"Do not give way to lowness while you are young. Rise up on the strength of God and resolve to conquer!"
- Catherine Booth
When I read that quote yesterday, I was reminded of the strength that God gives me so that I can rise up and conquer the challenges in my life. There is one particular challenge in my life right now that I simply could not overcome by myself...but by HIS grace, and strength that HE alone provides, I am conquering it. I have no need to fear..."If God is for us, than who can be against us?" Romans 8:31
"The Lord is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?"
"God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble..."
"O Lord, my strength and my fortress, My refuge in the day of affliction."
"My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness."
2 Corinthians 12:9
As humans, we often have limited understanding of how great our God is. Sometimes, we limit in our minds, what God can do. For example; living in a larger family, the comment is often made saying: "How on earth can your mom handle everything? Having eight children, homeschooling and living on a farm? She must be a saint!" The answer is that the LORD gives my mom strength to overcome challenges, and HE provides a deep well of strength and comfort from which she and everyone of us can draw from.
"Oh give thanks to the Lord, for He is good!"
