He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Isaiah 40:29
We all find ourselves broken and weary at some point in our life. It is easy to believe and follow Jesus when things are going well, but often the toughest time to keep our faith strong is when we are trying to keep putting one foot in front of the other while not fainting. In those moments of absolute powerlessness, weakness, and brokenness the Lord is often most real, most powerful, and most present.
Thank you, God, for sustaining me and keeping my faith alive when I have been under attack from the Evil One and have grown weary with the challenges and hardships of life. Please give those I love, and mention now by name, the strength to press on even though they are weary and weak. Please be real in their lives and let them know that you are coming with grace to help and redeem as their Great Deliverer. In Jesus’ name I ask it. Amen.
We serve such an Awesome God!
I will love You, O Lord, my strength. 2 The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. 3 I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised;
So shall I be saved from my enemies. Psalm 18:1-3
Psalm 18 is a such a special psalm because you will find it in 2 places in the Bible. It is here in the Book of Psalms. It is also in the Book of 2 Samuel. 2 Samuel tells us the story of David after he became king.
I Love how this Psalm begins; “I love you” this is such a beautiful intimate proclamation from an earthly king spoken to the heavenly King who rescued him from his enemies. Our Lord is a fortress for protection, delivery, safety, refuge, and strength. All attributes of the God who loves us and draws us to himself. He is worthy of Praise, He is worthy of Trust, He is our Strength in times of trouble and He wants to deliver us ALL. Hallelujah
Blessed be the name of the LORD.
God answered David’s prayer because He delights in His worshipers.
Let these verses be an encouragement for you today, knowing, He wants to deliver you from your enemies, enlighten you in your darkness, reward you, strengthen you, make your way perfect, lift you up, and show you mercy. Blessed be the name of the LORD.!
Walk today in the knowledge that our God saves, redeems and restores.
