“He gives power to the weak; and to [them that have] no might he increases strength. (Isaiah 40:29)
The world has been forced to slow down during the COVID-19. I have followed the instructions of our leaders for the most part. However, I chose to take a part time job on March 17. When the world stopped, working, I went to work. (Odd how God works.) It is a small project that needs to be completed by May 1. I work from home, eight hours Monday and Tuesday and a half day on Wednesday. It has changed my world just a bit. I actually have more responsibilities and am busier in some ways than before “the corona.”
Yesterday, Thursday, I planned to clean house all day. However, after making an 8 am run to the grocery, I was done. I hit a brick wall. I was tired and my head was cloudy. I chose to rest instead. Truth be told, all groceries were not put up until 4 pm. I. WAS. DONE!
I got up today feeling about the same. I determined the house was going to get cleaned. My body was telling me a different story. BUT GOD…I start every day by sitting at the feet of Jesus, spending time in His word, praying, reading my favorite devotionals and seeking what our Father has to say.
Our Daddy is the Great Physician. This morning I got “just what the Doctor had ordered” for me!
One of the very last things that appeared in one of my devotions this morning: “He giveth power to the faint, weak, weary; and to [them that have] no might he increases and gives a multitude of strength.” It was my “prescripture” or prescription for the day. I took it and I immediately felt energized. I will take this Word as often as needed today. I will recite and believe. I got the power!
If I had not sought THE DOCTOR, I would not have gotten my pre-script, His script, His word, for me today. What do you need today? Your pre-scripture is probably different than mine. You have to go to the doctor to get the prescription. Seek Him. You will find Him. He promises, “But my God shall supply all your needs according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19)
I enCOURAGE you to go the Doctor, the Great Physician. He will give you “just what the Doctor has ordered” for your today. I guarantee if you “take as directed,” you will feel better. What did he prescribe you today? What is your prescritpure? (Share your prescripture in the comments! It might be the medicine someone else needs.)
