I was reading a devotion from Joyce Meyer's book called Starting Your Day Right. It said,
"If you are weak in faith, in mind, in body, in discipline, in self-control, or in determination, simply wait on God. He will be strong through your weakness."
I am so thankful that I don't have to be strong enough on my own to face my day. No matter what the day holds for me, I know that my strength comes from God. He is strong in my weakness. He upholds me when I allow Him to.
It also said, "Isaiah 40:31 teaches that if you expect God, look for Him, and hope in Him, you will change and renew your strength and power; you will run, and not faint or become tired. The Bible doesn't say "hope so, it could be, or it may be"; it declares that you will be renewed."
God is waiting to renew us if we simply look to Him and hope in Him. We need to slow down and spend time hoping in our God and Savior. Lay your troubles and worries at his feet and He will lift you up!
