You you read this many of you are starting a brand new day, and you don’t have a clue as to what it holds–the good, bad, or ugly. Perhaps you’ve thought about your schedule and you have an idea as to what expect if everything goes as planned, but that’s the problem–it usually doesn’t. The fact is we will all face a challenge of some sort. It might be something new or something you’ve been dealing with for a long time. Your challenge today might be a simple irritation or life threatening. It might involve you alone or others also. Whatever the nature, sort or size of your problem you need help–we all do! You need divine aid. And thankfully it is available. J. R. Miller wrote these encouraging words:
There is a secret of victorious living which, if people knew it, would make all of life easier for them. It may be stated thus: that as we take up any duty and go forward with it, we shall receive the strength we need to do it. There are several Divine promises that give this assurance.
One reads, “As your days — so shall your strength be.” Deuteronomy 33:25. This seems to mean that the help which God gives, varies according to the necessity of the particular day. God fits His blessing — to our days.
When we are faint — He increases strength.
When we are sorrowful — He gives comfort.
When we are in danger — He grants protection.
When we are weary — He gives rest.
“As your days — so shall your strength be.”
Life lies before us, with . . .
It does not come to us all in one piece. God breaks our years — into months and weeks and days, and never gives us more than just a little at a time — never more than we can bear or do for the day.
If we take up the present duty or burden — we shall always have strength to do it. If we do not have strength of our own sufficient for the work or struggle, we need not falter — but should go on, just as if we had omnipotence in our arm; for as we obey God, though the task is impossible to our ability — He will sustain us by giving us all the help we need.
