Devotional 8/27

I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13

When we pray, God hears more than we say, answers more than we ask, gives more than we imagine… in His own time, and in His own way.

Father God, Lord Jesus, Holy Spirit; you are Holy and there is no other God besides you. I know that you have already given us the victory over every fight, challenge, set back and change of plans. Today, I thank you for all of the strength that you are willing to give us. We do not even ask that you remove the trials, we just ask for strength to accept your PERFECT will. 

I TELL YOU THE TRUTH LORD, THIS IS HARD AND EXHAUSTING; ALMOST FEELS LIKE THE LAST STRAW THAT BROKE THE CAMEL’S BACK. But your word says that there is no temptation we can go through that would overcome us. So I know the temptations to wild out, to be depressed or go into rebellion are truly not able to overcome us if we keep our faith in You. Sometimes we may feel like we can’t go on, but today I lift up everyone who may be facing a hard day, a hard season or a hard life. I pray they would know that this is all temporary, and it shall pass. 

God, there may be things happening around us, that make us feel weak, helpless and afraid. Please give each person reading, the strength they need to face today. And please keep us from sinning during the process: with our mouths, with our minds AND with our bodies. Even though the Israelite were in the wilderness, they were not alone. They may have felt alone, and even shortchanged but You had a better plan for them. And sometimes Your plans don’t make sense, and will not make sense; except I always remind myself that one day we will look back and make sense of it all. I pray you bless and keep us, and strengthen us by the power of your might until we can walk again in a renewed state of mind, with love and light in our hearts. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
