Disappointment, discouragement, fear, daily struggles…some days take everything we have. When we rely only on our own strength and what we have to give, we quickly become worn out and discouraged.
But when we turn to God for His strength and replenishment, we are able to keep moving forward. We are able to keep giving to our family and friends. We are able to keep hoping, not because of what we can see, but because of Who we know God is.
Psalm 105:4 NLT
“Search for the Lord and for his strength; continually seek him.”
God’s strength is available to us when we seek His presence in our daily lives.
Isaiah 58:11 NLT
“The Lord will guide you continually, giving you water when you are dry and restoring your strength. You will be like a well-watered garden, like an ever-flowing spring.”
God supplies the living water we need. When I get busy and don’t make time to spend with God and in His Word, I find myself parched and desperately in need of His restoring and strengthening. But, when I sit and rest with Him I feel nourished. He guides and gives strength, but if we don’t pay attention, we can miss it.
Psalm 46:1 NIV
“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.”
God, in all His power, is with us ready to protect and save. He strengthens us day-by-day to withstand trouble, to wait, and to persevere.
Philippians 4:13 CEV
“Christ gives me the strength to face anything.”
Whatever comes our way, whatever God calls us to do, we can handle it because Christ empowers us through His strength.
Isaiah 41:10 NLT
“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.”
No matter what we face, God promises to be with us. He offers us comfort, reassurance, encouragement, and His support. Is there anything better?
