Seek the Lord and His strength; seek His face evermore! Psalm 105:4
Strength and energy are some things that people are always desiring to have more of in their lives. People are often worn out and tired right from the beginning of the morning as they arise for the day. At the end of the day they are even more tired. Strength is sought for in exercising, change of diet, and adding supplements to their diet, yet it often falls short. This is even more true when disaster strikes one’s life and one does not have the strength to keep moving forward.
The psalmist says to seek the Lord and His strength, to seek His face forever.
People want to be stronger. Often it is to be stronger to rule over others or to be better than others around them. Books and articles abound on how to be stronger in every area of life imaginable. Millions of dollars are spent annually on ways to increase one’s strength, often to only fail or fall short.
The world is seeking a physical strength that is severely limited and often fails. It is a temporary strength and found only in one’s own abilities. There is always someone that is stronger.
Instead of seeking the temporary physical strength of self and the world, believers are to seek out God and His eternal and infinite strength. God, who created everything in this world and holds it together by His power, has all the strength one needs for any situation one may be going through.
He has strength in peace, comfort, physical strength, forgiveness, love, mercy, wisdom, guidance and much more, and He is willing to share it with those who seek Him and His strength. God gives the believer the strength to make it through any situation in life.
As with most people, you have days in which you feel weak or worn out without any strength left. Do not allow yourself to fall into despair and seek the temporary and weak strength of this world. Put all of your focus upon seeking God and His strength. Lean on Him and His guidance in your life to give you what you need to make it through whatever situation you may be going through in your life. God created you, loves you and is ready and willing to give you what you need to keep growing and moving forward.
Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Lord and Savior; that you will seek God with all of your life; that you will seek God’s strength in your life; that you will know the strength of God; and that God will fill you with His strength to accomplish His will in your life.
