Verse of the Day

2 Corinthians 13: 8-9b

For we cannot oppose the truth, but must always stand for the truth. We are glad to seem weak if it helps show that you are actually strong.

2 Corinthians 13: 8-9b

His Strength Through Us

Standing for truth can often make us weary. It is one of the many things tha brings about weariness in our lives. However, when we stand for truth, we can have access to the strength of God. Have you ever heard someone say to someone fighting a hard battle: “You’re strong. You’ll get through it.” This is actually a lie. We are never strong on our own accord. We have to access His strength. It is only when we recognize our weakness that we can then access His strength. His strength within us can help us fight our battles or stand for truth. It is nothing that we can do on our own strength. Man alone can do nothing because he is but flesh. But man with God’s strength can endure and stand tall because he has the power of God racing through his blood.

So are you trying to rely on your own strength or are you accessing the strength of the Almighty? Do you trust that He will stand with you and help you in times when you feel weary? Spend some time in prayer today, asking Him to reveal His strength to you so you can fight your battles and stand for truth.

A Prayer to Remember

Dear Lord,
It is your strength that can help me fight my battles. Breathe life in my bones so I can fight my battles and stand for truth. You alone are the giver of life. Amen
