Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.
We are not always good at waiting, it’s just our nature. We get impatient, frustrated, and start to doubt God’s will in our lives. But we need to be confident in God’s goodness. We need to wait on the Lord’s timing, hope in his mercy, and believe in his promises!
Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.
Live a less self-centered life by focusing more on God and by being kind to others. Humility doesn’t mean being weak, it’s actually the opposite. It’s being so strong in your faith that you are obedient to God’s Word no matter the circumstances.
May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us — yes, establish the work of our hands.
Ask God to bless the work of your hands so that you may be fruitful and productive. Ask him to help you enjoy your work so you can see him glorified in all aspects of your job. And when your work is demanding, pray for strength and a good attitude.
Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
Keep doing what the Lord has called you to do and do it with all of your heart. God will equip you and strengthen you to accomplish your purpose. The Lord sees everything you do and he won’t forget the love you demonstrate to his people, nothing you do for him is a waste of time or effort.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Every now and then I have one of those days when I feel so tired that everything just hits me all at once. I just feel like climbing into bed and sleeping for a week but I know I can’t. I have too many responsibilities to take care of. So, I close my eyes and ask God to give me strength to make it through the day and I remind myself that I CAN do all thing through Christ who strengthens me.
She is clothed in strength and dignity; and laughs without fear of the future.
Carry yourself with the strength and power that comes from the Lord. Strength to make decisions in your life that honor God. Live each day with integrity and righteousness knowing that God will supply all your needs until you rejoice with Jesus for all eternity.
But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded.
We all have times when we feel discouraged and we feel like giving up. If the Lord has put a “work” in your heart he will make a way for you to do it. That doesn’t mean it won’t be hard, because it might be, but that’s okay because God is on your side. Be strong and don’t give up!
