Through difficult days and challenges, I turn to verses like the one from Exodus below. These truths from God’s word remind me that God is my strength and defender. He has provided salvation through His son, Jesus Christ. My father was a strong man of faith, and I particularly like this verse because it reminds me how my father began a legacy of faith for my family.
The Lord is my strength and my defense, He has become my salvation. He is my God, and I will praise him, my father’s God, and I will exalt him. ~Exodus 15:2
Have a great weekend. Enjoy the beautiful weather!
