Do Not Despair ( by Fenny West)

Do Not Despair

 back on the ground when you are down to nothing the Bigger crdaniel shalom praise in the storm

Do not despair

It cannot repair

It will further tear

Know that God cares.

 

 

Do not despair

Rather be inspired

Know that God is near

And that He’s fair.

 

Do not despair

Courage take

Comfort take

Prayer, pray.

 

Do not despair

The Lord will help

His presence will help

Make a difference.

 

Do not despair

Receive His calm

Despite the storm

Receive His peace.

Comfort in Suffering

3     Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort,

4     who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.

2Cor2:3-4

Cast Down but Unconquered

7     But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.

8     We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;

9     persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed —

10   always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body.2Cor4.7-10

God’s Everlasting Love

31   What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

32   He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?

33   Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies.

34   Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.

35   Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 37          Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.

38   For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come,

39   nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Rom8:31-35,37-39

 

Seeing the Invisible

16   Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day.

17   For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory,

18   while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.2Cor4:16-18
