Be strong!

All are likely to become “weak” or “dejected” at some point of time in their lives. Many people, when they reach the peak of their desperation, even contemplate to end their lives. But if only such people would look up to the Lord Jesus Christ who has the power to give them strength and set them free even at that time and pray to Him, He would surely give them power and increase their strength. He says, "Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” (Deuteronomy 31:6). So how much we should trust the Lord to make a way when we see no way and how much we should trust God to draw us out of our desperation. Are you afraid of the tasks you have to undertake at work or the people who are against you to bring you down? God says He will fight them for you. He will do all things for you.

Though the head of a family worked very hard, he could not get any promotion. So, he had to struggle very much to maintain his family expenses with his insufficient income. One day, he was sitting alone in his home feeling very desperate and dejected. At that time, a man passing by his house was carrying a small transistor radio in his hand. The Tamil song, “The Lord will wipe away your tears and guard you like the apple of His eye” was being aired at that time. So, he called that man and made him sit next to him and heard that whole song which was followed by a message by Bro. Dhinakaran. His words gave much comfort and consolation to his broken heart and the man with the radio also explained to him how he too had received the love of God in his life. This immediately inspired the head of the family to surrender his life to the Lord. He received the power and strength of God and his desperate situation changed and he was blessed by the Lord.
In the Bible too we see the life of Gideon. He was a fearful man. Yet God calls him a man of valor. God says to him, "Go in the strength you have and save Israel out of Midian's hand. Am I not sending you?" (Judges 6:14). Yes, God is all we need beside us to do the impossible. God assures you today that the strength you have is enough. He says to you, "So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand" (Isaiah 41:10). With God's strength you will run and not grow weary, you will walk and not grow faint (Isaiah 40:31).
Prayer:
Loving Father,

You are my strength. I love You for You will never leave my side. Grant me Your divine grace so that I can hold fast to You without giving place for any worries. Abide with me in times of crisis and fill me with Your divine power. In the mighty name of our Lord Jesus I pray, O Father, Amen.
