Morning Thought: Your heavenly Father does not want to leave you in a weakened and defeated state. Remember the cross was not the end of Jesus’ story. Three days later came the resurrection, sealing his victory and ours. When God’s writing your story weakness is turned to strength and loss is converted into triumph. Let the Lord strengthen you today. It’s not the end; it’s the beginning of life eternal. “Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you; Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand” (Isaiah 41:10).
