Psalm 31: 23-24 O love the Lord, all ye his saints; for the LORD preserveth the faithful, and plentifully rewardeth the proud doer. Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the LORD.
When my courage seems so small and slips away, when sin seeks to pull me from Your path, Lord, remind me of these verses. I need only trust in You, the One who keeps me safe and brings good things into my life. You reward my feeble efforts and multiply them through Your strength as I simply love You and respond to You in faith.
I want to be strong – in You and for You. Give me courage each day. When evil seems to about and sin distracts me from Your way, thank You that Your ove abounds still more.
