Monday’s are often the hardest days of all to get motivated; the feeling of all the things we intended to accomplish over the weekend, but did not, leave us with with feelings of inadequacy. The dread of facing another week with a to-do-list that only threatens to increase, brings a weariness that can fill our body with fatigue before we even get started. If we focus on these feelings we will begin the week defeated before the battle even begins. These are the days when we need to turn our focus to “Who He is”, rather than who we are not.
“Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God and there is none like me.” Isaiah 46:9
“For the Lord your God, is He that goeth with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.” Deuteronomy 20:4
“Be strong and of good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the Lord thy God, He it is that doth go with thee, He will not fail thee nor forsake thee.” Deuteronomy 31:6
“Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid; for the Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song: He also is become my salvation. Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the well of salvation.” Isaiah 12:2-3
We need to focus on “Who He is”, drawing joy from the well of salvation for strength and substance; forgetting all of the things we failed to accomplish, realizing that in Him we have all things.
“Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecution’s, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then I am strong.” II Corinthians 12:10
When I am not, He is . . .
