Finding Strength in Weakness
In Isaiah God tells us that he created us to make him famous, but how do suffering and weakness fit in? Throughout Scripture God deliberately uses the most unlikely characters to complete his work so that when the mission is accomplished all the glory goes to him. Hard times drive us to our knees, and through desperation we are reminded of God’s faithfulness and his strength is revealed. If we never face fear, how can we know courage? If we never had to weep, we would never know the beauty of having a friend wipe away our tears. God took a teenage girl’s poor decision and turned it into a 50-year mission of love and justice in his name and for his glory.

Too frequently, churches allow fear to stop them from including people with disabilities. But often it only takes a small modification – like a puppet! – to make the love of Christ accessible to all. Joni and Friends would love to help you and your church embrace families with disabilities.

Christmas is a season of enchantment and wonder. Even non-believers sense that there is something special about this time of year – something more than gifts and cookies and decorations. The true beauty of Christmas is that God himself came to rescue us. Share the truth of Christmas with a friend today!

The birth of Jesus was the fulfillment of a long awaited promise. Though many had stopped believing, God did not forget his promise of a Messiah, the Prince of Peace. And God has not forgotten you! Keep trusting him and believing in his promises. His timing is always perfect.

You are the apple of God’s eye! He overflows with joy and love for you, expressed best in the perfect gift of his Son Jesus. Be filled with joy and gladness this Christmas season as you celebrate the gift of Jesus, your Savior.

Much like God spoke to Elijah with a gentle whisper, Jesus arrived quietly, with little fanfare. As you seek the Lord this Christmas, don’t look for him in the bright lights or noisy clamor. Listen for God in the quiet moments. He longs to meet with you!

God’s Word is precious – more precious than gold. Scripture makes you wise and gives joy to your heart. It tells you the right thing to do. The reward is great when you follow God and keep his Word. Look to God’s Word to refresh your soul today!

God loves you with an everlasting love. But his love is not because of anything in you that warrants affection. God’s love for you begins and ends with Jesus Christ. Give thanks today for your blessed Savior, who is quick to forgive, restore and extend his grace.

Learning to be content is not easy. It means making tough choices, persevering through painful circumstances and submitting to God in all situations. But once you gain it, you will never trade your contentment for anything!
December 9, 2020
Many times, God wants you to forgo the companionship of others in order to experience deeper fellowship with him. Only through that solitude with the Lord can you have the strength to serve and give to others. Make time to be with God!
