May 22, 2018 GREAT STRENGTH
There are times in our lives when we feel like we just can’t go on. We have lost a loved one, gone through a divorce or had to deal with a financial loss. We feel as if our lives are forever changed and our “normal” has been disrupted. We may be physically tired. We may have emotional issues. The things we have to deal with in life seem to come at us at the most inopportune times. However, God in His infinite wisdom has what we need. He has the power, the strength, and the grace and mercy to help us. When we have trust in the Lord, we will find new and great strength because He is able to help us in all things.
Isaiah 40:29-31 He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless. Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion. But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.” (NLT)
1. Write what you are dealing with right now.
2. Write about the situation and how you are feeling about it.
3. Know God wants to help you.
4. Seek Him for guidance and strength and have faith He will give you rest.
Dear Lord, we pray You will help us today. There are things we are having to deal with and we don’t know what to do. There are situations in our lives that we feel like giving up and don’t know where to turn. Help us to remember to turn to You in all things. We know You tell us You will give us strength. You will renew us. You will help us to run and not grow weary. We are so grateful to You for all You do. We love You, Lord, and thank You for Your love and Your strength and Your mercy. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
When we put our trust in God, He will help us through the hard times.
When we are going through hard times, God wants us to lean on Him and never give up.
2 Corinthians 4:16 “That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day.” (NLT)
God is able to help us no matter what we are dealing with in life.
God gives rest to those who are going through hard times and feel like giving up.
Jeremiah 31:25 “For I have given rest to the weary and joy to the sorrowing.” (NLT)
