“Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong.” (1 Corinthians 16:13)
Christ has made every provision for us to be strong. He has given us His Holy Spirit, whose is to bring to our remembrance all the promises that Christ has made, that we may have peace and a sweet sense of forgiveness. If we will keep our eyes fixed on the Saviour, and trust in His power, we shall be filled with a sense of security; for the righteousness of Christ will become our righteousness. . . .
We dishonor Him by talking of our inefficiency. Instead of looking at ourselves, let us constantly behold Jesus, daily becoming more and more like Him, more and more able to talk of Him, better prepared to avail ourselves of His kindness and helpfulness, and to receive the blessings offered us.
“Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day.” (2 Corinthians 4:16)
As we live in communion with Him, we grow strong in His strength, a help and a blessing to those around us. If we would only do as the Lord desires us to, our hearts would become as sacred harps, every chord of which would sound forth praise and gratitude to the Redeemer sent by God to take away the sin of the world. . .
“Do not strive in your own strength; cast yourself at the feet of the Lord Jesus, and wait upon Him in the sure confidence that He is with you, and works in you. Strive in prayer; let faith fill your heart-so will you be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might.”
Heavenly Father, thank you for all the wonderful blessings you have put in my life. Family, friends, a roof over my head, and food on my table. Thank you for the blessings you give me every day. I am so grateful for all that you provide. I try hard, Lord, not to stumble in my walk with you. Today I ask for your strength. Your guidance. I cannot make my walk alone, Lord, and I know you are there to take my hand when I need you most. I know you are there to carry me when I cannot go on alone. I ask for that strength, Lord. I ask for your will and your way. I ask for the strength you had in facing the Enemy in the desert. Thank you, Lord, for being here for me when in my hour of need. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
