In this excerpt from Mornings of Peace in the Presence of God, you'll find words to help you wake to God's strength and grace.
“Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,” says the Lord Almighty. Zechariah 4:6
As you awoke this morning, what was on your mind? Was it the challenges you will face today? Are there problems you need to confront, issues that are too massive for you to handle?
God knows everything that concerns you today. And though you may not be able to conquer the difficulties on your own, God strengthens and enables you to face them by his Spirit.
You don’t have to rely on your own strength and wisdom; God provides his boundless resources to you. No matter what is ahead today, take heart. You will be amazed by what you can accomplish when your work is empowered by God’s Spirit.
Dear God, thank you that the things ahead today are conquerable by your Spirit. Thank you for giving me your strength and wisdom. Amen.
