Look to the Lord and His strength; seek His face always. – (Psalm 105:4)
Strength is a funny thing; Jesus grants us what we need, as we need it, yet the sense of it rising up within us never seems to come until we set aside ourselves and seek to solely rely on Him. We are created to be relational. Not just relational with people, but with our Creator. In this fallen world, we need His wisdom, guidance and strength to navigate the ways in which we are meant to walk, daily. Be it in trial or in triumph, may we seek His face, and look to the Lord for His strength, so that we may honor Him all of our days.
of faith, might or heart;
without seeking God,
all will fall apart.
For we were designed,
purposed each to be;
with Jesus our King.
Let each day begin,
with seeking His face;
ask the Lord for strength,
and receive His grace.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that we can seek You and find You always. Thank You that You are our Source of strength, and that You grant us all we need as we choose to rely on You. Thank You that You created us to be in relationship with You, and that You made the way for us to enter into a relationship with You that remains forever. Forgive us for trying to rely on our own strength, or for not seeking You in all things and at all times. Teach us to make it a new normal in our operating throughout our days. May many come to know You as we love others as You love us. Be glorified as we live, love and serve in Your strength. Amen.
