Strength for the Day
But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint (Isaiah 40:31, NIV).
Every Christian has to consider whether he or she would be willing to suffer for, even die for, Jesus. For me, though, being willing is not the tough question. My fearful question is: would I actually be able to? I always find hope in the fact that God promised that He would always be with us. When we come to Christ, He fills us with His Spirit, and that Spirit of the Lord will be sufficient in the day of the crisis. He does not give us strength for tomorrow’s crisis today. He gives us strength for today’s crisis today.
It’s understandable that each of us would gulp and say, “I hope I am willing,” and then wonder deep inside if we really would be. Well, I want you to know, as cowardly, weak, and selfish as I am, I know I could not do that in my own strength. But I’m going to trust that the power of the Holy Spirit would give me strength in that moment of crisis—strength that I just can’t imagine having today.
