The Bible says, “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble” (Psalm 46:1). When we have no strength, we should cast all our cares upon the Lord, and He will sustain us (Psalm 55:22). God promise that He would give us strength to get through the pit falls and challenges in this life. Therefore, we should be strong and take heart, and place our hope in the LORD (Psalm 31:24).
The Lord Jesus said, “I am with you always, to the very end of the age” (Matthew 28.20). If we “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to your” (Matthew 7:7). The Lord God gives us the strength to do whatever He gives us to do for His praise, honor, and glory.
John 16:33 says, “In this world you will suffer; but be courageous, for I have overcome the world!” (John 16:33). Lord God, we can always trust in Your faithfulness toward doing what is always best for us. For we know that all things will work together for good for those who love You and those who are called according to Your purpose (Romans 8:28). God will give His best to those who leave the choice with Him. Therefore, “Be strong and of good courage; for the LORD Your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you” (Deuteronomy 31:6).
