As the people of God assemble today may the hope in our Lord’s Name and presence cause to stand erect those who are bowed under discouragement.
“The Lord upholds all those [of His own] who are falling and raises up all those who are bowed down.” (Ps.145:14, Amp)
Have you ever been so weary that all you wanted to do was let your hands hang down, let your head hang down and flop down on a couch and hope the world would just go away? Then you know the value of an encouraging word or a touch or even just a bit of understanding. It is possible that if we will give strength to someone else and help support their feeble, shaky knees that we will be blessed and strengthened in the doing of such a selfless and thoughtful act. (Isa.35:3-4, GNT) “Give strength to hands that are tired… 4 Tell everyone who is discouraged… God is coming to your rescue.” We are praying you discover daily that you are strengthened and are strengthening others. (Marty’s Daily Discovery as heard on TEXAS PRAISE RADIO at the bottom of the hour 24hrs/day.)
May hope arise within the hearts of weary ones and may dreams be revived in the lives of discouraged ones, and may they lift their hands and declare on clear voices that our God does not forget His covenant or His mercies to a thousand generations. May the Lord do a redeeming work in you that He may bring forth through your life what He intended from the beginning. May He redeem and restore everything that the enemy has tried to destroy in you.
(Deut.4:31, GW) “The LORD your God is a merciful God. He will not abandon you, destroy you, or forget the promise to your ancestors that he swore he would keep.” We are praying you discover daily that merciful God has not abandoned you.
