Vol. 15 No. 10
In this season of football playoffs, you can tune in and watch exceedingly strong men tossing each other around like so many toothpicks. Their strength is remarkable.
Consider the various kinds of strength people have in addition to the strength of their physical bodies:
strength of character,
strength of will,
and strength of conviction.
We have many kinds of strength, yet we also know there are times and situations that appear to demand more strength from us than we have to give.
David wrote, "He [God] rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me" (Ps.18:17 NIV).
God helps those who cannot help themselves!
That is grace.
After God delivered David from his enemies, David sang, "It is God who arms me with strength" (2 Samuel 22:33 NIV).
Trust God to arm you with strength and to sustain and guide you through every situation of your life.
Take a moment to offer to the Lord the strength you do have as your means of serving Him.
Trust Him to serve you and supply you with His strength according to your need.
