29 He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength.
Today’s Inspiration: The global crisis had brought a lot of fear to the Nations but we ought to question ourselves if we believe in God’s sovereign power. He gives power to the weak and to those who have no might He increased strength. Isaiah 40:29. Whatever the circumstances, Apostle Paul encouraged us that our strength lies in Christ alone. Philippians 4:13.
To be anxious for nothing is God’s desire for us. Instead of anxiety, we must make our request known to God in prayer and supplication with Thanksgiving. Philippians 4:6. Allowing Christ access to our spirit will bring peace to our soul that surpasses all natural understanding to guard out hearts and mind through Christ Jesus. V7. This peace is what we need at this time of uncertainty and turmoil which every nation is facing, which can only be attained from Christ Jesus our Lord. Jesus also told us that we should not worry in Matthew 6:31. For our heavenly Father knows we need things to survive and will indeed supply even before we ask. V8. We just need to seek First the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all the things we require will be added to us. V33. He ended His teaching with the word again not to worry about our future. Our destiny is in His hands.
With this assurance, we just need to pray and not murmur, worry nor complain. To murmur is a rebellion that is likened to sin of witchcraft and will bring us to destruction. 1 Samuel 15:23. We have understood that in the days of Moses, multitudes were murmuring against him for lack of water and food. Those who were in rebellion were not able to inherit the Promised Land but die in the wilderness.
There are times we question ourselves why God’s promises are slow to be fulfilled. For this, we need to check our spirit if we have laid down our old nature of murmuring, complaining, which are all filthiness and rebellion, which comes from old nature of wickedness of heart, required in James 1:21. Such tree does not bear good fruit and will be cursed, causing them to be withered and thrown into the fire. Matthew 7:19. Instead we need the implanted word of the Lord to empower us to save our souls and to overcome all difficulties that are before us.
Moses in his days were faced with problems that are not easily solved like the situation today. Yet because of his life of intimacy with God and reverence before God, the Holy Spirit guided him through and gave him strength and courage to overcome all the difficulties he had to face before Pharaoh to deliver the Israelites from bondage and the harshness in the journey to the promised Land. Without the close intimacy with God and consistent prayer life and reverential fear of the Lord, he would not have detonated the landmines. As leader, he need to have confidence in the Lord in whatever circumstances and would not allow circumstances that test his faith to deter him from yielding to the spirit to overcome all the snares of the enemy.
So let us lift up the high standard of God like Moses to encourage those who are fearful and weary with the truth that will set them free. John 8:32. The key at this moment is to quench all the fears, which are fiery darts aimed at our soul. God be praised!
