Today's scripture: Isaiah 9:6
Do you feel weak? Out of control?
Do you feel powerless as you hear of friends with cancer, read of starving
children, watch news reports of terrorist attacks?
Do you look at this world and wonder who’s winning the battle?
I hate to be the bearer of even more bad news, but you are weak. You are out of
control. You are powerless. And sometimes the enemy does win some battles.
But the good news? Or should I say the great news? Our Lord Jesus is our Mighty
God. And we know that “greater
is He who is in you than he who is in the world” (1 John 4:4).
He is indeed mighty, powerful, omnipotent. Just resonate with some of these
assurances of our Savior’s might:
“Who is the King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, The LORD mighty
in battle” (Psalm 24:8).
“For who in the skies is comparable to the LORD? Who among the sons of the mighty is like the LORD”? (Psalm 89:6).
“More than the sounds of many waters, Than the mighty breakers of the sea, The LORD on high is mighty” (Psalm 93:4).
"How great are His signs And how mighty
are His wonders! His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom And His dominion is from
generation to generation.” (Daniel 4:3).
If you’re struggling, feeling as if the weight of the world is on your
shoulders, remember your Mighty God. Your Savior will help you carry your
burden (Matthew 11:30). His shoulders are more than strong enough.
