God Gives Us Strength"
God is our protection and our strength. He always helps in times of trouble.
Psalm 46:1 NCV
No one is happy go lucky, a bright shinning star, or smiles all the time. The woes of day to day life have a way of wearing us down. Not only are we sometimes irritable and disagreeable, our strength is zapped and we're tired and sluggish. There is help to get us back on the right trackand renew our strength. God is ever present and waiting for our call.He is the "SOURCE" of our strength.
When the events in life tear us down and leave us out on a limb, Godis standing by. He will do one of two things. He will give us the powerand strength to hold on while He works the situation out. Or He willbe waiting to catch us if our grip gives out and we fall. God works a "renewal process" in us that we and others sometimes don't understand. He renews our minds and gives us wisdom to make the right decisions.When doubt creeps in, and we can't see our way, God renews our hopeso we can trust Him because He is the WAY . He renews our weakness and gives us power to cope and stand when others are giving up and we sometimes have to stand alone. Love and forgiveness is always at the top of God's renewal list, where would we be without them? He renews and restores us daily with what we need. He already knows what obstacles will come against us and He equips us for battle. Whatever we need it's there, ask in prayer and receive it. Trust God for what you need, remember, "Little prayer, little power; Much prayer, much power. No prayer, no power."
Be Strong, and have a Great TUESDAY!!!!!!!!!!!
