“You have also given me the shield of Your salvation. Your right hand has held me up. Your gentleness has made me great. Your enlarged my path under me so that my feet did not slip. For You have armed me with strength for the battle. You have subdued under me those who rose up against me” (Psalm 18:35-36, 39).
I used to wonder why Paul claimed that the strength of the Lord becomes more fully known in our times of weakness. The answer to my question came in times of personal exhaustion when I knew that only God could give me the strength I needed to go on. And strengthen me, my friend, He surely did. Often, with more profound results in the ministry than I could’ve produced at the peak of my own strength. Take time to pray and let Him become your strength today.
It’s time to pray.
