This beginning of the month welcomes us with more strength and hope. Reconnect your spirit with these selected verses.
“My salvation and my honor depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge.” Psalms 62:7
It is absolutely normal that when we face great responsibilities, we enter into a state of anguish and panic.
It is precisely from this fear that a feeling of detachment from the goals we have set for ourselves in the name of the Lord is generated in the depths of our being. We think that we will not be able to do it, that we are not sufficiently qualified, that whatever our decision is, we will not fulfill the expectations that have been placed in us.
These are moments in which we have the erroneous impression of being alone and adrift because the situation is beyond us. Therefore, it is of vital importance to calm our hearts and remove all doubts by sharing all our problems and challenges with God. We will immediately experience the Peace that we need so much, the disposition and strength to face any challenge, and the mental clarity to reach our goals fulfilling the purposes that the Eternal ha has arranged for our lives.
“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
When we are strengthened in the Glory of Christ, we find the precise answers and the right paths that will lead us to the right port. As we surrender our fears and anxieties to the Lord, we are Blessed with the Courage and Persistence to effectively exercise the actions that have been entrusted to us.
God is our Eternal refuge and when we trust in Him with all our heart, we see how bad situations do not discourage us since our Heavenly Father is the invisible Strength that roots us to His Mercy so that we do not fall. That is why it is important to place all our hopes in the Highest and be receptive to His Perfect Word that will allow us to face any situation that comes our way in life.
“But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” Isaiah 40:31
Even in difficult moments, we may feel that our strength has left us and that we will not be able to overcome the crisis we are going through because we have already given everything we had.
It is true that in the traumatic episodes of life we are more prone to give up, to lower our arms, and to give everything for lost. In these moments of weakness, it is indispensable to remember and, therefore, to seek the Love of Christ with all our heart.
If we trust in God we will not sink into exhaustion. He will lift us up again and urge us to continue our race with new strength and in a positive way.
“My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” Psalms 73:26
Human strength has a limit and that is why we cannot overcome certain episodes of life with our own strength. However, the good news is that by placing all our desires in the Lord's hands we know that we can overcome any situation, no matter how difficult it may be.
Let us allow Him to help us, let us live with joy the great happiness of having His Love. In Him, we can rest to replenish our energies. He is our strength and protective shield.
