Strength in the Lord


From our Friend 
Pastor Shaun

Hey friends.  I feel so blessed to be able to write the post tonight while Dana is traveling to South Florida with Devo and the family. 

 

I was reading Psalm 23 last week and a verse stood out to me that I hadn’t really noticed before.  As I read this verse I thought about Devo.

 

Psalm 23:1-3, “The Lord is my shepherd; I have all that I need.  He lets me rest in green meadows; he leads me beside peaceful streams.  He renews my strength.

He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to his name.”

 

The verse that stood out to me was verse 3, “He renews my strength.

He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to his name.”

 

This verse says that God renews our strength for HIS namesake.  That means that God is giving us strength every day and this strength He gives us is to bring glory to his name.  The strength that God gave us this morning is to be used to share His name…to bring honor to His name.

 

When I read this verse I thought about Devo.  Every day Devo is sharing is faith with other people.  I believe that God is giving Devo strength every single day and Devo isn’t taking this strength for granted.  Devo is taking full advantage of this strength so that everyone knows who it is that is giving him strength and healing him. 

 

Devon is embracing God’s healing, God’s strength and God’s power.  Devon is giving credit to the Lord for HIS namesake.
