God, Our Strength and Salvation

“Be our strength each day and our salvation in times of trouble” – Isaiah 33:2


God gives us the strength to get through each day especially if we are experiencing stress and difficulties at our workplace.  A friend of mine is going through a tough time right now where she works but she gets through each day because she is leaning on God.  It is His strength which carries her through.  I can identify.  Many times when I feel drained because I have had a hectic day, I call on the Lord to give me His strength and He does.  I get just enough to get me through the rest of the day.  God invites us to lean on Him.

King David proclaims,”Praise the Lord!  For he has heard my cry for mercy. The Lord is my strength, my shield from every danger. I trust in him with all my heart.  He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy” (Psalm 28:6, 7).

There are times when I feel as if I can’t take the pressure anymore, then, I call out to the Lord.  He hears my cry and answers.  He delivers me.  He is truly my Salvation.  He helps me through troubles, trials and situations that sometimes overwhelm.  Like David, when He helps me my heart is filled with joy.  I feel as if a heavy burden has been lifted.

It is comforting to know that, “The Lord gives His people strength.  The Lord blesses them with peace” (Psalm 29:11).

God gives me the strength I need to get through the day and especially when I am faced with difficult situations, tasks or obstacles.  I always am assured that He would not give me more than I can bear.  He promised, “When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown!  When you walk through fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you.  Do not be afraid, for I am with you” (Isaiah 43:2, 5).
