Daily Bible Verse:              Isaiah 50:10

‘If you are walking in darkness, without a ray of light, trust in the LORD and rely on your God.’

- No matter how much darkness we face, we have One on Whom we can rely.
- Even if it seems like there is no ray of hope, we can trust Him, for He is with us.
- When the way forward seems uncertain, and we do not know what to do, He is there.
- Trust in the Lord, and rely on your God.

Prayer: Lord, as I walk through life, it is great to know that You are always watching over me. No amount of darkness can extinguish the ray of hope and confidence that I have in You. I will trust in You and I will not be afraid. Amen.


Daily Bible Verse: Isaiah 50:10
‘If you are walking in darkness, without a ray of light, trust in the LORD and rely on your God.’


Daily Bible Verse: Isaiah 50:7
‘Because the Sovereign LORD helps me, I will not be disgraced. Therefore, I have set my face like a stone, determined to do His will. And I know that I will not be put to shame.’

EMPOWERED BY GOD

April 6, 2020

How often we live our lives in our own strength. We run around doing what 'seems good unto us' and in the process we get exhausted, tired, stressed, pressurized, weak, depressed and worn out.  I know a lady who carried so much with her. One day I spoke to her and asked her how she handled the weight of the burden she carried in life? She retorted by saying: 'I've got broad shoulders'.  Many of us have this 'broad-shoulder approach' and we are sure we can handle whatever comes our way.  This is great, until one day, when things just get too much and we need help.  It is then that we discover that we need God and His strength in our lives.  The Bible tells us that we are 'earthen vessels'. This means that we are not as strong as we think we are and we need God more that we realize.

QUOTATION - I heard someone make the following statement: 'Everything we do in our own strengthen wears us down, everything we do through God's strength enables (encourages, strengthens, builds us up) us!' 

DEFINITION: Power - is the capacity to effect (do) something!

THE POWER OF GOD IS AVAILABLE TO US
Romans 8:11 And if the Spirit of Him Who raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in you, [then] He Who raised up Christ Jesus from the dead will also restore to life your mortal (short-lived, perishable) bodies through His Spirit Who dwells in you. 
With God, we have the capacity, ability, endurance and perseverance to be able to really have an effect.  This verse tells us that the same power that raised Jesus from the dead can live within us.  In addition this power that is available to us will come and restore to life our physical bodies.  When this happens everything changes.  We are no longer the same.  Our lives and the way we live our lives changes.  We are no longer running on our own strength.  We can switch over to His power in our lives.
