Look to the Lord and His strength; seek His face always. – (Psalm 105:4, NIV)
Depend on the Lord for strength. Always go to Him for help. – (Psalm 105:4, ERV)
Seek the Eternal and His power; look to His face constantly. – (Psalm 105:4, VOICE)
God is faithful to supply what we need for each new day. This time of year, strength feels like it is in short supply, yet each time I call on the Lord I discover again, His provision. As we press on, anticipating spring break, the mornings begin to illuminate earlier and earlier, and the daylight lasts a bit longer into the evenings. There is something about the glimmers of extra light that strengthen and encourage. His faithfulness is as certain as the rising sun, and we can seek Him constantly, knowing that He sees and hears all that we need. May we begin the morning anew, depending on Him to be our strength, and go forth in the help that He faithfully supplies.
May we look to God,
Our strength and our hope;
The light of the world,
True to all He’s spoke.
His heart is for us,
His grace shall supply;
All that we’re needing,
To more than get by.
Remind us anew,
As each day begins;
That You are the strength,
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that we can seek You to be our Source and Supply in all things and at all times. Thank You that You are present to help each time we call upon You. Forgive us for the times that we have tried to navigate on our own, or have attempted to muscle our way through things on our own. Teach us to turn to You in trust, for we can always depend on You. Show us how to love those around us in ways that strengthen and encourage spaces in need. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we seek You to be our strength, and continue to come before You to be our help. Amen.
