Look at that little bear peeking out from behind the tree. Doesn’t he appear to be thinking, “It’s a great big world out there…and I’m not ready to face it!” I’ve had that thought when I’ve read about terrorist attacks or I’ve let myself dwell on the way society continually pushed God aside in deference to self-pleasure. I wonder if I have the strength to live my faith in a world that belittles it and persecutes those who proclaim it. But Philippians 4:13 offers a comforting promise: Through Him, I can do all things. Do you remember what I said on Monday? I am never powerless because I am HIS. Stand strong, dear Christian, and live your faith secure in the knowledge that He will equip you with the strength you need to share Him with this hurting, needy world.
