STRENGTH FOR THE JOURNEY
There are “woods” and there are “woulds.” And there is a great difference between the two of them. We know that “forests” are made of “trees” that we call “woods.” And there are many Christians who have “woulds” in their lives.
Every now and then we hear some say, “I know that what I am doing is wrong – but I’m going to do it anyway. I would do the right thing but there is some thing inside me that is stronger than me and it makes me do these evil things. I would do the Lord’s will, but there is some thing deep within me that continues to make me a slave to sin and I would give it up but have not been able to.”
That’s being lost “in the woulds.” But the Psalmist decided that he would not be lost in the “woulds.” Rather, he confidently cried out from the depths of his heart and said, “The Lord is my strength and my defense; He has become my salvation!”
We are never sufficient in ourselves to be or do all that God would have us to. We have proven this time and time again: we often intend to do what was right only to realize that our best and most earnest efforts were not enough. We needed someone Who was above us and beyond us but willingly and lovingly lived within us.
Jesus said, “Without Me you can do nothing.” But Paul gave us the solution to our lack of strength and the resource that is available to enable us to do God’s will: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!”
If we would do right and live right, He must be Lord.
Prayer: Often, Lord, we would do what is right only to fail. Strengthen us with Your Spirit to honor You always. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture for Today: Psalm 118:14 The Lord is my strength and my defense; he has become my salvation.
