‘He gives power to the weak.’ Isaiah 40:29 NKJV
When the battle continues to rage with no end in sight, you grow weary. Is that where you are today? Are things that once ran smoothly no longer working? Have you done all you know to do but it hasn’t helped?
What should you do? Spend more time with God in prayer, and listen to Him as He speaks to you through His Word. As long as you don’t give up within, victory is assured without. It’s a matter of replenishing your strength by drawing on God’s strength, refocusing your faith towards victory, and calling God’s promises ‘to remembrance.’ (Psalm 77:6 NKJV)
When you feel overwhelmed by trouble in your marriage, your business, your health, your job, or your finances, stand on these two Bible promises: ‘He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless. Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion. But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.’ (Isaiah 40:29–31 NLT)
‘We were crushed and overwhelmed beyond our ability to endure, and… thought we would never live through it. In fact, we expected to die. But as a result, we stopped relying on ourselves and learned to rely only on God… And He did rescue us… We have placed our confidence in Him, and He will continue to rescue us.’ (2 Corinthians 1:8–10 NLT)
Instead of trying to escape the situation, seek God and He will give you strength and a strategy to come out of it stronger.
