Psalm 62:5-6 - "Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken."" (NIV)
Strength. We talk so much about being strong in the Lord, but we don't always realize that our strength in Him comes from Him. We all face difficulties in our lives. Stresses abound no matter what age you are or where you are in your life. Yet we all have one place we can turn. We all have God willing to provide us with the strength we need.
I am always surprised when I see the poorest of the poor or the lowest of the low praising God. It is not that they expect God to provide a million dollars or a shiney new car. It is that they find comfort in knowing God is there with them. That there are rewards beyond our existence here on earth. In those people I find inspiration to turn to God when I face my difficult times.
