Learning to Defer


As we live with a chronic illness we learn many lessons. One lesson is learning to defer.

Today’s Bible Verse:

Isaiah 40:29 (KJV), “He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.”

What the Verse Means:

As Believers in Jesus Chris, we experience his presence and power during our daily living. When we are tired, he provides us with the power we need for the daily challenges. When we are weak, Christ Jesus increases our strength where we have what is needed.

Praying Using the Verse:

  1. Heavenly Father, help Miss Benita to modify her activities to fit your needs and get the rest she needs.
  2. Lord, help Miss Benita to count on God’s strength to replace her weakness.
  3. We pray for your favor for her with her customers and bosses as she works on Wednesday. Help her to have the strength she needs for the day.
