“The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge.” – Psalm 18:1-2a
“From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.” – Psalm 61:2
“Therefore, everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.” – Matthew 7:24-27
We don’t see the strength beforehand…it comes as we need it, step by step.
And that’s where I rest, in Jesus’ hands, where there is rest and peace and protection.
So many people I know are going through some very difficult times. I find myself praying more and more. I have to have another surgery on my ankle in October. More inactivity, more propping the foot up for hours on end. But also, more time to spend with the One who has all the strength and hope and answers and power. Jesus. Thank God for that.
“God gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.” ~Isaiah 40:29
