When your soul feels like it’s being tossed to and fro and when problems can make us feel like we’re drowning in this life we can rest assured that God is in control. 2 Peter 1:3 says, “By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life.”
Life in this fallen world breeds painful circumstances, but the Bible provides us with all comfort, direction, and healing. Turning to the truth of God’s word will anchor your heart in your times of great need and troubles.
If your soul is wayward today, I pray the following scriptures will anchor you.
