“…I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me…” (Phil. 4:13).
Some days are a delight and we never want them to end. Conversely, there are those days that will not end soon enough. What makes these days different from one another? The events of each day.
On some of those days, we feel like champions. We feel like we can take on the whole world and its problems. All we need is a cape and an emblem on our chests. On the other days, we want to crawl back into our beds and sleep our lives away to avoid dealing with the pressures of life. Where can we find the needed balance?
First, we need to understand that no day is like any other. Why? Because each day has its own set of problems (Mt. 6:34). So we must recalibrate our thinking by living one day at a time. This, of course, is no solo effort. It calls for assistance apart from ourselves…in other words, yes, we need help.
This is when we look to the hills because that is from where our help comes (Ps. 121:1). Jesus promised to send us another Comforter when He left to return to Heaven (Jn. 14:16,18). This Comforter would provide everything we would need in moments of triumph, as well as, in moments of weakness and defeat. So we turn to Jesus and ask Him for power on those days when we feel as though we have nothing left to give and He promises that He will do it (Jn. 14:14).
In the end, we do not have anything to worry about as we take life one day at a time. As we enter each new day, all we need to do is to ask the Lord for His assistance and power throughout the day. His Word lets us know that we can accomplish anything through the power of Christ living on the inside of us….
