Have you had your Joy Juice today? At times you may feel weak, but the joy of the Lord is always concentrated with strength!
As we pray for those who have been displaced and affected in a variety of ways by natural disasters likes floods and hurricanes or whatever the case may be, we realize that all of us have to be aware that we are not in control of some things. We are powerless when it comes to orchestrating the storms of life…whether we are talking about the weather or our situation in life. When we fight these challenges in our own strength, often we grow weary. That is why it’s so important to remember the scriptures and the encouragement of God’s Word.
Isaiah 40:29 says: “He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.”
Weary…that word alone describes a great majority of people at any given time. Weary as is tired, physically; weary as in exhausted from emotional burdens; weary from trying to “fix things” in our own way. Instead of depending on ourselves, the wise thing to do is to live out the above scripture. HE gives strength to the weary…that’s GOD! HE increases the power of the weak (us)! But we have to relinquish control and ask for His help.
This quote says it well: “God will direct your steps. He will give you the strength to live your life with a good attitude. When discouragement comes your way, just say: “No, thanks! I’m going to keep my joy! I know God is in control of my life. He’s going to get me where I’m supposed to be.” www.feelmylove.org
Tap into God’s strength, hold on to His joy and go where He wants you to go.
