Strength


With your help I can advance against a troop;
with my God I can scale a wall.
Psalms 18:29

For the children of God it should not be a secret that the strength comes from God. It seems simple to say and to understand, but in practice we forget this great truth and believe the lie that we have been fed since childhood. In practice we ended up relying on our own strengths, skills and resources to address the difficulties that stand in our way. Not surprisingly, then, that from time to time we have to stand up to situations whose only purpose is for us to learn how to trust in God and not in our own strength. Do not let pride keep you from listening to the voice of the Spirit of God leading to all obedience and good behavior. Let us always to consider the purpose of the trial and learn how to depend more and more of God.

That with the help of God we can confront armies does not mean that when we find a closed door on our way we have to tear it down. God opens and closes doors and sometimes, even when our purposes look right, God blocks the way for us to lead us in another direction. He knows better than anyone what is best for us and always will be pointing the way for us to find the path of justice and truth. Do not feel afraid of any difficulties that interfere with our progress in the path to God. As long as we go in the right direction God’s strength will be supporting us to overcome all that opposes us. To God alone be the glory!
