“My health may fail, and my spirit may grow weak, but God remains the strength of my heart; He is mine forever.”
Are you feeling at the end of your strength? Is your faith running low and body feeling weak? Well, if that’s you, then it’s ok. We all have days when our faith is stretched. Sometimes we even feel like giving up. Look throughout the Bible, and you will see plenty of examples when men and women of God, had a ‘wobbly day’ and felt faithless and weak. Yet God is faithful. He doesn’t judge us for this but rather scoops down and catches our falling souls in the palm of His hand, dusts us off, showers us in His love, empowers us in His Spirit and strengthens our hearts to keep on keeping on.
When tough times come, when you feel like giving up, know this simple yet life changing truth, ‘GOD remains the strength of your heart’. He is with us and promised to never leave us, even when we feel like He has. He is there. Take courage and strength from this. The writer of this psalm had the confidence to believe so, and so can we know for sure. He is ours forever. Be at peace.
