Are you feeling weak, weary in well doing? Has Satan stolen your joy? I once heard someone say if Satan can’t steal your joy, he can’t steal your goods. The more you focus on weakness, the weaker you will become. You can change your focus. Even when others turn away from the truth, having grown weary of the plain gospel of Christ, you can expose the source of your weakness, and submit to transformation. Don’t run from preaching that is searching, plain, and to the purpose. Renew your mind, and move from weakness to strength. God created you to be stalwart and resolute. Even in the midst of storms, the Father is your exceeding great JOY!
Father, I approach the throne of grace with joyful confidence. The joy of the Lord is my strength! Lord, you are my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. Thank you for filling me with strength and protecting me wherever I go. I stagger not at the promise of God through unbelief; but I am strong in faith, giving glory to God—strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Jesus is Lord over my spirit, soul and body. Amen
