The Lord is My Strength

Challenging times come and go, but sometimes they seem to be more present than ever. As you turn to local or national media, there is continued exposure to devastating and troubling events. As such, a person can feel hopeless, without courage, despair, lack vision regarding where to go, and what to do to fix the problem. Where can someone find the vision, help, and strength they need?

There are times in life where the odds appear stacked against us, and it may be doubtful that we will be triumphant. It may be easy to lack confidence that we will be successful with overcoming the challenge before us during such occasions. When feeling defeated or concerned that you will not be successful, where can you turn? In the Bible, the book of Psalm offers much support, encouragement, and hopefulness during troubling times.

As a follower of Jesus Christ, who gains much wisdom through reading the Bible, that is where I frequently turn to gain strength, knowledge, wisdom, insight, and direction for my life. When faced with troubling times, I recommend turning to the Lord in prayer:

“Hear my prayer Lord; let my cry for help come to you” (Psalm 102:1, NIV);
“May my cry come before you, Lord; give me understanding according to Your word.”

Psalm 102:1; 119:169/NIV

“I lift up my eyes to the mountains – where does my help come from?; my help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.”

Psalm 121:1-2 (NIV

“The Lord will keep you from all harm- He will watch over your life.”

Psalm 121:5/NIV

As I review these Bible verses, I am provided with great comfort because I know there is hope. As I can stand firm and steadfast in a storm, I do so with the strength of my Heavenly Father. As I have held on tight, survived the turmoil and the challenging moment, gratitude towards God who enabled my victory is essential:

“Give thanks to the Lord for Hs is good and His love endures forever; the Lord is my strength and my defense; He has become my salvation.”

Psalm 118: 1;14/NIV

The Lord is my strength! I hope this message brings you some comfort and reassurance!
