Lent 2017 – Day Thirteen
“God remains the strength of my heart” is such a powerful declaration that everyone needs to make or say all the time. Why do I say that? Well, the heart plays a critical role in your body. In fact, the reason you are alive is because your heart is functioning properly – your heart is beating properly and circulating blood around your body for your other organs to work. If your heart stops then you are dead. Thus, if God is the strength of your heart then it means God is at the centre of your very existence. He is in the middle of everything that causes you to exist. And not only that, He strengthens your existence through His power. The full verse is even more beautiful. It states: “My health may fail, and my spirit may grow weak, but God remains the strength of my heart; He is mine forever.” This verse reminds us to always trust in the Lord because He is faithful.
