Psalm 31:24 KJV (King James Version)

Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, All ye that hope in the LORD

Pastor's Commentary

We are taught that being strong is a positive virtue that is admired by others. But it is not restricted to the physical. We need to be strengthened, mentally and spiritually. It has to do with being resilient which means being able to withstand or recover quickly from difficult conditions or in the face of opposition.

However, all of us get weak during our Christian journey. There are times when we can’t find the strength to withstand or continue. It is at those times we can be encouraged by God’s Word for today. Thankfully, we have a resource of strength that goes beyond our capability.

The key to obtaining this strength is our hope in the LORD. That is to have a positive expectation knowing that God is able to provide whatever is needed to face all opposition. His Spirit within us can resist any spirit in the world. So, be encouraged today.
