As we care for ourselves or for a loved one with a chronic illness, often we grow tired and weary. As we tire we should focus on our Heavenly Father. The Lord God will strengthen and renew us as we praise him.

Today’s Bible Verse:

Exodus 15:2 (KJV), “The Lord is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father’s God, and I will exalt him.”

What the verse means:

We get our strength from the Lord. We should praise God. Why should we praise him? We praise him to the honor of God. We praise him to exalt his name. We celebrate his praise. Praise is the Lord God’s only. The praise isn’t to magnify man but to praise the Lord.

Praying using the verse:

  1. We confess that the Lord is our strength and our song;
  2. The Lord is our salvation.
  3. He is our God.
  4. We praise Him and will exalt Him.
