When I said, “My foot is slipping,” your unfailing love, Lord, supported me. When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy. -Psalm 94:18-19 

Psalm 94:19 teaches that God offers relief from our worries! Anxiety often comes from worry. Stick with me for a minute, I have great news! The Psalmist teaches us that God offers relief from our worries through His consolation. The word for consolation means comfort. It refers to relief of emotional stress and grief as well as satisfaction of mind. Essentially, the word consolation means divine relief and satisfaction of mind. God’s consolations, His divine relief, brings joy to our souls. Joy means sheer delight! God pours out His consolations, and this floods our souls with joy. Girls, we're given an incredible promise here from a God who is in charge of replacing anxieties with joy! What is bringing you anxiety this day? My list would take up pages! Yet, I let the words of the Psalmist sink into my bones and know that God is a God who replaces my anxiety with joy. 

Won't you let Him do that for you today?
