2 Corinthians 12:9 (HCSB)

"But He said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.' Therefore, I will most gladly boast all the more about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may reside in me."

"Our strength may fail, but our God will not." -- Anonymous

What a comfort. I don't have to be strong. He does, and He is. He is sufficient for me. This knowledge is very comforting when I feel so tired and weak.

Thank you, LORD, for your grace that is sufficient for me.

Until next time...

Love the LORD & Listen for His Voice

Jeremiah 17:7-8
"...Blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him.
They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit."

"The still, small voice is never silent. If you sit for a moment in the stillness of His presence, His voice will come to you - quietly - and whisper words of peace." -- Anonymous

Deuteronomy 20:20 NIV
"Love the Lord your God,
listen to his voice,
and hold fast to Him.
For the Lord is your life."

2 Timothy 1:7 (NIV)
"For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. "

Psalm 147:5 (NIV)
"Great is our LORD and mighty in power; His understanding has no limit."

"God will never break a promise He's made to you - every one of them was written to bless you." -- Anonymous

God has mighty power and understanding, and he gives me power, love and self-discipline. There is no part of life that He & I can't deal with as I turn to him for support. He will help me with his limitless understanding and power. This is a promise from Him that He will not break.

Dear Lord,
Thank you. Thank you for loving me and being concerned about my life. Thank you for not giving me a spirit of fear and for giving me the alternative of power, love and self-discipline.

Until Next Time...

"I will bless you... and you will be a blessing." Genesis 12:2 NIV

"Success is not measured by our achievements, but by the lives we bless." -- Anonymous

God is very successful, and in this verse, He is saying that He will make us successful. He will make us a blessing if we let him, and He measures that as success. That's all that matters. Cling to Him.

-- Until next time...
