I Am Strong

Posted: May 15, 2019

“Let the weak say I am strong” Joel 3:10

Pastor John referenced this verse in his Open Heart message about healing. The truth is that this verse refers to preparing for battle and sometimes getting healed feels like fighting a war!
- It’s hard to pray over and over without getting discouraged.
- It’s hard to read my Bible when I feel like God has deserted me.
- It’s hard to reach out for support again when I’m still in this long ordeal.
- It’s hard to believe that the best is yet to come…

But I will not lose heart, I will not give up. I will say “I am strong” even if I don’t believe it in that moment. The Lord God fights for me!

Lord God, I’m feeling weak and burdened. Thank You for reminding me to be strong, courageous, brave, and patient. It’s not fun, it’s not pleasant, and sometimes it HURTS! I’m so glad you never leave me. Help me get through every day until I see victory. Amen!
