If you are feeling uncertain today about decisions you need to make; or, maybe you feel that your strength is already gone, be encouraged by these words:
“And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me” (2 Corinthians 12:9).
It is comforting to know that when we are weak, that the Lord is strong, and mighty in battle. We may be fighting a battle, today, but we will be victorious. I can see that the Lord is in complete control of our situation. It is in his plan for us so that he will get the glory. When we get to the other side of this pandemic, people will know that Jesus Christ has never failed us.
He is directing our steps, because in spite of rules and confusion, we have chosen to keep being Christlike and living a testimony. When the world chooses to be afraid, we can know, as it tells us in 2 Timothy 1:7:
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
By taking this stance when we see a weary cashier who is forced to wear a mask to keep a job, we can be the one who shows compassion instead of contempt, because the attitude we display, could be the only time that they will see that Jesus’ loves them.
When all hope is lost as a result of the stress that is caused when we are thrown out of our routines, we can look to Psalm 121:
I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
2 My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.
3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.
4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.
6 The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
7 The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.
8 The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.
In this week’s Lattereign we find that we have been chosen to carry the Name. (Click on the link and it will open up in a new window). Who is this King of Glory?
