Find Strength in God

Immediately after praying to God to save Israel, Isaiah described Israel's distress: the Asyrians rejected their petition for peace, Lebanon was destroyed, and the plains of Sharon resembled a wilderness.

Isaiah's trust in God never faltered, he believed God's promises that He would preserve Israel and deliver His people. Because of this Isaiah could pray with confidence, "Be our strength every morning,our salvation in times of distress.

Like Isaiah, we can depend on God in times of distress and trouble. Call on Him in such times and feel the strength, that only can come from God, descend on you.

Oh Lord, be gracious to us; we long for You. Be our strength every morning, our salvation in times of distress. Isaiah 33:2

Grace for each Moment

-- the key here is believing God's promises. When we believe, we will feel his strength each morning. Today's devotion reminds me of a hymn. Great is thy faithfulness. Powerful lyrics. If you have a moment go visit and read them. Trust me - you will be blessed.
