If God has shown us bad times ahead, it's enough for me that He knows about them. That's why He sometimes shows us things, you know - to tell us that this too is in His hands.
There is no panic in Heaven! God has no problems, only plans.
There are no 'if's' in God's world. And no places that are safer than other places. The center of His will is our only safety - let us pray that we may always know it!

Some knowledge is too heavy...you cannot bear it...your Father will carry it until you are able.
Is prayer your steering wheel or your spare tire?
In darkness God's truth shines most clear.
Any concern too small to be turned into a prayer is too small to be made into a burden.
What wings are to a bird, and sails to a ship, so is prayer to the soul.

You can never learn that Christ is all you need, until Christ is all you have.
Hold everything in your hands lightly, otherwise it hurts when God pries your fingers open.
If you look at the world, you'll be distressed. If you look within, you'll be depressed. If you look at God you'll be at rest.
Worrying is carrying tomorrow's load with today's strength- carrying two days at once. It is moving into tomorrow ahead of time. Worrying doesn't empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength.
This is what the past is for! Every experience God gives us, every person He puts in our lives is the perfect preparation for the future that only He can see.
Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.
If the devil cannot make us bad, he will make us busy.

When you are covered by His wings, it can get pretty dark.
No pit is so deep that God is not deeper still

The tree on the mountain takes whatever the weather brings. If it has any choice at all, it is in putting down roots as deeply as possible."---Each New Day
Perhaps only when human effort had done it's best and failed, would God's power alone be free to work.
There are no 'ifs' in God's Kingdom. His timing is perfect. His will is our hiding place. Lord Jesus, keep me in Your will! Don't let me go mad by poking about outside it.
And our wise Father in heaven knows when we're going to need things too. Don't run out ahead of Him.
Today I know that such memories are the key not to the past, but to the future. I know that the experiences of our lives, when we let God use them, become the mysterious and perfect preparation for the work He will give us to do.
When I try, I fail. When I trust, He succeeds.
Love is larger than the walls which shut it in.
Forgiveness is the key that unlocks the door of resentment and the handcuffs of hatred. It is a power that breaks the chains of bitterness and the shackles of selfishness.
