Finding Strength in God

Finding Strength in God

Do you ever feel at a loss as a leader? When calamity strikes, when you simply don’t see the results you have hoped and worked for, when your challenges seem beyond your ability to overcome, is a constant prayer for strength your daily plea? Person after person in the Bible found their strength in God. Acknowledging their desperate need and personal inadequacy, they exalted God, and chose to rely on Him. As a result, God worked in and through them, empowering them to serve—to lead—in His name.

David was greatly distressed because the men were talking of stoning him; each one was bitter in spirit because of his sons and daughters. But David found strength in the Lord his God. —1 Samuel 30:6

Prayer: O Lord our God, we seek You in the midst of the challenges we face. We pray for our brothers and sisters in Jesus to do the same. Show Yourself strong on our behalf as we exalt You, not our circumstances. In Jesus’ name, amen.
