BIBLE TEXT: Amos 5: 4-6, Mathew 10:38-39, Isaiah 55: 6-7, Zechariah 8: 20-23, MEMORY VERSE: “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” (Jeremiah 29:13) STRENGTH He has infinite power. He fortifies and steadies our way when our knees buckle under the strain, and our hands shake with fright. His strength is most apparent when we are at our weakest.
