LIVING THANKFULLY - PART 9
Maybe you woke up today troubled, anxious, or in despair. Know God sees you right where you are. Lift your eyes to Him. Hear His words as He whispers, “Do not fear; I will help you.” God is good! God is faithful. Christ’s power is still available to help you in every situation. And though we’re weak, through His divine power, we can be strong to accomplish what He’s appointed us to do.
It’s essential that we not view our lives in light of our weaknesses. Focusing exclusively on weakness is debilitating and leads quickly to discouragement. Focusing on Christ’s power in our lives in contrast to and in spite of our weakness leads to encouragement and hope, even in the most challenging circumstances.
Thank God that He has not given you a spirit of fear but of power, love, and sound mind. Lift your voice to God, thanking Him in advance for walking with you today and being your ever-present help. Ask God to strengthen your trust in Him and to grant you mercy and give you grace to get through this day and every season of your life. Live thankfully! Click to reflect on the following scriptures. God bless you! -mp
