” Look to the LORD and His strength; seek His face always.” 1 Chronicles 16:11
“Prayer is the opening of the heart to God as to a friend.” Ellen G White
Life is always filled with many challenges that attempts to slow us down and even cripple us from moving forward. With absolute necessity we must understand that we have only one option if we are going to be able to conqueror the inevitable problems we will face. We are to be diligent in our commitment in seeking the LORD in worship in order to have the strength to overcome adversity. We are to persistently call on the Lord with great desire for His presence. We also must seek the LORD with relentless tenacity, knowing that He is able to give us the ability we need to make it through our struggles with the strength we need.
Friends, we must focus our concerns by reminding ourselves of who God is and what He has done. By refocusing, we find comfort in what we already know of His character: that He is loving, forgiving, sovereign, graceful, trustworthy, and our present help in troubled times.
I would like to encourage you to be determined to rely on God’s strength and to seek His face always.
Heavenly Father thank you for this wonderful promise. Help me to rely on Your strength and to always seek Your face in troubled times. In Jesus’ precious name..AMEN!
