INTRODUCTION

The Lord wants us to be strong in the day of adversity . We should not become discouraged and give up when we face challenges. Our spiritual strength is revealed in the way we cope with adversity. When we are strong in the Lord , we can bear our burdens easily. But if we are weak in our spirit , even a small burden can be too heavy for us. Therefore we must seek to be filled with the strength of God. We must persist and persevere in order to experience the fullness of God’s blessing in our lives.

2. REJOICE

The Lord wants us to rejoice in Him even in times of adversity because the joy of the Lord is our strength.

The presence of God in our lives gives us a great reason to celebrate and rejoice in the Lord . The Lord is a greater treasure in our lives than wealth or wisdom or human strength.

3. RENEW

The Lord wants us to renew our strength daily. Our inner man need not become weak even though our physical body may become weaker as days go by. We should always be strong in our spirit.

4. RECEIVE

The Lord wants us to receive His mercy and grace and favour in our life. The mercy of God causes us to receive favours in our life that we do not deserve. We need not lose heart thinking that we are unworthy to receive the blessings of God. When we understand the mercy of God , we would reach out in faith and receive all the blessings we need in our life. And therefore we need not lose heart or be discouraged because we receive the mercy of God in our lives.
