How should we respond in these situations?
How can we have the strength to be victorious?
Zachariah 4:6 tells us “not by might nor by power, but by my spirit says the Lord Almighty”.
What situation are you facing that seems overwhelming? Bring that situation to the Lord, asking Him for the strength you need, seek for counsel.
Don’t Run Away From Your Challenges: Face Them and Go to Meet THEM HEAD ON!
When the Last Supper was ended, Jesus went to Gethsemane for a quiet place to pray. He knew what was about to happen. He knew Judas was at that very moment consummating the plot to betray his master.
Jesus could have stayed in the upper room. He could have hidden somewhere. He could have tried to escape. But instead He went there because He knew He would be easily found by those who wanted to kill Him.
It’s impossible for any of us to even to begin to imagine the weight that was on Jesus’ shoulders. He knew what He must do. And even though He implored God in all earnestness for deliverance from the ordeal of crucifixion, He completely yielded His own personal will to God’s divine plan.
Jesus going forth to face His destiny with courage, faith and supreme trust in God reminds us of young David running toward Goliath (1 Samuel 17:48). David did not try to avoid the challenge before him. Nor did Jesus. HOLD ON; TRUST HIM AND HE WILL COME THROUGH FOR YOU!!
