Sunday Devotional: I have the strength for everything through him who empowers me
Posted on October 11, 2020 by Dr. Eowyn
Philippians 4:1, 4-7, 13
[I]in this way stand firm in the Lord, beloved….
Rejoice in the Lord always.
I shall say it again: rejoice!
Your kindness should be known to all.
The Lord is near.
Have no anxiety at all, but in everything,
by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving,
make your requests known to God.
Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding
will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus….
I have the strength for everything through him who empowers me.
We live in dark times.
Evil seems to grow every day, by the minute.
The upcoming election will, no exaggeration, determine the fate of not just our lives, but the integrity of the U.S. Constitution and the continuation of the American Republic.
So, it is difficult not to fret and, sometimes, even despair.
At this point, only 23 days until Election Day, there is really very little anyone of us can do, other than pray and contribute whatever money we can to the candidates who stand for and will fight for what is right and good.
When Our Lord was suffering on the cross, He abandoned Himself completely to His Father’s will: “Thy will be done.”
We can do likewise.
Close your eyes and say the Surrender Prayer:
“Jesus, I surrender myself to You.
Jesus, You take care of it.
Jesus, I trust in You.
Thy will be done.”
May the peace, strength and love of Jesus Christ our Lord be with you,
