Judges 6:14 ….” Go in the strength you have…….” NIV
Hello blessed ones,
As the year is coming to an end, you are probably working very hard to accomplish the goals you set out with when it started. I want you to know you can still finish strong and I am here to encourage you.
I am not big on making New Year resolutions. However;
- I do set goals that I can measure and evaluate the progress of over the year.
- Noting what worked and what didn’t and
- make appropriate improvement or changes.
For me, during this time of year, is work-clean up time in – accounting, taxes, year ends, filings, bookkeeping, follow up calls and the list goes on. So, one of my prayers is “O God, Help!” Lol!
The truth is I need strength to accomplish the goals regarding my work. I am reminded of a scripture in Nehemiah 8 please read from verses 1-10 to understand how the Israelites were overwhelmed by the public reading of Moses’ law and teachings. However, they were encouraged in verse 10 especially in the last part “…. for the joy of the Lord is your strength”. This is great! But sometimes we want something more.
And that brings me to part of the scriptures in Judges 6:14 …. “Go in the strength you have….” Again, please read verses 11-16 to fully understand how Gideon was overwhelmed by the attacks on his community.
I find strength in knowing that as I rejoice in the Lord, I am strengthened and with that strength in Him, my rock, and nothing else, I can not be overwhelmed by anyone, anything or circumstances.
May you be encouraged today, knowing whenever you are overwhelmed to,
- rejoice in the Lord your rock and
- go in the strength you have
If you have any question(s), or prayer need, send me an email, for our God is able.
Jesus said “Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven.” Matthew 18:19 NIV
Live Life Victoriously
