Today’s Bible Verse
“I can do anything through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13)
Life is full of ups an downs- some times we don’t know where to look for assurance and help. Look on Christ just like the disciples looked on Christ when their boat was in tornados in the see of Galilee. He will strengthen you to over come the challenges. The power we receive in union with Christ is sufficient to do his will and to face the challenges that arise from our commitment to doing it. Trust in God.
Helen Keller (1880-1968) lost her hearing and sight at 19 month of age. But she traveled all over the world, wrote number of books and inspired millions of people . According to an American writer Theodore Zeildin, ”No history of the world can be complete which does not mention Mary Helen Heller…. where over coming of her blindness and deafness” She once remarked “ I seldom think about my limitations, and they never make me sad’. When she was in Athens she said about her teacher Sullivan” The climb up to acropolis symbolized the difficulties Teacher and I had over come together and I was spiritually strengthened to ascend a metaphorical acropolis in my work for the blind.”
Un foreseen presence of the creator will strengthen us in our ups and downs in our life. Like St Paul let us say I can overcome all my difficulties.
Wish you a day of victory
Lord, in our un-explainable sorrows and tears you are with us. You wipe our tears. We pray to you to help us to overcome all the difficulties in our life. All we ask in the name of Jesus.
