Our Strength

www.istravel.co uk

“Blessed are those whose strength is in you, who have set their hearts on pilgrimage.”  Psalm 84:5 (NIV)

               Blessed: When God blesses us, He smiles on us.

Strength: We sing the chorus, “The joy of the LORD is my strength. (Nehemiah 8:10) Nehemiah prefaces this thought with the simple words, “Do not grieve.” When we become sad, we lose strength. This loss can also happen when we get angry. We become susceptible to all kinds of physical, emotional, and mental conditions.

               “Set their hearts” Those who progress in this world get their goal in their sights and work to achieve that goal. As followers of Christ, we asked Jesus into our hearts and daily strive to live for Him.


               “pilgrimage” Our lives with Christ are individual journeys. Like a pilgrimage, our walk with the Lord leads us to a very special destination—heaven to live with Him.

  1. It's interesting to break this scripture down like this, isn't it? My desire is to continue to set my heart on Him, and walk in His ways. Learning something new all the time! :) Thank you for sharing this today. Have a great weekend!
