Do not strive in your own strength; cast yourself at the feet of the Lord Jesus, and wait upon Him in the sure confidence that He is with you, and works in you. Strive in prayer; let faith fill your heart-so will you be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might.

This truth has kept me though some very long nights and days Deb! 🙂
Thanks for sharing, Pastor J
The casting and the waiting seem opposite to gaining strength, but it is in our weakness that He is made strong.
I love that song! 🙂
It is so true Ann. At moments it seems almost impossible not to take up what should be left in Jesus’ hands but I have found the hour of greatest temptation comes just before the victory!
“Strong in the Lord and in the power of His might” – the only way, for I am weak and useless on my own.
Indeed! Me too! 🙂
