Filled with Power

Mustard Seeds

It’s one of those days. You know the kind. The days where you really want to curl up into a ball on the bed and cry, but you don’t because you know it won’t change anything (and will probably give you a headache and make you feel worse). Instead you choke back the tears, keep going, and cry out to God for HELP!

The girls played outside. I grabbed my Kindle, walked around outside praying Isaiah 12:2, saying over and over, “I will trust and not be afraid.” I took some deep breaths and began reading my Bible in 90 Days reading plan on the Kindle. As I read Micah, I came across this verse:

“But as for me, I am filled with power,
with the Spirit of the LORD,
and with justice and might . . . .”

Micah 3:8 (NIV1984)

I read it, then read it again, and a third time. I have gone back to it many times this afternoon. When I read it, I stand up straighter, hold my chin up, and realize that I’m a victor! Because of Him, I am not defeated, regardless of my current circumstances. My Daddy God already has it all worked out. Even the tough, yucky stuff is going to turn out for my good.

If that doesn’t lift your mood, what will?

What verses do you turn to when you need a reality check?

  1. A verse in Colossians that says, I am hidden in Christ. I love that he enfolds me :)

    Isaiah 40:29 He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. This lets me be weak. I don’t have to be strong all the time. I can just be me- on that day- and let Him fill me with strength. Enough to get through. Blessings!

  3. I have 2 verses that God has used continually in my life these past 18 years or so:
    “the joy of the Lord is your strength”
    “some boast in chariots and some in horses but we will boast in the name of the Lord our God”

    Hmm… I’d love to reference a verse for you but the truth is most of the time I usually do just curl up into a ball on the bed and cry, even though I know it won’t change a thing and give me a headache. But it’s true, crying does give you a headache, I thought maybe it was just me… :)

    • It’s definitely not just you, Tricia! I always get a headache when I cry. Truthfully, I think I should cry more often. I think it would help me relieve some tension and stress!
