Strength Today

Rely on the Lord! Be strong and confident! Rely on the Lord!

[Ps 27:14]

He gives strength to those who are tired; to the ones who lack power, he gives renewed energy.

[Isa 40:29]


Leaning on Him, make with reverent meekness

His own thy will,

And with strength from Him shall thy utter weakness

Life’s task fulfil.


Should we feel at times disheartened and discouraged, a confiding thought, a simple movement of heart towards God will renew our powers. Whatever He may demand of us, He will give us at the moment the strength and the courage that we need.


We require a certain firmness in all circumstances of life, even the happiest, and perhaps contradictions come in order to prove and exercise this; and, if we can only determine so to use them, the very effort brings back tranquillity to the soul, which always enjoys having exercised its strength in conformity to duty.
