Our Strength is in the Lord

Psalm 84:10-11

God, our protector, keep us in mind;always give strength to your people. For if we can be with you even one day, it is better than a thousand without you.

How true is the passage above! We are all better to have spent even one day with God than to never have spent any time in His presence.

God always gives us the strength to handle any situation as long as we are willing to accept His help. We so often try to go at it alone and we usually fail. It is in our weakness as humans that we are able to accept His strength.

This doesn’t mean that our lives will always be sunshine and roses. On the contrary – God knows that we will be tested many, many times during our lifetime. He wants us to know that if we just rely on Him, all will be fine. We will still have hardships and sorrows, but God will give us the strength to get through those moments.

Pray to God to give you the strength that you need to get through each day. He will always provide and He always answers every prayer, even if it’s not the answer we want to hear. But, in His plan and His timing, it’s always the right answer.

Remember in the hustle and bustle of each routine day that each day in fact is a gift from God.  Be weak enough to acknowledge that you need His strength and compassion. The weak will become strong with the Lord lifting you up!
