difficulty, remember that God is always with you. He will never abandon you in your time of need.

no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.” Even in life-and-death

loved us.” Speak victory over your circumstances—and truly believe that God has given you
the win.

5. Psalm 119:76. (NIV)- “May your unfailing love be my comfort, according to your promise to
your servant.” God promises to be with us when we need Him most. Your life is in the hands of
the One who is the embodiment of love. Trust Him to sustain you.
