Below is a devotional scripture reading from the February 3rd entry of Daily Light For Your Daily Path by Samuel Bagster.
“Be strong … work, for I am with you, declares the LORD of hosts.”
“I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.” ♦ I can do all things through him who strengthens me. ♦ Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. ♦ “The joy of the LORD is your strength.”
Thus says the LORD of hosts: “Let your hands be strong, you who in these days have been hearing these words from the mouth of the prophets.” ♦ Strengthen the weak hands, and make firm the feeble knees. Say to those who have an anxious heart, “Be strong; fear not!” ♦ And the LORD turned to him and said, “Go in this might of yours.”
If God is for us, who can be against us? ♦ Therefore, having this ministry by the mercy of God, we do not lose heart.
And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. ♦ But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
