I have been feeling out of sorts lately. I have to many worries that they sometime overwhelm me. I pray everyday not once not twice but as many times as I deem necessary to calm my fears. When my kids were young and small, I enjoyed every moment spent with them but there were times that I was so tired that I cannot wait for them to grow up. Surely my worries and responsibilities will lessen as they grow and come of age. I was wrong. With each passing year comes a different level of problems and challenges. With each passing year comes the realization that being a mother to my children will never cease to be. Sure! My kids can choose to stop being my "kids" but I can never stop being their mother.

As I contemplate on the many twists and turns of my life, the Lord sent me this message through Joel and Victoria Osteen. Read on and let me share God's thoughts for me today.

Finding Strength

TODAY'S SCRIPTURE

"But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint"
(Isaiah 40:31, NIV).

TODAY'S WORD from Joel and Victoria

Do you need your strength renewed today? The scripture tells us that when we hope in the Lord, that's exactly what will happen—our strength will be renewed. If you've grown weary and tired, overwhelmed by the cares of this world, it's a clear sign that you need to change what you're putting your hope in. Are you putting your hope in your job? The government? The economy? Another person? Those are all things that will change. But when you hope in the Lord, you are investing in the Rock of Ages! He never changes! He is the only solid foundation for your soul.

Today, find strength by simply putting your hope in Him. Start by declaring out loud, "God, I place my hope in You. I trust that You are working behind the scenes in my life. I choose to rest in You." Then, feed your hope and faith by meditating daily on the scriptures. As you renew your mind with the Word of God, you'll find strength, you'll find hope, and you'll find His victory all the days of your life!

A PRAYER FOR TODAY

Father God, thank You for renewing my strength as I put my hope in You. I declare today that I love You and trust You. I know that You are working behind the scenes in my life. Fill me with Your peace and joy as I wait on You. In Jesus' Name. Amen.

- Joel & Victoria Osteen

  1. Fear is the opposite of faith and our faith is the only thing that pleases God. However, we do have fears yet we do not declare them. But we declare our faith in the Word of God to receive the things that we want to happen in our life. God is good!
