Daily Bible Verse and Devotion – 1 Samuel 15:29

“And He who is the Glory of Israel will not lie, nor will He change His mind, for He is not human that He should change His mind. ” – 1 Samuel 15:29 (NLT)

Have you run into some people that were unfaithful? Maybe you have some friends at school that suddenly decide they don’t like you because of what you wore today to school. It’s hard to know how to handle the difficult people that we face at school and on our jobs.

The good news is that regardless of how other people treat us, that’s nothing like how God is. He’s not like the people you know who say they’re going to do something and then forget. God is refreshingly different. This Bible verse says that He won’t lie and won’t change His mind.

Sometimes it can be hard to put your trust in God because we expect Him to be like all the other people in our lives who sometimes let us down. We know people that say one thing but mean another, or don’t follow through with their promises. However, that is the opposite of how God is.

God always comes through. He never gives up on us and He doesn’t lie or change His mind. God is the one constant in your life that you can always count on. Be encouraged today that you can trust in God’s faithfulness.

Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand. – Isaiah 41:10

It’s hard to stay encouraged when it feels like nothing in your life is going right. Maybe you’ve been praying about something and you don’t feel you have the answer. Perhaps you’ve been doing the right thing and it feels like no one ever notices.

It’s hard in the tough situations to not get discouraged. One of the best ways to stay encouraged is to remind yourself of God’s goodness.

You might listen to a favorite song that reminds you of God’s goodness. You might spend a few minutes praying or being quiet and remembering the goodness of God. Whatever works for you, remember that God will never leave you or let you down. So even when things get really tough and you want to give up, know that you can make it. You’re not alone and God will be there to strengthen and help you.
