A Great Exchange

“I will lift up my eyes to the hillsโ€”From whence comes my help? My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.” Psalm 121:1-2

No matter how much you love God, there are going to be days when you just don’t feel at your best. Along your journey, there will be times when you will feel discouraged. Is this a negative confession? No, that’s life. There are times when the last thing you want to do is dance around and bless the Lord. Thank God we don’t live our lives solely based on feelings, because if we did we would miss out on what God has for us. In our times of weakness, God makes a great exchange within us. When we get before Him in prayer, He takes our weakness and gives us His strength and power. He takes our feelings of doubt and gives us His faith and confidence. He takes our feelings of hopelessness and gives us His hope. That’s why we should never fear coming to God because of how we feel.

My sister, He knows and He wants to perform a great exchange! You may feel down right now and your joy may be so low that it hurts to smile, but God is right there with you to perform a glorious exchange! He is the lifter up of your head! He will turn a miserable pity party into a wonderful Holy Ghost party. Thanks be to God who always causes us to triumph through Christ Jesus no matter how we feel! Glory to God!

Prayer: Father, I give you my weakness and I receive your strength. I give you my feelings of hopelessness and I receive your hope and confidence. Everything I need I receive it now from you. I love you and I praise you for blessing me today with a great exchange. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

  5. Father, it’s because of You that I’m still here and in my right mind. You are my Strength when I feel weak. Because of You, I’m learning to have a heart of gratitude and thankfulness not entitlement. When I started reading this devotional today. This son immediately came to my head:
    Trading My Sorrows
    Iโ€™m trading my sorrows
    Iโ€™m trading my shame
    Iโ€™m laying them down for the joy of the Lord
    Iโ€™m trading my sickness
    Iโ€™m trading my pain
    Iโ€™m laying them down for the joy of the Lord
    Yes Lord, yes Lord, yes yes Lord
    Yes Lord, yes Lord, yes yes Lord
    Yes Lord, yes Lord, yes yes Lord, Amen
    I am pressed but not crushed persecuted
    not abandoned
    Struck down but not destroyed
    I am blessed beyond the curse for His
    promise will endure
    That his joyโ€™s gonna be my strength
    Though the sorrow may last for the night
    His joy comes with the morning!!!
    Father, what an exchange You did for me and this whole world.!! Thank Youโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ
