Look to the Lord and his strength (1 Chronicles 16:11).
Help us, Lord our God, for we rely on you (2 Chronicles 14:11).
There are times when we feel strong, times when it feels like we’re taking everything in our stride. There are times, when it feels like everything seems to be too much for us. When things are going well, weshould give thanks to the Lord. Life will not always be like this. Things can change very quickly. Something happens, and it hits us hard. We don’t know what to do. Things have gone wrong for us, and we don’t feel that we have the strength that we need to cope with life’s difficulties. These are the times when we need to hear these words, “Look to the Lord and his strength.” These are the times when we need to look to the Lord for his help. These are the times when we need to learn to rely on the Lord. When it seems like our lives are falling apart, may the Lord come near to us, assuring us that he will give us the strength that we need.
