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)
Search for the Lord and His strength; continually seek Him. – (Psalm 105:4, NLT)
Look to, depend on, and search for the Lord and His strength, are perfect reminders of our need to pursue our Provider in this season of busy that can leave us feeling depleted. God is faithful to meet us as we seek Him. His love never fails. These are important reminders, as this week, the last before Spring Break, seems to be the longest of the year. May we ever look to the Lord for strength, depend on Him to be present, and search for Him, as He will be found by the seeking.
When weary and worn,
I look to the Lord;
For in Him I find,
His strength, He’ll outpour.
God’s goodness and grace,
Meet me in this space;
He renews resolve,
Throughout all my days.
Resolve to press on,
Keep going as called;
Presence and His peace,
By grace, He installs.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that as we look to You, depend on You and search for You, You meet us in our need and supply what we are lacking. Thank You for Your strength when ours has run out. Forgive us for allowing weariness to drag us down. Teach us to trust You more, as You provide Your rest at the perfect time. Show us how to love and strengthen those around us, so they may be ever aware of Your goodness and grace. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we pursue You and Your provision to carry us when we feel depleted. Amen.
