Topic: Stronger And Stronger In The Lord
Scripture: . . . I will strengthen and harden you to difficulties, yes, I will help you; yes, I will hold you up and retain you with My [victorious] right hand of rightness and justice.
Isaiah 41:10 (AMPC)
Message: Consider your life. Are there situations you now handle well that would have previously made you feel fearful and anxious? Of course, there are. As you have been walking with God, He has been strengthening you and hardening you to difficulties—you can be thankful that you are stronger than you used to be.
Stronger and Stronger in the Lord
In the same way, I can assure and encourage you that some of the things bothering you right now will not affect you the same way in five years. We often struggle when we do certain things for the first time, but after gaining some experience, that struggle is no longer present. We can press through obstacles and never allow circumstances to control us. Instead, trust the Lord and know that He is working in your life in every situation.
Prayer Starter: Father, help me to learn from You in every situation I face. I thank You that I am stronger than I used to be, and I thank You that You are making me even stronger through my present circumstances. I put my trust in You, knowing that nothing is too difficult for You, amen.
