Learning to deal with a chronic illness includes learning to defer. As we live with a chronic disease, we learn many lessons. One lesson is learning to defer.
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 Christ, we experience his presence and power during our daily living. When we are tired, he provides us with the energy we need for the daily challenges. When we are weak, Christ Jesus increases our strength where we have what is required.
Pray Using Scripture
- Heavenly Father, help me modify my activities to fit your needs and get the rest I need.
- Lord, help me to count on God’s strength to replace my weakness.
- I pray for your favor as I work. Help me to have the strength I need for the day.
