THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
The "Strong Man" at the circus squeezed an orange.
Then he squeezed some more.
Finally, he squeezed and not one drop of juice came from the orange.
Then the "Strong Man" challenged the audience, "If anyone can come and squeeze one drop of juice from this orange, I'll give that person $500.00!"
No one moved.
But finally, a little skinny elderly lady came up.
She took the orange and with determination on her face gave it a mighty squeeze.
And out came a drop!!
Everyone was amazed!
The strong man asked, "How can anyone so tiny do this?"
The lady answered, "I was the treasurer for the Baptist Church for 45 years!!"
Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God:
I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
Do you, Christian, ever feel weak, tired, worn?
Do you sometimes need a reserve of strength that just doesn't seem to be there?
Remember, God has promised to be with you!
P> He is God:
Who created all things by the power of His Word,
Who keeps the earth in orbit,
Who supplies the sun and stars with their mighty light,
Who "Who maketh the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind:" (Ps 104:3),
Who has promised to be "with thee!"
He has promised to both "strengthen" you and "help" you!
Do you, Christian, ever feel spiritually weak?
Do you sometimes feel concern that there isn't enough strength in you to face the temptations and difficulties of the day?
Remember, He is God Who promised to be with you!
He is God:
Who washed you clean in the blood of Christ,
Who presents you faultless and spotless before the throne,
Who "uphold(s) thee with the right hand of my righteousness."
And "greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world" (1 John 4:4).
He will never be unfaithful.
He has never failed.
His omnipotence cannot be exhausted.
His grace is "sufficient" for all your needs.
When we are weak physically and/or spiritually, let us call upon our Lord for ONE MORE DROP of His strength!
