Joel and Victoria Osteen’s daily devotional May 20, 2016 - Finding Strength
Today’s Scripture: “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, NIV)
Topic: Finding Strength [May 20, 2016]
Do you need strength for today? The scripture tells us that when we hope in the Lord, that’s exactly what we will get—strength! If you’ve grown weary and tired, overwhelmed by the cares of this world, it’s a clear sign that you need to change what you’re putting your hope in. Are you putting your hope in your job? The government? The economy? Another person? All of these things will change. But when you hope in the Lord, you are investing in the Rock of Ages. He never changes! He is the only solid foundation for your soul.
Today, find strength by simply putting your hope in Him. Declare out loud, “God, I place my hope in You. I trust that You are working behind the scenes in my life. I choose to rest in You.” Then, feed your hope and faith by meditating daily on the scriptures. As you renew your mind with the Word of God, you’ll find strength, you’ll find hope, and you’ll find His victory all the days of your life!
A Prayer for Today: “Father, thank You for renewing my strength as I put my hope in You. I declare today that I love You and trust You. I know that You are working behind the scenes in my life. Fill me with Your peace and joy as I wait on You in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
