Think how you have instructed many, how you have strengthened feeble hands. Your words have supported those who stumbled; you have strengthened faltering knees. But now trouble comes to you, and you are discouraged; it strikes you, and you are dismayed. Should not your piety be your confidence and your blameless ways your hope?
When we give advice, encouragement, and support to others we must remember the words, sentiment, and actions delivered so that during our time of need we use what God equipped us with to lift ourselves up. When we praise God to everyone else but then doubt Him in moments of despair, aren’t we being hypocritical and engaging in a conditional relationship with Him?
Let God’s light come in every millisecond of the day. Feel His warmth, love, tenderness, and support. When we live our lives and express love, mercy, and forgiveness the way God intends then we never feel alone, lost, defeated or forsaken.
Father I pray for the strength and confidence to always see and act upon practicing what I preach. I want to be there to uplift and support others through my thoughts, words, and deeds- while remembering those same thoughts and words when I need uplifting and encouragement through rough times.
Father I want Your Word to resonate through me so that my strength always lies in You. Forgive me for those days I waver, get discouraged, feel like giving up and letting life pass me by- I know You know my heart and intentions Lord and I thank You and love You for Your love. Amen.
