God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
All Christians will face difficulties and struggles. But there is one element that separates those who live a defeated life from those who live a victorious life.
It all has to do with where you find your source of strength.
Perhaps you are facing problems with your health, family, finances, or career. Whatever you are facing, I want to remind you to look to the Lord for His strength.
It might seem like you will never come out from under the weight of despair. But as you call upon Him, and draw strength from His Word and His presence, He will give you the strength you need to persevere.
Be encouraged today by the words of Isaiah 40:29-31:
He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength. Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.
The Lord knows your situation, and He is with you to help you through this time.
WHEN YOU FEEL THAT ALL OF YOUR STRENGTH IS GONE,
INVITE THE LORD TO RENEW YOU WITH HIS STRENGTH.
