The Source of Strength

Everyone has a certain amount of fortitude, but human capacity can carry a person only so far. Some situations sap every drop of energy we have and demand still more. When we can’t take another step, Christ will carry us through.

The Nature of Discouragement

Are you stuck in the throes of discouragement? If so, the Lord wants to lift your spirits. Let Him help you out of that lowly state: Start by believing that the Father wants to encourage you and get your life back on track with Him.

Faith Manifested in Courage

God may not be calling you to a dangerous battle or a life-threatening situation, but eventually, we will all face calls to step out of our comfort zones.

Strength In Weakness

Strength in Weakness

Paul embraced suffering. His inability to rid himself of the “thorn” (whatever it was) or avoid difficult circumstances showcased God’s power working in and through him. Paul preached the gospel, but God was doing the work of saving sinners and building churches. It was God who was strong.

Christian Courage

Christian courage is the willingness to say and do the right thing regardless of the earthly cost because God promises to help you and save you on account of Christ.

Taking Challenges One Day At A Time

Remember that God will give you the grace to do what you need to do today, so it’s important to focus on living in the moment, rather than worrying about tomorrow.

Why We Don’t Lose Heart

We “look” at these unseen things through the gospel. We strengthen our hearts — we renew our courage — by fixing our gaze on the invisible, objective truth that we see in the testimony of those who saw Christ face to face.

The Holy Spirit | Our Strengthener

When we don’t have anyone but God to get us through something, He can use it to make us stronger in Him, and then He can use us to do greater things than we ever imagined we could do.

Cross the Finish Line

If you have been tempted to give up—don't. If you don't finish the thing you're currently involved in, you will face the same challenges with the next endeavor.

The Refreshing Relief of Rejoicing

Today, are you bearing life-altering burdens? Are you afraid one more struggle — one more small-hair of a problem — will break you? Do you feel buried beneath the load wondering if anyone cares or even notices? Take courage, dear one, Jesus knows and Jesus cares. He holds the power to ease your burdens. He holds the key to your strength during difficult days. You can rely on Him when troubles come.
