When You Need Strength

We all have challenges, but all things are possible with God. God is our strength, and He releases strength into us as we spend time with Him. When we are so tired and worn out mentally, physically, and spiritually. Rely fully on Him and ask for His help. Do not be ashamed or frustrated by weakness and failure when God’s strength is yours for the asking. We cannot do much by ourselves but we can do anything through Christ.

As we go through the motions in life on a daily basis we tend to not stop and rest for a bit in solitude and peace. Make quiet time with the Lord and share the burdens you carry and what is stressing you out and causing anxiety.

Pain is a part of life and love and helps you grow. Don’t try to control everything in your life. If you’re truly giving this to God then He will take care of you and provide. Keep in mind that God is more interested in making your life holy than He is in making your life happy because holiness has eternal value. God’s goal is to help you learn how to become more like Jesus Christ, and you often can do that best by going through suffering and developing a stronger character in the process. So don’t expect that you can avoid suffering; accept the fact that suffering will inevitably come into your life (as it does for everyone) whenever God allows it. Instead of trying to avoid suffering, ask God to use it to accomplish good purposes in your life. Ask God to help you view your hardship from the perspective of how it advances God’s purposes for you. Follow your faith, not your feelings. God is our provider in all circumstances.

DO NOT BE TERRIFIED OR DISCOURAGED, for I am with you wherever you go. It’s easy for My followers to feel frightened and pessimistic when the mainstream voices in this world speak so heavily against them. Looking at this life through godless, biased lenses will indeed pull you down. Christian courage is the antidote to this poisonous input, and it is nourished by the knowledge that I am always with you. It is crucial to remember that what you can see of reality is only a very small piece of the whole. When Elijah was deeply discouraged, he said he was the only one who had remained faithful. Yet there were thousands in Israel who had not bowed down to Baal. Elijah was blinded by his isolation and his discouragement. Similarly, Elisha’s servant was terrified because he couldn’t see what Elisha saw; horses and chariots of fire all around to protect them from enemy forces. Beloved, not only am I with you, but I have unlimited resources to help you. So look beyond the way things appear, and take courage!
