Strengthened by God

When we pray about something that is deeply burdening our hearts, but do not see tangible results, it’s easy to become disheartened. The longer it goes on, the harder it becomes. Bitterness and discouragement can creep in.

We may respond by emotionally closing ourselves off from God. If the situation is extremely painful, depression may set in. But even when our situation is beyond our ability to endure, God’s strength is always there for us.

The Christian life is a spiritual battle and, quite honestly, our strength is very small. But our God has promised to supply us with His immeasurable strength. <
