Our strength…

How would you feel being the world’s strongest person? Are you weak? From where do you get your strength and help in the situations of daily life? Is your strength depleted? Who is your strength? Well I am glad to let you know that God supplies strength! His perfect strength is given in our weakness. His unfailing love and grace keep us going.

What power do we have of own? What strength can you boast of? All power belongs to Him. That is why our search should be for the Lord, and for His strength. We should always turn our hearts and minds to Him and be positioned for His provision. That He may be glorified through Jesus Christ in every aspect of our lives.

I’ll take this opportunity to share with you this morning a hymn of Charles Wesley. I’d love it very much if you would give attention to and ponder over these words as you read.

Captain of Israel’s host, and Guide
Of all who seek the land above,
Beneath Thy shadow we abide,
The cloud of Thy protecting love;
Our strength, Thy grace, our rule, Thy Word;
Our end, the glory of the Lord.

By Thine unerring Spirit led,
We shall not in the desert stray
We shall not full direction need
Nor miss our providential way;
As far from danger as from fear,
While Love, almighty Love, is near.

We’ve no abiding city here,
but seek a city out of sight;
thither our steady course we steer,
aspiring to the plains of light;
Jerusalem the saints’ abode,
whose founder is the living God.

God bless you for reading…
