But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:19)
"Into every life a little rain must and will fall." Thus, the saying about life's challenges and hardship. There are storms that will lurk literally and figuratively throughout our lives. And, sometimes a life challenge will require enormous strength in order to get through it. Strength that as humans we cannot achieve if not for the Holy Spirit who provides the supernatural fundamentals in order for us to achieve and survive each storm we encounter.
Jesus Christ and His power are released when we acknowledge our weakness and submit to Him and accept His help. When we surrender, we can and will endure suffering and adversity while maintaining and preserving internal joy and His perfect peace.
When the ground is extremely dry you can see virtual cracks in the foundation. When we strive to do things on our own it's our "foundation" that'll crack and dry up. We need the life force of our Lord to keep it from crumbling around us. Our souls are like the soilwe need to keep it watered and nourished. We need His living water to sustain and nourish us allowing us to thrive.
Turn to Him every day, acknowledge His greatness and give Him praise and glory continuously. Seek His face daily and accept Him openly. God can't promise that we won't experience sadness and loss or hard timesbut He does promise that He'll uphold us with His right hand of righteousness, and He will bring us through it every single time.
"Father, thank You for Your hands of grace and for Your continuous love and patience. I am nothing without You and I live to please You, I love You...in Jesus name, Amen."
