I Will Not Be Shaken [Short Encouraging Words]

“I have set the LORD always before me. Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.”— Psalm 16:8

When you feel alone, unsteady, frazzled, shaken up, pushed to your limits and even crushed, cling to this promise from Psalm 16:8, as if clinging to God Himself:

“I have set the LORD always before me. Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.”

Now, press on with eyes fixed on Jesus, believing that He loves you, is walking beside you, and working ALL things for your good, and for His glory!

Dear God,

I have no idea what today holds, but I know you are always with me. Therefore I will not be shaken. Amen
