Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of February 15, 2015

JoBeth32 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; when 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. And, to also know that He is our shield of protection when we are vulnerable. The more we learn to trust Him with all of our heart in the everyday little things, the more we will be confident in His help in the big problems and issues we face that can feel overwhelming. There is an amazing and euphoric joy of heart in experiencing the very real and personal help of our loving Father God. 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!
