Daniel 11:32 “but they that know their God shall be strong, and do exploits”.
We are in an age where will and faith fail. Many people who do not take the word of God seriously are being weakened daily. Some trust in their connections, wealth, their abilities and human strength, but the Bible has made us understand that man cannot survive by his strength. 1 Samuel 2:9 “….for by strength shall no man prevail”. This is because, according to Zechariah, it is not by [our] might, not by [our] power but by the spirit of God.
Man, on his own cannot help himself; the strength and capacity of man is limited except he draws strength from the word of God. This is why God said woe to them that trust in man. God knows that without Him man cannot achieve anything.
Sometimes atheists have attributed success and achievements to their power. They think these feats are based on their power. They do not understand that God stands above all. For it is not of him that willeth nor runneth but of God that showeth mercy. This is why God wants his children to trust him. And we can only find this strength through:
- Studying the word
- Having constant fellowship building up our most holy faith
These and more will help you to stand strong (Ephesians 6:12-18). As Daniel wrote, only those who know their God can truly do exploits. There is darkness in our world today, the people who would come out victoriously are people whose trust is completely on God.
2021 is our year of Seeking the Lord, Strength and Stability. You cannot draw strength from whom you do not know. You will have to seek Him through His word and find Him to know what He says for within any situation or challenge. Focus on Him only and stand strengthened!
