The Lord gives His people strength; the Lord blesses His people with peace. – (Psalm 29:11, HCSB)
May the Lord make His people strong. May the Lord bless His people with peace. – (Psalm 29:11, ERV)
God makes His people strong. God gives His people peace. – (Psalm 29:11, MSG)
Life is an endless rollercoaster of ups and downs, highs and lows, and we need the Lord to navigate well. He supplies us with the strength we need and He grants us His peace, even in the midst of chaos, storms, and uncertainty. Incredibly, God grants us strength and peace for more than just ourselves. As we trust in Him and seek to love people as He calls us to love, we find that He uses our willingness to share all that He gives with those around us who need it. May we ever seek the Lord to be our strength, and depend on Him, for He is our peace.
The Lord gives us strength,
When ours is all gone;
Our help and our hope,
To keep pressing on.
In Him there is peace,
Ever it is new;
He will lead us through.
Lord, help us focus,
Our hearts and our minds;
On all that is You,
And how You supply.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You are our strength and our peace in all things and at all times. Forgive us for the times that we neglect to recognize the strength that You are providing, or for not slowing down to lay hold of the peace that You are creating within us. Teach us to trust and rely on You. Show us how to love those around us in ways that extend strength and peace where it is needed most. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we praise You for the strength and peace that You provide, and trust in You to continue, always. Amen.
The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and I am helped. Therefore my heart rejoices, and I praise Him with my song. – Psalm 28:7
