“You are my strength, I sing praise to you; you, God, are my fortress, my God on whom I can rely.” Psalm 59:17
How uplifting and encouraging it is to see those who have been tested in the crucible of crisis going forward in faith. I can think of many who have served, or currently serve as role models for me in this area of my faith walk. Their experiences serve to teach that God will ALWAYS provide the strength and encouragement needed when facing life’s battles or during times of uncertainty.
Today, there is a calm assurance that God will never abandon His people. He will forever be our Hope, our stronghold, our refuge, and our strength. He will give us the desire to continue living out our lives for Him. We don’t deserve such love, but this is the nature of who He is because He loves us more than we could ever imagine. Through His Word, we are able to consistently draw from the well containing His never-ending supply of living water.
Enjoy this day you’ve been given. Pray for those around you who are currently facing their own personal crisis. Ask the Lord to make you a channel of blessing to someone today. My prayer is that out of your life, Jesus will shine.
Prayer: Dear Lord, thank you for this beautiful day, created by You, for our pleasure and Your good purposes. Help us to make a difference in someone’s life as we go through the traffic lanes of our life today. Give us an abundance of Your love, joy, peace, compassion, and kindness—enough to share with others. I pray this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
