Strength for each Day
Every day brings with it, its share of troubles, heartache, pains, struggles, and disappointments. But when you know who to turn too in the midst of the daily grind, your life takes on a whole new meaning.
Here is what you need to know in order to face the day
- Know that God Is with you
Joshua 1:9 NIV. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”
It is very important that we ask God to take charge of our lives, and all of our daily activities. God will take full responsibility for how things turn out for you that day. Dont blame Him when things go wrong, if you did not give Him permission to have rule over your daily affairs.
- Believe that His Covenant is sure and trustworthy
2 Samuel 7:28 NIV. Sovereign LORD, you are God! Your covenant is trustworthy, and you have promised these good things to your servant.
When God makes covenant with His people, God will be sure to keep His covenant. That is because God is true, and His Word is does not fail. So if He has promised to take care of you, trust Him, He will. He will look after every need.
His promises are sure and reliable.
- You must know His Name
PSALM 9: 10 NIV. Those who know your name trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you.
What does it mean to know His Name?
His Names tell about His Character. Each of the many names of God describes a different aspect of His many-faceted character. Here are some of the better-known names of God in the Bible:
EL, ELOAH: God “mighty, strong, prominent” (Nehemiah 9:17; Psalm 139:19) – etymologically, El appears to mean “power,” as in “I have the power to harm you” (Genesis 31:29). El is associated with other qualities, such as integrity (Numbers 23:19), jealousy (Deuteronomy 5:9), and compassion (Nehemiah 9:31), but the root idea of “might” remains.
ELOHIM: God “Creator, Mighty and Strong” (Genesis 17:7; Jeremiah 31:33) – the plural form of Eloah, which accommodates the doctrine of the Trinity. From the Bible’s first sentence, the superlative nature of God’s power is evident as God (Elohim) speaks the world into existence (Genesis 1:1).
EL SHADDAI: “God Almighty,” “The Mighty One of Jacob” (Genesis 49:24; Psalm 132:2,5) – speaks to God’s ultimate power over all.
These are only a sampling of the Names of God, but each name has drawing power.
- He is healer: He can be called on for healing
- He is Provider: He supplies all of our needs
- He is Strength – He is our strength when we are weak and discouraged.
When you know God at these levels, you can face any day, your trials and test will not in any way off-set your day. So make a conscious effort to involve God at all levels of your daily walk.
Have a great day!
