He gives strength to those who are tired. He gives power to those who are weak. Isaiah 40:29 NIRV
God is our ever- present help in time of need. He helps us recognize how to find needed strength. He lifts us from the worry in our lives and readies us to TRUST. He opens our hearts for Jesus and provides STRENGTH to endure. He gives us courage to face fear and see how it feels to be free from the burdens in our lives.
There will be moments we feel uncertain. Worry will create anger and fear. But Jesus will walk us through every season of our lives. He knows the pain of affliction that causes us to doubt and He knows how to help us welcome calm.
As we take time to think about the cross and reflect on Jesus’ suffering, we begin to recognize He took the pain of our own. He overcame the cross. He knows how to help us overcome defeat! He gives strength to the weary and those who are afraid and finds the way to remind us where HOPE comes from.
We should take a break from what is overwhelming and think about the heart of Christ. He is ready to heal the wounds of our souls and delight in the love of our faithfulness. If we take time to remember His sacrifice and find reason to be grateful, HE will help us find HOPE for tomorrow and PEACE for today.
We don't have to be weighted in worry! God will take care of us. He will help us when we stumble and fall. There will never be a day without the love of His faithfulness. Isn’t that reason enough to stop doubting and focus on the gift of His love?
“Sometimes what we’re afraid of is the very thing that will set us free.” GOD is HERE! HE is working to restore us. HE will handle EVERY single thing! We can put our faith in knowing He WILL ALWAYS take care of each one of us.
For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline. 2 Timothy 1:7 NLT
Dear God, Thank you for the power of Your strength. Thank you for the love of Jesus! Forgive us when we become consumed with fear and need to be reminded who will handle ALL things. When weary thoughts fill us with lies, give us courage to seek Your truth and keep on going. Help us remember because of Christ’s love, we will always find HOPE in You. Thank you for taking care of us and those we love, especially in days of doubt. Thank you for giving us STRENGTH to face our fear and discover what happens when we finally choose to TRUST. Thank you, God! Amen
