Victorious through Him
Jesus, me, and my "300 men" of energy and strength!!
Last night, as I fell into bed and plopped my head on the pillow, all I could do was smile. A very hard day, yes. A "done" day, yep! But, it was a day where I talked to the Lord much, more than I had been lately. And, it was a day I needed Him frequently all day long...
So, that You would rely on My strength and not your own, Stephanie.
With His strength, I got out of bed. I did a multitude of things and made it through the day with the Lord's Presence, and only 300 men.
Sweeping the floor... asking for God's strength.
Feeling sick... asking for God's healing.
Cleaning the kitchen, folding the laundry... asking for God's Presence.
Forgiving others... asking for God's mercy.
Feeling hurt feelings... asking for God's perspective.
Schooling the children... asking for God's wisdom and energy.
Teaching a class... asking for God's Presence, His Word, His Power.
My Brother Jesus carried and strengthened. He fought and worked. He never grows weary!
We conquered! Me and my 300 men... and my God! I boast today in God's amazing strength, His endurance, His Presence and His mercy! (Judges 7:2) I was done yesterday. God wasn't. He carried and He conquered. How do I even say Thank you, Lord. My eyes are on You, my God! (2 Chron. 20:12)
