It seems like I keep running into people that are stepping back from commitments because they are overwhelmed and have too much on their plates. While I think we can all get ourselves overcommitted pretty fast and we do need to make sure our priorities are in check, I also wonder if we are worrying too much about tomorrow and not relying on God's strength to get us through each day. This morning I read in my Jesus Calling Devotional by Sarah Young.
"DO NOT LET any set of circumstances intimidate you. The more challenging your day, the more of My Power I place at your disposal. you seem to think that I empower you equally each day, but this is not so. Your tendency upon awakening is to assess the difficulties ahead of you, measuring them against your average strength. This is an exercise in unreality. I know what each of yours days will contain, and I empower you accordingly. The degree to which I strengthen you on a given day is based mainly on two variables: the difficulty of your circumstances, and your willingness to depend on Me for help. Try to view challenging days as opportunities to receive more of My Power than usual. Look to Me for all that you need, and watch to see what I will do. As your day, so shall your strength be.
EPHESIAN 1:18-20, PSALM 105:4, DEUTERONOMY 33:25"
I just love Psalm 105:5, Seek the Lord and his strength; seek his presence continually!
