Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 01/08/17

This week’s scripture is from 2 Corinthians:

Jesus Christ 4But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”  (2 Cor. 12:9)

We are not always as strong as we would like to be spiritually. Often we stumble or fall; or sometimes we simply have not the strength to rise to the occasion in the spirit. We don’t always pray as we should or worship as we should. We can fail to put God first in our lives. At times it seems as if we are hampered by spiritual forces fighting against us, by spirits of the world, the flesh, and the devil. Yet it has pleased the Lord to use the weak things of earth to make His power known, for it is by His grace and His grace alone that we can call on His name, that we can stand before the storms of darkness, that we can speak His name and proclaim His salvation to a dying world, for it is in His grace and love that we find strength.

May the grace of the Lord be your strength.
