Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 10/09/11

This week’s scripture is from Psalms:

“Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart,
All you who hope in the LORD.”
    (Psalms 31:24)

Life can disappoint us. We can strive with all our might and pray with all our heart, yet plans go awry, funds don’t come through, projects fail, healing doesn’t come, people abandon us. Our hearts grow weary and heavy within us. But the LORD does not disappoint us; He does not abandon us, for He is our hope and our salvation; He is our strength against the trials of life, against the wiles of the enemy of our soul. Let us not be discouraged, but be encouraged in the LORD, for He is ever for us; He will never leave us or forsake us. Bless the LORD, praise His holy name. Let hope abound and strengthen your heart.

May the Lord bless you this day with hope, strength, and courage in His name.
