Measured strength.

“I don’t ask God to give me the win; I ask Him for the strength to do my best.” Coco Gauff after winning the 2023 U.S. Open Tennis Championship. In front of the 24,000-person crowd, she dropped to her knees and prayed, a moment many will never forget.

Our strength comes from the Lord. If we faint in the day of adversity, we have lost connection with God. Depending on our might won’t get us far, but relying on the Lord to strengthen us will take us further than we ever thought we could go.

Whether we succeed or fail doesn’t matter as much as doing our best. Knowing at the end of the day, you gave it your all and trusted God to support you matters more than anything else. In life, we will always have adversity. How we approach and meet the trials and tribulations in front of us speaks volumes about our relationship and reliance on God. Seek the Creator for the strength you need to meet the challenges of today. Trust His provision and do your best, leaving it all out on the field at the end of the day.

Lord, thank You for giving us the strength to face our adversities and do our best.  Help us honor and serve You well today as we lean into You for the support we need to fight today’s battles.  IJNIP. Amen
