Strength Beyond Measure


Much of the day ahead will be manageable routine. Things you’ve done scores of times before. But there will also be surprises. Demands you weren’t expecting. Situations that may call for wisdom and strength beyond your own resources. An emotional or spiritual 911 call.

Rest assured! When you call, you have a sure and certain responder. One who is tested and proven. “God is…a very present help in trouble.” (Psalm 45:1) He is ready to help when we need him. He is a source of strength beyond our own. He is wisdom beyond our learning. Compassion when ours is exhausted. Tenderness when we have reached our limit. Peace to calm our troubled spirit. Regardless of the circumstances, in spite of seemingly insurmountable pressures…

Lord, you are present! You are the inexhaustable source of my strength.
