Oh how many times do we get depress or discouraged when a situation arises. I know I have many of times. God is forever showing us daily that He is more powerful, more compassionate, and is The Shepherd of those who call on His name.

Many time He sends a word through His people to remind us of His Greatness. This was so true with the children of Israel and we can claim those same words for ourselves. He brings words of home, though we may be weak and we see our oppressors as strong, He is encouraging us to cling to Him.

When we read this scripture we see God’s power and strength.

Isaiah 40:12 (AMP)

Who has measured the waters in the hollow of His hand,

And marked off the heavens with a span [of the hand],

And calculated the dust of the earth with a [a]measure,

And weighed the mountains in a balance

And the hills in a pair of scales?

Back then they didn’t have all the scientific evidence that we do. They could look at creation and see His handy work. But we have more evidence.

Sticking us at the center of a massive sphere, the currently observable universe has a diameter of about 92 billion light years. Even with this observed distance, we know that it extends much further than that. He measured the Heavens with His hand. All the waters in the world He measured in the hollow of His hand.

We can go on and on about creation. But His wisdom is unsearchable. He doesn’t need to be told what is done, for He knows it. He doesn’t need advise, for who could give Him directions? He knows what needs to be done, the right way it needs to be done, & the right time it needs to be done.

His love for us is so big and endless. No one or nothing can take us out of His strong powerful hands.

Romans 8:35, 38-39 (AMP)

Who shall ever separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? 38 For I am convinced [and continue to be convinced—beyond any doubt] that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present and threatening, nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the [unlimited] love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Ephesians 3:18 (AMP)

the width and length and height and depth of His love [fully experiencing that amazing, endless love]…

How wide is His love?: It is as wide as the arms of Christ outstretched on The Cross. Wide enough for everyone and broad enough to pull you into His loving arms.

How long?: His love is an everlasting love. His span reaches for eternities, past and future. There is never a time when He does not love you.

How high?: Look up, higher than all the stars, heaven, and it lifts us up to Him.

How Deep?: Deeper than all the problems, hurt, & pain: deeper than any distress, disaster, & reaches to the depths of our sins, griefs and pulls us out of the deepest pit.

His love is amazing. He will never, never, never leave you or forsake you. When the lies start coming just look up and see His amazing handing work.

Psalm 31:14 (AMP)

But as for me, I trust [confidently] in You and Your greatness, O Lord;

I said, “You are my God.”

Psalm 66:2-4 (AMP)

Sing of the honor and glory and magnificence of His name;

Make His praise glorious.

Say to God, “How awesome and fearfully glorious are Your works!

Because of the greatness of Your power Your enemies will pretend to be obedient to You.

“All the earth will [bow down to] worship You [in submissive wonder],

And will sing praises to You;

They will praise Your name in song.” Selah.

Psalm 86:10AMP)

For You are great and do wondrous works!

You alone are God.

We are more than conquerors because of what Jesus did on the Cross. The truest demonstration of God’s love for us. So what ever you may face today, look up for your redemption in nearer than you think. He overflows with Love for you. Nothing and no-one can take you from His hands.

Father reveal your love for each of us. Open our eyes to this truth. There is so much hurt and pain in this world, show us that your love has reach out through Your Son Jesus to us.

Trust Him today. Receive His love for you today!!!

So many wake up and pray this, “Father give me strength for today”. They have been tired out by the days before and need rest from the trials and burdens of life. God is so faithful. Not only does He promise strength for the day, but He promises strength for everyday.

Deuteronomy 33:25 … as thy days, so shall thy strength be.

As you live today, He will provide strength for the whole day. What ever you may face, He has already provided for the day.

Matthew Henry: “Thou shalt be strong and bright, as iron and brass.” The continuance of their strength and vigor: As thy days, so shall thy strength be. Many paraphrase it thus, “The strength of thy old age shall be like that of thy youth; thou shalt not feel a decay, nor be the worse for the wearing, but shalt renew thy youth; as if not thy shoes only, but thy bones, were iron and brass.” The day is often in scripture put for the events of the day; and, taking it so here, it is a promise that God would graciously support them under their trials and troubles, whatever they were. And so it is a promise sure to all the spiritual seed of Abraham, that God will wisely proportion their graces and comforts to the services and sufferings he calls them out to. Have they work appointed them? They shall have strength to do it. Have they burdens appointed them? They shall have strength to bear them; and never be tempted above that they are able. Faithful is he that has thus promised, and hath caused us to hope in this promise.

There are many scriptures that encourage us for our days ahead.

Habakkuk 3:19 (AMP)

The Lord God is my strength [my source of courage, my invincible army]; He has made my feet [steady and sure] like hinds’ feet And makes me walk [forward with spiritual confidence] on my [a]high places [of challenge and responsibility].

I love these words, source of courage, My invincible army, spiritual confidence…

We must daily remember that He is our source. We must look to Him, not our circumstances or our own strength. Our strength will weaken if we continually look to ourselves. Draw your strength from Him.

Ephesians 6:10(AMP)

…be strong in the Lord [draw your strength from Him and be empowered through your union with Him] and in the power of His [boundless] might.

2 Corinthians 12:10 (AMP)

So I am well pleased with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, and with difficulties, for the sake of Christ; for when I am weak [in human strength], then I am strong [truly able, truly powerful, truly drawing from God’s strength].

I am truly able, I am truly powerful, when I draw from God’s strength. Vs. 9 says “for my strength is made perfect in weakness.” His strength, His Grace, for today, you can trust Him.

Psalm 46:1

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

A very present help. Today, what ever you need He is there NOW. TODAY.

One of my favorite verses is:

Lamentations 3:22-23 (AMP)

It is because of the Lord’s loving kindnesses that we are not consumed,

Because His [tender] compassions never fail. They are new every morning;

Great and beyond measure is Your faithfulness.

Every morning is new. God will provide you strength for today. His mercies and loving kindness is new today. He wants you to trust Him for today. You can’t change yesterday or do anything about tomorrow. You can only live one day at a time.

Hebrews 4:16 (AMP)

Therefore let us [with privilege] approach the throne of grace [that is, the throne of God’s gracious favor] with confidence and without fear, so that we may receive mercy [for our failures] and find [His amazing] grace to help in time of need [an appropriate blessing, coming just at the right moment].

Just at the right moment He will come. He is never late. He is always on time. Call on Him today. You will find His amazing Grace come upon you.
