To be strong in the Lord means to make Him your power source.
Depend upon His strength to get you through the day when you feel like you do not have the strength to blow your nose.
Depend upon His power to stand up and speak with wisdom and grace when you see or hear something morally wrong.
Depend upon His power when someone is annoying you so bad you want to strangle them.
Depend upon His strength when you see someone intentionally doing something that will hurt them and they ignore your warning. Especially, if this is a repeated habit ( I have learned to just walk away and tell them their is a reward for their arrogance and stupidity . I do not want to see the disaster or hear them blame everyone but themselves ).
Depend upon His strength and power when temptation is overwhelming you.
Can you think of any other times to call upon the Lord?
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Elohe Mauzi (Psalms 43:2 GOD of My Strength ) for blessing me with Your Divine power and strength to stand up and defend the weak and to defeat the tempter. I praise You in the name of He who had the strength to suffer on that bloody cross and the power to resist the tempter, Jesus Christ. Amen
May you have a grateful heart towards He who has given so much to you. indeovi vas ( may you live with Jesus in Latin )
Seleh- stop and think about it.

Give the gifts that are right and good, and trust in the Lord. Psalms 4: 5 The Holy Bible The New Life Version
We need to depend upon The Holy Spirit to guide us to give the proper gifts to the proper men and women.
We need to offer the needy jobs not free lunches and give them money to blow on booze and drugs ( I see it a lot ).
Teach them to be contributing members of society not leeches.
Teach them to have self respect.
It is hard to do and we need to depend upon the Lord to provide the resources to accomplish this as well as the wisdom, strength and patience.
Believe me though it is well worth the effort to see somebody straighten their lives around. The change is incredible.
We need to give but we must give wisely. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Oh please my loving Jehovah Jireth (Genesis 22:14 The LORD Shall Provide ) please always send The Holy Spirit to guide me on where best to invest my resources to help those in need and by extension guide them unto You. Please protect me from wasting these precious resources on those who do not appreciate them nor are willing to help themselves. I humbly request this in the name of He who only took time to help the needy that respected Him and His gifts of healing, Jesus Christ . Amen
