Isaiah 41:10 (NKJV) “Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.”

This particular verse has been one that I have returned to over and over in my journey through life.

It has stood with me when negotiating stormy waters; God has proved Himself faithful, over and over again in supplying grace, strength and help when my own strength was faltering!  This verse guarantees me all that I can possibly need for whatever “life situation” I am facing. All I have to do is immerse myself in the words of this verse and accept God’s promise to me.

God has strength omnipotent; and that strength He enables us to tap into during times of fiery trials. This is a SURE promise from God and He NEVER reneges on His word to His trusting child.

Simply put………God said it and He will do it!  

He will be the food to our souls; health to our hearts and give us strength to fight the battles we are facing.

There is no telling how much power God can put into His trusting child!

When divine strength comes, human weakness is no longer a hindrance.

I challenge my readers today to go back to their “memorial stones” and remember seasons of labor and trial in which we received such special strength that we wondered at ourselves?

In the midst of danger we were calm, under bereavement we were comforted, in slander we were self-contained, and in sickness we were patient.

The fact is that God gives unexpected strength when unusual trials come upon us; as a result we are able to rise out of our feeble selves and beat the enemy of our souls! Our own weakness makes us shrink, but God’s promises make us brave!

My prayer today is: Lord, strengthen me “according to your word!”
