The Greatest Resource

Description

When faced with a problem, seek God first before relying on your own strength. He is your greatest resource.

Nahum 2:1

"He who scatters has come up before your face. Man the fort! Watch the road! Strengthen your flanks! Fortify your power mightily." NKJV

Tests and trials are a part of life and often push us to our limits in many ways. During these times, what do you turn to? Do you first run to others seeking those who feel the same way you do? Do you find yourself to be anxious because you are constantly looking down the road of life waiting for the next attack? Maybe you run to your money or addiction to seek answers or comfort. Whatever the case may be, the truth is, when we do not run to God first, we will not last long.

As followers of Christ, we have the greatest resource of wisdom and power available to anyone. He is our Father God and He desires to help us in times of need. We may be able to hobble along on our own wisdom and strength for a time, but when we trust in the Lord's strength and His infinite wisdom, we will never grow weary. Friend, today you will encounter difficult situations. Don't be surprised by them but simply use them as an excuse to draw closer to God. Need wisdom? Ask the Father. Desire strength? Find it in Jesus.

Life Lesson: When faced with a problem, seek God first before relying on your own wisdom or strength.

Dear God,

Thank You for Your generous love for me. I am so grateful that I can run to You in times of need and You will hear my cry. Father, I ask for Your strength and wisdom today. No matter where I find myself I ask that You would guide my steps and use me for Your purposes. In Jesus' name, Amen.
