Seek First Project: The Way He Strengthens (Day 43)

“Don’t be afraid,” he said, “for you are very precious to God. Peace! Be encouraged! Be strong!”
As he spoke these words to me, I suddenly felt stronger and said to him, “Please speak to me, my lord, for you have strengthened me.” - Daniel 10:19

God can cause us to suddenly feel stronger. He gives peace freely. He encourages enormously. He strengthens daily.

In the passage above, the prophet Daniel is receiving long-awaited word from a messenger of the Lord. This messenger had been fighting his way to Daniel's side for 21 days! God had dispatched him on the first day that Daniel prayed.

If you haven't felt the rescue, please know that you have not been overlooked.

God still speaks to us today! Through the life of His Son, through the comfort of the Holy Spirit, through the inspired and wondrous bible, His love letter to us.

God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds; who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become so much better than the angels, as He has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.

For to which of the angels did He ever say:
“You are My Son,

Today I have begotten You”?

And again:
“I will be to Him a Father,

And He shall be to Me a Son”? - Hebrews 1:1-5

Today, let's dissect the scripture that started this post, in our journals.
* Copy a scripture that reminds you, "Do not be afraid!"
* Find a verse that tells you how precious you are to God. 
* Choose your favorite passage about peace.
* Write the scripture that encourages you most.
* Finish with a passage that strengthens you.

Have you heard the Lord speak to you? Are you listening?


Speak, O Lord, Your servant is listening. In Jesus' Name, Amen...
