Isaiah 41:8-10 - But you, Israel, my servant, Jacob, whom I have chosen, the offspring of Abraham my friend; you whom I took from the ends of the earth, and called from its farthest corners, saying to you, "You are my servant, I have chosen you and not cast you off"; fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Acts 17:26-28 - And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place, that they should seek God, in the hope that they might feel their way toward him and find him. Yet he is actually not far from each one of us, for "'In him we live and move and have being'; as even some of your own poets have said, "'For we are indeed his offspring.'"
Dear God, thank You for never changing. Help me focus on that the next time someone takes a turn for the worse and turns ugly against me. Be with me. Hold me close to You. Never let me stray. Remind me of Your promises when I do face the hard times. Thank You. In Jesus' Name, Amen!
