May 21 Life-Changing Moments With God

My brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.

Lord God, Your grace is sufficient for me, for Your strength is made perfect in weakness. Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong. I will go in Your strength, my Lord God; I will make mention of Your righteousness, of Yours only. The gospel of Christ is Your power of salvation.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. I also labor, striving according to Jesus’ working which works in me mightily. I have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of You, Almighty God, and not of me. Your joy, Lord God, is my strength … and I am strengthened with all might, according to Your glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy.

Almighty God, I praise You for sharing Your strength—through Christ—with me that I might glorify You with my life!
