7 Promises God Gives Us for Times of Trouble

7 Promises God Gives Us for Times of Trouble

Is your soul weary today?

When my soul is troubled, I need to stop and hear God's words of love -- rather than distracting myself with doing more and ignoring my heart.

Is your soul feeling weary too -- even though you're getting things done and all looks well on the outside?

We live in a world that is good at problem solving. Have a problem, just Google your question and a slew of search results offer you a different approach. Our world rewards productivity and results. We are so thin on time, we become fearful of wasting whatever slivers of time we have.

We forget that for life is a journey to experience God and not a plan to execute for him. We need to remember the most beautiful things in life, that truly sustain and give us meaning, take time to grow and be nurtured.

Here are 7 promises from God to remember when your soul feels overwhelmed by troubles.

1. I will be your shelter.

He will be your home. No matter where your journey takes you, you belong to Him. "You are my shelter and my shield; I put my hope in Your word." (Psalm 119:114)
