Name’s sake.” -1 John 2:12
Our forgiveness is based on His Name, not our works.
“Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise Him for the help of His countenance.” -Psalm 42:5
Sometimes we get hopeless because we’re looking for hope in all the wrong places. Hope is only found in Christ. You will never be satisfied until your desire is for God and God alone.
“Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content.” -Philippians 4:11
If you’re discontent now, different circumstances will not solve your discontent but just give you fresh reason to not be content. It’s not your circumstances but your heart that needs to change. Not where you are, but who you are. Not your outside but your inside. -Dane Ortlund via Twitter
In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how He himself said, “It is more blessed to give than to receive.” -Acts 20:35
“Doing good is a fine remedy for fretting. There is a joy in holy activity which drives away the rust of discontent.” Charles H. Spurgeon
