Depending on His strength

2Tim1.7MON.001

I admire people who stand up for their faith even to the point of arrest or persecution or death. Sometimes I wonder, if faced with the threat of physical harm or imprisonment, would I have the courage to remain strong? This verse gives the answer. When we depend on our own feeble strength, we will likely fall. But if we depend on His strength, we cannot fall. If we are tapped into His Word and have built our spiritual muscles with prayer and communion with Him, on the day our faith is put to the test, our timidity will flee. His power will give us what we need. Prepare, dear Christian, for your day of battle, and trust Him to bring you to victory.
