He makes the crooked places straight

crooked places

 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe.” Ephesians 1:18

Do not let any set of circumstances intimidate you. The more challenging your day, the more of My Power I place at your disposal. You seem to think that I empower you equally each day, but this is not so. The tendency upon awakening is to assess the difficulties ahead of you, measuring them against your average strength. This is an exercise in unreality. -Sarah Young, Jesus Calling

Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always.” Psalm 105:4

I know what each of your days will contain, and I will empower you accordingly. The degree to which I strengthen you on a given day is based mainly on two variables: the difficulty of your circumstances, and your willingness to depend on Me for help. Try to view challenging days as opportunities to receive more of My Power than usual. Look to Me for all that you need, and watch to see what I will do. As your day, so shall your strength be. -Sarah Young, Jesus Calling

The bolts of your gates will be iron and bronze, and your strength will equal your days.” Deuteronomy 33:25

Always guard against self-chosen service for God; self-sacrifice may be a disease. If God has made your cup sweet, drink it with grace; if He has made it bitter, drink it in communion with Him. -Oswald Chambers
