August 20 – Daily Strength for Daily Needs

_Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord_.–PS. xxvii. 14.
_He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might He increaseth strength_.–ISA. xl. 29.

Leaning on Him, make with reverent meekness His own thy will, And with strength from Him shall thy utter weakness Life’s task fulfil.
J. G. WHITTIER.
Should we feel at times disheartened and discouraged, a confiding thought, a simple movement of heart towards God will renew our powers. Whatever He may demand of us, He will give us at the moment the strength and the courage that we need.
FRANÇOIS DE LA MOTHE FÉNELON.
We require a certain firmness in all circumstances of life, even the happiest, and perhaps contradictions come in order to prove and exercise this; and, if we can only determine so to use them, the very effort brings back tranquillity to the soul, which always enjoys having exercised its strength in conformity to duty.
WM. VON HUMBOLDT.

Verse of the Day

No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it. — 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NKJV)
