Even when we feel powerless, sad, weary and weak, God strengthens us to accomplish every activity that He ever calls on us to achieve for Him (Philippians 4:13). He abides within us by His Spirit, and we are never alone or helpless.
When we put our hope in Him, we are strong in His mighty power, rising up like eagles above the conflicts that face us as they attempt to surround and overcome us (Isaiah 40:29-31; Psalm 119:28; Ephesians 6:10). Jesus is the light of our salvation, and we have no need to fear.
We find that God’s grace is all that we really need to overcome life’s hurdles, because His power in us is perfected and demonstrated in our weakest moments (2 Corinthians 12:9-10). If our heart trusts in Him alone, He is our strength and our shield (Psalm 28:7).
Since God is our fortress of salvation, and we are His anointed Saints, our heart abounds with joy. We sing Him praises all day long (Psalm 28:8, 118:14). We never tire of thanking Him for who He is and what He continually does for us.
We rejoice in His presence within us, we pray without ceasing, and we consult Him for His guidance and wisdom before commencing even the simplest action (Proverbs 3:5-6). We trust in Him alone, and we find our self experiencing His divine intervention all throughout our day.
Father God, we thank You for being gracious to us, and for creating in us a longing in our soul for more intimacy with You. Each new morning You are our strength. When we feel stress, fear or anxiety, You are our continual help and salvation (Isaiah 33:2).
You make us sure-footed on the rocky road of life, and we are able to climb to great spiritual heights, because You are our sovereign Lord (Habakkuk 3:19). We pray that out of Your glorious riches, You continue to provide for all of our needs, and that You will always strengthen us with the power of Your Spirit in our spirit, soul and body (Ephesians 3:16).
Thought for the Day:
Our Most High God is the strength of our life, our salvation that vanquishes every foe that exists against us; therefore, we have no need to fear; even if our faith fails us, God is the strength of our heart and our provision now and forever.
– Psalm 27:1-3, 73:26
