Scripture for the week of August 18, 2019
The Lord is my strength and shield. I trust Him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving. Psalm 27:8 (NLT)
What can we do when we run out of strength in the battles we face and there seems to be no where to turn for help? It is wonderful to know that the almighty endless strength of God is available when our strength is not enough. It is a great encouragement to know that He is our shield of protection and provider when we feel empty and vulnerable. There is an amazing and euphoric joy of heart in knowing the very real and personal help of our loving Father God and experiencing His strength extended to us in our weakness! (2 Cor. 12:9) The more we learn to trust the Lord with all of our heart in the everyday little things, the more we will be confident in His help in the big problems and overwhelming issues we face. Why not lay aside your doubts and fears and trust Him with all your heart today? You just might find yourself singing a new song of joy!
