How to stay Strong

How do you stay strong ... Joel states it perfect for me:)

Meditate on Him
Today's Scripture
“Sing to Him, sing praises to Him; meditate on and talk of all His marvelous deeds and devoutly praise them” (Psalm 105:2 AMP).
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
When you meditate on God’s Word and His marvelous deeds, it will change you! It will begin to drive out old, negative thoughts and fill you with His strength and power. How does that happen? Imagine that you are holding a glass of dirty water in your hand. It’s full of all kinds of particles, sand and dirt. If you were to pour fresh, clean water into that glass continually and just let it overflow, eventually all the dirty water would be gone. All you would have left would be the pure, clean water. And you wouldn’t have to really do anything to get rid of the dirty water except allow the new, clean water to flow. Your mind is cleansed and renewed in the same way. If you’ll get into the habit of putting in the right thoughts–thoughts of faith, thoughts of victory, thoughts of praise—then before long, your mind is going to be transformed and renewed. You’re going to find yourself positive, hopeful, strong and courageous. You’ll see God’s hand of blessing and increase, and you will live the abundant life He has in store for you!
A Prayer for Today
Heavenly Father, I humbly submit my mind to You. I choose to meditate on You and Your promises so that You can cleanse and renew my mind. Thank You for working in me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
