“We can be tired, weary and emotionally distraught, but after spending time alone with God, we find that He injects into our bodies energy, power and strength.” -Charles Stanley

Are you letting God inject you with His goodness? How will you spend time with Him today?

He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. -Isaiah 40:29

It is God who arms me with strength and keeps my way secure. -Psalm 18:82

She is clothed with strength and dignity;
she can laugh at the days to come. -Proverbs 31:25

Truth-Filled Hope

‘He will wipe away every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death.’ (Isaiah 25:8) And there will be no more sadness. There will be no more crying or pain. Things are no longer the way they used to be. He who was sitting on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down. You can trust these words. They are true.”
‭-Revelation‬ ‭21:4-5‬

At a time when my family is experiencing so much loss while also trying to navigate the uncertainty that lies ahead, I’m going to hold onto this gem-this hope from His Word. As Christians, we have this truth to look forward to. Though we experience many trials and tribulations here on this earth, He is making everything new. We can grasp tightly, this promise, from our Almighty God. And while it may not feel like it as we walk through the fire, rest assured that God’s got us and He is refining us. Day by day, He is renewing us, as He’s got everything under control.

So let us meditate on the hope He gives us in Revelation 21:4-5, knowing that He has it all in His hands, and that our real future is with Our Father. We can look forward to a new life without sickness, tears, heartache, or brokenness. In the meantime, while we wait for that day to come, let’s keep our eyes on Him, our Hope, and not lose heart.

“Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.”
‭‭-2 Corinthians‬ ‭4:16-17‬ ‭‬‬

Edmund Clowney said, “Trials should not surprise us, or cause us to doubt God’s faithfulness. Rather, we should actually be glad for them. God sends trials to strengthen our trust in him so that our faith will not fail.”

How is your attitude towards God when the trials of life hit?

Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.-James 1:2-3

In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith-of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire-may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. -1 Peter 1:6-7

Charles Stanley said, “Our heavenly Father understands our disappointment, suffering, pain, fear, and doubt. He is always there to
encourage our hearts and help us
understand that He’s sufficient for all of
our needs. When I accepted this as an
absolute truth in my life, I found that my
worrying stopped.”

Have you accepted this truth?

And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. -Philippians 4:19

Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?

“And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? -Matthew 6:25-34

Are you trusting our Engineer in the darkness, as well as the light?

They will have no fear of bad news; their hearts are steadfast, trusting in the Lord. -Psalm 112:7

Our soul waits for the LORD; he is our help and our shield. For our heart is glad in him,
because we trust in his holy name. Let your steadfast love, O LORD, be upon us, even as we hope in you. -Psalm 33:20-22

Are you letting Him nourish and replenish you?

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. -Matthew 11:28

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” -John 16:33

Will you hold onto fear or trust God and choose to live fearlessly?

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. -John 14:27

For I am the LORD your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you. -Isaiah 41:13

circumstances are more important than God’s command to always rejoice.”

What are you conveying?

Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? -Matthew 6:25


Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. -1 Peter 5:7

Charles Spurgeon said, “To trust God in the light is nothing, but trust him in the dark-that is faith.”

How would you measure your faith? Are you trusting Him not only in the light, but on the darkest of days too?

For we live by faith, not by sight. -2 Corinthians 5:7

But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit. -Jeremiah 17:7-8

Know

Last night, I was awake until the wee hours of the morning. It wasn’t until just after 4am that I finally fell asleep. So, tonight I was looking forward to a full night’s slumber. My daughter’s breathing took a turn for the worse, however, and she started having an asthma attack just before bed. With her oxygen level dropping, I knew it was going to be a long night of me monitoring her every fifteen minutes.

And a long night, I can handle. Heck, having handled many long nights, I’m a pro. But, with the continual challenges we’ve been pounded with over the last several years, I am truly exhausted. As I prepared our girls’ schoolwork for tomorrow, I got lost in thought about the state of this world, the suffering so many are experiencing right now, and the weariness I’m feeling lately. I began spacing out. When my eyes came to focus, it happened to be on a copywork/handwriting worksheet I had pulled from a folder. A few minutes earlier when I had grabbed it, I hadn’t even noticed the verse that was on it, but it definitely caught my eye this time: Be still and know that I am God. The Bible verse, Psalm 46:10, is a well-known one. God spoke to me in that moment and somehow it hit me differently this time. When He told me to know-that I can rest assuredly in Him, I felt it. It was like a breath of fresh air. I could breathe and know.

And so can you! We can be still and confident-unmoved when all about us the turbulence of life attempts to throw us around, because He said to be still and know that He Is God. He has it all under control, even when the world rages and life feels out of control. And, for those struggles that pile up and start weighing us down? Let’s not forget to hand over the weight of what we cannot control, to Him.
